New project ...for the bedroom redo saga...







Well... it must be springtime, cus I am feeling a urge to tackle my bedroom redo again.. The peaceful... shades of white, cream, and sepia tones.. are all calling to me again!!!






I have always felt I needed something over the headboard.. what I could not decide..picture? mirror? lace??? Could never decide......THEN....I found it last weekend! A large oval frame, someone had added padding and covered with fabric.. A half painted frame...( which I am deciding if I should paint dark or light ) I am adding a before picture....then will post a new one once I redo it. .. I am thinking of covering with a linen type fabric and maybe adding a few other touches to it.



I found a large wool rug from an estate sale which has all the colors that I want to bring into the room and placed this at the end of my bed.....once I did this of course I wanted to paint the bed...



you know how that goes....one thing leads to others....and so on.. and so on...for now my pictures below are mainly my behind the bed project...will be posting more pictures later!

Hi Marlene, does the rug have any light blue colors to it? What are the other colors in the rug? The frame would look great in cream with the stain, but black with a lighter fabric center would look good also. Would you be willing to have a mirror cut for the oval frame. If so then I would paint the frame a creamy white-do the same color for your bed-stain them and then hang other creamcolored frames a little whiter overlapping the oval frame (with the mirror). Does this make sense to you? I love to stack frames over frames or mirrors.....Love Tiina..
