A Couple of Changes in the Master

9.13.2012

Oh, how I love buffalo checks. I am always drawn to them like a moth to a flame. When this bed skirt showed up on One Kings Lane a few weeks ago I hesitated for half a second and then hit the purchase button. Sometimes you can't be real sure that the color you see on the screen will be exactly right, but oh when I opened this package it was pure perfection.

I liked the bed skirt from Pottery Barn that was here before, but this one has more of a custom look.

This is a nice heavy weight cotton.

After putting the new bed skirt on I stood there and stared at this armoire. Well, guess what.

It now looks like this. 

This was a very quick and easy project. I just painted two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk paint in Co Co.






Yep, loving the buffalo checks.

Be sure and come back tomorrow for another guest blogger's favorite room in my weekly series.

  5. I love buffalo checks too! I was sad to see the red buffalo check drapes leave te kitchen but I am a neutral girl. That paint really kicked the armoire into high gear!

  6. Very nice!!! Luv buffalo check. Had it in our previous home, and left them in the home when we sold. Now I am missing sooo many things i changed. It was a beautiful little cottage done in a French country theme. Creamy white furniture, checks and toile.... roosters and chicken wire. Traded it all in for a Tuscan design, now I am slowly reverting back!! having to start most of my collections from scratch. But I am getting there...

  11. I love your new dust ruffle. It was the first thing I noticed when I saw your bedroom last Monday. I like your cabinet door insets painted darker too. Was that done before I came over? I dont' remember. Love it too. I just tried chalk paint for the first time today! I'll share that soon.

  17. I love, love, LOVE your new bedskirt! I have been waiting to see it ever since you gave the sneak peak on FB. I am totally crazy about buffalo checks too. I want them everywhere in my house. I have a beautiful sample of a buffalo print in Seabreeze from Calico Corners that I stare at all the time. I'm thinking of making drapes for my dining room with it. I bet drapes made out of the same fabric as your bedskirt for your bedroom windows would be beautiful! I don't know if you could find it. You could probably order a lot of fabric samples and see if any of them are similar. Your bedroom is my favorite room in your house. I'm going to go now. I'm suppose to be staining a table top. :)

  20. Gorgeous! I love Buffalo Check too, ...and found a piece of orange and white yesterday, that I want to do something with for Fall! The hutch looks great with the darkened insets!

  21. Kim, I was just thinking about whether to add a dust ruffle to my bed today! I voted against it because the dogs like to sleep under the bed and it would soon be covered in dog hair...sigh! Seeing yours makes me wish our dogs didn't shed so much, it's beautiful! And the painted detailing on the armoire looks wonderful!

  28. HI! I just found your post through French Country Cottage's Feather Nest Friday and I love your Buffalo checks1 The color is fantastic! Such a creative idea too, to paint the inserts of your armoire to match! What attracted me to your post was your padded headboard. I've been wanting one badly, thought of converting our current headboard but not sure if I should, and was hoping your post would say where you got it (or did you make it?) It's beautiful! I'll be following from now on, looking forward to more posts and pics!

  40. Kim remind me where you got that headboard and how recent was it? Is it just a headboard and you attached it to a frame? I think I am going to switch mine out and I have been looking at them but alot of them have footboards and sideboards. Love your room!

  57. Love the buffalo checks! I'm currently shopping for a new bedskirt, too.

    Also, have you ever thought of replacing the woven panels on the armoire with glass? If you need coverage, you could install gathered curtains behind the glass?

  58. Kim, I too love buffalo checks and the color is great. I was wondering where you got the white quilt on the bed. I have been looking for something like that but have not been able to find anything I like. I think yours is beautiful.
