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