My Dream Room ....

I was just over visiting Stefanie of Rose Petals and Rust Blog ..and checking out her Pink Cottage she has had erected and is now decorating ..she painted the floors in it ..just like my dream room picture that I have stashed away on my travel drive for that day ..(hopefully soon) when we are out of this rental and into our own home.

Here is my dream room ...

I know your probably saying wow that's so simple and plain ..Well ..Yes it is ..and I'm sure knowing me I would have to add on some elements they don't have here ...Like Lots of antique lace pillows and probably some wainscotting to the walls ...but I call it my dream room not because it's exactly decorated as I would do it ..but Because it's so wonderfully Light, Airy, and Serene eveokes a feeling of peacefulness in me ..and after living in a rental I am unable to decorate and make my own ..It gives me hope for what I will be able to do in time.

My main reason for saving this picture was the floor ...I "LOVE IT" I want to do this to my own floors ..I think in a house that even has plywood subfloors it would be just perfection ripping out the carpet and painting them ..then adding some tall Mop Board for base board ...and it would just be simply breathtaking.

As for the Bed ..I think it's Beautiful ..but I think I shall stick with my Antique East Lake Bed ...It has a gorgeous tall carved Headboard ..a matching footboard ..and I added a metal frame so it would accomodate Queen matresses ..then added to box springs so it would be nice and tall ..I alway dreamed of crawling up in a tall bed and now I have one ..If only it had the surroundings to compliment it ..but I know in time it will ...and when that time happens I'll be sharing pictures like crazy till everyone gets sick of looking ....LOL !! Actually if your like me I never get sick of looking and have waited in anticipation to see each step stefanie is taking with her little cottage ...

If you haven't visited stefanie will you should ..Her blog is as sweet as she is...Click HERE to visit ...

If like me your dreaming for that special place or that special room ..don't give up your dream ..sometimes dreams take time...but eventually if you pursue them ..they will come true !

The Lord tells us ask and it shall be given unto you ..I have asked and I now await him ever so patiently.


  1. I love your dream room, it's very pretty!!! I agree the floors are gorgeous... It does look very Serene, a wonderful place to escape to after a long day. Thanks for sharing!

  2. That would be an amazing room.
    I painted my guest room floor like that.
    You have to tell me how to print old photographs on velum, and where do I buy the velum??Thanks so much for such an awesome idea for my tree.

  3. Very pretty room. I did our floor in the kitchen like that in red and white. It makes the whole room happy.

  5. Have you made one of your beautiful white journal books for your DREAMS? I bet you'd have so much fun filling it with the desires of your heart! Like... a beautiful bedroom with a tall bed for a Princess, and cute pale yellow and white painted floor. ;)

    I pray all your dreams come true Sister Sara!!
