Today I finally finished my office/guest room. All I was waiting for was to find the finishing touches, and they are finally in place. Yay!
This room used to be Justin's. He never appreciated the view and kept it . . . well . . . not very tidy. It was pretty beat up after having a teenager in it for 4 1/2 years. Well, when he moved out last year I did what any normal empty nester would do - I took his room and moved my office into it. I mean, it has the best view in the house. So . . . doesn't that sound logical? Paint, carpet, furniture, linens - you name it, I replaced it! It was turned into a wonderful new guest room/office. But when Justin moved back home, I thought to myself "Now why would I put a 20 year old guy/slob into my brand new room?" Hello? So I put him into his brother's room, (which was the next project on my list - but now it's on hold). I KNOW Brandon will not be moving back home. (But if he ever does need to spend the night, like on Christmas Eve and Easter Eve, he has a really nice room to stay in. With a view!)
So anyway! Got to rambling there . . . here's the room!
This is the SW corner where I placed my desk. Obviously, I love the view! It's foggy over in the valley today though, so it's kinda hard to see.
Behind me is a little sitting area by the closet.
This is the other side of the room. I just hung the plates this morning. I've had that picture for about 20 years now. It used to be pale, pale blue, I just painted it black when I decided to hang it in this room. I wanted a creme and black toile comforter, but I couldn't find one for a reasonable price at the time I was looking. So finally selected this one instead. Because I wanted the boys to be comfortable in here, I wanted it somewhat masculine. And they both approved of it all when I finished it up.
The nightstand . . . just waiting for an overnight guest.
You know how I am longing for a cabin of our own in Colorado? Well, on our vacation last summer Mark found this artist who did small miniature watercolors of cabins.
He surprised me by purchasing one for me! Unbeknownst to me,
here is what it says on the back.
Now I can "honestly" say Mark bought me my very own cabin in Colorado.
(Isn't he just a clever guy? He knew exactly how to get out of that one!)
Below is my "Sister Angel" I got for Christmas
from my Sister-in-Law Christie whom I LOVE!!!!
I knew exactly where I wanted her when I opened her up.
I could not snatch these guys up fast enough when I saw them at Home Goods.
I knew I'd find a good home for them.
When I found this shell plague, I thought it finished things off nicely.
So that's the room. Home you enjoyed the little tour!
Have a good week ahead everyone! Be safe!
