Installment #2 Here is our bedroom.
I have just about finished our bedroom. We installed new crown molding (we had to because of the ceiling tile, added a chair rail, made new curtains (quilt still in progress). Husband built faux mantle number 4 for the primitive flat screen (he he he). We added a little electric stove to the fireplace.
See the center piece of the mantle just above the stove? That is the bottom of an old dresser drawer...
Pictures of my little grand babies, nothing I could do with the old fuse box till Hubby builds a little cupboard to go over it.
This chimney runs all the way down into my kitchen, it was so hard to get the crown molding on it to stay, we used liquid nails and a lot of prayer...
I still have a lot to do, need to make bed skirts for both beds yet and finish the hallway which I am going to try and do a mural.
Our little stove was $99 at Menard's. It heats 400 sq feet of space which is plenty big enough for our bedroom.
The door leads to our laundry room which is rare in an old house like this. It was a closet when they built the house but when we bought it there was a half bath in it. Hubby decided I might get hurt running down and up all the stairs to do laundry so he made it into a laundry which is quite convenient.
I still do not know what to hang over the bed. This door is our clothes closet. The end tables have been made since I took the photos, will post a picture of them soon. I have a bow tie quilt in the works in blues and cream for the bed. I do have a big long quilt rack shelf that I could hang over the bed.
I am real proud of these, they were kinda messed up so I painted them with a pewter color. I got them at a local antique store for $16 each! I thought that was a heck of a good deal.
The stencils I bought at Joann's. I still need some throw rugs and a set of lamps. I really would like to have some primitive lamps but the prices are way too high for me, not sure what I will get yet.
Anyways since these pictures I have just about finished the bathroom so that will be my next post. Have a great fall day!
