This is a post that I did last November. I am sharing it with Nancy at Joyful Cottage for her Every Room in the House Party.
I have always loved company. Something that I inherited from my sweet mother. Her motto was: The more the merrier!
I feel blessed that hosting a party or having friends and family coming doesn’t cause me stress. Just always look forward to ‘letting the good times roll’!
Just sayin, “Be My Guest”! I a-DOOR you!
Today I am sharing our basement guest bedroom. This is where our daughter, Kylee and her husband, Dustin will be sleeping for a few months.
The colors in this room were all centered around this rag rug. One that I have had for a long time. It was being stored in my sons garage. Thought it would work great in this guest bedroom. I picked up the vintage plates at thrift stores and yard sales. I already had the pictures and they were the perfect colors.
The headboard is an old door. It was already painted this color. Matched the rug perfectly! I made pillow shams out of old Battenberg lace curtains.
The pillow in front was given to me by my cousin, Betty. It was an old quilt block of her Aunts. I added the cameo in the middle. I also draped the curtain valance across the top of the bed. I made the pink pillow from an old chenille pillow sham and added the wool flower.
I purchased this King size duvet on sale at Thanksgiving Point for $89. I love toile and ticking. It was a win win for me!
Even though the bed is Queen I bought King size so it could puddle on the floor.
I picked up the pink lace at an estate sale for $2. The quilt draped across the bottom is one that I made.
The night table came out of my hubbies mothers childhood home. I added a few of my vintage treasures.
I showed the Armoire Redo in another post.
Kylee found this great suitcase at a thrift shop in Hungary. I placed it in the room of a reminder of their wonderful travel adventures.
This botanical print is one that I bought them when they were married. I knew she wouldn’t mind if I ‘borrowed’ it to hang in this room.
The curtains are gorgeous lace that my friend, Amanda found at a thrift shop.
I filled the blue jars with dried hydrangeas and made a wreath to hang on the wall. The photo is of three of my granddaughters when they were younger.
I made the paper wreath for Valentines a few years ago. The colors worked right into this room.
Here’s a view looking in from the outside. I bought an old chandelier and painted it cream. Haven’ hung it yet.
I knew that some of the things in this room would be a little too ‘girly’ for Kylee’s taste. She has her own wonderful unique style. I told her she was welcome to switch things out with some of her own while they were staying here. It will be fun to see the change.
Do you like having guests?
I will be sharing with these fun parties:
