corners of my home

Today's corner is in my daughter's room. I was doing some cleaning and picking up and figured it was a good time for some 'corners' pictures. No, it is not always this experience with artists in my family is that they are extremely messy :)
The chair in this corner is an old mohair chair that someone had put out to the street. I made a slipcover from some white denim, that was only $2 a yard once at Walmart. The ottoman was a tag sale find that I also slipcovered~if it looks a bit misshapen it's because the springs really need some work...someday. My husband made the wall shelf and I made the bulletin board by covering some homosote with fabric and adding ribbon.

The iron bed was $5 at a yard sale. It was white for many years, but when we redecorated a year or two ago I painted it black to go with the new color scheme. My daughter had picked out some fabrics, at the time, right before leaving for week to visit a friend. While she was gone Mike & I completely redid her room~lots of sewing and painting~and she was happily surprised when she returned.

More pictures next week.

    You always amaze me with what you do with your finds. Gorgeous!

  4. I love the colours and the way you've used various thrifty finds to pull it all together. We've been renting for a bit but are moving back to our *own* house after Christmas. I'm just itching to start painting and decorating. Thanks for the creative inspiration!

    What a wonderful room. I love the colours.

  10. You are indeed a clever person - this looks really lovely and I find it very inspiring - I am also about to do up my daughters room.

  11. Beautiful bedroom ... I love to read about other peoples garage sale and yard sale finds and how they transform them - proving the 'one man's trash is another man's treasure' theory!

    This room looks so cozy and inviting!!! It is soooo cold outside my home right now, so the sunlight in the photo looks so warm and welcoming! What a lovely room, indeed!

  13. What a beautiful room and what a fortunate daughter. My mom and dad did a similar thing for me one time. They surprised me with a room of my own for the first time and decorated it so lovely. It is one of my happiest birthday memories.

    Oh, I would love to learn how to make an ottoman slipcover like yours! Can you post a pattern or directions? The hard part is the piping.

    Thanks, you're an inspiration!!

  16. Very nicely done and at such bargain prices! Kudos.
