Pillow Storage, painting the end tables and some drama with black

Good morning friends.

In the midst of the show madness and furniture transformations to show you, I had a bit of a switcheroo in the spare bedroom. We found a piece on kijiji I totally intended to add to the sale but, we got there and went up the 2 flights of stairs the sellers forgot to mention we would have to carry it down, heard the fantastic story of the pieces heritage and saw that wood. That cupboard never had a chance in hell of leaving our house once we got it there.

Once we got it into the room, there was too much wood with the end tables I didn't love anyways. Hmmm... buy another set or paint.

Paint won.

Therefore welcome to the domino effect redone bedroom. Still romantic but, now with the drama of black.

i switched out the small rug that was here for a large german grainsack

the end tables are now black. #missmustardseedmilkpaint typewriter black. love love them now and they look great with the brass lamps.

i took the gallery down beside the bed and hung up a portrait of an old lady that was displaced from our bathroom reno. i moved some of my gallery-ness to the wall with the chair and cupboard.

and there is my beautiful new stripped pine armoire that holds my ridiculous amount of pillow covers for all seasons.

they are coming off a bit bluish in the camera but they are black black. it took a lot of dark wax to get them to the shade i was looking for and then added the distressing. the brass and black knobs were in my stash from last year at hobby lobby

i also took down the chandelier i painted white 5 years ago and painted it black  and added round bulbs for a more modern feel

the striped grey and white duvet cover is from ikea and i plopped a few grainsack pillows in green on the bed.

I am really enjoying the redo and as much as I loved the room before I adore it now and feel like it suits us better and ties in with the rest of the house by adding the black.

Have a great day,
