our master bedroom…

i’ve never shown our master bedroom.  it was time to redo it.
i started by looking for a headboard, and,

master-bed  shabby story 

i found one…remember my huge tv cabinet? 
when the big tv died, my husband removed the front table, and, i have a “new” headboard.  i love the old tin panels mixed with vintage house trim boards.

i made this sign for the shelf.

this curve legged dressing table is on the right side of the bed. and it is on rollers—love furniture with rollers.

i really love the cute princess-y mirror that is hanging above the table.
my husband added a chandelier on the floor lamp, and a chandelier in the bird cage.

my dress form is wearing my new apron-(cuz i don’t cook:), and there’s a petticoat skirt on the ice cream parlor table.
oh, the $12 each euro shams are new.  they have a tiny ruffles all around and cute bows on the backs.


next to harper, is my huge french cabinet that holds linens.  it’s crammed full, too.

  12. LOVE that headboard! I think you have done fabulous decorating your's so sweet and cozy! You took that headboard piece that surrounded your t.v. and put it to great use in the bedroom and the headboard piece I'm thinking about using in my cottage bedroom may not work, and I was already thinking about putting it around our t.v. in the family room! Funny how our decor minds think alike..........also, the ruffles are soft Blessings~~~Roxie
