The Bachman's Spring 2011 Ideas House- the Bedrooms...

Ready to see the bedrooms?  Today is the final segment from the Bachman's Spring 2011 Ideas House!  Lots of fun photos, so this post is a little long...remember to click on any photo to see it enlarged!  The girl's room is a vision in pink...perfect for a tiny dancer!  Decorated letters look charming on the wall...

What girl wouldn't want her own practice the chandeliers...

What a great chippy!

Isn't this a cute and inexpensive wall treatment?  Ribbon crisscrossed, with paper flowers held by decorative thumbtacks...

A stool, painted pink, makes a sweet side table...

and wall mounted buckets serve as cute storage for stuffed animals...

 Pretty pink silk flowers make lovely tiebacks!

Next is the cute boy's room!  My sweet daughter, Liana accompanied me on my second trip to the house!  I often go twice to see everything and take lots of photos!

The boy's room is for the global explorer!  The headboard  is made of an old wood sliding barn door with the name written in rope!

The valances are treasure maps clipped to whips... perfect for the little Indiana Jones...

The desk area is backed with a great vintage map, and the light fixtures are made with two globe halves...

Crates make great, rustic storage...

old hangers display paper treasures...

and an old barrel becomes a stool!

Thought I'd add a few shots from the upstairs bathroom...vintage candle clips are used on the shower curtain...

and hooks added to old shoe forms make great decorative towel holders!

Vintage containers make cute candles...

and an old stepladder serves as fun storage!

Aren't these plants pretty hung from the old towel rack?

The last room is the master bedroom...I LOVE the chandelier reading lights...

Vintage plant holders make charming side tables...

and an old washtub stand now serves as a luggage bench!

Such a lovely old dresser...

Old spools are used as beautiful necklace displays...

and an old fence piece is used to display scarves!

I loved the idea of using vintage lids, sugar etc, turned into photo displays!

A big silk flower makes a fun tieback here, too!

Wouldn't you love to have this antique dress?  OH SO pretty...

Well, that's it!  Hope you enjoyed the tour and found some inspiration, too! If you missed the two earlier posts from this house, just go back a few posts... also remember the four 2010 Ideas Houses have links on my sidebar.  The next Ideas House (Summer) is open May 26th- June 12th (closed Mondays).  You can visit their website for more info!

Until next time...

  29. I can't claim credit, Kim~ Bachman's is a garden, landscape, and home decor company in Minnesota~ this is their ideas house, they change it our 4 times a year!

  30. Linda,
    You must have some kind of pull by now, with all of these beautiful pictures. Don't you think we could have a slumber party there for a night? Just gather all the wonderful area women who blog and have it all to ourselves? See what you can do, OK?
    Seriously, it is outstanding. My favorite. And your daughter is lovely. Maybe we could just have the to of us and our daughters?????

  31. Linda, I got so many ideas from this post, so thank you!!! I have been stumped on what to do for my headboard, we got a new bed(king now) and I have been trying to think of something thin, but that I'd like. Thanks!!!
