my guest room + $81 + sonnet lxix.

October 09, 2010




Our guest room got a wee facelift with:
1940's bed & dresser
(shell motif and snagged for $75!),
dropleaf table ($5),
little white chair ($1),
and Louis chair (free from mom). 

White paint (Benjamin Moore, white dove)
unites everything.

  14. Stopping by from the UBP11. I love this room. So jealous! I wish I could do more white, but with two crazy littles I think I would just be asking for trouble. :) Hope you're having a great day. Glad I stopped by.

  25. Goodness grief what a stunner of a room. Somehow I find it appropriate that my landscape provides a subtle burst of color in an otherwise immaculate setting, because I would be a brute and a terror myself in a white room. I shudder to think what horrid dirt and stains I'd leave behind without trying to. Really lovely!
