Last Look at the Bedroom

This is the last look at the white bedroom for a while. You have  been so sweet to encourage me. The bedroom has many small details left, but I want to enjoy searching for them. For example, I want a very narrow, but long *distressed* bench at the end of the bed for the coverlet at night - maybe in a chippy-weathered gray? I'll be sewing pillow shams; buying a white woolen throw for the foot of the bed; and accessories like those ice skates pictured below, etc.  I left these coffee-colored sheets on the bed for the photos, but I'll use white most of the time. 
The Cost: Baroque Sconces-ten years old; Picot Hemstitch Cal-King bed skirt $60.00 at Target; Matching king pillowcase set $50.00;  Cal-King 300 count Quilted Coverlet - regularly $250.00 was $64.00 on clearance at JCPenny Home; Tables with beautiful real marble tops (free) - just painted them - pictured *before* below; Ceramic dog - purchased with home. Next Post will be a *no gimmicks* GIVE-AWAY!!!

I just love reading about all of your wonderful finds, for a fraction of the cost. Buying that coverlet for 64 dollars is just amazing. I can't wait to see all of the rest of the things you are looking for. It sound like a wonderful thing to be on the lookout for. It just looks beautiful, I bet you just enjoy being in there.

Janean, Hi! I found your blog when I was visiting Cindy. I like your blog. I did our master bd last yr. I like cream walls with white furniture. I had this antique dresser I got for free. And I painted it cream in your coffee color. Then I was at TJMax I found these two night stands almost identical color as I painted the dresser! I like your collage, the lab dog in the corner reminds me of my lab mix. Thanks for the wonderful! giveaway. Please add me to your Santa list! I've been naughty but I sure would enjoy the giveaway! duenml@comcast.net
