master bedroom

This is my favorite room in the house. The headboard was finished in old textured blue casein rubbed through to the red base. Gold leaf was used on the molding. The canopy was edged in cut work place mats my dear mother-in -law gave me years ago. Now I could leave them in a drawer and bring them out maybe once or twice a year or as I did..,folded them cut them into and used them as an edge where I can see them and enjoy them every day.The lamps on each side of the bed were painted yellow when I got them at Goodwill. I painted them taupe antiqued them and added silver leaf that I oxidized. The lamp shades were covered with small silk check fabric and the middle front and back, were covered with French monkey fabric. Topand bottom of the shades were edged in trim to compliment the fabrics.Night stands I painted on the top and edges with faux marble..drawers and sides were done in oxidized silver leaf.
