The art for the cottage bedroom redo is moving along…faster than I thought, so that is good. The painting to go over the bath tub is almost finished.
My apologies to real landscape painters. I wanted the painting to be mainly sky–something kinda dreamy for tub soaking.
The other little painting is a collage piece made from strips I cut from an old survey left in the house when we bought it. This is it in the beginning…I’m still wrestling with it, and when I triumph over it (I hope), I’ll share photos.
After I finish this post, I will work on my little watercolors while the kids and I watch The Christmas Carol…a little late, but whatever.
Now, prepare your eyes. This is the bed I ordered from Overstock. I will take the bedding, uh, in a different direction.
The prelude to this story is sad. I found the most gorgeous vintage brass bed on Craigslist (in king, so rare), but I couldn’t fit it in my car and by the time I found wheels that could, I lost that puppy (I know, Master Craigslisters, I did so many things wrong here). It wasn’t a good week.
For the bed, I had ruled out wood (too much on floor and ceiling) and painted wood (too many painted pieces in the room). And, ick, an upholstered bed would look nice and soft but would be totally grody in a rental. Metal seemed like the perfect solution. So I was completely crestfallen to lose this brass bed, and new was too expensive for the budget. But this bed from Overstock had great reviews and the price was right. I ordered knowing that I will need to apply some kind of decorative finish–probably soft black. We’ll unpack it this weekend, and I’ll get to work. I’ll let you know!
I’ll save the rug for the fabric post. I hope to procure the fabric today!
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
