I hope you are all having a wonderful Valentines' Day. I got some great gifts, but it is too dark to show them off by taking photos. Instead, I have been decorating rooms that don't exist in my house while the paint dries on the laundry room project. Now, I apologize for the quality of the above photo ( I took it with my camera phone while I was antiquing), but they are beautiful. They are 2 twin size beds with a cane detail.
Look at that detail!
Right now, we don't have a guest room because that is where the studio is. But, I am seriously tempted to go back and get these beauties. So seriously, that I will not tell you where they are hiding. They are that gorgeous! So, I am sitting here daydreaming about what I would do if I had a guest room that I could decorate around these lovelies.
First things first, I would paint them... don't cringe... they truly are lovely the way they are and I am totally a green person, but imagine them a wonderful grey with silver leaf accents

So they will look similar to this:
And, since we are daydreaming and all that, let's cover them with this:
I adore Pine Cone Hill, we have it in our bedroom and it is swoony!
Here, I may go with the predominately white one... I am undecided on this. Oh, and just so you know, in this imaginary room, there are 2 perfectly proportioned windows that the beds will sit right in front of... and there is the perfect spot for a vintage 3 drawer chest.
Metal that is. And there will be a lamp on the chest
Mercury glass, of course... this is a dream room!
and a pretty vintage mirror hanging above
And the floors will either be refinished or painted white. I do think that there needs to be something to warm their toes on, so let's do this:
Dash and Albert Swedish Stripe
Oh I almost forgot to mention that the walls will probably be this color
Porch Ceiling Blue from Martha Stewart found here
above the beadboard, which is white.
And, what swoony dream room would be complete without a chandelier, (this one was original to my imaginary home, that makes it better!)
And to keep it from looking too pretty, I'll add this beat up vintage trunk.
Well, I am thinking about checking out those beds again next weekend and seeing if they happen to be in a booth with a sale. And, they very well may be collecting dust in my garage in a week or so.
Well, back to working on my real life house, with real life projects, removing real life "original to the home" fluorescent lights.
