A Touch Of Copper

I broke down and did it! And even worse I drug Joel into it… Yep, I went to Wimberley Market Days last Saturday with my left-over birthday money and husband in hand.  I found a few goodies, I wasn’t really looking for anything so I showed restraint.  One thing we have been keeping our eyes open for is a reasonably priced queen size iron headboard for our bedroom.  It is easy to find a full size antique iron headboard but queen is pretty impossible.  I found this one at Restoration Hardware that I really like

but am not going to pay Restoration Hardware prices.

There is a booth at Market Days I go into every time that has super inexpensive wrought iron items.  Well, this time we found a queen size iron footboard for $28!!! It’s a little short so were going to add some length to the legs but for $28 it was definitely worth it.

I want to share with you a project I worked on for a customer.  The customer’s house has a fabulous Spanish, Hacienda style with warm colors, worn leather furniture and wonderful artwork.  They had two bed side tables in the master bedroom that looked like this.

They love the pieces but the french, folk art look did not go with their bedroom.

In the master bedroom the walls are painted dark brown with a bright green accent wall.  Above their bed is an amazing painting of an agave plant with shades of green and turquoise.  Next to the bed is a large copper mirror.

I painted the body of the pieces a kelly green shade and faux painted the fronts to look like aged copper.
I love the way they turned out and they look AMAZING in the space.



I will post pictures of them in the space once I get a chance.

Hope you all have a great ending to your week. Take care!

With love,
