As promised...here are some shots of inside our place. I know it was that long ago that you don't really remember me promising, but I did! Promise ;-)
My gorgeous friend Bianca from Ivy Loves Jack is pretty handy with her camera (she's an all-round creative/talented girl!) and spent quite a few hours here shooting and then editing these shots for which I am truly grateful!! It was a dull and cloudy day for the shoot to, so she did such an amazing job with these. I just love how they turned out!
I won't talk too much about the pics, just know that this is always a work in progress and things change around here pretty regularly as I'm sure you do at your place too!!
*Vintage beds that I found in my favorite second-hand shop for about $65 each
I'm not going to paint the beds...I kinda love them just as they are!
*Tony's band posters - he tries to get them in the house anywhere he can! The girls don't even notice them or ask what they are ;-)
*Most things in this room are vintage, the exceptions being an ikea throw, freedom flamingo cushion and typo owl.
*Target glass lamps with recovered shades (that I did ages ago and am now a bit over!)
*My DIY floor rug that I've stapled down, does not really go well in this room but I had nothing else...yep it has a rip in it from moving the bed!
*Headboard that was our old garage door that I stripped back to this.
*I upholstered the base (and need to cut off the excess fabric obviously!) because I dislike valances and the ones that have the elastic seem to slip off all the time.
*2 x antique hospital beds pushed together to make a queen bed...more or less...the mattress is squished in there. My mum bought these at auction when I was about ten and they are 3/4 the width of a normal single bed. I've never had them powder coated and possibly never will. These beds mark the beginning of my love of old things and I'm pretty sure I will never part with these!
*The big lamp is on my to-do list...way down the list.
*Again, most things are vintage finds.
*The number 8 artwork you can read about right here.
Hope you enjoyed!! Stay tuned for more :)
