I was determined, but this vintage cane headboard finally made its way to the Shaver abode last week after I found it on eBay! (BTW, here’s other budget-saving cane furniture here.)
And even though it was a beaut, it absolutely reeked of stale, old cigarette smoke, and the worn places on the cane left a little to be desired.

So little tip to remove cigarette smell from furniture:
Simple Green is your best friend.
We spritzed it down three times and removed layers of brown yellow tar. Yum.
Little tip to restore worn furniture cane:
Old English Scratch Cover rocks my socks.
It works beautifully for scratches on wood furniture too, by the way.
Wipe it on and done.
So now the guest room actually looks like a real guest room!
We’re still waiting on a massive piece of art that will go on this blank wall and a rug will be arriving soon to cover up the old carpet until we can one day gather up the funds to refinish the hardwoods underneath.
But can we just talk about this Hunter Fan Co. white and brass ceiling fan?! Er meh gersh!
But for now, you can find all of the other sources we’ve used here:
- Wall color: Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee
- Trim color: Benjamin Moore Winter Gates
- Green Curtains
- Comforter set
- Nightstands / end tables
- Brass lamps
- Gray throw blanket
- Chunky knit pillows
- Lumbar pillow
- Ceiling fan
- And even though the headboard was a vintage find, this bed is similar (though not as cheap, unfortunately)
The Shaver Bed & Breakfast will be open for business soon! Just kidding. Please don’t come knock on our door. I love y’all. Don’t make it awkward. 😉
Inquiring minds want to know while we work out the finishing touches though:
What amenities do you look for in a guest room? A framed sign with the Wi-Fi password is already on the list of must-haves. Any others? Maybe that will be a helpful post idea in the future.
