Pink, pink and more pink. When it was time to move bedrooms around, I wanted to create another bedroom that had a little girl feel, but with sophistication. This room was originally our guest bedroom and it was decorated in a shabby chic inspired, bed & breakfast style. Or at least that’s what I called it. White on the walls, white furniture and of course, crisp white bed linens. I wanted to use the same white furniture that we had in our guest room as I created this new space.
Here is a small corner of the completed bedroom for you to see:
I found the dresser on Craigslist (of course!). It was originally off white with gold trim, but I took some flat white paint to it (dry brush technique) and only painted one coat so the pattern of the brush strokes is revealed. I didn’t want it to be perfect. The mirror above it was gold and originally hung above our guest bed. I purchased that beauty at a favorite flea market in Detroit (man, do I miss that flea market!). The lady I bought it from found it in an attic in an old home in Indian Village. I was so glad she found it! Again, I took my flat white paint to it and dry brushed it so the antique gold is slightly revealed underneath. I like the result. What do you think?
There’s also a story that goes with the lamp on that dresser, as well, but that will be revealed another day. Hint: there are some people in life that you are meant to be connected to!!
