A bedroom and a bathroom

This is one of the boarder's rooms. I got the shelf, tables, and bench from a round robin swap box. I made the bed from scratch to match. I peeled a few stickers off the bench to make the bed match and then antiqued everything. The bench cushion matches the bedspread.
This room turned out really well. The medicine cabinet, wall shelf and rug came with the house. The toilet is one of those bright orange ones I got free at a garage sale. I painted it with enamel paint that you bake to set. The sink cabinet is the bottom of a wood stove and the sink is a contact lense package. The bathtub was cut from a Spam can.

I have to accessorize both rooms but I got a good start on the main pieces today.

Who would've thought to use a Spam can as a bathtub? Ingenious! I love it. You've been very busy!

Spam cans also make great wood cook stoves for a Victorian era kitchen. Just add doors, washer burners and a stovepipe and paint the whole thing black. That idea came from a book written by Venus Dodge.

Beautiful work! Things are looking great. Love the matching bedroom furniture.

that is so very clever, I never would have thought to use a spam can for a bathtub or a stove!
