Guest Room Reveal

Hi all, today I am back with the guest bedroom reveal. I added the finishing touches to the room on Tuesday, and the first guests arrived on Wednesday.

In a previous post there were a few things that I mentioned I wanted to accomplish in this space. One, I wanted to add a sitting area.

And two, I also needed to create a space for guests to unpack if they so desired. 
The initial plan was to find a chest of drawers but that didn't happen, so I did the closet shuffle. You know, take the stuff out of this closet and put it in another closet.

I managed to create a space in the closet. However, I forgot to open the door and take the picture so you could see it. lol!
  I added the burgundy and gold pillow and removed the bolster. You can see it here.  I think the burgundy brings in a touch of Christmas.
What can I say about the bedside table? It needed to be updated and fast.
So, I came up with a super cool idea for a table cloth. And I was lucky enough to find a woven basket that fit perfectly on top of the table. Can you believe the table cloth is actually a dress? Yep, you read that right. All I did was cut open the seam in the back of the dress, and then I draped it over the table. Pretty clever huh?
I think the table cloth makes quite a dramatic statement. Did I mention, I know DRAMA? 
The potpourri adds a splash of color, while the gold dish adds a touch of sparkle/shine.
Mirror, mirror on the wall......
Mirrors were added to the tea cart to level out the uneven surface. 
And the accessories were kept at a minimum, this way guest can keep all their personal belongings in one place.
The ice bucket is the perfect place to store mini water bottles. Pop them in the fridge several hours before bedtime and guests will have a cool drink right at their finger tips, without having to leave their room.
One of the main issues that I had with this space was it didn't have a sitting area. So I brought in a chair from another room, a few pillows and a throw. Problem solved! 

This is how the bed/room looked before the make-over. Blah, blah, blah!
So what do you think? I love how this room turned out and my guests loved the room too!
Are you expecting any guest/guests for the Holidays?
Have a GREAT day!

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…
