The bed was an old brass bed partially painted white with a candlewicked bedspread. Under the bedspread was a plisse blanket cover, then a wool blanket over a top sheet: a vintage way to make a bed.
This room was well-equipped to handle ma toilette aside from the bathroom.
On the washstand was a large wash bowl and matching pitcher with a smaller pitcher, vase, and soap box.
On the bottom shelf is a large slop bucket for used water. There was no need for me to use this set but it made a lovely decorative addition to the room.
The clothing storage included 2 painted chests of drawers and a closet with another chest of drawers built into the back of it. There was also a small desk and chair and a rocking chair.
One big surprise in the room is in the bedside table: a chamber pot. No longer necessary but once a welcome part of any well-furnished bedroom.
I slept very well in this cheery room in a mountain lodge.
Do you keep anything unusual in your guest room?
