Howdy everyone! Some of you may remember I posted this room several months ago but had to temporarily pull it. Some of you mentioned that you were bookmarking the entry, so here it is again in case you want to resave! For those of you who haven't seen it I hope you enjoy.
All photos click through to Flickr and some have additional notes.
It started with an inspiration photo and then veered way off course. The shelves were purchased from Pottery Barn. They were on sale at the time, and I haven't checked the catalog since the most recent version arrived. Other new purchases include the rug, chairs and seat cushions, purchased from World Market. Oh, and two of the glass floats. The curtain panel as purchased last year at Pottery Barn. It was the last panel. We cut it down the middle and I serged and hemmed it to make two filler panels. We've also added seat cushions, which can be seen in the first image.
Paint color is Wasabi by Valspar. And also...as much as I love our shelves, they were a splurge. I found this DIY solution on Pinterest that may serve as inspiration.
The prints of Panama above the wind came out of a magazine from 1913. My maternal grandmother found it while rummaging through an antique store here in Charleston in 1955. She cut out the images, framed them, and sent them to my parents while they were visiting my grandparents in the Canal Zone for their first Christmas.The wrought iron table was purchased for our patio when I was a child. We repainted it Charleston Green last year before our move.
The lead crystal lamp bases were purchased at an estate sale for a steal. Michael rewired them and cleaned them up. Here's the Before | After shots.
The side tables were made in the Canal Zone by my great uncle. They're made of mahogany, I believe.
Purchased from local antique shop for $22.00.
Swag lamp won on eBay and rewired by Michael.
Glass float. We used to have a large antique float that was a gift to my grandmother in the 50's when she worked at Gorgas Hospital in the Canal Zone, but it fell from one of the trees several years ago and broke.
The ultimate approval!
Thanks for looking!
Make with the Sauce!
