Toile and the guest room

Well when I put my mind to it I won't leave it alone until it gets done.
Well I have been busy working on my guest bedroom.
We saw the toile bedskirt and pillows now here's the wall behind the bed.
I love these plates. Don't they standout.
Now the wall as you enter the room had a shelf that said HELP!! So here's the before
(this is it at Christmas)and the after.
No more cries for help. A little paint
and dark brown glaze.
Again the before..
the after. What a transformation.
The other wall or closet wall hangs this cute mirror and pearl heart. Just a little love...
See what's in the mirror. Then I found this ladder in our garage that was my Dad's so I put it to good use.
I hung some quilts.
Now this room is not finished yet. It is a work in progress.
Until next time,

  1. I love the beautiful blue toile and the bedding is gorgeous.


  2. Such a serene and peaceful guestroom! Lovely!

  3. Your blue toile is so pretty. I've been thinking of black toile for my bedroom, but maybe I need to go blue.

  4. Toile is one of my favorite patterns, I love it. You sure made a lovely guest room using this bedding. The shelf is a knock out look too. Thanks for sharing your changes. I'm visiting over from MM.
    Hope you have a great week.

  6. Very lovely! I love toile, and I particularly think blue toile looks best against crisp white like you have done it.

  7. This room is so beautiful!! love the pearl heart! I have made several pearl hearts , however they are all open hearts!

  8. I am always a sucker for blue and white toile! Your guest room is coming right along. :)


  9. Hi Linda...

    My friend, your guest room is coming along beautifully! I don't think you can lose using toile...I love it! And...I love the pretty blue transferware plates with the toile bedding...sooo pretty! Such a beautiful transformation on the pretty shelf! Yes, I think the white looks much better with the direction that you are going with that room! Love it! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful guest bedroom redo with us...I'm sooo excited for you and can't wait to see it all finished! Best wishes and enjoy, my friend!
