Snow, snow go away.....

Wednesday, February 2

So much to tell you!

First a bedroom update.  The only good thing about all this ice and snow, it has allowed me to stay home and paint!  I don't get the opportunity to be around the house for consecutive days and it's such a treat.  I love the color (Behr - Toasted Cashew).  It has brightened the room so much, but still gives a really warm feeling overall.  The bed started to grow on the husband the longer it was in its new position.  Now he loves it! 
I'm so anxious to find the finishing touches - bed skirt, pillows and the right piece of furniture for the wall the bed was on. 
Here are a few pics of the work in progress....

I recovered my vintage bench in linen (50% off at Hancock Fabric)!
The blue pillows are a nubby chenille from PB outlet.

I am especially proud of the bamboo blinds.  They were too light with the new paint color, so I stained them!
I love the contrast.  My curtain panels are vintage twin bedspreads - love them too!

The mirror looks awesome above the newly painted PB headboard.  The pillows will be changed out (soon I hope).

Found this great lamp, where else, HomeGoods!  Love the linen looking shade and the apothecary jar base.
Now for the second item of business...

Starting this Friday, February 4th - Sunday, February 6th, the cottage is having a SALE!! Beds, tables, cupboards, frames, mirrors, baskets, linens, you name it, it's on SALE!  We're open this Friday from 10am to 9pm and 10 to 5 Saturday & Sunday.

Hope to see you!

I just love visiting your blog. I too am trying to finish/start my master bedroom. I need a small sofa and two chairs and a few other pieces. So I will hopefully be able to make your sale.Like I have said b4 I just love the table I bought from you at Chartreuse and COmpany sale not too long ago. I am using the PB syndey palamore duvet and I am looking for some linen pieces. Hope to see you soon.
