I am on the look for a wooden bed for a friend who wants to paint it white. She has a bedroom she calls the Violet Room and it is of course decorated with violet pictures cup and saucers with violets odd dishes and pictures with violets. It is just lovely. She has an old vintage iron bed in there now and she painted green ivy vines all around it and it looks so pretty with the contrasting violet color however after several years she wants a change. So I was at one of the local antique malls and found this bed and sent her the pictures however her and her husband just can't stand to paint a good piece of wood so they thought it was too pretty to paint.
Myself i think it would just be fabulous painted white.
While I was looking around I seen this cute small chest painted RED and I thought where could I put this in my house? My house is full and need to de-clutter some things not bring more in. I would change the pulls and maybe it could go in my home office and I could take a wing back chair and ottoman out to make room for it just thinking out loud.
This one booth had 30% off her chandeliers
I found some small things on sale while I was there. In the new issue of Victorian magazine they have a article about mother of pearl buttons and serving pieces. I found a spoon with mother of pearl and the handle is twisted wire just like in the picture in the magazine.
