And...A Cozy Guest Room Too!October 28th, 2008 in member junk
Here's Ellen's oh so cozy guest room. She had all the right "stuff" for us to play with to create a space where her guests will probably never want to leave!!! :) My friend Terri and I built the computer area (see my other post for details), hung mirrors, windows, shutters, etc. to cozy things up - all in a day!
She has been collecting things to use (and was pulling mirrors, etc. out of her hall closet that seemed like Mary Poppin's carpet bag - it just kept coming...) - so, we didn't lack for pieces and parts and inspiration! We had previously done a garden room in the sun porch which is adjacent to this room, so we wanted a little bit of the "garden" in this room too.
Ellen had placed a garden trellis by the bed, so we were able to hang one of her florals on it. She has this "to die for" piece of old metal architecture hanging over the bed - so it just needed a little "something" hung below to finish it off - isn't it an awesome piece??
We hung mirrors, frames, windows, etc. on the walls - and it all just seemed to fit together like a puzzle.
Just a few finishing touches - Terri is sewing curtains and a slipcover for the computer chair out of some vintage barkcloth - can't wait to see them... And, of course - the computer has to be set up too!
It was a fun day's work! AND, when the man of the house returned home that night - he was amazed at what three girls, a few power tools, and a bit of imagination could do! (We never had any doubts!!)
