Once upon a time there was an antique blanket chest
that was at the foot of the iron bed in the guest room.
You can see it here when I revealed the guest room makeover.
That blanket chest was relocated to the sunroom to add more texture and warmth seen here.
Well, that left a void at the foot of the bed in the guest room.
So what is one to do? Well, you visit Mary Alice’s shop!
Just to give you a peek as to what it looked like
before the antique blanket chest was relocated:
The blanket chest now in the sunroom:
I love it here in the sunroom
adding warmth and a different element of texture
and successfully anchoring the room.
I am loving the chippy vintage bench in the guest room.
Now, do you notice anything under the bench?
No, it’s not the basket.
It is the wonderful iron scrolled brackets.
Beside the form of the bench, the brackets are what sold me.
This bench just added the perfect juxtaposition
of the French Country hutch across from the bench
and the somewhat formality of the chinoiserie fabric of the bedding.
And the contrast of the wood and iron.
Now there is bench for my guests to sit or place a piece of luggage on.
I am sure I will be doing some tweaking of the area below the bench.
I was just very anxious to share this bench today!
Do you love to add a bit of chippiness to your decor of
something that was certainly well loved?
Have a great day!
