Adding Some Blues in the Bedroom

I bought this quilt at was so Springy and fresh so I decided to add some more "blues" to my bedroom by just scouting around my house and painting a few things! It came with the shams, too~ good deal!

Moved this from my living room. I love old needlepoint stuff. How neat! I found this at an antique store a few years ago.

A vintage blue plate. I think it's French.

My dresser. Found the set of lamps at Walmart - super cheap - part of their "Better Homes and Garden" collection. They could almost go in any room of the house!

This chair was black. Decided to freshen it up with a coat of blue!

Another old plate. I think I'm going to paint the bookshelf I have it on - maybe an off -white. I may do it this weekend.

Vintage blue tin. I think I found this one on one of my shopping trips in Lake Geneva, WI. Lots of cute little shops there. I enjoy spending $$ there!!

I painted this table, too. Used to be brown. Goes with the "blues" now! Isn't it fun to freshen up for Springtime? I see things all around here I want to paint. I'm thinking of doing my front door next. It's beige. Neutral, pretty, but kind of plain. I think a punch of color would be nice but I can't decide what! I'll keep you posted. Have a wonderful weekend!!!


  1. OK, Ann, I'm officially stalking your blog now!

    I love the idea of a brightly painted front door. Ours is red!

  2. It is fun to freshen up for spring! It all looks so fresh and cottagey! Love the blue of the chair. Go for painting the door - mines a bright red and I love how it looks!
