Since the Master Bedroom is still a work in progress, I like to confuse myself by moving to another area for a different project. I moved into what I refer to as the "Daybed Room."
This room is very monochromatic, all whites, creams and khaki. It is dedicated to vintage décor, and oh yes, it does contain a daybed.
Here is the area over that daybed. It has looked like this for several years and it is hard to dust the stuff on the shelf. That is the problem with shelves over beds.
|During...get it all out of sight while you start over.|
|After Here's the new wall display.|
|A close-up of Cousin Jessie from the late 1800's.|
|A framed collection of vintage lace dress collars and old door knob back plates.|
|The large frame came from an estate sale. I love what's left of the chippy paint.|
|The before again...|
|And the after!|
Making small changes like this project make me take a second look at a room that I have perhaps ignored for a while. As I walk past, I actually look in. My husband even noticed and said, "I like what you did on the wall." That is a huge comment for him.
I'll be moving on to other parts of this room next week.
