Vintage Wash Stand

When we (well, mainly my hubby as I mostly supervised) 🙂 . . .

~ ~moved 12 pieces of furniture last week . . .

~ ~ ~ ~one of those pieces was the vintage wash stand that was in our bedroom.

The wash stand was also formerly in the guest room! . . . It is a “well traveled” piece.

So where did this poor wash stand that can’t seem to find a permanent home land?

In the Media Room!

I recently added three new pillows to the sofa to lighten up the area.

One side is monogrammed . . .

A cream colored throw that I purchased at a Paris Market was also added to the sofa.

With a dark brown sofa in the room . . I am slowly adding lighter accents . .

    The photos don’t do it justice Shirley. Your house is absolutely beautiful.

  23. Shirley, I love your washstand and love the lamp on it! So pretty! I know what you mean I am feeling a need to lighten up too. My daughter has been painting tables white and it’s rubbing off on me! I am warming up to the light side!

  24. Dominos is my favorite game…..both house wise and the true game!!! I think a media room is the perfect place for a wash stand!!! Looks lovely!~~Angela

  25. That looks like such a comfortable room to sit back and relax in. I like your choice of pillows on your sofa too. I used to have that same red urn from Southern Living at Home too!

  26. Jeanette Price says

    Looks like another great place in your house to relax. That couch looks so comfortable. Soft Surroundings has both beautiful thins to wear and for the home. One of my favorite catalogs to peruse! Everything looks lovely as always!

  27. I love the wash stand there, perfect spot. Love that lamp too. As you can see, I can’t get to my e-mail or blogs til late at night these days. BUSY:):) I am decorating with shells right now for Summer. I did the dining room today:) Now if I could just do a darn post that would be great….

  28. I had to giggle… when I say “we did something” I usually mean Bobby! I see you have the same lingo! I love that sweet wash stand! I think we have the same rug… mine is in my dining room! Beautiful room… you are quite the decorator!

  29. LOL- I was sitting here this afternoon and looking around and thinking about what I needed to do it here to change it up a bit. I need to get a new rug and I am going to have to look for a remnant and have it bound because it is a large, odd area. Then I need to move the rug here in the family room back to the dining room AND then move that rug out to the summerhouse patio. LOL Does it ever end?

    Love that old washstand, Shirley. I am glad you didn’t paint it. I think there are some wonderful pieces that you just shouldn’t paint..and that is one of them (in my own humble opinion).

    I LOVE your pillows, too! xo Diana
