Antique Bed and Dresser

Oh my god, ladies…

(I am not aware of any male reader, hehe!)
This decoration business is not for sissies!!!!
My body is SORE from so much moving things around!!!
I am preparing for The Olde Farmhouse Vintage Market in June, so my house is FULL.
AFTER I decorated my guest room for my mom’s arrival,
I found this beautiful bed and dresser I could not pass.

This beautiful set belonged to the gentleman’s aunt. It was passed on to him. He said it should be from the 30’s or older.
This was before:

So, since I had already finished the bedroom, I thought I would “store” the “new” antique set until my mom
had left. She had already seen pictures of her room in the blog, so she is expecting her pink mirror

But this is what she is getting instead:
I run out of space to put it.
This is so heavy, we even tried to put it in the office
(I am turning the office into another guest room
for our friend Maria to stay)
but the mirror covered the window, LOL!!!!
See the little rubber thingys under its feet??
My friend Kika told me to buy the, at Rona!
So I could actually SLIDE this heavy baby from the office back to the guest room without much effort!
I did not know about it… duh. Sometimes I put a rug under furniture to slide it somewhere.
But this is much better!My son and husband had to lift it so I could put it there. SO I did not want to bother them tonight to take it out. I will ask on Saturday.
Poor guys are also tired of moving stuff around.
I love the detail… I think I should NOT paint it…
My mom will like that she will have plenty of room
to put her clothes!
The bed is a little scratched. So I want to paint it white…
Do you think it is OK to paint the bed but
leave the dresser as is?
The paint will hide the beautiful details…
It would be nice with more white pillows but these pillows have photos of my son, my brother and my niece, so I thought it would be fitting to have it in my mom’s bed. The flowers on the wall need to be re-arranged closer to the headboard, since the Ikea bed was taller.
I put the pillows down so you could have a better view of the headboard.
I think it would look gorgeous in ASCP Old White…
Since the furniture in this room was much LIGHTER, I could actually store it with no problems!
I have a friend that wants the Ikea bed. The table I painted and also thepink mirror will be for sale at
I am showing off my “new” antique room at:
