- Did you happen to see these beautiful French twin beds on Mary of Urban Farmgirl’s blog here?
I had been dreaming about a set of twin beds like these for about three years! I had even begun to collect the bedding for them when I saw doubles of items on sale! Am I the only one that does that? Anyway, when I saw these on Mary’s Blog I immediatly knew I wanted them and sent Mary an e-mail trying to claim them as sold (to me)! Mary has thousands of followers on her blog and she told me she did in fact still have them, but there was another gal wanting them badly too. To make a long story short, the beds are mine and I am thrilled with them. This purchase started my guest room makeover!
We had a room upstairs in our home that was one of those extra rooms that went from the homeschooling room when my daughter home schooled, to the e-bay selling product storage and shipping prep room, to the most recent state of toss all the cast off junk room.
- to this:
I’m so excited to have another functioning guest room! Once the beds were in place I probably made 30 trips down to my basement where my Redeemed Vintage showroom is located to raid it for accessories. Which ones you ask? All of the leather suitcases, all of the wicker baskets, the hotel silver bowl full of toiletries on the desk, the gilded fur chair, the awesome brass lamp with black shade (I love that lamp!!!) the cute little ironstone bowls on the desk, the industrial bin under the French vanity stool, the French vanity bench (really that never even made it into the shop!), the vintage camera’s and binoculars in leather cases, the copper wall art/tray over the stacked trunks!
I want to give a shout out to my daughter, Michelle (my own personal visionary!), for all the great inspiration images and ideas she sent me to make the room inviting to girls and boys, men and women! I could have made it so girly with those fantastic beds from Urban Farmgirl!
I would love to hear your thoughts. I have been busy replenishing my accessories, painting and upholstering several new items for my next sale. If you like the kinds of things that I used in this guest room makeover, you may want to come to my next Redeemed Vintage by Invitation Sale Event. Send me an e-mail if you would like to be added to my guest list.
Here is a sneak peak at what I have been working on:
