Earlier this week, I went to visit a local garden shoppe here in Statesboro....The Mad Potter. When I pulled up to the store, I got a sense of cottage gardens, haphazard plantings, lots of statues and hidden garden treats. A little Dachsund named Flower greeted Sam, Madi and I and we headed over to browse the plants and garden items. Much to my absolute JOY...inside was a store filled with vintage dressers, cupboards, tables, glassware and the like. Score! And then I spied this big old ornate picture frame with a chalkboard insert...checked the price (was good) and I could see it above my bedroom dresser. I've been searching for a big old frame for there and who would have thought I would find it at a garden store?
I love the details in the frame. It's actually hung up on the wall now, i had to replace the wire in the back and mount heavy screws onto the wall to hold it. I'm thinking the dresser might need to be a shade more antique white. I have a vision for this room....those curtains are going to be changed out to black and creme toile and I'm on a hunt for either a b/c toile duvet cover or something black and white embroidered for the bed. The bed frame is also going to be changed out to white and distressed The room needs a few more pieces..but all in due time. Just glad I found this lovely frame. I might eventually put a mirror back in it, but for now I like the chalkboard look...have to find some witty saying to put on there!
