Bedscapes and Beyond #1



I recently painted my bedroom a calm taupe. Before that it was red. I needed a nice calm room. The room has hardwood floors. I had leftover carpet remnants which I used as area rugs. The small cream table was purchased at a thrift store. The lamps were inherited from my aunt. The metal piece over the bed has been painted many colors. I spray painted it cream and then glazed it brown. I posted the finial before. It was purchased at a thrift store and repainted and glazed.

The above is what my bed looks like right after I make it. Below is two minutes later.

How beautiful your bedroom is especially with the cute little visitor that I spotted in one of the pictures! :-)

I love your color choice. Mine is similar except that I have a Navy Blue Wall behind the bed.
Caesar looks so very comfy there!

Thanks for hosting a new blog party! I am trying to leave comments on some of the blogs, but Blogger eats them when I try to publish. I use Typepad, and sometimes those don't register either on Open ID. When a Blog Owner only allows comments from Blogger, they are missing out on some good feedback.
