Changes In The Guest Bedroom

It seems like things just keep changing all the time around here, especially the Guest Bedroom.  It began as the home of mis-fits.  Anything that hadn't found a home somewhere else wound up in here.  Then with some thrift store shopping,  I did a complete makeover and gave this room a headboard, dresser and some drapes.  I now have a presentable guest room, but it just keeps getting better.

I've had several of you ask me where my pretty $15 Frenchy chair went.  Well, like most things without a home, it made it to the guest bedroom.  I did have a fabulous small dresser in front of the window,but it found another home and this chair, garden stool and floor lamp were all looking for a home, so Guest Room it was.


 I love having a nice chair in here, I think my guests will enjoy it and a good reading lamp too.


Another change - I swapped out this painting from the entry with the little girl painting I did have hanging here.  I like both of them in their new places better.


I always have to take a look at the pillow cover aisle in Hobby Lobby every time I am there and this pillow just looked like it would be perfect for this room.  Their pillow covers are so inexpensive and don't forget to use a 40% off coupon that they always have.


I still love this dresser I found at my favorite 2nd hand store.  It looks so elegant in the room and my madeover mirror goes perfectly with it.  If you do some serious thrift shopping you can create a really pretty room for pennies.


 You could see a peak in the above picture of this mess.  Well, it's not a real mess, I am doing some early Christmas shopping and it is being stashed here for the time being.  Maybe I should just go ahead and wrap them and then it wouldn't look so messy.


This room just keeps evolving and still seems to house all the "extras", but I like it.

How about you, do you have a room that houses all the "extra" stuff you own?

My Entrance Makeover

As you know if you are following along, I have added and subtracted all kinds of furniture from my living room, and now it was time to subtract a few things from the Entrance Wall too.  It's a long wall that leads you from the front door all the way to the back of the house where you see the family room/kitchen/breakfast area.  This wall needs to have some furniture, but it doesn't need to be weighed down with too much stuff.


Looking from upstairs down, you can see the layout.


Just like the living room area I am discovering that less is more in a small space and removing some things for a more streamlined look is what I am liking.  This is what it looked like when we first moved in.


Now I think it looks better with "less".  I removed the ladder back chairs and moved the bench between the entry console and the china cabinet.


I also swapped out the artwork above the console.  The painting that I originally had here went to the Guest Bedroom.

I added just a touch of fall with some Target $1 pumpkins and Hobby Lobby Antlers.




Now it feels much more open and inviting to me.

Sometimes you just need to take stuff away instead of adding.
