Tomboy Home Renovation – Our Bedroom

I have been down on the Cape for a few days and planning to stay here with the kids for 2 weeks.  All of the neighbors keep telling me how they love the Cape in August and I have to agree.  It has that summer worn in feel, like an old soft beach towel with faded stripes.  It has been hotter than usual.  I always remember needing a sweater at night for those Cape nights but not now, when I take the kids to the beach at night we are just fine without a sweater.

When we started renovating the house I really had a vision for my bedroom.  I wanted light, airy and easy.  Here are a few of the befores.

Here is the after.  (Please excuse my photography, this was such a hard room to photograph and I feel I did not do it justice.)

The floors just needed a little sand and finish and the walls some white paint like the rest of the house. The bed headboard is from Serena and Lily. The side table from IKEA and the lamp is from One Kings Lane.  The ship oil painting I found at a consignment shop in Sudbury.  I love the colors!

The dresser is from IKEA and lamp from One Kings Lane. I picked up this beautiful oil painting many years ago at a barn sale in Sudbury. I met the artist and she was so sweet.

The view of a tidal salt pond from my window. To the right is the Sea Crest Hotel. Sometimes we get serenaded with  music coming from the bar at night.

 

Field Trip Fridays….

We have been doing a different type of “fieldtrip” on the Cape.  I can’t take them shopping (they hate that – especially consignment or antique stores) so we go on adventures to new beaches.
