Birdsong Cottage: Some random pieces for the guest room...

Hello there!

A while ago we bought a vintage fan originally intending to put it in the bathroom. But then we bought the hutch and there wasn't enough room at the top of it to accommodate the fan. So we decided to use it in the guest room instead.

Yesterday we went on our last mountain jaunt of the season looking for something to set the fan on. The gal that works at the antique furniture store that we go to knows that I use Annie Sloan paint and took me in the back room to show me a piece she was getting ready to work on. She had painted the top to sample some paint she had mixed. Needless to say, I loved the piece even in its very raw state and asked her if she would sell it as it was. She gave me a deal, and here it is...

I'm not yet sure how I will paint it, but I have all winter to think about it. Can't you just picture what it will look like with this little beauty on top...

...and maybe some plants on the steps?

And lastly, this little desk, which I showed you in an earlier post, will go next to the bed. I painted the legs the last time we were up here...

Have a wonderful day!



  1. The foot stool is such a unique piece to use for a fan...painted it is going to look incredibly chic!
