Florida Guest Room 1 Transformation

We just moved another truck, trailer, van and SUV full of stuff from our MS home. I was pretty sure we would be able to bring everything and I did not even want to rent a trailer. But I was wrong. We still left 2 twin size beds, a formal dining set and a garage and attic full of stuff there.
But whatever we were able to bring is already overwhelming. The garage here is full of boxes wall to wall from floor to ceiling. I am still trying to fit everything I can in this house which is almost half the size of where we moved from. It is a real challenge and it is exhausting.
I am opening 1 box at a time and redoing 1 bedroom at a time. I  just finished one guest room. Below is how it turned out.
 Below was before I filled it with furniture, lol.
 It was basically just a queen size bed and 2 end tables
 Here, you can see all the paintings and pictures that I had to find walls to hang them. You will also see the 2 mirrors that still need to be hung.

This is a small room which I have to fill with furniture cause I have no where else to put them. We already sold a lot and given away a lot but we still have so much left.
 We had to move the armoire from our master bedroom to here because we brought the French antique armoire from MS and it is very tall and it would not fit here. Fortunately, we have high ceilings in our bedroom. I placed one of the TV's on top. I moved the trunk from the office/guest bedroom 2 to the front of the bed.
 Ok, mirrors are hung and all furniture placed.
 I added a painting of roses and a picture of European country scenes on this wall but I thought it wasn't balanced enough.
 The dresser is from the 1860's. It used to be in our guest room for the kids in Natchez.
 I added an antique Italian panel on top of the dresser and I like how it turned out. Do you? After all, I call this my Italian room.  I think it looks more balanced now.  I have 2 of them and I am glad I found a home for them. One of them went on top of the painting in the living room.

 The room is small but I was able to add a lot of furniture and accessories and I am still happy with it.

This plaque, an architectural salvage I found on the web, used to be above the entry to our office in Natchez.

I won the pair of oval mirrors from an estate auction in Natchez when we first moved there in 2007.

And there it is! I hope you like it. Thank you so much for stopping by. I appreciate and read all your comments. Thanks to the hostesses of the memes I am linking with below.
