I had a few other smaller projects to attend to in the room.
I covered some buttons for this pillow and,
picked up one more pillow at Home Goods.
Then I decided I could use this lampshade by just painting it.
That didn't work out the way I thought it would, so, on to plan B.
I bought this fabric and used it to cover the lampshade.
I actually glued the fabric to the shade in sections.
I bought a significant amount of the toile when I was not sure how it was going to be used. I decided to use it again for the cushion on the window seat.
I jumped ahead to this little number. My brother, Dan, dropped this off for me two weeks ago. It was left by a tenant and Dan knows it's something I won't turn away. At the time, I had no place for it. But, suddenly it hit me. This would make a perfect resting place for a suitcase in the guest room.
A slipcover would be all it needed.
I used a canvas in a dark green for the top and more of the toile for the bottom.
I am delighted to have it finished before my sister arrives for Easter. I am hoping to finish one more detail before she arrives.
I bought these two pillow forms at the Goodwill Outlet for $1.22.
I cut one in half so that I would have a pillow for each end of the window seat.
I used the same toile and paired it with a little burlap.
I used some of this trim for a little detailing. Heaven knows I have enough of it and I should use it somewhere.
I plan to add a row of buttons to the each end of the pillow and make one more just like it for the other end of the window seat. But my sister arrived just as I took this picture so that's it for now. I still have two small tables and two chairs lined up for this room. So expect to see more on the guest room in another post.
