Have you ever been overwhelmed at the task of furnishing a new space? In 2020 when we purchased Century View Lodge, we had to fill it top to bottom. Since it was mainly to be a vacation rental, we really needed to focus on function, durability, and of course, style. But I am not one for going and buying out a showroom plus it would have been ridiculously expensive. I require charm from a bygone era.
It was no hardship for me to do some second-hand shopping. Today I am focusing on showing you one of the four bedrooms in Century View Lodge, Mountain Laurel. We named all of our spaces. The design started with the name. It informed the colors as well as the feel of the room. When our eldest daughter is with us, this is her room so it seemed fitting that we made it a little more "precious" than the other spaces. Here is how the room came together.
The most important thing in a bedroom is obviously the bed. I found this oak beauty at Better Way Bargains, the queen size I needed.
Some of you purists may cringe at the fact that I painted the bed but I just had a vision of it being green plus we already had SO much wood in the house I needed to take the rustic down a few notches. Though usually I paint furniture with a brush, I used spray paint instead. It made very quick work of all those spindles plus it dried in much less time than latex.
