Guest Bedroom Vintage Refresh
I may have mentioned a time or two about how I have a basement flea market. It’s real, it exists my friends. It has grown to the size it is because I went through a phase, spanning over many years mind you, where I was scared to pass good antique finds up. And I know you know what I mean. The “I don’t actually need this but I can’t not buy it, and I think I can find a spot for it eventually” conversation you have with yourself to justify your purchase. Guys, it happens! And you know what, I’m actually shrinking my stock pile because I am actually finding places to display all my goodies! There’s hope yet.
The goodies in this story are a great collection of vintage lead mirrors that I cannot even tell how much I love. It has pained me that they have just been sitting, collecting dust for so long. I finally found them a home! Our farmhouse guest bedroom was due for a little refresh and some changes, so I made some new nightstands, bought new linens, and finally created the mirror gallery wall I have been dying for. And the room really came together.
All the mirrors are secondhand, and so beautiful. The pictures really do them no justice. And I still have two beauties left over that didn’t really fit, so I have to find another room for them to go.
Let’s talk about the ticking quilt and pillow. ALL THE HEART EYES! I found them both at HomeGoods and couldn’t pass them up. Yes, another conversation in my head I had to justify, but I’m so glad I did because I am obsessed!
I just really love how the room balances out. It definitely isn’t as bright and light as when I had the farmhouse look, but I am trying to really stay true to my style more, and this my friends, is my style. A lot of people loved this room before, I did too, so I was nervous to mess with it. In designing, I have learned the lesson that it is YOUR home, so do exactly what you want. Don’t decorate for other people. And that’s what I did.
I hope you liked the changes! What is your favorite part?
Have a question….Tell me about the headboard. How did you do that? I have a door that is just laying in the laundry room and when I saw this picture, I thought, “Oh my goodness, I can use that door!”
I love the look of your guest room! It looks so warm and welcoming! I love every bit of it. The linens, what a lucky find and the mirrors are perfect! Keep decorating for you!
I am just wondering what you wall color is? Thank you!
Who is the maker of the quilt?
It’s a random find from Home Goods!
I luv this idea so much for a guest bedroom. ????????
Thank you so much!
Ashley. I love your style! You are very creative and have a great eye for design. Your vintage guest bedroom is charming!

You are adorable and you are such an inspiration!! I am so glad I discovered The Little Glass Jar!! Keep up the great work!! Blessings! Leslie Smith
Leslie, I hope you know your comment made my whole day! Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to visit my little blog, and I am so so happy you enjoy it! 🙂
I wouldn’t choose these colors for my bedroom, but I think it’s gorgeous! It all flows so well.
Thank you so much!
Beautiful I simply love it all, especially that bedding…wow…x
I love the bedding too, it was a lucky Home Goods find! Thanks so much!
I adore what you did with the space. I want to find that pillow + bedding now!
Home Goods girl! I’ll let you know if I see them at our local one again!
Love it Ashley and I am with you, you see it and love it, but it. Home Goods is a place you have to grab it and the pillow is a super score.
Stay true to your style. I fell into a trap and did what I thought I had too. Love French decor and I’m doing my French way.
Stop over and take a look around. I would love it.
Enjoy Memorial day weekend
Yes, it is so easy to follow the trends, but always important to keep your own personality in your style! Thanks for stopping in!
The pillow is my favorite!!! Love it!!!
Thanks! I love it too!
I love it, very relaxing!
So relaxing, great place for a nap too! Hah!
Love it….especially the bedding! Good job in ” your ” statement!
That means a lot! Thank you!
It is very pretty and different , I am trying to do my house in the Farm look with the cow pictures, cow bells, and different stuff that I find in estate sales and antique stores.
Awesome, you can’t go wrong with farmhouse style in my opinion! And I am OBSESSED with everything cows!
