I’ve showed all of you our master bedroom before, but my friend Debra, at Bungalow, is having a Master Bedroom linky party today, so I thought I’d join in and do a little update in there. Not much has changed, just a couple of things.
I loved collecting the furniture for this room. They are all mismatching pieces, from different eras, and picked up one at a time over the years, but I think they work together well. The sleigh bed is newer and everything else is vintage.
That blue comforter was a recent find for the end of the bed and I like how it softens up the white coverlet and adds some color and texture. I did end up replacing the old picked coverlet with one almost just like the original. Scalloped edges, creamy white and it works in here.
I decorated this room 4 years ago when we moved in here and went with deep blue to please my hubby and decided that white and gold would be a good complement and we’ve been very happy with it. Most of these fabrics came from Calico Corners and it was fun putting them together.
This TV armoire was an old china cabinet and you can read how I did that way back when I first started blogging. This was one of my first blogging projects. I’ve definitely gotten better at taking pics since then. 🙂
Two of my favorite antiques that have been with me for a long while. That French armoire (from the late 1800’s) came from Scott’s Antiques in Atlanta way back when. I would love to get rid of the carpet in here, but it’s not likely to go anywhere anytime soon. That vanity is my catch all for everything. I’m sure you know how that is, right? Everything get piled on here, but I actually do put on my makeup here and use the old fashioned lighted makeup mirror. That will take you back.
Reflection in the old mirror of my vanity. A couple of you asked about the letters in the reflection, so had to go investigate. Can you believe I never noticed those before? Apparently there were stickers or something on that old mirror and when it aged, it imprinted the letters. It’s an old cloudy mirror. The letters don’t spell anything that made sense to me. I’ve tried cleaning that thing, but it is aged permanently.
Here are the matching vintage nightstands close up (probably from the 40’s or 50’s). I love the detail on these and when you open the door, there are 3 drawers behind it. I always have books and magazines on my side.
Another fun find from a couple of years ago, this chest comes in handy for keeping our clothes organized. It’s probably from the 50’s, not sure, but it is made by Thomasville. I found it at an antique store over 2 years ago.
And that’s another updated peek at our master bedroom. It’s cozy and we do enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by to visit me today!
