Guest Room Makeover Reveal

It seems like this room has certainly taken me a while to complete;

however, no room is ever complete, right?

You have seen so many sneak peeks, so no more sneak peeks today!

How To Create A Cozy Writing Corner

Several months ago, I ran across an estate sale on the way to breakfast with friends.

My hubby spotted it; however, we continued on as there were 3 cars following each other.

On the way back my hubby suggested we stop and take a look, as he always admired that house from afar.

I am glad he suggested we stop as I found some great things there.

One of them was a vintage drop leaf table that went to my booth. I did not sell it before I closed

the booth and I was really good with that!

I painted this maple drop leaf table with Annie Sloan Pure White.

I got a little ahead of myself and totally forgot to take a before picture until I was almost finished

and managed to take a photo of one of the legs of the table.

The original place in which I wanted to place this table did not work

so I tried this space and I loved it, thus how to create a cozy writing corner.

This room is about to get a bit of a makeover soon.

I am wanting to add more black accents to coordinate with the bed frame and the chandy.

You may have noticed a peek of the hutch that I am still working on in the guest room

in the first picture featured on this post.

This black vintage stool fits the bill for this room and a great display piece for accessories

like this ironstone tureen with a vintage quilted heart that my granddaughter loves.

French Enamelware Pitcher-Housepitality Designs

I placed this French Enamelware Pitcher that I bought in France on the desk.

This pitcher was originally in the guest bath.

A few decorative accessories to start off with; however, I know that it will probably change soon as I

want to add a basket of postcards and stationery to offer guests if they shall need them.

With the one of the leaves of the table up, it created a nice surface for writing or computer time.

The wicker chair was previously on the other side of the room tucked under a table used as a night stand.

I am happy with this new cozy writing space for my guests. An unintended place for this table that

actually turned out well.

Other than a basket of stationery, I think a container for a phone charging station would be great for

the desk. If you were a guest, would there be something that you would like to have on a writing desk?

If so, let me know!

Have a wonderful day!!
