Today I'm sharing the pictures of the master
bedroom in our place in North Carolina.
Last week I showed the 'bear' themed
The master bedroom was put together with
things we had; some older pieces of furniture
that were used in previous homes,
and great sale and found items.
Very budget decorating.
A Longaberger basket filled with colorful
yarn and knitting supplies.
I'm still working on that chunky colorful scarf.
That's the extent of my knitting skills.
All the bedding: matelasse' cover and shams,
log cabin quilt and shams, pillows
and lamps were found at the
JCP outlet on sale for 80% off.
The original watercolors were from Larry's
parents. We had them reframed with new
matts. They look better here than anywhere
we've had them in the over the years.
Now, the log headboard was a real find!
It was a twin bed that was discarded in
my Florida neighborhood on bulk trash day.
You should have seen me trying to load
these heavy pieces by myself into our van.
They are perfect here. Larry joined the
two pieces; the headboard and footboard
(luckily they were both the same size)
to make a king size rustic log headboard,
for FREE! The rest of the bedroom
furniture were family pass-downs.
Drapery panels were $10/pair.
The set of 4 oil paintings were also
at the JCP Outlet store.
The colors work great in this room
The ceiling fan has a rustic mountain motif.
It has two lights and the top one
can be used as a soft night light.
The wild oil painting above the mirror was
from a church yard sale here.
I got it for $4.
Larry built the rustic wood frame from a
discarded pallet, as he has done HERE
My other thrifted painting is HERE
A Jack Schmitt watercolor is another one
we've had for years.
It's great that our art works so
beautifully with the decor we have here.
Rustic frame I found on sale at Target and
an old lamp.
A collection of thrifty throws.
I find these handmade afghans at
the many thrift stores here.
I wash and dry them, so they are
fluffy soft to snuggle with.
Some are stored in a Longaberger basket.
This branch ladder was found at a local crafts
show. I've added a few lap blankets,
a cowboy hat and rope I found in the garage.
The top of the dresser had an old oil lamp
that I've added electric to, a dough bowl
filled with sweetgum balls that I gathered
on a road trip stop by a Florida forrest.
That's a poster sized picture of me
a few years ago....OK many years ago.
That was carved into the stone walls above
the entrance of my junior high school in
Florida, Robert E. Lee.
I never knew what it meant, but I do now!
