The master bedroom as it appeared in 2009 after the room was painted Sherwin Williams Antique White. The dresser is a garage sale find. Originally white with gold accents and hardware, it was painted what may be SW Rain Washed, I can’t recall for sure . I faux finished the hardware, using bronze paint and rub n buff patina.
The dried hydrangea, in the antique basket, are from our Endless Summer Hydrangea.
I added a Pottery Barn duvet cover and shams and an accent pillow. The dresser is seen at the side of the bed. On the opposite side is the black table, now in foyer. The dresser has been moved to the walk in closet.
When we finished the condo guest room, a couple of weeks ago, J and I talked about how great the white bed looks in the room. The idea to have white in our room at home was very appealing.
Why didn’t we use the white bed from the condo?
I am slightly vertically challenged and quite sure I would need a step ladder for climbing in and out of that bed; not such a great idea for G’ma who is, now and then, called to the “facility” during the night.
When we were out running around buying the Ralph Lauren lamp, for the foyer, last Monday, we had a bright idea to stop at Ashley and have a look around. In a fit of impulse buying we purchased the white bed, Prentice, by Ashley.
The iron bed has found a home with one of our daughters.
I haven’t decided if I want anything above the bed. I like a fairly uncluttered look.
If I find something interesting that makes me take a second look, I may consider the possibility.
I subscribe to the idea, you don’t have to adorn a wall just because it is empty.
Perhaps a row of white ironstone plates, all neat and tidy.
Something to think about.
With the living room makeover underway, I wanted to find a new home for the Pottery Barn bird prints, purchased on clearance several years ago. The master bedroom mantel seems the right spot for two of them.
The faux birch bark votive/tea light holders, sitting on a mix of mercury glass stands, may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I like the organic texture they give the mantel arrangement.
Most of the accessories, for the makeover, were found around the house. One exception is the bunny I found, at Marshall’s Osage Beach, last week. I moved the tureen with dried hydrangea in from the foyer and set it in a white pasta bowl. A third Pottery Barn bird print hangs above the chest.
The lamp is from Lowe’s.
The coverlet and euro shams are from Pottery Barn clearance several years ago. The embroidered sham, one of two, Ralph Lauren from HomeGoods, a few years ago. The paisley comforter and shams are also from HomeGoods.
We did not want an all white room, therefore, the bench, alder wood armoire, pine table and chair and the table, shown below, remain.
I removed the burlap on the chair seat, revealing the original blue and white check fabric.
The table was purchased at the Bombay outlet (now closed) several years ago. The mirror is a garage sale find.
Two more PB bird prints can be seen through the door. The vintage lavabo was purchased at an estate sale a few years ago.

Matted and framed calendar pages above the round table. books and stone birds, Lowe’s lamp and potted ivy in a white ceramic container. Postcard dish is from Nell Hill’s several years ago. Architectural piece/furniture crown from All About Home, Troy MO.
