Final Touches..... my room is complete





My living room is finally complete.  Freshened up and put back together.
I used an old wooden trunk for a coffee table.  I painted it pink....  then white.  I distressed the finish so the pink "peeks" through.  I then hand painted roses on the top and little rose buds on the side.  It is a very sturdy (and heavy) old piece.  I store all of my decorating and "How To" books inside.  I found this awesome old wooden serving tray at the flea market.  It has  hand painted roses on the inside.  It was the perfect size to hold my vintage collectibles.  The last few pictures was taken before I hung the drapes.  The room looks so pretty.  I am so lucky to get to live with all the things I love.
