Day 823: bedroom updated for fall
I just love fall (have you noticed?). Remember last year when I scored some yardage of a great Ralph Lauren plaid fabric? I wanted to make stockings out of it but never did. Then it occurred to me that it would make a beautiful blanket, but -- surprise! -- nothing became of that either. So I finally just took it off the bolt, cut it in half, and put each piece on one of the two beds in our house.
It really cozied-up the guest bedroom (see it before here) and inspired a few little fall-ish updates.
A stack of old books, a few bits of early-fall foliage, and a deer antler (Wes thought I was crazy for bringing it home from an antique store -- but I love it!) on a copper platter warmed things up a bit. And after I gave the green ceramic yard-sale lamp to my cousin, I brought this turned-wood lamp home from Target. The black shade came out of a closet, which explains it disheveled shape.
I even swapped the blue and white plates for some brown transferware plates I wasn't using.
