Well, the guest room was used this weekend!!!! :) My sister, Lindsey, and her friend Sam were on their way back from working at a camp this summer. They stopped here and stayed for a few days before continuing their trip to Florida. Unfortunately, I have no pics to prove they were here :(. But, before they arrived, I did two more things to the guest room.
1. John helped me hang the curtain, with my $2.50 curtain rod from Pottery Barn Outlet :).
2. John helped me hang this window I found at an old antique store. I think it goes so well behind the bed! I love it!!!!
I am excited for how this room has come together! I am all done refinishing the furniture! Still need to hang up my curtains...and get some stuff on the walls!
Someone gave us 4 white wicker tables. I ended up using two outside, then I painted the other two for side tables.
This is what the dresser looked like before...
I have to say I stole this idea from my sis-in-law. I had the hardest time finding hardware that was 2 1/2". Almost everything at H.D. or Lowes is 3". So I saw she did this on a piece she refinished, and I tried it and loved it!! All it is Jute tied in a knot. Plus it saved be at least $40!
I found this basket for $5 at an antique store in Lynchburg, TN :). The dried flowers are all flowers John has given me.
I found ths lamp for $20!! At Marshalls! So excited!
This is what it will look like with the curtain...
So much has been going on here lately! I have been working super hard around the house trying to get things done! Finally finished this chair I picked up for $10 thrifting with Seth....I re-upholstered with burlap, and re-painted, and it now matches our desk perfectly!
I also added some burlap behind the desk, so now all of those lovely computer cords are hidden!
We have gotten new blinds for our house- we found them for a steal on sale at JCPENNY! Who knew they had faux wood blinds? And for $17.99 each!! yea!! They make such a difference!
This trunk John found at a yardsale for $25 bucks! It used to have a floral chalk design (I forgot to take a before pic) but I went at it with soap and water and it came off! yea!! This lamp was also a find I found thrifting with Seth- again, no before pic, but I painted it white and found this wicker shade at Old Time Pottery!
We were so so excited to get our Dining Room Table! I found this last year while I was at USC in Columbia at a place called South Eastern Salvage. They have the same store in Chatanooga, so last week Seth and I drove up there and got it!! We still need to go back and get 4 more chairs- we got all the ones they had. Love it!!
This pic is for Nat- Adam and Nat got us this light fixture for our wedding and it is perfect in our master bath! yea!!
Thats all for now folks! Working on a few more things here that I will be posting soon!
