Week 3! We are half way done and so much more to do.
Well, I've been busy shopping (aka thrifting aka bargain shopping) for some furniture and accessories for the room.
I went to the Elkhorn Flea Market a few weeks ago and scored some great pieces.
First up is this amazing vintage rug...
It's a 6x9 indo-persian(according to the expert) rug probably from the 50's or 60's. I got it for $125. It is currently being professionally cleaned and was told it is worth around $2000. Score!!
I got my inspiration for this makeover from the colors of this rug.
Who doesn't love a pair of chinoiserie lamps...
(these are going to flank the tv)
and a vintage luggage rack (it is the guest room after all)...
I snatched this faux bamboo chair from my neighbor's garbage pile a few months back...
Some tlc and an upholstered cushion(with the fabric below) and this chair would be good as new!
I got these original vintage paintings from my trip to Scott's...
I'm going to use the top one and hang it above the bed.
I also purchased the fabric for the headboard and bed skirt. It is a linen bled (Wave Circa Indigo by Waverly) from Jo-Ann's. I scored the hot pink piping from ReStore ($2 for the whole roll!). The grosgrain ribbons are for the Ritva curtains from Ikea.
Lastly, I wouldn't be able to complete this room if not for the help of my Etsy partner, friend and shopping buddy Erin (@egigliadesign).
She found some unbelievable pieces for me...
a pair of vintage nightstands
a vintage tufted bench
this vintage sputnik chandelier!
Can you imagine the room with all these pieces?!!
I have a feeling I'm going to be sleeping in this room when I'm done.
Now let's see what the others have done.
