Be my guest, be my guest, be my guest

Last month on one of my cleaning and organizing missions, I decided to tackle the guest bedroom. I took down all the colorful plates and put up white ones. Then I changed the dust ruffle and quilt to all white. I put a little tray on the bed with a cottage book, some flowers and of course, a little bunny thingy.

One day I will make a real cushion for the window seat, but it's not on my priority list right now.

This is a really old frame I picked up in a junk shop. I love the way it looks without a picture. I spray painted the fleur de lis white as it was an icky gold color and then hung it on the nail that holds the frame. I love the simple look of this.

The bed is king size, so it's extra comfy. Out the window is a view of the pond. It's very quiet here as bunnies don't make much noise at all. So do you want to be my guest?

Oh, HECK, YEAH! What a beautiful, restful room. Great...now I have to go and clean out our guest room. Compared to yours, mine looks like storage!

I'd like to reserve a week in September next year, please! lol

Well I'd love to except...I'd have to go through a people car wash first because with 3 black Labs, I don't care how careful you are, you come away with dog hair somewhere on your person LOL I wouldn't want one speck of black dog hair in that beautiful white room!

Jessica said...

I'd love to come for a visit! It looks so lovely and relaxing, unfortunately I don't think it would stay that way if I bring the kids!

I would love to be your guest, however I would be afraid I might leave a chocolate fingerprint on something. Beautiful and comfy.

Karen M said...

It looks so perfectly relaxing. But are you sure that there is room for all of us in that bed? King-size is big, but it sounds like we all want a piece of it!
