Be Our Guest, Be Our Guest!

OK, so The Mr. is not thrilled but we have a guest room.  Too bad :)

In our basement we have a bedroom that had been planned as a work room.  Well, that is why The Mr. is not happy.  I made it into our guest room.

This gives our company a place to stay away from our crazy family and us away from them.  Right next door is a full bathroom so it's a nice little retreat.

Now, this room was not an easy task.  Well, what in this house was?

It was the bedroom of a teenager and destroyed.  Carpeting awful and full of stains.  Closet doors all scuffed up and not working.  Walls disgusting.

Off I went making it nice and perty. 

New carpet, check.  New paint, check.  Decor all from thrifting or stuff already owned, check.  And now it looks 110% better.

Here is how it looked.

This is how it looks today.

Oh and furniture was Bub's crib set.  We bought the convertible set and since we bought Bub a new set it worked out great for this room.  Just had to get a mattress.

When will you be staying?

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
    almost...HaHa!) Great job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and
    more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
