Today with the sun shining brightly I was able to take photos of the Fall dressing room. Did I mention that it has been absolutely gorgeous here in IL. I’ve been working in my garden franticlly getting her ready for winter! This week will be beautiful outside while I collect seeds, dig up tubers and dry the remaining herbs.
For the longest time I’ve not found a headboard for the dressing/guest room upstairs. I’ve even used vintage windows and a picture or two for a headboard. I even used a folded up garden table and somehow lost the picture?
The weekend before last we took Minnie (our vintage trailer) out for much needed getaway and I did a bit of shopping! I found a headboard….a rusty, chipping, cool looking headboard! Ugh its a full size and not the twin I needed!. But it was the rustiest and chippiest vintage headboard, and it was only$18!
I decided to use it above the mantel over the holidays for hanging vintage ornaments on. BUT, it was too tall! Gosh, nothing is going easy at the Charmer lately! I felt better when I realized I’d use in the garden next year. But, then I thought would it be too big for the guest room.
You can’t tell here but it is too big but, I think it works. The arched headboard fits nicely under the eave. Aldi’s had the best chalkboard signs this year for $3!
The dressing/guest room faired the best after the remodel. We didn’t enclose the room with a wall or door to transition the upstairs into an open master suite.
The area rug hides and protects the unfinished bare oak floor. No wall or window trim but we’ll tackle that as time and money eases up
The upstairs was painted with Glidden Antique White except for the bathroom and master bedroom. The color is a good choice from older homes. You can see in the photo that there is no window trim yet.
It easy to see its larger her but I just moved the table a little closer. I also thought it would great place to hang some dried flowers or ornaments.
Do you see the pucker in the pillow cover? When I noticed it it reminded me of a blouse I had that would always pucker across my chest…funny.
A vintage quilt topper found thrifting for $8. Even though not a tradition fall quilt its light feel appealed to me.
I think Our Little One (cat) must of been laying on top. See, no trim around the windows.
I keep thinking how the hard wood floors will look when they are done. The 90 year old floor will add great charm..
I could lay down and stay here forever and dream about when this will be all over…
Feeling sad as I share this vignette and was wondering why? Even though I like this vignette it doesn’t seem what I wanted it to be. The other side of the room is filled with furniture that is waiting to be put back in the bathroom.
I’ll be sharing a few more fall vignettes. Since I can’t seem to catch up so I’m going to just move to Christmas.
Hope you don’t think its too big?
