You see, the master bedroom has been on my list to paint for a while now, and when I went to a local antique mall this weekend I happened upon this item.
It's a solid brass clam shell that measures around 12" x 12"! First it told me that it was awesome and that it wanted to come home with me and be my jewelry box. I agreed and off I went to the checkout. It helped that it was 50% off and I nearly stole it for only $14.00!!
I know, I know. This piece is not everyone's cup of tea, but I love it! It sings to me...more specifically it inspired me to redo my whole master bedroom! I envisioned this piece sitting atop my white dresser with a navy wall behind. I LOVE IT! I'm not exactly sure that the Mr. does yet so I have to pull back on my reigns a little bit. I created this moodboard to give you an idea of what's in my head right now, and have also been crazy busy pinteresting other inspiring rooms!
Since I created this moodboard I have been rethinking the brass bed and think a sleek crisp white headboard might be just the ticket. Maybe I can repaint this one and save some $. We'll see if it all materializes. I want to make sure that I'm making a good decision before acting on it. But for now I'm loving it and how it ties in with the beachy-ness of our house in a sophisticated (and nautical) way.
I will leave you with some of my inspiration photos via Pinterest!
