Bedroom Decor A Mix of Old and New

For months I've been scaling back, purging, cleaning and getting rid of all the things in my home that I don't really love. 
I found this beautiful chandelier in a closet.
I had purchased it a couple of years ago at a garage sale and forgotten about it.
It is now hanging in my bedroom and I love it.
The dresser below it is a piece that we found in a thrift shop for about $30.
My husband did a fabulous job restoring it.
The pitchers were flea market finds and the white curtains I made from a cotton sheet.
 Straw hats, old shutters and new white lampshades for each side of the bed dress up the space while keeping it simple.
My collection of old chandelier crystals hang from a reclaimed cabinet door with chicken wire insert.
A stained glass window and some mercury glass candles sit atop the fireplace.
A few pretty accessories
add some interest.
I love this room so much more without all the clutter.
I feel like it's a lovely mix of old and new and holds good memories of times that my husband and I spent treasure hunting together.

  1. ooooweee, you have the best treasures! The chandelier looks great, wait,,, you "forgot" about it, what? I'm glad you remembered it anyhow.
    The mantel is to die for! I was just thinking about "dusting" our bedroom, but now you have me inspired to change it up, maybe.
    I love the last photo of the flower, did you make it?
    Talk to you soon! ♥♥♥

    1. Thank you Marcie! I bought the flower at Michael's.
