This is a buffet with wheels so you can roll it anywhere and with two drop down leaves on the side so you can have a huge serving area.
If you have been following along, it was used as a TV console in the family room when we first moved in here.
Sometimes I think we have to think creatively about a piece of furniture. Put it to use for different purposes and see what happens, you might like it. This will probably go on Craig's list down the road, but for now I need a chest in the bedroom, so it will stay there for a while. The quilt rack top serves as a great luggage rack too and of course the comforter is in easy reach if my guests are chilly. A mirror and lamp left over from the last house work great above the chest,
The accessories go with the "Outdoor" theme of the room and the huge painting that I have in here. It was another piece that didn't have a home. So the room of left-overs in slowly coming together.
The last update to this room is this window. These drapes were way too small for the window and not at all my style. These were left here by the previous owner. Time to make a change.
I replaced the drapes with 2" woven wood blinds. So much better and the room is so much brighter too. I bought a pair of drapes, however they had a flaw when I started to hang them, so I am still on the lookout for another pair. Yes I am still using one of my hubby's file cabinets that he doesn't need for now as a nightstand. It works, so part of the charm of my mis-fits.
So all in all - my Guest Bedroom with Left-Overs & Weird Stuff is company ready and it looks way better than my first apartment did. Right now I am busy with the pool build and the backyard, but I do need to put a plan together and create a room that I really like down the road. It would be nice to have a really pretty chic guest bedroom, kind of elegant. Oh well, it is clean, a good bed and will work just fine for now.
Do you have a put together room with Left-Overs and Weird Stuff?
