Changes in the Guest Room and it’s Ready for Guests

When I danced to the Furniture Shuffle (again) to add a piece to the sunroom,

there was an empty area in the Guest Room that needed to be filled.

Oh my, I cannot let an empty space stay empty for long!

So I made some changes in the Guest Room and it’s ready for guests.

Just before I started fluffing the guest room,

there was a sea of Christmas pillows in the room.

Now that they are all put away, it was time to get the room back in order.

Do you remember the area in the dining room

in which I placed the nesting tables?

The narrow side table that was in the dining room found its way to the Guest Room.

On the table sits a brass pineapple lamp that came out of the attic,

a black and white transferware sugar bowl that lost its lid, and a Brighton votive.

Previously in that space, there was a tall narrow chest (aka a lingerie chest).

That chest is now in the sunroom.

As in most circumstances of moving furniture from room to room,

so does the need to freshen up the accessories. And that I did.

This small side table just may get a facelift to  blend more nicely into the room.

My house is filled with plants normally; however,

it is more so since I have to bring many in for the winter months.

Every room contains a plant or two, or three …..

A refreshment tray with a local treat is ready for guests.

The other side of the bed’s side table/desk got a bit of a refresh too.

I try to have an empty dish so that guests can place their jewelry, change, etc.

for easy access. I do not believe that any change has been left behind.

But if a certain person is reading this, I may find a penny or two in the dish

upon their departure! 🙂 I always seem to have comedians stay in that room!

Not a lot of change in this little sitting area.

I did move the blue and white garden stool from the great room

to the guest room before Christmas and the Jade plant seems to be happy there.

The mirror that was on the wall next to the hutch

was relocated and placed over the narrow accent table.

I plan on doing something to this table, that does not include paint.

It is a very old table and would not think of doing anything permanent to it.

However, I need to spruce it up!

This great chippy white vintage bench remains at the foot of the bed.

I have had this blue and white Chinoiserie duvet on the bed for quite some time.

I do love it and have not found anything since that I like

that would make me want to change out the bedding.

Another room refreshed after the Christmas decor in that room has been stored away.

I am still trying to start the process of re-decorating my sweetie’s room,

but activities outside the home keep me busy.

In the meantime, my sweetie has taken over the guest room when she is here.

I think she has hinted around to claim it as her own! 🙂

Have a most beautiful day!

I am so happy that the skies are back to Carolina Blue!
