Guest Room Progress

I've slowly been adding a few things to the guest room.

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.

good morning Debbie, it is a very pretty room so far. You are a good flower arranger.
I can see the bed in the mirror relection- no quilt on it yet?
