The frames were $7 and $8.00, and the fleur de lis stone thingies were $1.80 each! The big scrolly shelf thingy (yes, I know–very technical terms here) was only $6.00! I know it seems like kind of a hodge podge of items, but I plan on painting everything white-ish. We will someday finish our basement, and it will have another guest bedroom in it. I plan on making it my “project room”.
See the frame? Yeah, it wasn’t like that when I bought it. I dropped it bringing it in the house. I said some really bad words (over and over and over).
I gotta tell ya. I don’t know how these women find all these beautiful pictures on the web because it took me, like, hours to find these! I thought I would give you an idea of the kind of room I’m going for, but good-ness. There was nothing. This is the closest I could find to what I want.
I want it feminine, but not prissy. I want shabby chic, but not too shabby. I would like aged, but not old. Why can’t there be a picture out there to show that? This picture has all the colors I want, but it’s a little too chic for what I’m going for.
THIS picture has the floors I want, but the chandelier is too much. Zebra chair? Doesn’t belong in my dream room.
However, I will take this chair. Hello, love.
These windows? This rug? Oh. My. Me likey. I love how the colors are ever-so-subtle, so it still looks really fresh.
(potterybarn.com)Well, there you have it. My written daydream of my spending freeze purchases for a room that doesn’t even exist. Whatever you do, don’t tell my husband.
