This room was my son's room. The first set of furniture we had in here was sold to my sister for her son to use. We bought the sleigh bed, night stand, and armoire at Rooms To Go. I then added an antique steamer trunk to the other side of the bed to be the other nightstand. I really wish the other pieces didn't all match, but they do. I also added a recliner, that use to be in the living room in the old days when I had a lot of blue, for a place for guests to be able to sit and relax. One day I would like to get a slipcover for this chair. For right now it will have to work as is.
The first picture is how the room looked before I repainted and made several changes. It wasn't bad, in fact it stayed this way for a couple of years. Then while I was browsing my decorating magazines and catalogues and blogs I discovered a new paint color that I just had to try. It is Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter. Even the name of it sounded good. I believe it was in House Beautiful that I first saw this color. It is a very soft gray. Everyone was surprised I was painting a room gray since I really like a lot of color. This was going to be a better backdrop for my ideas in this room though. They would see when I finished.
This was one of the first purchases I made that started the change to this whole room.
I told you I love pillows!!
The bedside lamp bases are from Target and I got the two red Pottery Barn shades for fifteen dollars on ebay. Not just one, both.
I don't normally sew, but I did do some work to update these drapes and you can read that post here.
