Welcome, welcome! When Mr. C
kicked me out asked me to use the other bedroom for my craft room I was Ok with it. My mind envisioned how it would look including colors and other decorating ideas. It would be perfect as a guest/craft room space. But one thing happened, my vision was way off and eventually led to a traveling bed syndrome!
Last year I found a great bed frame from GW and for a whole year, while thrifting, looked for vintage linens for the bed. It was so much fun to be on the hunt for linens instead of dishes! Since I truly, and utterly, do not need anymore dishes e.ver.
It turns out the queen, full, nor the twin would work, the room is just to small to accommodate a craft/guest room space. I’m thinking what the heck am I going to do with this bed? The Charmer really cannot accommodate one more piece or furniture in any of the rooms downstairs. This left me, what I thought was the only option—–my dressing room.
My dressing room isn’t a big space, its long and narrow, but it is a good fit. I didn’t think I would like it there but I do. Prior to moving the bed in I had a small sitting area with two white wicker chairs and a wicker table.
I’ve used a vintage window as a headboard and the art helps make the area appear taller.
The cross stitch is a art piece I finished over 30 years ago. In those days I did a lot of needlework, cross stitch, crewel and embroidery. Needlework, of any kind, has been one of my passions.
Replacing the chairs is now the home to the twin bed. The room is tucked in a dormer, approximately 10 x 15 in size and works perfectly for my dressing area. The linens are thrift store vintage treasures and I couldn’t help but fall in love with the crewel bedspread.
On the other side of the bed is my vintage dressing table., small bookcase, another chair and wicker table. To be honest I didn’t dust because time is really short lately and didn’t take photos. With all that’s still going on dusting hasn’t been a high priority.
Moving the bed from one room to another doesn’t make a traveling bed…but moving it again does. I’ll fill you in where she’s calling home in a few days!
Do you move your furniture a lot? As much as me? Moving furniture until you find the perfect spot is part of decorating, and even though hard work is also lots of fun!
