Update Bedroom Photos - still in progress

The bedroom is still in progress, so I thought I would show you how things are moving along . . .

So, this is what the bedroom looked like last time I showed you . . . 

As I mentioned, I added a chandelier to the center of the room. After searching for a small, but affordable chandelier, I found this one for $79.99 at It started like this:

I removed the crystals, and spray painted it purple, and then replaced the crystals, adding more with purple crystals I purchased on eBay.

Here it is after being hung, the color of the chandelier doesn't show as well with the bulbs lit.

The color of the chandelier is much closer to the color of the drapes and canopy, as shown here:

I also added a side table to the left side of the bed, and added a scarf and a few knickknacks. 

You may notice a small change on the headboard between the two photos above. I added an embellishment I purchased from D. Lawless Hardware.  The pieces come in raw wood.

I spray painted it silver to match the headboard. 

Here it is on the headboard. 

I think that it makes a big impact to the headboard; and much more in keeping with the overall Hollywood Regency theme I'm going for!

I've had a few questions about the mirrors I used on either side of the bed. They were called Versailles, and I purchased them through a catalog site called Home at Five, but they are no longer available through their site at present.

My new chair arrived today, but I'm still awaiting the side table and rug, as well as a new print for the wall. 

This is the chair I purchased (for just $129!), but I have painted the legs silver:

 This is the side table to go with it:

And this is the art for the wall, which I purchased in 18" x 24" canvas.  I will be adding another canvas, but I want to see this one in person first!

Other work to be done:

My original plan was to paint the tables on either side of the bed silver, but now I'm unsure that I want that much silver together. I may decide to paint them silver, and then silver leaf it so that it would have a different look from the headboard and not be so "matchy-matchy". 

Also, my bed linens, etc. are still in progress. I'm looking for shams the right color, etc.

I have to re-hem my drapes, as well. I got confused with the measurements the first time, and left them 8" too long - but much better to have it be too long than too short!!

I'll be writing more, soon!
