Updates to a guest room

    This is one of our guest rooms.  We had a king size bed in here before, but decided to replace it with a queen.  I don’t have before pictures.  I wish I would have thought of taking them.  This is a headboard and bedding that we previously used in Avery’s bedroom before we changed her room decor.  It looks great up there.  So I needed side tables and started looking around.  I knew I didn’t want to spend a whole lot of money on this project so began my search.

    I found this cute chest at  Rooster’s Antique/flea market in Lafayette.  I needed to lighten it up so I used Heirloom Traditions Venetian paint.  It’s a beautiful white with light gray undertones.  I then waxed it with Dark Umber Wax to give it an antique look. If you want to try this look on a project, you can find Heirloom Traditions paints and finishes at my booth, Inspired to Restore in Chic & Shabby, Main Street, Franklin or order directly here and it will be shipped directly to you: Heirloom Traditions Paint Company.

    I had this other little table hanging around the house and it was about the same height so why not.  I applied the same treatment as I did to the chest above.

    Here they are beside the bed.  So now I need lamps.

    Luckily because I found new lamps for our master bedroom at a tremendous steal, (More on that later) I was able to take these from our room and use them.

    Next up I need to find some art, a bench to put at the foot of the bed and maybe a rug.  Stay tuned to see the progress.

    I love Venetian and Dark Umber wax.  One of my favorite combos.
