Half the fun of updating is in the hunt! I found a duvet cover last fall at Downeast and have been looking for some furniture ever since. I was trying to get a looks that wouldn't necessitate the need to repaint. Our room has a soft gold paint to it that is warm and cozy. And isn't gold trending right now anyway?? Eclectic is a good word to describe my tastes right now. Just before Thanksgiving I spotted two pieces that I feel in love with right away and my talented man said he would be happy to build a book shelf to go on top of the side table! We were both tired of our dresser being a collection spot for "stuff" and decided we could certainly live without a dresser. I also had a bookshelf that was too cluttered on the side of our bed. We had finally found the perfect solution!
The bottom piece we purchased and the top part Mark made to match.
Didn't he do a fantastic job!! ?
He said this was the first time he had built furniture and had to distress beautiful wood.
I think he enjoyed the process.
It looks awesome!
Great little knobs he scored at Anthropolgie
