Guest Bedroom Update

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.

French Side Table Makeover


Today I'm sharing a quick and easy paint project that I worked on for my office upstairs. This french side table didn't start out so pretty. In fact, here's how it looked before. 



The painted flowers and brass hardware dated this side table, but the curvy legs and details were so beautiful. I painted it white and lightly distressed it for an updated new look.


I'll be sharing more images around this space soon.
