I can not believe I did this!
I have been having so much fun playing around with making design boards.
So I thought if this helps other people…maybe…it can help me!
If you were to purchase the exact items in the design board it would be WAY more than I am willing to spend.
My goal was to use a lot of similar items I already have on hand. I kept this in mind while “shopping” around.
Going with an “Americana Modern Country” look. That’s just what I was thinking in my head.
Similar items I have:
Antique mahogany chest ( christmas present from my husband years ago), yellow lamp, blue and white lamp, art, frames, bamboo mirror, green bench (mine is black,but can be painted), plaid throw, baskets, Navy blue fabric to make the solid pillows, white Ikea curtains and rod.
What I don’t have:
Brass chandelier (I Love this one and will be keeping my eye out). Antique Pine Chest – has been on my list for years, rug, some decorative pillows, blue stool and antlers.
To discuss the bed situation… I currently have a four-poster pineapple bed with a dark cherry finish. It was my husbands parents and as far as he is concerned it is the only bed we will ever own. I like it, but I have had it for 15 years. I would love to change it to what you see in the picture.
Have you seen the new Better Homes and Garden upholstered headboard line through Wal-Mart? One very similar to the design is only $149.00 for a queen! They are beautiful.
I hope to plank the walls and paint them a very light color so it does not get to dark.
I would use the darker chest until I purchased a pine piece, but I really like either one. It’s possible to use them both but that depends on a lot of factors.
I should have added that I have dark hardwood floors.
I would love to hear what you think.
Now to see what I can do to make this happen!
I’ll keep you posted!
