Take me to the beach!
< < < < < < > > > > > >
I’ve been waiting to show you our master bedroom because there are still some items and decorating that I wanted to do. But purchasing those items I want will have to wait for now. So I’ve decided instead of showing off a pottery barn picture perfect bedroom, I’d show you the process. Someday, I’ll have the rug and matching side tables and pictures all figured out, but until then. . . . here’s my beachy cottagey bedroom!
It took me three plus years to get this quilt on my bed because after I made the top, I lost it! I thought I had thrown it away by mistake, but one day it magically appeared. I immediately took it to be machine quilted together and put it on my bed.
I added some quilted trim on the pillow cases to match the quilt and put these beautiful old shutters I bought from my sister, Cindy, on both sides of the window to give the room a focal point. I love the patina they have.
I don’t have a picture yet for this old antique blue picture frame I bought, but it needs to be something with an ocean view. Sometimes when the wind blows here in Kansas (and it blows a lot) I close my eyes and listen and pretend it is the ocean waves crashing against the shore. I take myself to my favorite place, if only in my mind.
