The master bedroom was put together with things we had,
some older pieces of furniture that were used in previous homes,
and great sale and found items. Very budget decorating.
A Longaberger basket filled with knitting supplies.
I'm still working on that chunky colorful scarf.
That's the extent of my knitting skills.
The bedding, matelasse' set, log cabin quilt set and
the lamps were JCP outlet sale items, 80% off.
The original watercolors were from Larry's parents. We had them reframed and rematted. They look better here than anywhere we've had them in the past. Now, the log headboard was a real find! It was a twin bed that was discarded in my Florida neighborhood on bulk trash day. You should have seen me trying to load these heavy pieces by myself into our van. They are perfect here. Larry joined the headboard and footboard (luckily the same size) to make a king size headboard.
Drapery panels $10/pair .
The set of 4 oil paintings, also outlet deals.
They were found on sale
at the JCP Outlet store.
The colors work great in this room
The wild oil painting above the mirror was from
a church yard sale here. I got it for $4.
Larry built the rustic wood frame from a discarded pallet,
as he has in previous posts.
A Jack Schmitt watercolor we've had for years.
It's great that the art we've had works so beautifully
with the decor we have here in NC.
Rustic frame I found on sale at Target. An old lamp.
A collection of thrifty throws.
I find these handmade afghans at thrift stores here.
I wash and dry them, so they are fluffy soft to snuggle with.
Some are stored in a Longaberger basket.
This branch ladder was found at a local crafts show.
I've added a few lap blankets, a cowboy hat
and rope I found in the garage.
The top of the dresser had an old oil lamp that I've added electric to, a doughbowl filled with sweetgum balls I gathered on a road trip stop by a Florida forrest. That's a poster sized picture of me a few years ago....OK many years ago.
That was carved into the stone walls above the entrance of my junior high school in Florida, Robert E. Lee.
I never knew what it meant, but I do now!
