As promised I'm sharing my new bed with you all. Before you scroll down to the pictures I must admit that I'm beyond excited. I was absolutely heartbroken that my husband disagreed and refused to buy the French engraved bed. I didn't think I would ever come across a more lovely bed as I began searching through Houston. However, I did! I found this Louis XVI bed (also purchased in France). It's so beautiful and I was blown away that my husband equally fell in love with it. I'm already gearing up to find the perfect bedding. I was thinking something French in white or ivory. However, I'm open to any suggestions. I did come across a picture I was going to use as an inspiration. I'll post that as well.
The bed is made out of walnut, has satinwood marquetry, and ormolu mounts. It dates back to the early 19oo's.
I finished reupholstering my high chair last night. Isn't it adorable! Obviously this will only be used during special occasions and not everyday use. I'll purchase a everyday type for the kitchen table. But I couldn't resist the little thing once I came across it. Besides, children should be taught at a very young age their dining etiquette. I just might fly our children to Florida and enroll them in one of Miss Janice's etiquette's classes when they reach the proper age.
* We are not expecting at this present time. However, we hope to be within the year. I'm just one of those people who likes preplan.
