Hello friends...a while back I started you on a "Room by Room" tour at our house. If you were following along "way back then" you may have noticed that the tour just stopped. I realized I still had a few projects to finish up before I showed you around. One of those projects was a "headboard" in our room.
Since the completion of the LADDER CANOPY over our bed...I think I'm finally ready to show you around :)
So, WELCOME...here we are in room #202 :)
(Be warned...this is a little room, with a lot pictures!!)
Shall we start here at our old ladder bed canopy?
The "Mr." gets a couple of stools for his end tables...
The "Mrs."...gets a bench, with a "misplaced" drawer to hide all those books "she" collects :)
We bought 2 of these "grayish brown" dressers from Ikea a couple of years ago...I really wanted to look for unique dressers to paint up, but my impatience won out...Ikea to the rescue :)
I love this distressed blue tool tote is all layered up on the dresser.
Looks great with the "sign" over our bed :)
Side note...did you ever notice these old lower case "t" stamps look like crosses?
Or, that an old lamp with a light bulb (unplugged of course!!) makes a great place to hang your hats and accessories?
I've been collecting these dolly dressers and cupboards for a while now...they work great all stacked up for jewelry and other miscellaneous little stuff :)
Moving around the room...there's that other dresser, in the closet. Can you see in the picture that we replaced the single closet bar with 2 smaller bars "side to side"? I had to REALLY downsize my wardrobe to fit my stuff on one side...sigh...I DREAM of a walk in closet...someday...
A little problem arrived when the wall anchors poked through into the cute little wall shelves we added...but the stacks of books cover that right up. There now you know my secret!
You'd never know, right?
Still moving...still with me?
My husband made me that bead board cupboard for a wedding present. It lost its spot in the kitchen when we found the old ice chest we use for MOMMY CENTRAL. So we squeeeezed it in here...works great for extra storage.
Another idea for storing "bits and baubles"...how about an old mirrored vanity cupboard laying flat for a jewelry box?
I love displaying old photos...these are my maternal grandparents.
And these are my paternal grandparents.
We don't have a floor length mirror in this room...instead these collected mirrors do the trick :)
And this metal paint scraper hanging upside down provides yet another place to hang my junky jewels.
That brings us back to the ladder canopy wall.
As I said it's a little room, so I've had to get "creative" with decor and storage. There are a few other fun little details I'd like to show you...but since I'm feeling a little overwhelmed with this post...and now I think I need a nap :)...I'll save them for another day.
Have a great weekend!
Until next time,
