Our Place

A few little things at our place::

A while back I posted about a bed that I wanted to get. Well here it is! We’ve had it a few months now and it’s been great for having extra storage under, not to mention that it’s pretty and white!

I ‘springed’ it up with these yellow pillow cases I got at a recent rummage sale for 0.50 cents each!

I also made this pretty white pillow from a remnant I got as well!

Another pretty little thing I managed to scavenge is this antique window. Last week a very old house across the road from us started to be demolished. After an early morning jog I waved one of the crew men over and asked if he could salvage a window for me! He was so nice and told me to get it after work.

I trimmed the top with a piece of vintage lace.

I have a very similar bed. I just love it. I actually got my powder coated black, but the whit sure is lovely too!

Love what you did with the door!

Looks really nice Shan.
I'm looking forward to doing some new things in the house and the deck and the garden. Love the window.

Looks like a very very comfortable bed. Did you get it with the mattress included or just the frame?

Love the bed - the yellow and white is so clean and fresh looking too!
