In Search of Hampstead

My next project is tackling my bedroom.  I have talked about re-doing my bedroom on this blog so many times-


and here

Not much has changed except that I now own the fabric I need pinch pleat panels made in to go behind my headboard.  My Mom can make these but she has been quiet as a mouse when I talk about them, so I am heading to a place off 72nd Avenue to get them done.  This will kickstart the project for me.  The fabric I own for this is below:


Once I get those finished, I need to pick a paint color.  Currently, my walls are a pale blue.  This has served me well for years, but I am ready for a creamy white.  The thought of taking almost everything out of my room to paint gives me hives.

My bedside tables now are small wood (or almost wood) dressers that I had painted a thousand coats of glossy white and added sparkly crystal knobs.  They looked really great for about a month before one of the drawers got stuck and sort of fell apart.  My handyman is currently residing in Amelia Island, so that has been a problem.  They have slowly been disintegrating  and I have been on the hunt for replacements. Of course the ones I want are almost $1,000/each.  They are the Hampstead bedside tables from Williams Sonoma Home.  Yikes, everything on that site is pricey! 


I have been looking at other options that are similar-Hollywood Regency-type..

Lacquer Louis 3 Drawer Table from Ballard Design $399
I would paint it bright white and change the pulls.



Addison Bedside Table from Pottery Barn $299


White Quinn Nightstand from Pier 1 Imports $189.98

There are tons out there but none as cool looking at the Hampstead.  Then I started searching for bamboo white dressers and at the name Henry Link kept popping up.  There are a bunch on eBay and now I am thinking maybe I should buy a pair online, even though there are rarely pairs for sale together, paint them and be done with it.




and then while doing this post, I found these in Vero Beach...

and these



or these from Wayfair that come in white...


So either some hefty delivery charges are in store or a road trip is in my future.  One thing is for sure, before I start tearing apart my bedroom, I need to purge some clothes because my closet is overflowing!  It's all in the plan...

Hoping for a magazine worthy bedroom,
xoxo, kp
