~My Yellow Room's Inspirations~

Hi Everyone! This is my spare bedroom filled with goodies from my grandma's home. Original this furniture was fitted in a larger room which was painted a light shade of a pretty bleu. In my home it's in a yellow room with bleu accents. My Grandma had two twin beds and in this room I took the two headboards with the rails and made them into a day bed. Over the bed is a canopy with some sheer lacey window treatments attached, I painted a mural on that wall and am in the process to repaint something new, the wall is being sanded this week and once it's finished I'll show you the finished bed. I have some Shabby Chic linens from Target I bought a few years ago in a pretty bleu flower pattern and some bolster pillows in a bleu ticking from Ikea. I love that store.
So this is the dresser with my Grandma's beautiful lamp on it, which I love, sorta a Marie Antoinette country feel to it. My Grandma loved France. So perhaps that is where I got the bug from.
Close-up of the lamp.

I love the detail in it, they are very delicate, so I must always be very careful when I dust.

The other side of the dresser, with the Marie Antoinette country girl with a basket and some spring flowers. I am ready for spring and all the beautiful flowers and smells that it brings.

This is the image of my little watercolour/acrylic painting framed in a lightweight white washed pine frame. Just finished it today, worked on it all last night. After a few goes at it. Another words the first two I tore up and placed them in my oops pile. I just couldn't put my brushes down. This is my version of Versailles ~ Pavillon dans le Parc. I'm going to place in my Etsy store.

So I'm thinking of a little pretty for Valentines Day ~ Roses, maybe. What do you think?
May everyone have a Great Weekend!!!:)

Hi Kris,
Love the lamps I have some similiar that are antique that I fell in love with when I was a teenager, they are now in my daughters room.
I saw "Love me if you dare" What a love story. very different kind of movie and full of emotion. I enjoyed it and will tell my friends about it.
