Bed Crowns!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I've been day dreaming about pretty bedrooms ever since I found this lovely bed crown.  I started imagining what if.....
Here's the bed crown....
And here's the inspiration rooms....

Oh, how I want this painting!
Love all the pretty and different choices of fabrics used in this bedroom.

I took the bed crown to my booth at Miss Minnie's and it sold the next day.  Darn.  I wanted to keep it!

Okay, gotta go work on the nightmare chair!

Oooh, I love the simplicity of the first bedroom's crowns and I'll take the chandy and the bedding along with it, Sissie! I'd love to do one of those over a daybed I have in our spare bedroom. I think it would look so pretty.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love the bed crown. I didn't know that was what they were called. Darn I wanted you to keep it also!

Sissie, I am telling you toss that stupid chair! LOL I am tossing around making a bed crown for my bedroom. So glad I was able to get that bed crown for so cheap! I'm just kidding you, I didn't buy it. I wish I had, it would have been the motivation I needed

Beautiful inspiration photos Sissie!! Martina

Cindy said...

Hi Sissie,
I got one of those shelves that I am going to turn into a bed crown too! I loved seeing those photos showcasing crowns! I have so many projects...so little time!~Hugs, Patti

Donna said...

I love bed crowns too, Sissie. The ones you have pictured are so dreamy! There's a great article about them in the latest issue of Romantic Country magazine. And I always thought those vintage Syroco shelves would make the perfect crowns! Now you will just have to find another one for yourself:)

Rebecca said...

I've seen half-moon table-tops being used as bed crowns, too! LOVE IT!



Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

One of those would just make a room! Maybe I need one too. Anyway you probably made someone VERY happy. You do that all the time!

Willow said...

I have never heard of a bed crown, but have seen pics before. Now that would look lovely in my Granddaughters room.

Love the atmosphere of that first room and the painting is lovely! Good luck with the chair. Everytime I get a wild hair about doing something right then and there, no matter what, I always wind up making a bigger mess. :/ Have a good day! Tammy

Tres romantique! That second inspiration photo would have had me buying a crown....even though I wouldn't have a place for it in my home!!!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Hi Sissie, I have made one custom bed crown~it is called a coronet! I think that was very smart of you to add a pic of what someone could do with that shelf to convert it to such a pretty thing!! I love that image the most!

Olivia said...

Oh, that crown is heavenly! I just read your chair post! Ha ha, put that chair in timeout! Go back to it when you have a tiny drop of loving feelings for it....you can do it! Plus, I think it is pretty cute how it turned out!

Sharon Wengel said...

I find that if I really like something I made or painted , that is the very thing that sells first.
I say it just shows good taste , Tee hee

GWENNY said...

Hi Sissie,
I love all those rooms. That is a gorgeous painting. I hope you find another crown you can keep for yourself.

Theresa said...

I have been saving a curvy and ornate shelf that I have for the very same thing, once I paint the bedroom. I love your inspiration photo... that is just what I am dreaming of! I can't believe you took that beauty to the booth, I bet it was snatched up in minutes! Your nightmare chair turned out so sweet, just perfect for the beach cottage. I love blogland as much as you mentioned, never and i mean NEVER have I met so many amazingly talented people that all 'get' eachother. Happy Wednesday Sissie! t. xoxo

The bed crown is beautiful! I have seen those before but didn't know what they were called. I defintely would have kept it for my own bedroom! Now I think I'll have to keep my eye out for one to use at home in Arizona.
