A Vintage Christmas Bedroom

We are going to venture upstairs now and visit one of the guest rooms. A couple months ago when I went to the Country Living Fair with my good blogging buddy, Shirley, I found a couple of vintage items and knew exactly how I was going to use them in my Christmas decorating.

 Shirley and I both brought home an enamel bucket. I tucked in this little tree and red burlap that I had and stuck my lifesaver rings on for ornaments.

 The quilted star pillow was another cute find from the fair and it goes so well in this room. I love how it looks with the very worn quilt I picked up last summer.

 These rings are curtain rings that I painted red stripes on last year and they can be used as napkin rings, too.

 For a fun touch I stuck one of the rings on this little dog.





 I love these ticking striped flannel sheets from LL Bean and have them in three colors now.



 I don't think I have shown y'all my canvas I had made from a picture I took on Martha's Vineyard back in October of a seagull in the fog. I love how it turned out.


I always have fun decorating this room.

  7. Kim, it does look like a fun room to decorate! Your guests must love staying in there. The painted curtain rings are brilliant...such a perfect touch. I may use that idea in my younger son's nautical themed room. Just adorable! I always enjoy seeing those red checked curtains too!

  15. I love this room, Kim. The added touches of Christmas are perfect for a guest room. I kept mine simple, since my son will be back for Christmas and he tends to have his stuff all over the place.

  27. I could use to be a guest somewhere right now, so much to do I'd rather escape. I could be there in a day, have a mint on my pillow.

  39. Kim, I love this room and LOVE LOVE LOVE the tree in the enamel bucket. By the way Kim, you'll never guess what I found at Goodwill today....a shiny white plastic cow head on a plastic plaque!! I had to search your blog to see how you transformed yours because the one I bought today needs a make-over too....LOL. Hope you are having a wonderful day, Gail

  40. Love it! I look forward to having a guest room again one day! They stay so nice looking! LOVE the patchwork fabric star on the bed too!

  41. I rarely have anyone in my guest room (although my dad will be here after Christmas). So, it tends to get the gifts for upcoming holidays, the ironing board, the suitcases waiting to be packed...and so on. After seeing yours...I want to throw everything away in there and start over. I am also going to immediately move my little brush tree to one of my white pitchers!

  44. Kim, this room is perfect! It could grace the cover of Country Living! It truly is a vintage room! You did a perfect job styling it with all of the little details right down to the red and white napkin ring on the dog. You did a fabulous job on the lamp. I'd like to try finishing and old clock like that but have no idea how to do it. This room is the pefect guest room. In fact, it's so nice you might have to kick the guests out because they might not want to leave!

  52. I am loving the coastal/americana style! How darling this room is... I would feel right at home here. The trunk nightstand, quilts, and of course, the little potted Christmas tree really make it perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Kim, I remember when you made the lifesaver napkin rings and I liked them then, but they are even better as ornaments on your tree! I am thinking about changing the color scheme of our guest room just so I can put those red ticking sheets on the bed! It's magazine worthy, I tell ya!
