Well it's thankfully progressing as I'd hoped it would. Our Master Bed and Bath is a dream come true for the Shabby Chic and all things Vintage, French and Antique lover in me. We started this project with gorgeous and affordable hickory flooring from Lowe's (www.lowes.com). Next on the list was scouring my workshop and several antique hunts to find exactly what I had envisioned. A French Provincial Cane Back Bed (headboard only). Due to it's age and style of the time, this headboard is much lower and a little less grand dios than I'd want, so we mounted it on some Shabby Chic'd wood planks that are invisible once the bedside tables are in place to acquire the height and drama we wanted for the bed statement. The bed is composed of soft white sheets, a mixture of cream and white pillows and one linen floral pillow at the center. About a quarter way up the bed a lovely cottage quilt sits. Under the bed is an amazing Ambusson muted colored, hand sewn rug - found from an amazing rug vendor on EBAY with a storage ottoman at the end of the bed (recovered by yours truly in a neutral burlap for texture and muted color) that adds a place to sit and additional storage.
One part of the room that I really love is the rustic style desk, heavily distressed to let the wood show through adorned by some lovely Shabby Chic Accessories, an amazing Shabby Chic French Large Mirror and beautiful Louis Style Mahogany Stained Wood Chair upholstered in a natural linen.
