More Guest Room

I have gotten so many wonderful comments and e-mails from you lovely folks. It makes it worth all the work. I guess everyone loves a compliment. I know I do. Thanks.

I worked long and hard to make this room come together but I had so much fun. It was great to be able to fluff one room in the house. I am surprised that I didn’t add more pink. But, it’s not too late! Wouldn’t a few pillows made of vintage linen in pinks, blues, and whites be sweet? I also want to use my blue Wedgewood Jasperware collection in here.

I love my jelly cupboard. My brother built it and a brother-in-law made the pierced tin doors. I did a new decorative finish and added a small crystal knob with a vintage back plate behind it.

The three plaques (a diy project) are perfect for this small area.

Flowers are always lovely in silver teapots. Don’t you agree?

Tattered books are everywhere now. How many books like these have you thrown away?!!! Me too! These belonged to G-Man’s mother.

I still can’t believe how closely the drapery fabric matches the pair of pear chairs.

I probably have 25 more yards of this fabric!!!

I haven’t shown this piece since I posted about it’s make-over. And, I am only showing the top now because it’s still not finished!!!

I love the wooden horse and who doesn’t like dried hydrangea?

I am so pleased with the bed. Smaller pillows will eventually be added. I found a gorgeous European pillow in cream linen with a generic embroidered monogram that was scrumptious. I may cave and buy it instead of making one. We shall see.

The top of this has been changed more than my outfit on Easter morning.

The crystal lamp is repaired and back up there now. I can’t even remember where I got the little mirrored clock.

The “Waterford” crystal picture frame was discovered at a junk shop for $14.00!!! Crazy, huh??? Those kinds of finds just make your heart flip! Oh, that’s me and G-Man in Seattle leaving on an FBI dinner cruise.

A before and after post about specific things in the room should finish up the guest room make-over posts at our Blue Creek Home.

For more great inspiration check out "Show and Tell Friday" @ "My Romantic Home".

Now, some of you little chick-a dees need to come visit me.

  12. Rhonda ~ I couldn't find your email, so I'll just comment here. Absolutely, you can submit to a magazine. Probably via email too. I would get a magazine, like Romantic Home, look in the front for the contact information and email with a couple of your pics or a link to this blog post. They would be very foolish not to consider you, in my opinon.
