The Room.

I am super excited about finally working on getting my room all put together! I don't know what took me so long.. But here are some pictures of what I got so far. Well.. bits and pieces. It's hard because my room is so big and I don't have that much stuff. I also have a huge walk in closet so I don't have a dresser to take up space ... Oh bummer hahaha 
I'm going for a sort of old fashioned textile look. That's the only description I can think of.. There really isn't a perfect word 

(above) I filled some old square frames with some of my favorite, simple, crafty ingredients. 

(above) Bought some twine while shopping with Siah at the Northern Tool lol

(above) I have been on a search for old crates.. and I found this one at the Antique store in Elk River... It's perfect. Just what I was looking for! Side note- I'm looking for more crates. If anyone has any they want to get rid of or knows where to find them besides an Antique store where they are expensive let me know =) 

I also found an old window at the Antique store. I love it and am working on destroying some of my old frames to give them the same distressed look.

Vanessa, you are so creative. I love it. I still need Chris to get the old window down from the rafters in the garage. I have one crate for you now and trying to find something to replace the other one so you can have two. Love you, Hon!
