Antique Bed

Just a little teaser...I did a bit of fluffing in my guest room. We added some larger white pillows for extra softness, and to give the bed more of a comfy feel. I have saved up many a thrifted pillow shams and covers in white over the last year, designer ones as well. All I picked up for no more than $2.00, gave them a good washing, and stuffed them with feather downs. The large French Feedsack pillow is from Tracey at French Larkspur she has an incredible shop. We're all familiar with her beautiful blog. The weather has been dark and gloomy here, so I couldn't get a good shot of my bed. I added an antique finish for this quick pic, however I'll take more photos later, as well as finish a pretty project to go in the room, and I'll be picking up some new drapes today. See you all back on Wednesday, xoxo tami

  6. What a lovely room and I am sure it will be even better when it is all done. I am curious...did you use one on Kim Klassen's textures for the first picture? I have downloaded some but I don't know how to use them...is it done with layers. All of these editing techniques are so much fun, but there is also a great deal to learn. Thank you leaving such a nice comment on my post: Simplicity.(-:

  9. OOOOooo...Tami, gorgeous... gorgeous... need I say it again? Gorgeous! Love the Frenchy feel and softness of the room. I love finding linens while thrifting, too. You can throw them in some Lavender bleach and they are better than new!

    Thanks for sharing Tracey's site. I'll have to pop over!

    Take care, ~Michelle

  14. Aaah, Tami, I really love your style. I feel I could just sin down into that bed and have a lovely snooze.

    It looks so gentle and restful but I love the little vintage touches, like the gorgeous grainsack pillow, that make it uber-cool too.

  18. Love the antique finish on the photo. Those are so fun to play around with. Just this week I was pulling out some fancy white pillow cases that I had forgotten that I had. I need to get some more pillows to put in them so I can display them better.
