Redecorated Guest Room

I hope you'll enjoy seeing pictures of my redecorated guest room. This has been a fun project and I'm thrilled with the way it turned out.  My painter is a retired high school teacher and  does a fantastic job.  She's  slowly painting my natural woodwork white in each room and I can't believe how much difference it makes.  My wonderful friend helped me choose the paint color.  It is called Rosewater.

I made the valances from a single drapery panel I found at a thrift shop for $1.99.  It was in pristine condition and already lined.  I added the beaded trim.

I used every inch of the fabric covering the chair and making the pillow.

 My vintage hankies are displayed in an old spoon rack.

The wall cabinet is the top of an old secretary and was purchased at the flea market.  It's amazing how a little TLC and some white paint can bring something to life!

I made the white ceramic tree when I was in my 30's in a class taught by the same friend who picked out my paint.  Longtime friends are priceless!

This little dotted Swiss dress came from antique shop. I had to bring it home with me!

I found these felted corgi ornaments at Target this year and I think they are sold out across the country.   Corgi lovers are crazy!  I'll hang the wreath in my kitchen window in a few days.  It makes me smile.

My corgi girls are doing so well.  Bonnie has adjusted perfectly since she came to live with us  in the summer.   She is a super sweet girl and so well mannered.  Perl, well that's a different story.  She's wild and determined.  She will be a year old in December.  Miss Heidi is a quiet old lady who takes lots of naps and doesn't like to be bothered by the younger girls!  


  1. You've been busy. The room looks great with all the nice finishing touches.

  2. Very pretty guest room! Love the white ceramic tree and darling corgi wreath!
    Happy Thanksgiving.

  3. Everything looks so nice Sharon. I love the hankies...but I use mine! As an allergy sufferer I learned way back that old hankies don't harbor the loose fibers in Kleenex that can aggravate even more. So I'm always looking for nice old hankies at antique shops ;)

  4. Hi Sharon!
    So many lovely touches. Any guest would love to spend time there. I love seeing photos and updates of your girls, too. Perfect to spend your days with such sweet souls. (Even Miss Perl!) ;-)
    Hugs from Florida,
    Donna and Tag (Bella, too!)
