My Guest Room

Today I have some pics of the guest room I just finished putting together. I found a great head board at an antique shop and fell in love with it. It is very simple and inexpensive headboard. Most likely from the 40's but I'm not sure. I then found the small dresser and I knew I had the makings of a great room.

 The room is very simply furnished.  I liked that the room has a serene feel to it. I took the  direction for the color from the wall color. The room was already blue when I moved in. This guess room is a small room 12x13. Inside this small room is 4 doors along 2 walls. I also have 2 very large windows.
To many doors in one small room. One bath, 2 closets and a hall door.

 The doors are white. Not wanting to repaint I went with the blue and white.  I choose a blue and white floral curtain fabric and made some great curtains. However once I had the lace up,  the curtains seemed to busy. So I choose to leave them out. I think the lace gives the room a homey feeling.

  I added the dark wood furniture and touches of red. I love how it turned out. I hope you do too. I have had two guest stay over since I finished the room. Both say the room is  elegant and  very serene.

On the table tops I tried to use things that give the room a 1940's feel

I am still  working on this old chair. I have sanded it down and stained it red. The fabric I have thrown over the chair is the fabric I will be making the cushions out of. It is also the same fabric I made curtains in but have decided not to use. I have great hard wood floors. So that adds to the homey warm feel of the room.

The quilt I already had. It was a perfect match to the blue walls. I love the white sheets.
Happy Crafting in 2012
