{Vintage, Rustic Master Bedroom}

This is my bedroom that I share with my sweet husband...


our wedding anniversary date is painted on burlap and pinned to a body pillow.
I painted the date with fabric paint and used safety pins to attach it to the pillowcase.
The headboard is our old basement door from our previous house.
I added a shelf above with a bracket set I found on clearance at Target for $4.98.
Two 1x4 slats of pine are the shelf platform.
A burlap knot cloth over my night stand makes it so I can dust a little less often.
I topped it with a favorite picture of our little twin boys.
The large window is flanked with old french doors - a tag sale find.
The draperies were here when we moved in - 
I just added floor length panels on each end.
The old trunk was purchased at an antiques shop in Atlanta, GA about 12 years ago.

I love your room, Holly! It keeps with your theme of down to earth...all of the rustic pieces and burlap, French doors. With a little romance and femininity thrown in with the sheer curtains. What a perfect balance! I love it all and the pillow is so cool! Well done! :)

XO,
Jane

I love it! It's full of charm and vintage style. I love the huge trunk at the foot of the bed. Your pillow idea is adorable! I'll have to remember that if I'm looking for something creative. That's a craft I could actually do! ha!

LOVELY and SERENE! This made me smile, for I am in the process of re-decorating my bedroom. I have a mantle headboard(painted, rustic)and an ANTIQUE MIRROR almost identical to yours, to go over the mantle! Seems our decor is on the same page!! I do LOVE the burlap dated pillows and the antique windows around your bedroom window treatments..beautiful! Very, very warm and cozy look! Roxie

I love your bedroom! It is perfect. I love mine too but it is very feminine. My husband would really love yours:) just the perfect touch of femininity with a rustic "male" touch too. TFS!

Thank you for your very nice comment, and so nice you want to follow my blog. Such a nice and cosy bedroom, love the door and the pillow. You have inspired me with burlap beore, I set the table for my 50th birthday with burlap as table cloth, all in a very Down to earth style.
