A (bed)Room With A View PT 3




My suitcase sidetable..I know.......nothing new....but these have history and I love 'um!!!! 



  The bottom suitcase was my Uncle's. Check out the stickers...they're real!!!






 He and this case traveled all over the US and Cuba in the 50's. He was a magician's assistant in the burlesque circut...if that suitcase could talk....well.. .maybe silence is golden. 





The middle one went through the 1906 SF earthquake and top one was brought back from Argentina by my Hubby. He had good taste even then!!!! 
                                                                                
Here is a little before and after of the picture frames. Cheap blue plastic frames from Walmart.


Now rusted of course!!


These 3 VIEWS in bedroom totally changed how I feel about my bedroom. It is a place I want to be now. I think that is why we nest...it can heal and comfort us and make us very, very happy!!! What do you think?

Hi!

Whao! I have to say. Thank you so much for all the good words about my blog. It`s kind of my "baby" and I`m happy when other people likes it to. Thank you for the hole post about me and my blog! And the link here on the right side!

Yes, I`m trying to write in english each time I make a post. But I`m not that good in the language... But I`m really trying. *smiling

I hope you get the point!

So you have moved to the US? Or did you grew up there?

Smile from Liv in Norway ;O)

(Ps! I`m not a famous person. *smiling
But I have been in a few magazines with my little home. And soon I will be in one more! That is exciting!)

Have nice days!

The frames look great. What a neat way to spiff up some cheapo frames and make them "you."

What a cool paint job on the frames! Thanks for joining the Power of Paint Party (POPP).
