Since I started blogging fourteen months ago, I have shown bits and pieces of Blue Creek Home and I have posted many BCH snippets. The only complete rooms I have shared are the guest room, the laundry room, and our master bathroom.
I am going to start sharing more of our house, starting today!!!
If you would like to see our master bedroom, come with me.
Welcome To Our Master Bedroom
This is the wall that you see when you enter the room.
This is my side of the bed!
“BCH Original” pillows get piled on the bed.
I can’t find wall space to hang this vintage…maybe antique tapestry.
Sometimes, I drape it across the bed just so I can enjoy it.
This is G-Man’s bedside table.
The print is a view of old Auburn, AL many years ago.
Maybelle and Bella love to hang out under our high bed.
It takes a 21” drop bed skirt and you don’t find these in stock anywhere,
so I usually just leave it unskirted.
This is directly across from the headboard wall.
I moved the mannequin to the other side of the dresser after I took this photo.
In real Life…
this is where “Ginger” and “Maryanne” usually have their sleeping kennel!!!
To the left of the dresser I have a vintage architectural piece
and the mannequin that used to be bright green.
She got whitewashed, but a little green is shadowing through.
My mom sewed most of our clothes when we were young.
This is a dress from my early teenage years.
Details of the architectural piece.
The dresser had never been decorated to my liking.
You might remember when I did this makeover to the left of the TV. It was okay, but it wasn’t quite right.
I changed out the lamp. I think this much taller, black one looks better. I couldn’t find a shade that I liked, so I had to do some serious adapting so that the globe would fit.
I already had everything that I used for the dresserscape.
That isn’t even a word, is it???
I bought this at an art gallery when we were in Jackson.
I love water colors. I love sailboats.
I had several of these old wire baskets in the laundry room.
Alex came up with this idea and I really liked it.
I used little clips from old curtain rings to attach a photo of my grandparents to the front.
Al’s mother is on the right.
I recently bought a handful of lovely dried hydrangeas at the same antique mall where I found my Waterford stems at such a great price.
A photo of my mom is propped on a blue Mason jar inside the basket.
This is William Harrison and Amanda Adeline , my Pa and Ma Galloway.
I never met Pa, but Ma lived to be in her 90’s. She was the only grandparent still living when I was a child. She was one strong woman with so many wonderful stories to share. I miss her still.
Caroline and I came up with this idea. I stole this large vintage basket from the laundry room too. We thought my pillows would be fun piled up in it.
Most of these are for sale at The Shop @ Blue Creek Home.
These double windows have a wonderful view of the lake.
Each afternoon brings great light to the room.
I made the window treatments from quilted fabric that I found at a real bargain.
I found this cute sofa for $40.00 in Ft. Walton Beach last year when I was visiting Alex.
The fabric was pristine and there was no odor whatsoever.
The little bench came from a junking trip with sister #4 on our way back from visiting her daughter, Emily, in St. Petersburg.
The chippy white finish and the old worn velvet are perfect for the room.
I love these large petite point pillows. They came from TJ Maxx years ago.
I drape my vintage lace pieces here and there until they become pillows.
I used some of it on the front pillow in the basket on the dresser.
I have no idea what the tray used to be, but I have had it a long time.
It’s content changes often. Right now it is holding old glass bottles.
The photo doesn’t really show it’s incredible patina.
The needlepoint chair was a great find at a fall “Cash and Carry Sale”
at “AmericasMart” in Atlanta.
It’s a great reading chair.
I have had these orange, French, stacking tables for a long time, too.
They fill in this corner very nicely.
This tall grapevine vase holds greenery, twigs, and more dried hydrangea.
The arrangement adds much needed height to this area.
The columns on opposite walls help visually divide the bedroom from the small sitting area.
I have a wood grain finish on them now.
I am thinking about doing them in a creamy distressed finish.
(You may have noticed that neither base has been done yet…shh)
We are back to square one with a close up of my bedside table…more hydrangea!
I hope you enjoyed the tour around the master bedroom. I just don’t invite anyone into my bedroom you know!! Just my best friends!!! I am glad you came.
