Bedroom Refresh... Making Room For Guests

It's going to be very busy during the Holidays around these parts. We will be hosting guests and I really want to make them feel extra special. So I figured, now would be as good a time as any to refresh the guest bedroom. The biggest problem I have with this room is storage. There is nowhere for guest to unpack because the closet is jammed packed with stuff. And I currently don't have a dresser/chest in the room.


 
Today I am only going to show you a glimpse of the refresh. Don't the pillows look scrumptious and inviting?  FYI, above pic was for instant gratification purposes, because the rest of the room is a hot mess!
 
 
This is what the bed looked liked before I started the room "refresh".
 
 
Since storage was a major concern I emptied the closet of all it's content. Hopefully this will free up some much needed space for guests. A chest of drawers would solve the storage dilemma. So I am keeping my fingers crossed in hopes of finding one.
 
 
Yes I must confess this is actually a room in my home. Any who back to the refresh. To make this  room guest ready, hanging curtains and creating a sitting area is a must.  
 

sorry several fuzzy pics in this post.
Can you believe all the stuff that was on the bed and the floor came out of the closet?

 
The tea cart will be used to house all the things that guests need like towels, bath cloths, and toiletries. I also plan on changing out the lamp shade, because the one pictured is way too small.


I have a few tricks up my sleeve concerning this little bedside table. An unusual table cloth is on the radar, but I'm not telling just yet. The books and the potpourri will be removed and replaced with a clock and a decorative piece.

 
Our first guests will be arriving the week of Thanksgiving, so that gives me roughly two weeks to complete this room. I am up for the challenge!
Are you having guests for the Holidays?
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.



My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!


Chat soon...

Stuck inside, My Master Bedroom Makeover

Hello everyone,

As I write this post, I am seated at my desk, looking out the window. The view is fantastic because I have the best apartment in the complex, in my opinion! Every day I get to look out at the picturesque panoramic views of the golf course. But, the best part is watching the sun dance on the rippling water in the pond and the ducks taking their daily stroll. 

Today, like most, the workers are busy readying the facility in anticipation of the course reopening. They are preparing for the once steady stream of golfers who frequented the trail, before social distancing. 

I love this quote by Benjamin Franklin 
"Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. 
I couldn't agree with him more. 

I said all of that to say, it's time to put it in high gear. Instead of being bored, aggravated, complacent, and down-right mad, I choose to make the most of an unpleasant situation.

Today's post is all about getting things done now, and the steps I am taking to make i…
