Remember the pic I found at the Thrift Store?
I thought it would be perfect in the master bedroom. You know how things snowball when you start with one thing and it leads to another?
Well then I found these cuties for $2 each at GW.
I know they were meant for the kitchen but I thought the colors were great in the bedroom.
Then I needed some brown with texture.. so I made this pillow out of burlap.. so cheap but boy is it a mess to sew! But, the pillow is great.
Then I needed some contrast to tie it in.. so I used painters cloth and stenciled this design that brought in the coffee pics.
Then I needed a Pinkie and Blue Boy I found on ebay.. the frames were that 50's old gold so I gave them a little coat of off white to go w/ everything else. (I love Pinky and Blue Boy) as you will see.I adore them. ...
Then came the drapes I made to match the bedspread.
My camera has not been well.. but the color in the spread coordinates w/ the turquoise drapes and they are trimmed in brown. BTW my walls do not have a pink hue, just a beige.
The lamps have a bluish background and are brown w/ brown burlap. Just sat my new frames up and haven't had a chance to put in pics. Of course I pulled out a vintage church fan I have had for years.
Then came the cream of the crop for me.. I am so excited!!!
Blue Boy!!! I found this one at my thrift store for $12.99, and it is wonderful. I think it is from the 50's or 60's. It is beautiful. My Mom had Pinky and Blue Boy hanging in our home when I was a little girl. I am still looking for Pinky. I sure can't get it on ebay.. wayyy too expensive for me.
Isn't he great?
It is textured on hardboard.. I love him.
Finally, I wanted to show you a pic I found at HG last week when I got the sheep and hog.. for only $12.99 for real! The pic is on burlap like fabric and is huge.. I couldn't believe it. It has a little blue in it which my camera didn't catch.. so, I thought I would put it on an empty wall in the BR. And you know what that will start.. yep here I go w/ doing the bathroom over (which it so needs.)
As promised I would pick a winner for my giveaway tonight.. and the winner is...
