~Sweet Dreams~

It seems like I've been telling you I'm going to post about my bedroom for weeeks now.  Well, I'm finally done and what a job it was.  Why is it that everything ends up in the bedroom?  Probably because you can easily close the door when company stops by.  It took me a while to go through all the piles,  paint the walls and finally decorate:-)  The good thing is I didn't have to buy anything new and used only what I already had or was saving for this redo.  Kinda got camera happy, so there are lots of pics. Enjoy! xoxo K.

I've had the dresser since we moved in and still love it.  My sweet lace angel wings that I won from Susan at Evelyn and Rose found a new place to hang.

The lady in the corner was a purchase I made this Summer and had been wanting one with a cage for a long time.   Also found this door out in our storage shed and loved the writing 'First Aid".  Funny thing was that neither my husband or I could remember where this door came from(this might mean we are hoarders..haha)

The iron bed has been with us for many years and the bedspread and pillow shams are from my good friend Shellagh over at Ticking and Toile who also made the chair slips on the chairs in this room...love all of them!  I've had these sconces for sometime now and never knew where to put them, so decided to hang them from these shutters on either side of the bed instead of your usual lamp on the nightstand.

I've had this mantel for almost two years now and have been saving it for my bedroom.....it might be my favorite piece:-)

This cupboard holds our TV and stereo and I got the metal loveseat this Summer and put some Ikea pillows on it.

It feels so nice to have this room finally finished and I can't wait to decorate it for Christmas.  I've been pinning away and you can see some of my inspiration HERE or you can "like" me on Facebook where I will also be sharing Christmas ideas.

  1. Kathleen, this was well worth waiting for. just such a beautiful and peaceful room. so many elements to love, but I think the sconces on either side of the bed have to be it!

  2. It looks fabulous! I know it feels good to have it done. I'm inspired now. I'm trying to get up the nerve to start one of my bedrooms. Dreading it. Because like you said, those bedrooms tend to be the catch alls.

  3. Oh Kathleen, It looks just beautiful!! I love all of the creamy whites and the pop of black from your dress form. Oh, she is a beauty!! If you ever tire of her you can send her to California for an extended vacation! :)
    You did a fantastic job! After the holidays, my bedroom needs to be re-decorated, it has become a catch-all for my family as well.
    Thank you for the gorgeous inspiration.
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
    Sincerely,
    Melinda

  4. No wonder you took so many pictures! And I'm sooo glad! You have such a wonderful style and the collections to go with it. Wonderful, wonderful pieces. I am so inspired to work harder on my "hidden" room too! You are so right about things getting stashed in the master bedroom. Thanks for sharing you gorgeous room!

  6. Thank you for sharing "All" the photos. WOW your room is lovely. The dresser you love...I've one exact to it I redid for my crafty area. it was my grandmothers and no one ever remembers what happened to the mirror. I also have the same metal crucifix that sat on that dresser as a little girl.
    Enjoyed the visit. I wish I had one room that size again to decorate...we downsized and I miss my space.

  7. Oh my! I love your bedroom! This is always the last room to be completed it seems and I am no exception to this rule. I love the color you painted and every little detail you've added. I'm about to start pinning!!

  8. What an absolutely wonderful room. So serene, and cozy and comfy, full of lovely things. How could one not sleep restfully and wake refreshed in such beautiful surroundings?! I know it was a lot of work, but the results are surely worth every minute.

  9. I love what you've done in this room! I have the same bed awaiting paint and a similar dresser, too. I want that door!!! Thank you for sharing the reveal! Love it all!

  10. Can I have your room? I love everything about it, every detail from the picture of Mary to the cross and seltzer bottle ...... Everything. What size is that bed? I'm having a hard time finding a nice king size bed.

  11. Love your R/H French pillow, I have one to :)
    There is nothing I don't like, your flea market style is perfectly inspiring.

  12. Your room is romantic and lovely! I love all the soft neutrals. My bedroom is a "catch all the junk" room, too, so when it is clean - for sure, get camera happy!

  13. How could you not have sweet dreams in that room? So beautiful, and peaceful, Kathleen. It's taking me forever to finish my living room. Now, you're making me want to work on my bedroom too. Thanks a lot! LOL Using what I have on hand too.

