Although it would be really nice to say this room is finished, complete, done!... we still need the tub. The clawfoot tub has had to be put on a way back burner. It will happen. Just won't be in the near future. So I figured I might as well put the room together as if it weren't going to have a tub.
I did manage to fit in a full size bed. The chair, however, still needs to be upholstered. Can't decide on the fabric. Other than that, it is ready for overnight guests.
Personally, I wouldn't have put the commode in the middle of the wall. But this was already done when I arrived on the scene. Perhaps some sort of screen placed in front? I'll be honest, when in use, you feel as if you are on display.
This is from the doorway. The light from the 2 north windows is very bright and makes it almost impossible to see the window treatments. They are there... just very sheer. 2 of the walls are covered with wood harvested from the ceilings in the old living room. The area above the wood planks, the ceiling and the area around the half circle window is rusted sheet metal from an old barn Chester tore down. No, we are not going to paint it. It's perfect just the way it is.
This wall was the outside of the original farm house, which was built somewhere around the turn of the century. It was uncovered after Chester tore off 2 layers of sheet rock and a layer of the ugliest paneling I have ever seen.
The tin ceiling panel on the wall was rescued from an old building they were remodeling in downtown Ft. Smith. It is in it's original condition. Well, the condition it was in when I got it.
I picked up this wonderful tri-fold Venetian mirror at an antique auction in Ft. Worth.
This is just inside the door, at the end of the bed.
The chair is one of two, plus a settee that I also got from the Ft. Worth auction. They are Egyptian and were in deplorable condition. Looked they had been in a bar fight. Busted arms and what appeared to be blood on the upholstery. Don't even want to know the story behind that. Stripped them of everything, including the straw cushioning (whatever was on the upholstery had soaked through, YUCK!), down to the bare wood and then antiqued them with cream and white.
All it needs (well, besides the tub and upholstery for the chair) is a pillow from C'est Chouette for the bed!
