We are almost finished with the first guest room.
Carpet was laid on Monday and Wednesday the bed was delivered.
Doug took our wooden fireplace surround we used in the screen room and made a back and hearth for it – doesn’t look too bad for a faux one.
This is it from a couple years ago getting when we were getting ready for one of our home shows – it’s all just stained brown and no base for support.
The rest of the room is taking shape.
I need to make a bed skirt yet – the one that’s on there is tan and basically the same color as the bedspread.
I will also make some curtains for the 2 side book cases so we can hid the kids toys and books.
See that wooden rocker – Doug bought it for me 44 years ago this Christmas. Our youngest son Brett was born that August and I so wanted a rocker.
He put it on lay-away and paid on every week until Christmas…it was a wonderful huge surprise.
It still looks fantastic as old as it is.
I want to leave the room simple – I think it will probably stay pretty much how it is now, but we are not concentrating anymore up there – now it’s Christmas things. It’s good enough for now….plus I don’t think we will have overnight guests for quite awhile.
Now for a few Christmas pictures – some things may look familiar – I stuck with some of the same decorating.
It’s hard for me to break out of my mold when I get something I like.
Although – next year I will hopefully do something a lot more plainer and Primitive to the mantle.
But for this year anyway the Santa’s and Snowmen and fun things will stay because of the little ones.
I didn’t do a lot – but did use lots of greens and berries.
So there’s Christmas at our house this year…and I do hope I can change it all out next year.
I like some of my decorations but I will hopefully place them differently.
We put wreaths on all the fences…10 in all. And then the porches are the same as every year.
