Birds in a tree

IMG_3844For about 20 years, I’ve had a tree bed. You can’t see the entire bed in this photo, but it’s a headboard and footboard made of tree branches that I bought over 20 years ago in Ripley, Miss. So if you use your imagination, it’s kind of like sleeping in a tree house.

Growing up, my mother had a pair of metal peacocks on our wall, so I decided peacocks would be the vintage theme of my room.

I bought a pair from eBay for around $20, then I found another pair at a thrift store even cheaper.

boardContinuing the peacock theme, I had purchased a velvet jeweled peacock picture from a thrift store. I decided to place it on top of a canvas so it would be a larger art piece in the room. peacock

I bought a piece of foam board from a craft store and covered it in burlap. Then, I attached it to the wall with a nail and hung it over the foam board.

I also added a string of white Christmas lights to the headboard and a couple of soft decorative pillows from TJ Maxx.
