I recently bought this antique chest at an auction for our guest bedroom upstairs. I thought it was the perfect size for storage and for holding a small TV for future guests.
If you happened to miss the post about this rooms progress you can read more about it here.
I moved the chest across from the bed on an empty wall and relocated the distressed trunk for more walking room.
I initially placed a mirror above the chest, but wasn't crazy about it, then I remembered I had some of my great grandmothers antique plates stashed away. They seemed perfect for displaying along with several other pieces of white china I had in my collection.
I love the crazing on the middle plate along with its imperfections and years of stains.
I picked a few of the first blooms from our hydrangea bush we planted last year for a simple arrangement.
Now I'm excited to search for more white plates to add to my collection!
Thanks for stopping by today.
