I'm so excited to be almost done with my bedroom re-do. When I was in the middle of it I didn't think it would ever come together. One reason for that is because I had about five projects going on at once. I painted a wall, made a new upholstered head board, painted and stained the top of two end tables and a dresser, made curtains, and gave my antique windows a face lift. This is part of that insanity.
As you can see I took on a little much all at once. But I wanted my bedroom to get done as soon as possible so I didn't have to live in the mess for long.
Part of my re-do was to incorporate two antique leaded
glass windows that I found about two years ago at a yard sale. I have been waiting for the right place to put them and I finally found it.
They cost me five dollars a piece and I have loved them and protected them from getting broken every since. I decided that I would dry bush them and hang them above the dresser that I was working on. I also wanted to hang a wreath or something in the middle of both of them to pull them together and to bring more color to the room. My colors for the room are aqua and chocolate, which I am loving, but I didn't want to get too matchy, matchy.
I had to calm the color down in a few places but it seemed the more I experimented with the colors, the more I liked them.
I then decided to really clean the windows and hang them up. This took a long time because the glass is so delicate and there are so many tiny pieces, but they came out shining and looking so pretty. I found this sconce like decoration (I can't think of whats it's called to save me) and hung it between them. Still not done though...........
Now she's done, and I love it. I really think things came together well. The contrasting yellow begonias seemed to have added depth to the room. My room is getting so close to being done, I can't wait
