Bedroom reveal

I spend so much time in my bedroom that I wanted it to be a special 
place that I absolutely love to be.  Besides sleeping there, 
I do almost all my homework in bed, I watch TV in bed, 
and it's where I do all my sewing for my
 window treatment customers.  So ~ when I'm not at my
full time job, I'm in my bedroom (especially in the winter).  I spent
a year decorating the room, mostly due to finances and it is a
hodgepodge of pieces collected over time and from various places. 

The first piece I worked on was the sewing table.  This is where I 
make all the pretty things for my window treatment business, 
Curtain Call.  I haven't been very busy this year with sewing, but 
there were times when I spent all my free time at this table.
  I wanted it to be a pretty place to work.

Next is the armoire.  It came from The JC Penney Outlet and was originally purchased for the lake house I almost had.  It is where I store all my
sewing supplies. 

It has such pretty details.

The headboard was also a great find from Penney's Furniture Outlet.  It was
a bargain at only $29.  I painted it to match the other furniture and 
covered it with a beautiful duvet and lots of pillows.

The headboard is topped with a familiar sign that used to hang over my daughter's bed when she was younger.  When she grew
out of it, I couldn't bear to part with it.

The nightstand is pretty nondescript, but holds a picture of my daughter
and a few other pretty things.

My dresser was found at another outlet store and fortunately was
the perfect color and the only piece I didn't have to paint.


My vanity was a desk I found at a yard sale.  It was a surprise
of sorts, because after I purchased it and was loading it into my car, I
discovered the top was totally ruined.  The lady had set a large
box of books on top of a bad spot to hide it.  So I had to purchase a piece of
oak veneer to recover the top with.  The chair was another
yard sale find and the mirror is from Lowe's.


To add more structural personality to the room, I topped off one wall 
with a shelf that runs from one end of the room to the other. 
It adds some extra storage space.


My most recent purchase and splurge is my beautiful
chandelier that I found at a store that repairs lighting fixtures.
It was a "hole in the wall" kind of place with paper
covering all the shop windows, but was full of treasures and run by
a very kind and lovely Christian couple. Imagine my surprise
when I discovered that it is exactly like a chandelier I saw Tommy 
eyeing on a farmhouse episode of "Sarah's House".

It's a pretty small room and packed with probably way too
much furniture, but it is cozy and has everything I need to
function and be comfortable.

A very lovely and relaxing suite, Cindy. I can see myself spending loads of time in a beautiful space like that. Unfortunately, hubby doesn't like me to decorate "too girly".

What a beautiful bedroom you've created! I love all of your furnishes! Now I sew and I'm loving your sewing area! I like the glass canisters with your threads in. I may have to borrow this idea.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
