First here is a picture of the when we first looked at the house. Remember there was a very sweet older woman who owned the home before us so it was decorated how she enjoyed it.
I think one of the aspects of this house that I loved so much was this bay window. But as I said before and older lady owned the place and it just wasn't our style. So out went the border print and in came the paint.
|The headboard we had made in our last place. We made it from old fencing.|
|The curtain rod is obviously an oar. The curtains I actually found in the children's department of Target on sale.|
|After Mike cleaned up this oar that I found in a marine resale shop I noticed it had CAMELOT carved on it.|
|We opted to paint the whole room white except for the bay window wall |
which we painted navy blue
|This gorgeous sailing sculpture was my sister in laws uncles. |
He passed away recently and she asked if I wanted it.
I couldn't believe how PERFECTLY it fit in this space. Its old and I love it.
|All the pieces of furniture (except for the mattress) were either given to us|
or we purchased them very inexpensively at auctions, flea market, yard sales.
|The lamps next to the bed have been repainted now 4 times over the course of the past 15 years. |
They have a great shape, but just need the color adjusted to fit the space.
|She's finally got a name.|
|We will be putting her in the water here and then cruising across the Neuse River |
about 8 miles to our dock here in Fairfield Harbor.
|Our dock which is about 2 block from the house.|
