Guest Room Progress
The mirror and chest of drawers are very old and belonged to my hubby's grandparents who once ran a hotel at a North Carolina lake resort area. They were used in the hotel more than 50 years ago.
I think the mirror which has acquired a "chippy antique" look fits well with the look I am trying to achieve in the room. The chest of drawers has been redone, but still has a water ring where a glass once sat. There are a couple of cracks in the plaster wall behind this arrangement. I couldn't have planned that if I tried!
The crock was a recent purchase at a junk shop. I filled it will silk sunflowers and eucalyptus found at Dollar Tree. There is the slightest scent of eucalyptus when you walk into the room.
