Remains to be seen...




To finish decorating our bedroom has been on my mind a lot lately as I really haven't changed our decor in there since we remodeled several years ago. If I had to describe the style that I am hoping to achieve in the room, I'd have to say, it's "Antique Eclectic" for lack of a better way to describe it. The walls are a beautiful light beige with a darker beige shade in the carpet. The curtains in the room are one of my favorites features in the space and bedroom suite furnishing are "nearly" antique. I recently purchased a new set of sheets, feather pillows, and an ecru-colored down filled comforter.

I've long to fill the space with antique photographs, sun-faded roses, lace and pearls, so I really couldn't believe my good fortune when I discovered this metal branch in a "make an ofer" bin while visiting a much loved garden center recently. My mind instantly whirled with ideas for its use while the look on Don's face spoke of his wonderment of "what in the world are you going to do with that?" Needless to say, he did like it, even though I knew in my heart I coveted it a little bit more. Desiring to decorating it has been on my mind, but it wasn't until today that the opportunity to do so actually presented itself. I titled this piece, "Remains to be seen" because that is exactly what this room is to me... a space to evolve into what I envision it to be. I'm still shopping... looking for the "just right" nightstands, TV amoire, a chair, and other items but currently I'm thrilled beyond belief to be able to add this!

I decorated the metal branch using some jewelry from my jewelry box {necklaces and earrings}, the recently created cone, some tags, and a glass topped container that contains a collage inside and a magnet on the back side.I'm excited about the process of making this "one dream that will come true" as the weather won't interfere here!

Oh my goodness! This is just what I need in my sitting room. I have seen similar things in magazines, but until I saw yours, I never thought to make one for myself. Thanks for sharing. When I get around to doing mine I will share as well.
