Pink Saturday/ Sneak peak at pinks in my apartment

Welcome to another Pink Saturday! For a list of other participants, go visit our gracious hostess Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.

Well folks, I am returning to the realm of the sane and normal this week. Here are some sneak peaks into my new bedroom. I have only a few things moved in there so far, but am excited about how it's going to look. This is a bigger bedroom and I have more room for all my girly stuff!

Remember this wicker settee that I found at an antique shop this summer? I paid only $20 for this! What a bargain! This is the real wicker too, not that resin stuff they make nowadays.


Here's how I am dressing it up for the new bedroom! I wanted something nice to sit on where I could sit up to read, but still put my feet up too. I think this is the perfect solution! I got some wood sheeting cut to fit the seats, and bought some big pillows. Then I threw one of my bedspreads over the pillows to create this little loveseat. There is a lot of pink in the cover, and in two of the pillows.


My plan is to put this yard long roses picture above. I got this picture on eBay a few years ago. I love the antique moulding around the frame. It cost quite a bit to ship because it's heavy, but it was worth every penny as it was exactly what I was looking for!


Here is a close up of the lovely pink roses.


A couple years ago I found this pink chair at a thrift shop for only $15. My Waverly pillow looks pretty good there. My intent is to have this chair to read in also, but truth be told, it will sit near my closet and will probably have my clothes thrown over it.

I might take it out back this summer and spray paint it a creamy white. We'll see. I also like the contrast of some wood in the room to offset all the white.

Since I live in a testosterone charged home (two sons, even the dog is a boy), its nice to have my area where I can be all feminine and girly. With so much pink and lace and frilliness, will I ever be able to get a manly man into that bedroom? I guess I'll figure that out when that time comes. Hope springs eternal!

Well aren't you the crafty one. That loveseat was a great bargain and a great idea! I think that maybe I would paint that chair. Your room is getting pretty girly - good for you! ~ Happy Pink Saturday! ~ Robyn

Hi Kady :)

The settee looks really cute! Love that picture too :)

I think the room is going to be darling and you'll have a man in there quicker than you think, but hopefully not with a bra on LOL
