Look what I found? For the longest time I’ve been looking for a headboard for the dressing room. Before that I’ve used many different kinds of “headboards”…
Vintage windows which were never tall enough so that you could see it with a pillow in front. Also acting like a headboard has been pictures, a clock and a garden table.
Then I even tried using a vintage pink cottage sign!
When in November, I found this gorgeous rustic headboard that was just too big, ugh!
Then one day I was reading a blog where she shared that she had just found the perfect headboard. It was in another country, but it was a service which is just like Craigslist here in the US.
I don’t know why but I clicked right over to Craigslist and searched for a vintage headboard. Can you belief it…I found one!
But guess what? I can’t find the craigslist photo or the photo I took when I first got them home?
But…look what I found!
Its a twin size iron bed for $25 which included the side rails and the original bolts! The owner thought it was from the late 40’s to early 50’s. It was only $25. Its really heavy and solid.
I couldn’t believe my luck finding it!
I started to move the furniture around which opened space for a sitting area. Then I angled the bed out a little in to the room that opened another area up!
Now, by this time, Mr. C comes in and says the same thing he always says to me. Its getting kind of crowded in here! I kindly replied to “get out”. Ha ha ha. Then I told him to go downstairs to his work room to see what crowded really looks like!
I used the same bench that I decorated for Christmas but just moved it over to the wall.
I mean its an open space and I just had to decorate it…really I did.
As you can see it just ahead of the new sitting area. I found this lithograph over 10 years ago and what appealed to me was the expression on her face? She seems very serene.
Her cottage charm is showing. The dressing room has completely changed beginning with what I found.
Has this ever happened to you? Where a look what I found inspired you to redecorate a room?
