In the beginning...
We ripped up the emerald green plush carpet and found paint, tin nailed down over large holes and what would look like hopelessly ruined heart pine floors. Come in: The Floor Guys. Sand. Stain. Polyurethane. Incredible transformation. Like dummies, we did this BEFORE we painted. Lesson learned.
This is the After. I wanted very simple and clean lines. The bed is mesquite. It was custom made for a woman in Dallas and then it wouldn't fit into her house. The platform is one piece and very large. Heavy. Heavy. Heavy. The dresser on the left is my favorite piece of furniture we have. It was a floor sample that I had been admiring for months at Restoration Hardware years ago. I STILL love it. The ceiling fan and fixture are VERY OLD. I'm not sure they were original to the house, but the fan still works like a charm (go Hunter).
The windows are fabulous. Most of the panes are the original wavy glass. I would never even consider changing them out.
The bedside tables came from The Canton Trades Day. A touch of Oriental. The lamps, I don't know what style they are, but I liked them.
This is just for Kim at Savvy Southern Style and her Before and After Party.
