The Master bedroom sporting a fresh coat of paint is slowly but surely taking shape. I wish
I had taken a picture of the magazine page that served as the inspiration for this room. We
smile at each other and think, ‘Well, it was a good try.’ It had that Gustav/Scandinavian
feel. Really the colors are about the only thing that’s close, but I like it…for now anyway.
Though it looks a little rumpled, the velveteen coverlet was a recent $5 estate sale find.
The ‘hand me down’ mirror and chaise have been a nice addition. I think I’d like to try
Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint on the stained mirror. Have you tried it yet?
Our headboard is new and was oiled rubbed bronze but I dabbed on almost dried up, thick
latex paint, scraped it off (after it was dry) and quickly wiped on and off Dark Walnut
Minwax stain. It definitely looks old and chippy like something I loved in a magazine.
Roman shades (above right) will be hung as soon as I can talk someone into helping me.
It’s a restful room that always makes you want to take a nap when you walk through it.
It’s our favorite bedroom ever!
