So last summer, well before we found our new house my husband and I found these awesome prints at a flea market we go to a lot. Here is just an online screen shot of the full series so you can get an idea of what they look like.
They are called “As I open Fire” by Roy Lictenstein. When we first saw them I could see my husband was pumped. I mean like he couldn’t talk. They were fully framed and matted and the price was $500. After a couple minutes we walked away, and then I said to my husband, really I feel like 500 for fully matted and framed pictures is a pretty good deal (I mean framing these days is so expensive). He thought they were 500 for 1 not for all 3. He quickly continued googling their value, and the cheapest they were anyone online (unframed) was $500 all the way up to several thousand depending on the printing so I figured we were getting a good deal since they were framed and all. So we went back (even negotiated down to 400) and brought them home, and ever since I have been decorating a room around them in my head.
I decided I wanted to incorporate a canopy bed into the room as well and I thought something with fabulous navy and white print fabric would be an amazing mix with the prints.
Now for a fully draped canopy bed you need a LOT of fabric so I was pumped when I found this fabric on clearance for $7 a yard. I needed 22 yards so I pounced on it, I mean even $20 a yard adds up when you need more than 20 yards!
I haven’t decided on anything for the nightstands yet, but I don’t have much room so I need something small. I am going to wait until the bed is all set up with a mattress to see the height before I decide, but I was thinking some sort of garden stool would be cool.
