Our master bedroom is as good as it's going to get, folks.  I actually think it's looking pretty cute.  The most recent additions we made were: a "new" dresser and artwork.  Last winter I was surfing Kijiji (the East Coast version of Craig's List) regularly for a dresser and found this one.

Welcome to our spare room.  Stylish, no?  This room is a complete disaster but the dresser's cute, anyway.  So when we picked this guy up last winter, the previous owner was moving into a nursing home and hoped to take the high boy version of this dresser with her.  Her son told us if they decided to sell it too, we would be first on the call list.  Luckily, this summer we heard from him and decided to buy this dresser's brother.

He's cute, right?  My favourite things are the brass pulls.  I just think they're the greatest.  And around here, the only way I know how to buy mid century modern stuff is on Kijiji.  I have yet to find a store in these parts that sells anything of the kind.

This is the side of the room I have never shared on the blog before.  It used to be a blank wall with a white particle board dresser (Wal Mart special lent to us by hubby's mom when we first got married).  Now we've updated to honest-to-goodness wood from the 1950s (1960s?) with awesome brass pulls!  To complete the look I had wedding photos framed for hubby for our five year anniversary.  Five years?  It's time to make it official - put up the photos.  My parents didn't have wedding photos until their 25 year anniversary and I could really see us heading in that direction...

And there they are with a little less glare.  I went to a custom framer with the idea in mind that I would get white boxy frames.  She had these pre-made gold ones in typical sizes and they were quite a lot cheaper than a custom frame.  With this option I still was able to have mattes (three!) so I was sold.  I think the gold is actually quite nice with the hay in the photos; it's better than white would have been, I think.  I had three photos done but this wall is too small for all three so one ended up in our living room for now, which is fine by me!

As far as I know that's the end of the "Master bedroom" posts.  I don't foresee any other changes in the near future!  Hope you enjoyed.  Thanks for stopping by.
