Since my collections are displayed in almost every room of our house, I let my husband display some of his collections in the master bedroom.
The master bedroom has an early American style bedroom set from 1976. In fact, the bedroom set originally had brass eagle drawer pulls and 1776 engraved brass pulls too.
I painted the honey pine finish about fifteen years ago with Heirloom White Satin Paint by Rustoleum. I added two types of wooden drawer pulls, and also wooden knobs painted in Hunter Green. I had never heard of chalk paint at the time. I did not sand the pieces but used Zinser shellac based primer. The paint has held up well with very few touch ups.
The chest is topped with vintage ducks. I think the figurine is a Royal Copley, and the smaller duck is a Hull.
Not sure about this duck figurine but maybe a Royal Copely.
The shelf with matching dental molding to the chest, has a 1951 duck stamp that was my Grandfather's,
And also the vintage waterfowl tiles by Enesco that I made-over here.
This is the last of the four Pimpernel place mats.
Do you see that dark thing on the floor by the crock?
It's a vintage cast iron frog door stop that was made in Japan.
He's so cute. I used to have him outside on my front step.
I will continue to share the master bedroom and its collections in upcoming posts.
I am thinking about trying to hang the other three placemats over the chest or dresser. More to come...
