Master bedroom
Turned the mirror vertical, not the usual! Replaced hardware with pink glass...my grandmothers rose colored jewelery box...with a ballerina!
I recovered this old chair back and seatSin
I love the saying above our bed...always kiss me goodnight

As some of you requested, here is my master bedroom! I so appreciate all your inspiring comments as room designing Junk Style is my passion. I love sharing it with fellow Junkers!

The dresser, nightstand, hope chest and headboard are our original (1974) maple bedroom furniture! I painted them all white, sanded, distressed and coated with gel stain (this is great stuff) to seal and protect; you'd never it know it was colonial style!! Pink is my favorite color and my husband loves that I love our bedroom; it makes me happy. The walls are oatmeal and the accents are pink, sage green, and white and of course most of my “treasures” are flea market finds. The armoire and cabinet are pine; the Amish community made the shorter cabinet.

acheckeredpast writes: Ok, I like all but one thing..not that i don't like this one thing but consider this...the three windows...don't they "need" something? Perhaps tiny 1/8" valances? Or better yet, swag valances, 6"L w/ 1/8" centers in same material as in now...?
(perhaps its just my perspective but they seem to be "competing" with the large window)
Regardless, you have done a wonderful job with all of it! I like the area in the corner where your sewing machine is. Great ideas! Thanks for sharing! Posted: 8:32 am on January 29th
shabbychick writes: How beautiful! Such a comfy, restful place!! I love how you "re-did" your furniture - definitely gave them an updated look. Love the painted window above the bed!

You did a really wonderful job on your room makeover! Your grandma's jewelry box is special - so nice that you're able to use it!!

Thanks for sharing!

csudderth writes: Wow, awesome redo of outdated furniture. What is the gel stain that you use. I did a stain on some of my trimwork in my house and I just used the liquid glaze/stain and I thought it was a little hard to work with and control. This gel stuff sounds like it might work better.
