Looking at the master bedroom space in the giveaway house at the present, you’d never know the kind of neglected disaster that existed there just a few short weeks before.
Truthfully, it was a bit overwhelming but you know, this ain’t our first rodeo so when the time came we rolled up our sleeves and got to work! Those blessed and beautiful original hardwood floors were still intact so we started with the basics: a sand and new stain for those, fresh drywall, crown molding, trim, and of course a picture rail too. The room was begging for a little bit ( okay, a lot) of fancy so we brought out the perfect shade of pink paint, added in a custom built DIY canopy and a fluffy white duvet, and of course… THE most perfect modern chandelier too. We LOVE mixing classic design with modern elements, especially when it comes to the light fixtures. It’s just so much fun and definitely keeps things visually interesting.
Add in a few antiques, some fresh fall florals, and voíla.
Perfection. Hipster Grandma, at your service!
Ugh, we love it so so much and hope whoever gets to call this amazing historic house “home”, will too.
