I have been "touring" rooms every Friday for a long time now on Kelly's blog, but have never taken the time to participate. I love seeing inside other people's houses. This week is master bedrooms. Last week I meant to post--it was kid's rooms. Our master bedroom is pretty TINY--not much to see, so I cheated and posted kids' rooms and our master bedroom this Friday.
I obsessed so badly over these antique twin beds when I found them at the flea market that the man who sold them actually talked the lady who bought them into selling them to me. If the girls ever share a room, I'm planning on painting an "L" and an "M" in the oval that's on each footboard. I painted them pink and distressed them.
I don't know why this piece looks quite so orange in the picture. I got it in college from a designer I babysat for--the door was broken pretty badly and my dad fixed it. It's probably my favorite piece of furniture in our whole house.
I know I need something over the bed. One of these days I will get around to painting something to go there. My dad and I made the headboard when Jon and I got married and I recovered it for Mamie's big girl room.
The sideboard was her changing table. I have to hang onto it for baby # 3 one of these days... I bought it at a junk store when I was pregnant with Lilly and fixed it up and painted it.
Same story with the chest of drawers. I bought it for $47 and my dad spent forever rebuilding the inside of it--the drawer guides were all broken. (If you ask him, it probably wasn't a great deal :)
Pretty tiny, but I do love it. I got my bed for $17 in Atlanta at the Rooms to Go outlet when we were engaged. My dad had to fix it too (sound familiar?) and then I painted and distressed it. I would love to replace it with an iron bed one day.
