As you've probably guessed by now, we don't shop much at the big-name department stores. Most of our furniture is mismatched, misshapen, and misconstrued for trash by its original owner. Gee, that sounds so attractive! Yet, somehow it works for us and is very much our "style". Take a look at our eclectic bedroom headboards to start.
Nicholas' headboard consists of a large multi-glass paneled door (or is it a window? I forget) and 2 red shutters.
Old issues of St.Nicholas magazines from the 1920's and 30's flank the white door/window.
This frame isn't distressed enough; how did that happen?
Where is this? Ancient Rome?
Nope, just the master bedroom--featuring two giant columns! Now, I don't claim that they are actually from Ancient Rome or even from Greece, but they are real [vintage] and they're spectacular! They aren't even as heavy as they look, although they are firmly glued to the bottom (handmade, duh!) base and attached to the wall with fishing line. I had nightmares visions of them toppling over on me while I slept, so sturdy assembly was my only request!
Lovely robin's-egg blue and cream chippy (my favorite word!) mantle sits under the mirror. Probably one of our last purchases from a great outdoor-in-the-woods monthly flea market that is now defunct. Sigh.