  14. Your bedroom is beautiful.
    I was wondering about the size of the mattress on you vintage bed? We have a vintage frame too..but we've successfully stradled a Queen on our frame for years now. People can't believe we sleep in such a 'small' bed. But we do...and finally, after re-arranging our room Memorial Day weekend, we sleep quite comfortably.
    I love the sconces on the shutters and the fireplace mantle...just to name a few of the items in your room!
    ...like sweet dreams. ~Pat

  15. How beautiful. I have the same large IKEA pillows and covers, never would have thought to use them as seat cushions. Fabulous idea! I also have the throw at the end of your bed! :)

  16. Wow! I love your bedroom...so many pretty things. Love the mirrors and all the white. Your angel wings look great in there. Love the things on the sides on your bed with the lights mounted on them. Everything is lovely!

  17. This turned out so lovely! I too, am re-doing my bedroom and it's taking me forever! I want to do it like I have it envisioned in my head, so I'm willing to wait for just the right pieces and fabrics. I know what you mean about "dumping" everything in the bedroom...me too! You are motivating me to get crackin' though!
    I think the "first aid" door is awesome!
    Sweet dreams!

  19. OMG Kathleen! Your room needs to be in a magazine! You have done such an amazing job on it! It is absolute perfection down to the very last detail! Love the bed, the linens Shellagh made, love it ALL! How blessed you are to have such a lovely and serene place to lay your head. Also love the sack rug. Wow. I'll be back again and again to enjoy your photos and get inspiration! Thank you for sharing at BWW! I think it's going really well!

    Have a delightful day! I know I'd just be sitting on that bed and admiring the loveliness from time to time throughout the day! All your hard work paid off huge!

  24. Ohhhhhh My this was one of the greatest posts ever. Where to start the compliments!!! This is so beautiful I could not get enough. Wow you did a great job and every inch of the room is dreamy. I think our bedrooms should be a sanctuary for us and you nailed it with this one. I would not leave that bedroom it is so beautiful and cozy. I could compliment on everything but would take up all the comment space for others!!!!! So I will just say it is breath taking and so so lovely. Love it all. I am going to repin this onto my pin boards. Great job. Enjoy that lovely room.

  25. I love everything about your room. Last night, in the middle, I was browsing your photos. My iPad won't let me leave comments for some reason...but enjoyed looking at them again this morning.

    It looks like a b&b...and a place I'd want to be!

  30. Your room is gorgeous, gorgeous! I am excited because I have a bedspread ordered from your friend at Ticking and Toile due to arrive for Christmas in the pale French blue. It's nice to see how your room looks because after my bedspread arrives I will need to change a whole bunch of things in our bedroom. I don't think the hubby realizes this, lol. Surprise!

  32. Shabby GORGEOUS! Love everything! We just moved and the house is 44 years old (not that old) but hasn't been painted in 44 years, so every room is getting a fresh coat of paint (sand colored). Hoping the house will tell me eventually what color each room wants to be, but after seeing your bedroom...I think I'm gonna tell my bedroom a thing or two!! I have been looking all over for a fireplace mantel for our headboard (waterbed) and I adore the lights on the shutters, that adorable door (hoard on) and I love the posts by your cute Ikea bench! Beautiful hon, just beautiful!

  34. You did a fabulous job on your bedroom. It looks so peaceful. I have exactly the same iron bed in my bedroom. It has been passed down through severeal generations. It used to be dark brown, my DH painted it white for me.

  45. Oh my...sweet dreams indeed Kathleen! I absolutely adore this room. Every piece is unique and perfect. I'm dying over that First Aid door and your caged dress form..sigh! Also, I agree that mantel is THE favorite in the room. You've adorned it beautifully. I'm impressed with how much you have put into this room, and yet it doesn't look crowded at all - everything blends seamlessly. It was worth any work & painting you've put into it. Now this room must be your favorite place to be!
    I'm so happy to see the angel wings here - they are quite content in this heavenly place. :)
    xo, Susan

  48. Kathleen, how did I miss this oh so gorgeous bedroom? Girl, this is probably one of the prettiest bedrooms that I have ever seen. Really..no joke. I love it! :)

    Your style just hits me dead on. I would love to just ditto all you do.

    I am waiting for you to start Christmas decorating so I can be inspired. I have begun but would love a little nudge.

    Blessings and happy Thanksgiving. Amy

  55. just came across your site. We have something in common. I have the exact bed frame in same color. It was my grandparents wedding present when they got married. (1915). When grandpa died in 1979 i got the bed. they had 10 children in that bed and it the original color was brown. I painted it the same color as you did. I love it and cherish the family history.
