Whew! It has been a whirlwind here at Shabby French Cottage over the past few weeks! Check out the changes I made in my very chic guest room! I've revamped, rearranged, and repurposed to create a beautiful place for guests to relax, or for me to curl up with a favorite magazine. On top of everything else, I've started a new full-time job. Needless to say tying up loose ends and saying goodbyes at my old job was a challenge, physically and emotionally, but also starting fresh and learning the ropes with my new job has been quite the feat, as well.Please enjoy these photos of my guest room! I will try and concentrate on specific areas in several posts this week, as there are TONS of photographic eye candy in this pink, green, and white space!
I moved my beloved pink chaise in here when I got my new sofa from Ikea a few months back.
I popped a rather regal and ooooh so very French pillow with a bee, crown, and laurel wreath on it.
As well as this antique silk piano scarf. The rug is a clearance find from Kirklands I got while still in college.
The chandelier was $15.00 at a yardsale around the corner from my house. The lampshades came from Garden Ridge a about 5 years ago. I want to say it was about $14.00 for six of them.
I love the play of the soft pinks, creams, whites, and greens in the room. The Martha Stewart Ballet Slipper Pink corner cupboard started life as an ugly dark-stained pine piece. It is a new piece constructed of salvaged barn wood, but the finish looked cheap, so it got a heavy coat or two of paint to freshen it up.
The zinc French flower bucket is a vintage find. I picked it up for $1.00 several years ago. Did I mention I bought about 30 of them in assorted sizes that day??? I use them all around the house. . .
Of course the flowers are faux. . .I need to plant some peonies so they don't have to be.
The bed crown is fashioned of packing paper flowers and yards and yards of vintage lace.
The French bench at the foot of the bed is begging for white paint and linen upholstery. One of these days. Anyone up for trading services???
The bed is a cherished antique I picked up at a shop a few years ago. I love the original chippy white painted finish!
