Well, its winter...so everybody needs a room that lifts your spirits and makes you happy. The room in our house that I think is cheerful and makes me smile is our guest bedroom. I had never had the opportunity to have a guest bedroom before we built this house so I was excited about getting to have one. See I have this wishy-washy thing going on with "my style". I love so many different things that it is hard for me to commit to just one particular style so guess what - I'm not gonna commit. I don't have to, do I?
So let's look around the "cottage-y" style bedroom. As with every other room in our house - it is a work in progress - like... needs curtains, the bedside table needs a drawer, I need to hide the cord, etc....etc..
My Happy Room...
The left bedside table is a piece made for me by my dear late friend, Mr. Curry. It was perfect for my quilts. A bench that I had at the old house and the print above - a gift from my sweet friend, Kim. Behind the cabinet is an old screen door just propped up against the wall. I'm gonna make a banner for it soon I think.
Treasured quilts from family.
On top of this piece is a red lamp from IKEA, a bunch of flowers tucked in a bucket and some pictures of all the boys - one is mine - the other three are my nephews.
I've told you all before that I love paint by number - especially when it has a barn in it! $7.00 - SCORE! A simple wooden chair I painted blue sits beneath it.
The bedding is just pieces from here and there - I don't really like "matchy-matchy" bedding - just layers. The comforter at the bottom is from K-Mart. Hanging above the bed is an old window with the metal letters reading "good night".
Since there is no closet in this room - I opted for this armoire. It functions just fine for overnighters.
And the piece at the end of the bed is a Swedish blanket chest - or at least that is what they told me at the antique store. I must confess... my knowledge of "antiques" is limited - so I pretty much believe whatever they tell me. Oh my, that could get me in big trouble one of these days.
Hopefully I'll find the perfect curtain fabric some day- still looking. Oh and yes, that rug at the foot of the bed was a clearance rug for $20.00 from IKEA.
And that's it - my happy room!
I want to say to those of you that comment - thank you. I have tried and tried to find the "reply" button - but I believe my template does not offer that option. Just know that I really do appreciate it - especially my faithfuls, like Nana Diana, Melanie, Stacey and Dori and so many more!
Have a happy and blessed week!
