Part of our challenge was where to hang all Jonathan’s instruments—a guitar, a banjo, a mandolin, and his most recent acquisition—a ukulele banjo he fell in love with at the Folk Music Center in Claremont, California. We decided the back bedroom, although an unlikely place, actually worked the best.
The green paint looks fantastic against the white trim and we found a couple perfect spots for some of the artwork Jonathan had collected. I’ve had the Amish-style quilt for years—my mother had it pieced and then put together the rest herself. It’s wearing thin but I love how all the dark colors look in this room. I’ve got a couple other similar wall quilts but I simply can’t find a free wall for them.
The Love/Hate poster is from a silent auction fundraiser we attended. It was originally a set of two and we had been bidding on both but as the auction continued, we decided to concentrate on winning at least one. Just the other day, Jonathan tracked down the artist and found its pair. We’ll be rehanging them both over the bed.
Jonathan picked up this dresser at a second hand store and had always been intending to trade it in for something nicer. I polished it up, hung a matching mirror of mine above it, and it looks like it’s here to stay.
