Our Guest Room

Happy Fourth of July Weekend!

We are in the midst of a master bathroom remodel and are being held up by plumbing issues. Everything is torn out - shower, toilet, tub, vanity, carpet and tile floor - and we are waiting on a plumber. I've taken lots of (ugly) pictures and will share them with you as we get closer to the end.

In the meantime, our guest room is now filled with the overflow from our bathroom. I didn't get all the pictures I would have like to have gotten and now I can't.  But, this is how it looked the day of the photo shoot with Romantic Homes.

Most things in here are the same. I had been on the hunt for a night stand for the left of the bed. I've had this sewing machine table for a long time. I moved it from another room and painted it white. It's a perfect fit and a great height.
Because our house will most likely be published in a Spring issue, I added some faux Spring boughs to the night stand and left all the Spring florals.

I didn't get any pictures of the other side of the room but you can see that we added a chair from the living room because I don't have a good chair for in here right now. You can also glimpse the corner of my desk that's opposite the bed in the photo below. There's a built in shelf above the closet door that runs that length of the room that I've  filled with treasures. Kristen is looking at everything in this photo.
 This chandelier was a garage sale find that I painted with chalk paint and added crystals to.
 I whipped up another pillow to sit on this chair.
The prints on this side of the room are the same.
These lamps were black when I purchased them. I spray painted them an antique white and added crystals. 
They tie-in nicely with the chandelier.  These are the plates you can see sitting on corbels on either side of the window.
It was a lot of fun watching Kristen get into position for 'the shot.' 
The last time I showed you this room there was this sweet baby on the bed.  This sweet baby turned one last week!
Happy birthday, Lucas!
And our Rhynn turned four!
We are so blessed!  Here we are at the double birthday celebration on my daughter's deck. 
Happy Fourth of July from our family to yours!
Me, my husband, grandson Lucas, daughter Laura, grandson Levi, son Matt, granddaughter Rhynn, son Mark, my mom, SIL Ryan
love and blessings~

    1. Thank you, Mary! I really like those! Right now our focus is on our bathroom remodel so when life settles down, I'll look for bar stools. Thanks for the link! Hope you had a nice Fourth!

  4. Hi Lynda!
    The room is lovely! Love the lamps and gives me an idea as I have been trying to figure out/find some lamps in our guest room. Did you paint the chandelier, it looks great. Sorry I am a little behind on posts as we have been away for he last 2 weeks. Trying to do a little catch up today. Again the room is beautiful.

  5. Your guest room is lovely and so is your family! It looks like you are still smiling through the bathroom remodel :)

  6. Your guest room is beautiful and congrats on the photo shoot!....and what a most wonderful photo of your family!

  7. Beautiful guest room, Lynda! And beautiful family!

  8. Lynda,
    Such a tranquil hue in your Guest Room, dear friend!
    I love all the touches of soothing hues in your accessories, as well!
    Beautiful baby boy! Gorgeous Family Photo!
    Thank you for sharing!

  9. I love how the wall color complements the accent pillows. It gives a calming feel to the bedroom. I wish I could come across something that nice at a yard sale. I have been looking to replace the lighting in my kitchen with a chandelier. Maybe I’ll get as lucky as you next time.
