What's On Your Wall Wednesday-Master bedroom

Bonjour! It's Wednesday & that means it is another episode of "What's on Your Wall Wednesday" hosted by the fabulous Barb at Grits and Glamour. Be sure to stop on over to her blog to see what's on her wall and to find the list of all the other participants. It's quite fun & addicting. You know you want to peek!!

Last week I showed you the walls in my office at work. This week, I am letting you into my master bedroom. Luckily we are only showing the stuff on our walls, as that is the only part of my room that is presentable at the moment. But I did make my bed, even though you can't see it. That counts for something right?

Six years ago we were lucky enough to travel to Europe on vacation. It was amazing & I highly recommend that everyone visit Europe at least once in your life. I especially loved Paris, so when we moved into our house I decided to decorate our room "Frenchy" and in black & white. And of course we must have some toile.

You can click on any photo to enlarge it.

Here we have the 3 plates hanging above my husbands dresser. I love these plates.

I bought this plate off of ebay. I forgot to look to see who the maker is before I left home.
Another ebay find. I've had this plate for about 6 years. I love it!!!
This plate came from Marshall's or TJ Maxx (aren't they the same thing?)
My husband made the leaded glass window. In fact, he made 2 of them. I've shown them before in a Metamorphosis Monday post, click here to see better photos. I love the fleur de lis design in the middle.
I bought this hanger at Ross about 6 years ago. I still love it!
This wall is the little area between the door to our room & the walk through to the bathroom. Can't remember where I got the Bon Jour sign. The mirror came from Mervyn's about 5-6 years ago. It is made to look like a ghost mirror with cloudy areas. The shelf came from TJ Maxx years ago. The bird house on the left is actually a Christmas ornament. I put a candle inside. The bear is one of many in my bear collections. I've posted about my other bears here. He has a pink Eiffel Tower sitting between his legs. The pink candle holder came from K Mart years ago & the cherub planter was a thrift store find. I should have taken a better photo of the fairy/cherub print below the shelf but I forgot. I got it off ebay.
These 3 prints I got when we were in Paris. I don't really like the frame they are in, but it works. I should paint it black. I'll put it on my to do list.
This tin sign I bought off a website katiesrosecottage.com a couple of years ago. She mostly sells Shabby Chic & Frenchy stuff. I love her stuff. You should check her website out sometime, she has cute stuff & very reasonably priced.
I love this Eiffel Tower print. It came from Kirkland's last year. I bought it on clearance. I just hope it doesn't fall on our heads if we have an earthquake. But the bed is pulled away from the wall, so I'm hoping if we do have an earthquake, it will just fall off behind the bed. Cross your fingers!!!
This set up is over a small child's dresser that is by my side of the bed.
This is my favorite thing on my wall (at least for now). My brother in law found the old frame at the dump & knew I was looking for one. And then one day I was walking through the mall & I saw this black & white poster of vintage Paris. I fell in love with it immediately & knew I wanted to hang it behind the window. I wanted it to feel like I was walking up each morning looking at Paris. Can you think of anything better?
I got this little plaque at TJ Maxx years ago. I loved it as it reminded me of our trip to Venice & to Italy.
These 3 plates hang above the french doors leading out to our backyard. I purchased them off ebay a few years back.
So there you have the walls of my bedroom. I showed you everything except for 1 small wall that holds a shelf with my girlie things. I didn't take a photo as everything needed to be dusted & I was just too lazy to do it. Sorry! I'll save it for another post.

Hope you enjoyed taking a peek into my master bedroom walls. Leave me a comment to let me know you stopped by & I'll return the favor.

Au Revoir et salut until next week!!!

You really have some beautiful things here. Your plates are wonderful, and I love the leaded glass window that your hubby made. But my favorite is also the old frame with the vintage french scence - great idea, and it's perfect here. Kathy

I LOVE all your French items....there are so many great things that I can't even make up my mind what I like best, but I am crazy about all things French, and I have a B&W toile guest room. C'est magnifique! Linda

Oooooh La la...tres chic. I love all of your plates and plaques. Your bed and bedding are gorgeous and really liked the window with the poster behind it. Great post.

Your Paris room is very inviting. I agree Europe is a must. I loved France the best and also have a b/w room but not as many frenchy things as you. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for stopping by to see my girl and her bunnies.
Happy Wed, Candy

Hi Kim...

Oh boy, I'm always a day late and a dollar short, my friend! I just went through your "Whats on Your Wall Wednesday" post...ohhh my goodness, you have some fabulous "frenchy" pieces and I loved every last one of them!!! Hehe!!!

You know, I was looking at the one plate you have from TJ Maxx...and it looks almost identical to my new ebay bargain plates...yours has birds on it (which I really like)! Anyway, love all of your plates but especially love the one with the eiffel tower on it!

Okay...let's talk about your bed! Girl, I just love the look and what you did with your headboard and the wall behind it! That picture of the different stages of construction of the Eiffel is fabulous and I love, love, love how you did the shear curtains behind your bed...it looks so romantic!!! Soooo beautiful!!!

Well my friend, I hope that you're having a super Saturday!
