I've been working on this room for awhile now, bit by bit.
I just recently changed out the lamps.
Don't you just love that embroidery work on the shades? The shades are actually white, but look pink when the lamps are on.
I used some lamps I already had, painted them, and bought new shades. Here's the before of the lamp bases. I used my homemade chalk paint, you can click here for the recipe.
Two of the beds are for my girls and the other one is for a visiting friend or grandma. You might remember a previous post where I explained why I believe everyone should have a headboard, click here if you missed it. These beds have been without headboards for a long time now. Somehow the headboards were not in the budget as we did this and that at the ranch.
I wanted white iron headboards for the room, but also couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. Then I found some adorable headboards, but they were $250 each (x3) I decided to wait.
Then I saw these at Target online for about $100 each. It looks like they have had another price reduction, because they are now $95, click here. These are actually part of Rachel Ashwell's Simply Shabby Chic line. They were on clearance, and you know I love clearance!!
Here's a before photo of the room. It's a subtle difference, but I think the headboards and lamps make the room look finished. Here's a before below. The lamp shades are just too small for the room. I knew that, it just took me awhile to decide what to do in here.
And because I just couldn't leave it along, I moved some other lamps around. Here's what the red chest looks like now with the newer lamps.
Here's the lamps I had here before. I just didn't think the lamps went well with the chest, although the shades had red in them.
Sooo, I'm thinking I'm done with this room finally. Did I say 'done'? I meant 'done for now'.
Here's a list of the parties that I visit on a regular basis. I might have shared this link at any number of these.
