Guest Room Makeover Sneakie Peekie

I cannot tell you how long is has been taking me to re-decorate this guest room.

I have been working on this a little at a time, in-between other projects and activities.

A few more tweaks, a little more painting, a few more things to purchase

and it will be done . . . however, you know that nothing is ever done.

I had the Pottery Barn Sienna Paisley on this bed previously.

The paisley design had soft hues of blue, green and white.

That particular bedding has been in the room for a few years now and it was time for a change.

Guest Room/Pottery Barn Darcy Toile Bedding-Housepitality Designs

As soon as I saw this Darcy Toile Bedding in the Pottery Barn Catalog, I knew this was the

the pattern and look I was going for in this room.

I so love the patterns of Toile and Chinoiserie.

In an earlier post I spoke of an item that my hubby spotted when we were at Pottery Barn last week.

Here it is . . . a black glass cabinet with a mirrored back that actually is made for hanging,

however, I thought that it would look great on this table (for now at least) and goes so well

with the black accents on the room and the iron bed.

I mentioned earlier that I was still working on a piece of furniture.

Here is a bit of a peek . . . still needs a bit more painting and new hardware.

Guest Room Lamp/Writing Desk-Housepitality Designs

I found the lamp I had in mind for the writing desk at HomeGoods. A Drexel Heritage at a great price.

Still tweaking the wall and table top decor, but I think it won’t be too long before this room

will be finished; however, as I said before, a room is never finished, it is always evolving,

like all things in life. It just keeps things interesting and fun.

I wish you a most glorious day!

  20. What a beautiful cabinet, Shirley! Your hubby has a good eye. : ) It goes so well with the theme of the new bedding and that pretty lamp I see, too. Can’t wait to see the rest. I need to get my master bedroom together for pictures. After we painted it we went right into our bathroom redo so I almost forgot about it!
