Master Bedroom Sitting Area Refresh

While at the grocery store the other day,

I always make sure I visit the floral department to see what goodies they had for me.

The roses were on clearance. So a beautiful bunch of creamy white roses landed in my cart.

The Adventures of the Traveling Pillow

The Adventures of the Traveling Pillow was playing over and over this past weekend

when I received my newly made pillows from my friend Linda.

I could not wait to place them in a spot that I thought they were going.

Hmmmm. . . do I love it here? Or do I love it there?

A Table Makeover and A Mossy Candle

It took me a while and after careful consideration

weighing the fact that this table was not a family heirloom or an expensive piece of furniture,

actually a very inexpensive piece from Bombay Company many years ago . . .

I decided to take the plunge and paint it.

Accent table-Housepitality Designs

This accent table is in the master bedroom sitting area. It originally had the typical

Bombay dark wood stain. I painted it with Annie Sloan Pure White and distressed it.

Here is what it looked like before: (table on the left)

I knew as soon as I started painting it, that I would love it. No regrets.

I left the original finish on the drawer and slide out tray.

Now I will move on to paint the table on the other side of the sofa.

When I was placing the candle holder back on the table replacing it with a candle

rather than a faux boxwood ball, I noticed it was a bit stark. It needed texture.

Moss Covered Candle-Housepitality Designs

So I got out my bag of moss and my glue gun and I covered the battery operated candle,

with the moss. Now I would not recommend using a real candle if you plan on lighting it! 🙂

Love the way it turned out.

Easy peasy!

I think I will be trying some other finishes on my battery operated candles.

How I Struck Gold

How did I strike gold? . . . Well. . . I did not REALLY strike gold,

not sure that gold is in the hills of North Carolina.

However, I did strike a deal on beautiful gold and crystal sconces.

So when you find a deal, you feel like you have struck gold!

While browsing through an antique mall in Virginia last month,

I spied something shiny and twinkly.

The Holiday Master Bedroom

In keeping with the more simplistic holiday decor, I decided to dress the master bedroom

with the Pottery Barn Winter Birds collection as I did last year.

I did use different pillows and accents as the room has definitely changed from last year.

I just love this bedding that can take you right through with winter months.
