I haven’t gotten around to showing you the complete Before and After pics of my guestroom yet. Now it’s Rhonda’s room, and she is a roommate and not a guest, but technically it’s the guest bedroom. I’ve really enjoyed having her and Cody around here and they make this place not so quiet and lonely. It’s been great so far!
So, I had to show you a shot of the Before guest bedroom. Remember this, back a year ago when we found this house and starting fixing it up. Yep! April 14th was closing date and here I am a year later, loving living here. God has truly blessed my socks off!
When Rhonda moved in with me last December, we went shopping and found this pretty bedding at TJ Maxx. It had great colors and she loved it so much and so did I. I already had this jute rug (that was in my old living room in B’ham) so it fit in here perfectly too. She’s made it a cozy space for her and Cody.
This pretty slipcovered chair came from Birmingham and was passed on to me from Grandma Eleanor. She made the slipcover herself. If you don’t remember Grandma Eleanor, she was my ex-H’s grandma and I’m sorry to say, she passed away last July. She was a feisty, funny lady and will be missed. She gave me several paintings that I will cherish too. I love this slipcovered chair. The cute green side table came from Homegoods and Rhonda picked up several things from there on one of our outings.
That’s Rhonda’s shell wreath and the little black sconce light fixture was one I picked up at a yardsale. All the bamboo blinds in here came from Payless Décor and I’m a Brand ambassador. These are all called Tibet and I love the style and color of them. I have been SO happy with all my bamboo blinds from Payless Décor, I can’t say enough good things about them.
Rhonda bought a standard bookcase to keep her things organized.
On this side of the room, she is using my old oak chest and cute oak desk and chair and it fits perfectly in there too, since I didn’t need them anywhere else.
The bedding has some great colors to pull from.
This oak chest and cute tiger eye oak desk, I’ve had for over 25 years and I don’t think I’ll ever get rid of them (or paint them!). I recovered that chair seat in lime green velvet and she added the lamp on the side table from Homegoods. It feels very homey in here now and she loves it.
All her essentials can be stored out of the way. Cody’s dog treats are very handy. He has been such a joy to have around too. He greets me every morning outside my door, waiting for me to get up and say hello to him. So sweet! He’s a Bishon/Yorkie mix and just too cute. He loves chewing on his dog chews and at just over a year old, still chews a LOT.
So, that’s how the guest room turned out. I’m happy it’s occupied by Rhonda and Cody. We have so much fun together.
