home tour: The Bedroom

I finally finished the bedroom (but I’m sure I’ll manage to clutter it up with knick knacks in the coming months)! I made two chevron pillow cases and a butterfly one, stretched bird fabric onto stretcher bars to create a 16×20 art piece, and mod-podged my Lichgate tree photo onto canvas (which actually didn’t turn out that well if you look closely – you can’t always trust Pinterest tutorials; those women are sugar-coating things).

I love the brick wall in the bedroom. This portion of the apartment used to be the garage, so the brick is actually part of the original exterior of the house built in the 1960s.

Art: Lichgate tree/San Francisco oil painting/Stretched fabric, from old shower curtain/Bridge print, purchased by my dad in Paris.

We purchased the mirror above the dresser at Possessions Recycled here in town. If I haven’t already mentioned it, the mirror that came with my dresser is too tall for our short, basement apartment ceiling, so we had to find a replacement. This one is black with gold stenciling and was made in the 1950s.

My grandma gave us this silver platter; we have no idea what it was intended for, but it works well for my toiletries. She also gave me the wood storage tray, originally intended to display painted wooden cats on the wall.

I’m happy that I managed to be so productive today. Originally, I was scheduled to work, but my boss got her days mixed up, so I had the afternoon off. Daniel was never really clued in to my plans for the room, but he (without my prodding) complimented my choice of fabrics and he and I chose the mirror together, so we both have a room we like now.

    • Yeah! I got a lot done in the past few days. The mirror was hiding in a corner at the store. We went in for a different one, but this one is exactly what I was looking for and suits the look of the furniture, too.

Have something to say?
