In October, I started building guest rooms downstairs to accommodate some
of my out of state family that will be coming in for my daughters wedding in a few weeks.
This is what they started out like
And now....with some hard work....the payoff
This is the stairs. I had purchased this stained glass window from
Small Holdings Farm
Small Holdings Farm
and the whitewashed fence piece from White Flower Farmhouse
several years ago....not sure what I was going to do with them at the time.
I thought they were perfect together for filling up the tall space.
Now the foyer area....We had the old Deacons bench which fit perfectly in this spot.
There is a closet under the stairs that fits (almost) all my Christmas decor.
The metal scroll was purchased at Pier 1 at 50% off....what a find!
This is the area between the two rooms....the other side of the foyer. The corner shelf belonged to my Grandmother....it has traveled with me everywhere I have lived and been
many different colors. I thought the full length mirror would be a nice
convenience for my guests....$2.00 at a yard sale.
And here are the bedrooms. We decided on one room with 2 twin beds
and another with a queen size bed.
I think the room with the twin beds will come in very handy for
my granddaughters in years to come.
In trying to keep to a budget I picked up a few pieces at junk shops and yard sales and painted them. The chair was at the curb....so that was free. I love the luggage rack. The lamps were a $5 yard sale find....but the shades were more expensive than I anticipated.
I purchased most of the linens at Marshalls & TJ Max....
all very affordable for nice quality & 100% cotton
I also love hooks....of all kinds....so these are just two of the several I have incorporated
into the rooms and foyer
I'm all ready for my guests....It will be great having my family here for two whole weeks....
it happens so seldom, that everyone is here at the same time. I can't wait!
