I have been promising to show you my mini master re-do for a long, long, LONG time. To say the least, it has been a lengthy process for something that was no more than a redecorating project. I finally have one side of the room done. However, for the life of me, I have not been able to get a decent group of pictures - the glare from the southern facing windows has just been too much lately. On the flip side, when I lower the shades, it comes out dark and funky looking. I am the proud of owner of a basic point & shoot, which limits my photographic abilities dramatically. Boo to that.
Have no fear! I made an executive decision today. having put off posting pictures long enough, I will show you the pictures in black & white! (Personally, I love the way everything looks in a black & white pic, so there wasn't a lot of arm twisting needed.)
Here I took a wide shot to include the bed, or at least part of it...just to give you a sense of where the seating area is located.
As I shared last summer, I picked up the cool, vintage, lettered bench on one of my antiquing stops. I think it is perfect for elevating my little faux woodburner. The woodburner used to sit on the floor, but it just sort of got lost and really needed to be a focal point. I love that little thing! It is very cozy to have the "fire" on - you can use it with or without heat, so I can have the cozy factor in July if my little heart desires!
The rocker is an oldie my mom refinished years ago, when I was still a kid. It used to sit in our kitchen and the five of us children would take our turns sitting in it, hanging out with our mom. I remember sitting sideways, with my legs hanging over, putting on my makeup! Lol.
I will throw this pic in just to "keep it real" and show you just how terrible the color and glare was on the pictures I took. Oh my goodness, it looks like the circus exploded in my room. Let me assure you, things - while colorful - are much more subtle and subdued. I do have to admit that the burgandy wing chair to the left does not even remotely "go" with any of the fabrics in my room. It's a good quality chair, though, and I am planning on recovering it soon - I just have not found the right fabric yet. Suggestions?
So, there you have it - a tiny, black & white bit of my master bedroom re-do. Still a smidge more to do, not much really. Hopefully the finished room will be done soon, a camera upgrade will have happened, and I can share it all with you folks in living color!
Thanks for stopping by,
