Those of you who follow me know that my Mom passed away last month
and that I have been planning a big renewal of her bedroom in her
memory. In preparation of doing that, I have been going through her
things and choosing ones that had special meaning to her. I will be
tweaking these things a bit to give them a fresher and newer look
while maintaining their integrity. This item was one of her favorites.
Mom picked up this night stand at a consignment shop. While I like the
lines of the piece, I think it really needs a facelift. Mom thought so too
and it was one of the things we discussed doing so I know she would
not mind me shaking it up a bit.
Here is another piece she loved. This little occasional table has a marble top
and I also think it has real potential. I have some ideas ...
More ideas for these two matching pieces.
Mom had two of these matching prints. I will be using these for sure.
I repainted this chair for Mom a few years ago. It used to have a brownish
pickled finish, but we both liked it so much better after I painted it an
off white. I am recovering the seat with this fabric. You may recall that
the other day I showed you a little foot stool I painted and recovered with this
same fabric. No wonder it looks familiar to you.
This lamp ... well more ideas. I especially want to do some tweaking to
Oh and I have some ideas for this base too.
And another piece. Mom had a real love for columns. Maybe she lived
in Rome in another lifetime ;-) All joking aside, this column will be used
So while I am finishing some of the tweaking in my studio, and
deciding on a paint color for it's walls, I will be busy shopping around
my cottage for just the right elements for Mom's room. Stay tuned for
more updates and have a great weekend!
