Hill Country Road Trip

As I sit typing, it's 97 degrees outside.
When Taylor and I went on this roadtrip, it was about 28 degrees.
I'd be happy for somewhere in between.
Ah well...
This was another CL find.
The ad read something like this...
French Provincial Bedroom set-$175 obo.
That's about 1 1/2 hours from here.
We were on the road at 7 am.

Kerrville is in the Hill Country of Texas.
Even in wintertime it's beautiful.
The gentleman we bought the set from was kind enough to help us load it all in the truck.
And he accepted $150 for it.
He just wanted it gone.

The set includes a full size bed, perfect for the guest room.
A small nightstand, and a large 9 drawer dresser with a wonderful mirror.

Sorry, bad picture.
I have a new camera now...so much better!

Here's the bed.

Headboard, wood rails and such a pretty footboard.
You can see it leaning against the headboard.
So far, only the dresser has received a makeover.
A bold and dramatic makeover.
It went from this...

To this!

I can't wait to show you what else she's doing around her cozy cottage.
