Decorating with Quilts

June 9, 2019

Hi Friends.  I'm still here.  Have some things in the works, quilt-wise.  I finished the green and blue Edinburg square quilt and decided it isn't what I need for the gift quilt so it's on our bed!

 

 Love these colors.

 I've been working on another project that I wanted to share.  I am thrilled with how it turned out.  Do you decorate with your quilts?  I do.  I had an image in my mind of a bedroom suitable for our grandchildren and other guests.

 

This is the before. The picture was taken at night and the globe on the ceiling fan is an amber color so it darkened the room quite a bit.

Now the glorious after!  I am in love with this room!

 I found the vintage handmade beds on facebook marketplace and refinished them.

 The rug is from Wayfair. The little chest was another facebook marketplace find.  I painted it with Annie Sloan French Linen chalk paint and put a little dark wax on it.

The photos are some I had from my recent visit to England to see my grandchildren.  I purchased prints, matted and framed from Snapseed.   The sconces were Amazon purchases and I did the "magic light trick" where you pull the bulb out and velcro battery LED puck lights inside. I could not be happier with this little room.

 (Before I hung the photos) I played around with other quilts on the beds.  I plan to change them out for the seasons.

 I also have two quilt ladders, baskets and crocks filled with quilts.  How do you decorate with your quilts?
