Be our Guest!

Come stay with us!  We already have 2 weekends booked in February!
This is the main guest room.  I call it the "beach room."  Drew's "man room" is the other guest room.

The walls are "Seascape" by Sherwin Williams.  When my parents re-did my room at home when I was in college, the white wicker furniture from 6th grade was saved for me.  This is what I used in my apartment and instead of buying a new bed room suite, I used this!  I know it isn't the most trendy right now, but I think I made it work!  The tan duvet with the white stripe was Drew's old duvet.  He never used the shams, so they are as good as new!  Drew's mom monogrammed them.  I bought the white duvet for around $30 at (I'm telling you, it is a great website).  The little pillow is the same fabric as the window treatment.  I ordered it from my old job, it is a Robert Allen Home damask.  Already had the white Euro pillows and bedskirt.  The iron piece is from Hobby Lobby.  I have considered painting it white.  I can't decide, thoughts?  The lamp is from Home Goods and I put some sea shells in the base of it.

The mirror was an old, brassy, gold that my parents used long, long ago.  I painted it with some primer to make it look shabby chic.  There's a rocking chair, the desk faces the window.  The room gets a lot of light so the room is really cheery considering the wall color and all the white!

I have a white tray from Target on top of the dresser with one of my monogrammed candles and a couple of vases.  Drew had three mirrors that were never used.  I hung two of them and realized, I needed something else!  There was a shelf that used to be hung in the kitchen, so I added that a few other knick knacks.

Entrance to the guest bath room.
The little piece of wall art is a little sea shell window display from Old Time Pottery, another one of my fav stores.

Drew used this shower curtain in our bathroom, before me.  It goes perfectly with the duvet, so I just had a stripped pattern strip added to the top.  It was the coordinate with the Robert Allen damask fabric used in the guest room.  I had left overs from both, so I wrapped two small canvases, as you can see above the toilet.

THIS is this basket, tin, thingy I found at a garage sale for $0.50.  Recently I saw three of them in an antique store for $36 a piece!  I couldn't believe it.  I had some tall sticks in a vase at my apartment, so i trimmed them down and placed them here.  It is almost like you are outside when you are in the bathroom, because the vent is right above this and they blow in the wind!

One day, I will post about the other guest room "The Man Room."  It needs a little organizing and cleaning before I can take pictures!  Have a great Wednesday!
