BEDROOM DECORATING: COTTAGE STYLE

I love my cottage style bedroom. More and more it is really beginning to reflect who I am. This past week I have made two new additions to my room. I got them both at auctions and I'm really loving them. I thought I would share one of them today and save the other one (which my physical therapist told me that if I don't stop lifting heavy things my shoulder will never heal. OOPS!) until next week. 

You may remember that the corner of my bedroom looked like this.


I liked everything about it except for (unfluffed pillow) the rather empty corner and the bed. Another OOPS!! I may have given away what the second thing is I bought. 

When I saw this dress form at the auction last week I knew I loved it. I wasn't really sure what I was going to do with it, I just knew I wanted it. 


It sit around for a few days until a lightbulb went off (yes friends there is a tiny bit of light still up there) and I knew it was going to be perfect to fill in my corner.


I was right. I love it, and I can also use it for a photo prop for my Etsy shop.

You'll have to wait until next week to see my other fabulous purchase. It was well worth the aching back and shoulder.

  1. Laura, I love your new purchase. When I pass something by, I may think on it a bit...if it is still there next time I look, then I may buy it. Telling myself , it was meant to be. :):) Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  2. I often do that too, Susie, but when at auction there are rarely second chances. My other purchase, which I will share next week was an exception.

    1. It is finished I think. Well there are some things that are for sale, so I will probably have to make some changes at some point. I am keeping the dress form, though :)

    1. When I went to PT today and my shoulder was still really sore I asked my therapist if there were some thing I should be doing at home. The response was there were some things I shouldn't be doing. Uh oh, I think I just failed. I'm definitely a bad girl :)
