Red Room - Re-Done..!

We had been thinking of changing the cot in our red room for long time now.  The old cot held a lot of memories as it was the first piece of furniture I bought, when I had my first very own (rented!) bachelorette pad. But things changing over years, with grand-parents crazy babies coming into pictures, things changed! When grandparents are visiting, babies like to sleep with them & they occupy 3 fourth of the limited space. Grandparents hang on to the few inches in the edge of bed to save themselves from a nasty fall :). So we wanted a larger bed that could accommodate babies and the grandparents without risking couple of bones!

As usual, we did not want to buy a new cot, instead we wanted an antique, old cot on a limited budget (usual again!). Doing rounds of antique shops & hearing shocking prices, we went back again to Mr Ramachandran of Curiocity. A wonderful place, I plan to blog about them in coming weeks. Within 4 weeks he delivered this beauty in teak! the wood is more than 80 years old!

To accommodate the new bigger cot in the room, we had to do little tweaking in. move a few furniture around, This is how the room looks now after re-doing













What do you think do, let me know!

Have a great week ahead guys!

Manasa, The room looks so cozy. The cot is so neat. I loved the quilt/bedspread at the end of the bed.
