I’ve been working on the guest room again. There was a possibility that we were going to have guests in early November, which didn’t happen but any excuse will do. I bought new bedding actually a couple of months ago. I am so fickle when it comes to textiles! It seems like I love a pattern for about a day and then I’m ready for something else.
I found this set at T.J. Maxx and then made the burlap pillow. I don’t just love it but it’s very “guestish” if you know what I mean. I should maybe just stick with neutrals and forget it.
That actually is what I did with the curtains.
I can’t say these won’t go with everything! And I actually love the way they turned out. To save money ( since this is such a HUGE sliding glass door) the top half is drop cloth and the ruffle is burlap. That way I didn’t need nearly as much fabric for the bottom.
Since I didn’t line them, I left the sheers up. Also, this is on the South side of the house. So the sun really heats things up.
So since things were looking all nice and spiffy Jack the cat decided this was his favorite room.
He has such a hard life.
So Jack suggested a dog and cat theme……
I was happy to have a new place to hang one of my all time favorite pictures.
I moved my little doggie collection in here for now. The green glittered tree…..that’s the closest thing I have to Christmas decorations so far.
Doggie on the bed side table.
And here’s the rest of the room.
and I had just painted this gray…….I keep telling myself it looks just fine…
I’m all ready for guests! As long as you don’t mind sleeping with a cat.
