Our Guest Bedroom changes..................

Afternoon Sweet Friends,

Hope you are doing well and 
feeling well. Since there seems to
 be so many bugs going around 
these days.

I am doing well,  just feeling a little overly tired.
Am sure glad I pushed myself yesterday, and that it
 was a productive day,  cause today has certainly not
 been.  I got up at 6:30 or so then around 8:45 was
doing some reading and just kept falling asleep so
decided to kick back, about 9:15 or so,  and woke
up to my cell phone at 1:15,  it was hubby calling,
thank the Lord,  I had slept 4 hours like the living
dead I have to say, dreaming like crazy and I did
wake up momentarily a few times and went right
back to sleep. Am still trying to wake up and it
is 3:30,  so guess I must have needed it.....lol

We had a nice weekend,  watched our little
darling on Friday then Scott and Megan had
dinner with us,  Sat. we slept in a little,  and had 
a nice breakfast with sweet potato pancakes,
  and just talked and later in the day hubby did
some weed pulling and stuff while I worked 
on spray painting our shed door.  Ran out of
paint so only got one side done,  but that is
okay we are making progress...........
Sunday was our usual day when we don't 
get together with the family.  A nice long nap
and then watching some of our fav pastors
all evening.  It was a welcomed day as we
have just been rather busy lately.

Yesterday I worked on cleaning out our
guest bedroom,  it has sort of become our
catch all  storage room.  Dee and Jerry
will be staying with us a few nights before
they leave so have been needing to get
to it,  and we did do some of it on Sat.
but had some left to do on Monday, so
was singing the halleleujah chorus as
I finished it.  Nothing like incentive to get
you moving,  it has been bugging me a
while now,  so very happy to have it all
back to normal again.

It has been a long while since yall have
seen this room,  and I have made some
changes over that time,  not all at once,
but thought I would show yall since I
know how much we all like to see pics
of each others homes and decorating.

These are the before pics if you care
to see them.

and here comes the recent ones. Not a huge amount 
of changes, but think the pics are a lil better too.

We added the headboard and the metal 
branch wall hanging,  looks so much better
than the mirror.  Course, the mirror was 
leftover from when DeeAnna lived here
and her dresser used to sit under it until
I changed the room around.

I am going around the room reverse clockwise.

This was a Ty Pennington comforter set I found that
I really liked the flowers and the colors,  and thought
 since we live in Florida maybe we should do our 
 guest bedroom in a tropical motif.

The only thing that changed here was the
magazines and the tassel I put on the lamp
as an embellishment,  it is really a curtain
tie back.................

Curtains and blinds are still the same

This corner got a round table in place of a chair and
the basket with greenery hides the plug in switch
and the pic is of a beach cottage,  the sign in front
of the cottage says
Harbor View Inn................
Thought that would add a lil quaintness to the room.

One of these days I want to repaint this room. It just 
hasn't been a high priority,  but have always wanted to
 paint it robins egg blue and maybe beige or all blue.....
But by the time we get around to it,  that could
 all change.  lol  I think we burned ourselves out on
painting when we were younger..............lol
Not something we look forward to......now if I had some
one to prep the room,  I would do it in a heart beat, but
I really really dislike the prep work,  but I am great with
a roller and hubby is a great trimmer,  so we make a
good team, now we just need someone who is a 
great prepper..........lol

We brought the entertainment center to this room, from
our computer room..... it used to have a drop leaf table
 in this spot,  so we swapped  the drop leaf table to put
in our computer/work room about 4 months ago. 
 So since we had gotten rid of the TV,  because we 
never watched it in there, I decided to put the other 
beanpot lamp inside the entertainment center.

Here is part of the top of the entertainment center.

Here is an overall shot.....I decided at the
time we moved it in there to add some
coastal to the tropical look,  they seem
to blend nicely...............

I really like when the lamp is on at night,
inviting to come into the room with it like that.

You have seen this sign before in a few tablescapes,
but it's official residence is in the guest room on
top of the entertainment center,

a lil touch of whimsy - colored pencil affect

I even lit the candles for you!!  lol

 Here's a pic with the lamp off,  and added 
the same embellishment to this lamp. 

with the candle lit,  a yankee candle
called Beach Walk puts off a nice
beachy scent to go with the motif.

A close up of one of the shelves,  the other
were all blurry for some reason,  should 
have known to take more than one shot.

to the left of the entertainment center
is the doorway,  and this is a shot of
a small wall left of the door, with 
tropical mirrors that are almost a 
perfect match for the comforter
they were actually white frosted glass
but I just put some blue scrapbooking
paper behind them,  so now they
are the perfect shade of blue.

Then right passed the closet doors is
another lil night stand that is old as the
hills,  and have considered disposing of it,
 but I plan on it being my first victim when I 
find a place to get  my hands on some
 chalk paint.  Thought it would be
a great way to test it out.

So there you have it sweet folks............

Our guest bedroom all back to normal
and all ready for guests..........
Whoo Hoo!!

Dee and Jerry will be our 2nd guests
for the year, as we don't get a lot of
company............we will be tho.....
and they will be from Asheville!  lol

Glad you came by to visit,
and hope you come again soon.

Have a Wonderful Week,

Hugs and Tropical, Beachy
Blessings to you,

Your guest room update is very pretty. I love that bedspread too. It goes so well. Your guest room is so inviting and welcoming for your guests.

Cozy indeed! Maybe we will get to stay there some day! Actually, we were back for Millie and Ron's wedding on the 7th...a whirlwind trip as usual.

Please check out my blog at www.motherdaughtertango.blogspot.com and spread the word about my upcoming book! Thanks so much!

Beautiful! I know what you mean about painting. Just after mom died, I started painting: the living/dining room, foyer, hallway! It was a nice look, but I burned myself out on painting! When they came to put the new border on the floor, they got some white paint on the blue wall! I didn't notice until weeks later!

I just love your long legged sandpiper!
See you tonight! Love you, Susan
