I'm joining everyone at Faded Charm again today for White Wednesday.
I have been working on my grandma's room for quite awhile. It's finally taking shape. I thought I would spot light a few things. My first piece of furniture that I bought from Aunt Elsie's was a charming desk with a long drawer and a chunky mirror. I've refinished them in a Cottage White. I found a cool metal, white vintage looking curtain rod. Then I hung some white, with tiny rose buds, panels that tie at the top. On the desk you can see the candle st ix I painted pink and antiqued. My first milk glass purchase from Aunt Elsie's is that neat lamp. I purchased a new shade that matches my carpet and the antique chair from Aunt Elsie's. A few other things on the desk are that antique metal standing mirror, a darling white cup and saucer.
Of course, on the grandma's room desk, are little pictures of my granddaughters great grandma's and great great grandma's. I have more pictures coming so we have all the grandmas, great and great great! Whew, that's a mouth full.
In case you wondering what that wonderful thing is draped over the chair -- it's a table cloth that my grandmother crocheted.
