We Have A Bed…I Think

When I am in need of a flea market fix I go immediately to The Barn here in Castle Rock.

It is literally an old barn.

Each old stall is a shop.

Beautiful shops.  

Shops full of vintage treasures and many new things too.

These women are gifted in their styling abilities.

I love going in there…it is my Cheers….everyone knows my name:-)

The best part is that I can tell the girls what I am looking for and if they don't have it they will be on the look out.

We have not had a bed since…well…..forever.  

We have the frame, mattress etc but not a bed.

I have been looking for MONTHS for a grey old door and this week I found one!!!!

One of the girls at The Barn had a perfect grey one just for me.

Kelly brought it home and Viola…….a bed (at least I am telling myself that it is one).


I love it and it looks perfect against the Ralph Lauren Crab Apple walls and my linen bedding (Carolyn Westbrook).  


The best part is that my "bed" cost us $45:-)





What is your last amazing vintage find??


Side note….my room is not always this picked up.  I would like to brag that it has been clean for two weeks now but the weeks before that we were stepping over things and there were piles everywhere.

When a new line comes out the house goes downhill fast…but for now…right now…this room is clean:-)

I will be showing you the other side of the room soon.  That is where I read next to the fireplace:-) My favorite spot!!

    My latest vintage treasures were not found in a market, instead they were already in my own home. I have a lot of old things that are very special to me (hope chest, jewelry box, large mirrors, etc). I have found myself taking extra special care of them lately and displaying them intentionally in our home.

    Very lovely!!

  17. Castle Rock WI? That’s only about an hour from me I think, beautiful place!

  18. The door is perfect! Love it. Our headboard is a door too…Mr. Davey Long Legs can’t have a footboard as his size 14s will get stuck….so we just go with the top!
    Love the calm colors in your bedroom…the perfect place to flop down at the end of a busy day.

  19. Love the bed and love your bedroom! It looks perfect

  24. looooveeeely! so pretty, Jeanne. I want to curl up in your bed with a good book… looks so cozy.

  25. What a perfect addition to your room!
    I love the idea of those barn stalls being little shops. I would love to see that!!

  26. I love your new “bed”. I did the same thing but used a new door.

  27. oh! i am so excited…i’m sure i’ve been to your blog before, but today i clicked over from flea market style and read this post. a year ago, i moved just north of cr (louviers?!?) and only found the barn this summer. we inherited our family home from my grandparents via my father. {all of whom were “collectors”…ok hoarders} i have been cleaning and organizing and gathering my inherited things and figuring out the best way to sell them. i love your ideas about photographing vintage finds. i’m also super excited to find a local blogger. especially one who loves the barn. have a great day! meghan

  28. So cute! I bought a chippy old beige/brown door from Roxanne that has about 6 panels on it to use as a headboard. It has been in my garage awaiting a good sanding for about 3 months now LOL Perhaps I can get my hubby to get it ready for me for our anniversary (in Dec.) How did you attach yours to the wall? Thanks for sharing!!

  29. Destiny,
    Our pillows are so large and high that Kelly just screwed the door into the wall. We are really fancy around here:-)
    To: jeanneoli@hotmail.com

  30. How did you hang it? Do you just drill it right into the wall? I am always so curious if people don’t mind drilling into their walls and then wonder why it makes me all panicky?? It looks beautiful!

  31. Oh, I love it! Will you come decorate my home for me?! 🙂

  32. I also like the bedding looks like carolyn westbook type.
    Glad to hear your bedroom is not always that tidy becuse mine is only when company is coming over LOL

  33. How soothing and pretty your room is! Love the birdcage. I’ll have to visit the Barn the next time I’m down that way.

  34. Your room is beautiful! And what a great find. Sadly, I am in need of a find. I can’t remember my last one.

  35. girl, that is sooo gorgeous! great find! and great idea!

  36. beautiful Jeanne!!! i can’t wait to see your fireplace sitting area! how so very awesome you have that space….
    my fav. in your bedroom are for sure your bed sheets/duvet cover….those are fantastic!

  37. Very cool. I love your bedding too 🙂

  38. I soooooo sooo love that you did that…I found a vintage pink old door that we are going to use for Madison {my daughter} for her headboard because she doesn’t have a bed other than a mattress and frame…and I’m so excited about it too…I tried tried to ask the hubs to put it up early because I can’t wait to do things like that once I have them in hand…but I’m waiting and being good:) It looks beautiful

  39. I just fell in LOVE with your room and want to copy it! 🙂
    You made that duvet didn’t you? You must have. It’s got YOU all over it. It’s too good to be true!
    My master bedroom still needs help.
    Amazing how a home just takes time and with that time keeps unfolding, isn’t it?!
    You are awesome 🙂 Just thought you should know!

  40. Beautiful headboard! My last amazing vintage find was an extremely old, tattered chalkboard. It was a whopping $1 at a garage sale! See how I transformed it on my blog…check it out at …http://curlyqmosaics.blogspot.com/2010/10/vintage-chalkboard-calendar.html

  41. I live 15 minutes from Castle Rock – I have got to check out The Barn!!

  42. Jeanne you are my first commentor on my blog. I thank you very much. I jumped for joy that I had received a comment so I wanted to tell you thanks but didn’t know how to go about saying Thanks. I follow your blog all the time!

  43. Your new bed and room are simply beautiful! 🙂

  44. I love your room! It’s beautiful!!!

    Love your bed….can I ask a question? Where did you purchase your duvet? It is exactly what I am looking for and haven’t been able to find it.
    Lori Oles
    P.S. I just went on your shop and I want to purchase one of your brown ruffle bags and I didn’t see any. Do you still make them?
