My New Bed With Actress Abi


I sure do love my new bed. Abi is not about to let me get photos of it without her being the star of the show, as you can see.

I finally have the leftover living room furniture out of here, so I thought it was a good time to take photos to show you.


If you recall, I had the big mirror over my bed. But it hung a bit low over my headboard, so I took it down and put up my cow painting.

It's been cool the last few nights, so I folded one of my quilts over the bed for warmth.


I'm trying my other cow painting out here adjacent to my bed. It was in the living room.

Reader Teri, who commented that she'd be happy to come finish the painting of the living room, is coming over at noon. I've never met her, but I'm always so happy to meet a reader!

There isn't much painting left, except for a few places. I didn't finish the wall both above and beneath my window. And there's that inch or so just underneath the ceiling of three walls. 

I'm so grateful that she offered to help and I look forward to meeting her. 


Abi appears to be nodding off, so I'll hurry up and get this photography session over so she can snooze in peace.


I really haven't changed this room up for awhile. Only the bed is new. 

I did bring my beloved battery-operated candle in here when I was spending all my time in the bedroom. Reader Leslie sent it to me last month.

I'm so glad I chose this farmhouse-style distressed bed from Ashley Furniture. I think it works perfectly in this room.

  1. Your bedroom -- or is it Abi's bedroom!?! -- looks very cozy and charming. There is a lot of symmetry, but enough variation in the décor to keep things interesting and enjoyable. I've always liked how the two nightstands are the same in color but different in style. It's wonderful that Teri is going to help you out with the painting. What a good friend!

  4. So glad you are getting some help with your painting Brenda. Love the cow paintings, just wish people would associate them with what you see in the supermarket. I know the penny has to drop and gradually it is happening.

    1. I was concerned about putting the cow painting there because the mirror blandness broke up the vivid quilt colors, but I like it there now.

    I LOVE your bedroom. It is so pretty, cozy, and colorful that it should be in a magazine. Your quilts are such treasures.

  23. WHAT A RAY OF SUNSHINE FOR YOU, HAVING TERI COME TO HELP. HOPEFULLY WITH HER MUCH APPRECIATED HELP, THE PAINTING WILL GET DONE TODAY.
    YOU CAN GET YOUR LIVING ROOM BACK TO NORMAL, AND BE ABLE TO ENJOY YOUR LOVELY HOME IN IT'S ENTIRETY, NOT JUST THE BEDROOM.
    YOUR NEW BED IS BEAUTIFUL AND FITS IN QUITE NICELY. LIKE YOU I LIKE THE BIGGER PIECES AS NIGHTSTANDS AND STORAGE.
    MISS ABI ROSE IS SUCH A PRECIOUS LITTLE ADDITION TO ANY PHOTO YOU SHARE. MY CRICKET RUNS FROM ANY PHOTO OPPORTUNITY. CAN'T EVEN SNEAK A PIC, WHEN SHE HEARS THE CLICK (as I press the screen) SHE'S UP AND GOING. ALL I GET IS A BLURRED IMAGE.

    AGAIN, IT'S WONDERFUL TO KNOW YOUR WALLPAPER ORDEAL IS ALMOST OVER. THANK YOU TERI FOR COMING TO HELP BRENDA, AND THE PRECIOUS PUPSTERS.

    SNUGGLES TO THE PUPSTERS!

  24. Brenda, I think your new bed is perfect for your bedroom with the quilts on the wall and the nod to the farm with the cow paintings. Abi is quite the little performer, isn't she? You have to admit she is pretty darn fetching.

    How generous of Teri to come finish up the painting for you. Bless her heart. And fun for you two to meet, too. Things are turning around, girl! Yay!

    But how upset is Abi going to be with you leaving the bedroom for meals and other things? Maybe you should do it gradually--just a couple of hours to start and then increase day by day? I'm just teasing--after all, you do pay the bills so Abi and Charlie can have such a beautiful place to live with meals served daily! Not to mention health care included, plus lots and lots of LOVE.

  27. I love all the colors in your bedroom. It is just so cozy. I know that when it snows or rains, your home is just the coziest place to be. I am happy Teri is coming to help you. I was thinking earlier this week that if I lived closer I would offer to do that as well. Wonderful!!!!! May I ask what kind of paint you used on your nightstands? It does not look like chalk paint and I love the finish. Is it just regular indoor paint? Continue to enjoy your cozy space.

    1. I'm probably one of the few bloggers that does not like chalk paint. That paint is Valspar Oregano Green.
