I opted to go with the French twist on the Old Hollywood Glamour by adding a wood frame to the head and footboard simply because I really wanted to mix the fabric and wood. My bedroom has so much wood furniture and I love linens, so this option seemed best. What do you think?
I really wanted the detail of the wood frame to be added to the bed. You won't believe what this "frame" was in it's previous life... a coffee table! Yep, that's right, a coffee table. You should have heard the comment from my friend who gave me the table. She was just a tad bit astounded that the trusty table she gave me was now a bed frame! However, at the time she pass it off to me, she clearly had more faith in my carpentry skills than I did, because she said, "I know you can do something with this." I was not so sure, but took it anyway....So here it is after I tore the table apart and fired up the table saw to "stretch" it out to fit the bed. Needless to say, my friend asked several times, "you did what with the coffee table?"I am relived to announce that she is happy with the outcome of her former coffee table.
While I was at the artful creative mindset to change things, I also did a little tweaking on the mantle in an attempt to mix the old with glamourous, but trying to keep it simple at the same time.
I found these old books and had to use them for props in the bedroom too. I also brought back some of the worn love pieces.
The sun is shining brightly, the birds are singing, little girls are riding their bikes, the trees and plants have buds AND I spotted blooming daffodils in a neighbors yard..... Let's all do the Spring Happy Dance!
Have a wonderful day!
