So I missed last week’s “Living Room” post so I’ll have to catch up on that one later, but I do have pictures of my Master Bedroom for the house tour. Kelly over at Kelly’s Korner has started up the “Show Us Your Life” series again so I decided to participate this time around because it seemed like a lot of fun.
Here is the main shot:
We live in a 1300 SF Ranch style home from the 1950’s so we don’t have a huge master suite. I love our room though. I like Americana type decor – something you would find in an old farmhouse. I love quilts and rich, warm colors. I love the color palette. The bottom half is actually chair railing and (vertical and horizontal) to give an appearance of molding and paneling from a craftsman style house.
I made the curtains and the Texas flag art, and my mom made our quilt for us for our second anniversary. I also got the mirror above our bed from a swap meet and painted it to match the room better.
This is my dresser – it was my grandparents. I love it because it is real wood and very sturdy. The chair to the right was my parents. It is a little rocking chair that I recovered back when we lived in our apartment. You’ll have to pardon the drying rack there next to the dresser. We don’t have a laundry room for it!
This is what I call my little reading nook. You can see the rocking chair better in this shot. I also love our trunk – got that from my mom. It has been in the family for a bit.
Here is a close up shot of my night stand – the hubby’s is a bit messy. I actually got this at a garage sale for $15 (solid cherry wood) and refinished them. I LOVE them now! I also got my little silver jewelry tray at a garage sale too. You can see my stack of books is getting quite tall!
Last but not least, this is our little “walk-in” closet:
It is a little on the tiny side compared to our apartment, but we make it work. I have every inch organized somehow! I do keep my jackets (not coats but more fashion type jackets) in a little hall closet right outside the door of our bedroom.
Those are just two different sides – nothing really special.
Well, I hope you enjoyed the little trip! Tell me, did you do a tour today?
