Hi everyone! I was able to work on my guestbedroom slash office slash husband's dressing room yesterday (I'm sure all of you in older smaller houses have rooms that have to function for more than one thing)!
I'm sure by now everyone knows that I love toile! So I chose a blue toile for this room. But it can't be too "precious" as my husband uses the closet in this room for his clothes and he dresses in here plus it is our guestroom and we have male and female guests.
So I didn't go over board with the toile! Here are some close-ups. All the pictures will enlarge if you click on them.
What would a bedroom be without a chamber pot? Just kidding...it is an antique chamber pot though! It makes me giggle when I look at it there - I may or may not tell guests what it is!
The brooches were gifts and I don't really wear jewelry other than earrings so one day I just decided to stick them on this lampshade. Then the other day I decided to wrap a string of pearls around the top. I really love the way it looks! Now I'm trying to think of something to do with the final!
Now this adorable crown is from my friend Rosemary Rose's Petite Maison. One of the joys of blogging has been seeing my blogger friends follow their dreams and just grow as people. I've watched Rosemary go from making things for her family to making gorgeous things that sell in shops! She really makes the most gorgeous crowns and banners and she has an Etsy shop!
The headboard is from a thriftstore, the painting on the top is a water color done by my friend Judy just for me and the "dream" work is vintage lace and fabric with fabric letters. The nightstand is from TJ Maxx and I think I got the lamp at Target.
You can see a bit of my Inspire Me board that I showed in the post below. The other side of the room is my desk and my bookcase.
I'm not finished yet! I found a little shelf at Goodwill that has a groove for plates so I think I'll put that up above my board and I need to find a bedside clock. You're never really done right!
I haven't gotten around to painting the bookcase yet because it's been so hot I can't open a window! I'm planning on painting my desk too - but it really needs to cool down before I do any of those painting projects! I have some organization projects coming up as well.
I hope you enjoyed seeing part of this room (the pretty part LOL)! Now I've got to go clean my house! Have a great week everyone!
