Iron Bed

I love antique iron beds. I usually share my furniture makeovers here but this beauty deserves a post of her own. I have had this iron bed for awhile hiding in the basement. I wasn't sure if I wanted to sell it and I thought I should paint her. I decided to dig her out and clean her up before I painted her. The more I scrub her up the more beauty appear. Perfect chippy paint! I step back and gave her a look and there was no way I was going to paint her!
She`s a beauty!
 
Just the right amount of "Chippy"
 
 
She`s a keeper and deserves to show her beauty in my extra bedroom.
I brought her a few years back for a very short song. I save her as she was going to the river the farmer said!
I love her!
 
Stay warm and a have a great week.
Our first full weekend sale is coming up at
February 7, 8 & 9.

Anne

Suitcase Addiction

Each year that goes by I try to organize my Christmas decorations as I put them away to make it easier to pull out each year. I came up with this great idea to salvaged vintage suitcases and store all my Christmas décor in them. This way was super easy to organize and the same time was simple to store and look great in my house décor at the same time. So to say I have a few suitcases is a under statement. I only buy clean vintage suitcases and probably been collecting for about 10 years. This past Christmas season my friends at secondhandchicmarketplace.com made a display of a Christmas tree in suitcases.  I was over the top in love at first sight! My mind would not rest as I knew I had to do this at home! First I had to empty all of my Christmas décor out of the suitcases and I couldn't get done fast enough. I don't live in a big house so finding a place was not easy. This is what I came up with in the living room.
I just love how it came together!
I love the vintage wooden rulers added as stars!
What you think?
 
Hope everyone is staying warm.
Hugs,
Anne
