I decided to make over my room. Mr Farmer gave me the ok, within reason. And I had a reason for everything I bought.
While I waited for things to arrive in the mail, I tackled refinishing my night stands. I will do another post with more in depth information on the process.
They turned out so much nicer than I even thought they would. Mr Farmer was definitely impressed with them.
I brought in an old window sash from the old barn we tore down and an antique desk I was given a while back. I arranged some things I bought, along with some things I had, and dressed up a bare corner of the room.
It turned out cute, I think.
Next, I added some things to the top of the dresser, night stands, and a bench Mr Farmer built me for the makeover.
We rarely use lamps on the night stands, so I replaced them with these decorative candles.
Mr Farmer's is the brightest and plugs in.
Mine is battery operated. It doesn't give off a lot of light, but I almost never use a lamp on my side of the bed.
And finally, my new bed and quilt.
I added some burlap-look curtains to the windows. And there you have it.
The beam on the wall is just a piece of some heavy-duty crating materials Mr Farmer got from work years ago. We put it on the wall to make a mantel. On top of it, we place our family photos and a couple of antique crocheted butterflies that I framed. Under it, I did some faux stone painting. The stone painting and mantel were done years ago, but still look good with my makeover.
