It Started With a Lamp
This king bed was in our room when we first moved here, during 2003. Eventually we moved it to a guest room, when we wanted a queen bed for the master bedroom.
At the time we moved the bed to the guest room we had it painted creamy white at an auto body shop.
In November we moved the king bed from the guest room to the master bedroom
We moved the bed (pictured above) from our room. Eldest granddaughter put in a request for the bed, should we tire of it. Not being able to say no to our Sweetie Pea…as if we would even try, she is taking this bed sometime over Winter. We will give her the lamps beside the bed, also.
MASTER BEDROOM 2011
When we moved the queen bed upstairs, I didn’t even adjust the height of the fern prints. I threw a quilt over the bed and walked away.
This guest room is where the wedding collecting is happening. So far, we have Miss G’s junior bridesmaid dress and jacket in the closet.
G’pa and I may add our wedding attire later.
The neglected guest room is on the 2013 project list.
When I found the buffet lamps at HomeGoods, last week, I also found the Lane mercury glass lamps. These are similar to lamps found at Pottery Barn.
The new lamps are the catalyst for the makeover of the neglected guest room.
I ordered a headboard the other day. If it works, I’ll be almost ready to finish the makeover and post it here at the Back Porch.
While at HomeGoods, I found two linen pillows, in clearance, that matched the color scheme I have in mind. I plan to also use white quilts and shams.
I photographed the makeover elements in the studio, next door to the guest room.
The shutters, table, and small trunk will stay in the studio. The shutters are a wonderful backdrop. As usual, that idea was strictly spontaneous. I thought of it overnight. J and I moved the shutters and table upstairs this morning (Tuesday).
I shot a few quick photos with the 18/55 kit lens, for this post. I am looking forward to taking time with my photography and experimenting with other lenses and photo projects, in the studio, whether just for fun or room makeovers.
