Shabby Chic Bedroom

This is the larger of the two bedrooms. We knew we wanted to use Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic bedding from Target for both bedrooms so that was our starting point. She has so many pieces at reasonable prices that it is a quick and easy way to get a look with out to much expense.
Our next stop was the antique mall which had two old doors wearing suitably shabby shades of pealing pink and green paint on them and a sweet pink lamp. The builders cut the doors to fit as head boards and hung them for us.
The chair and lamp provide a quiet place for guests to relax.
An old dresser gives them a place to put on their makeup and set their stuff.

  2. Ohh I love this bed and the pink sheets with the frill and the bedding and shams.

  3. What a great room! Not that I could ever have a room like that in my house. Between doggy foot prints and kool aid stains it would look awful in a week! LOL

  4. I love this room,the bedding is gorgeous and what a great use for the old door,now thats what you call recycling!Great!
    I enjoy reusing and revamping bits and pieces and putting thing to good use and if we can't use something we pass it on,it helps to keep things out of the landfill!
    Love from Kathyann and the girls

  5. What a gorgeous picture of St. Cecelia! Is there a story behind it? Where did you get such a beautiful picture?
