Spring Garden Decorating in the Farmhouse Guest Room

It’s less than a week until the first day of spring, so I removed all traces of winter from my guest house and decorated with a fresh spring garden theme. I loved my woodland winter theme, but I’m so over winter!

Woodland Christmas Guest Room Tour

I’m going to test your literary knowledge today, okay? I’m going to quote a paragraph from a book, and you see if you can tell me what book it’s from. It’s a classic, so I think most of you will know it. Here we go …

Guest House Refresh Because Company Is Coming

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc., and its advertiser.  All opinions are mine alone. #BigLotsHome#CollectiveBias I freak out a little when I  have a house guest coming. Actually, I freak out a lot. I know they come to see us, and not our house, but I want our guests to feel welcome, be comfortable, and not wish they had booked a hotel room instead of staying with us. 🙂 My oldest son’s girlfriend is arriving for a visit {Read More}

Guest House Fall Window Box Refresh for Fall

I don’t really “do” Halloween, but quite unintentionally, sometime between May and September, my cute little guest house turned into a haunted house … spider webs and all. I was away from home for several weeks at a time this summer, and all the pretty flowers in my pallet window box died in my absence. When I came home from the most recent trip last week, I discovered that the spiders had taken up residence and had made webs in every corner {Read More}

Ladder Plant Stand Blooming in the Guest Room

I usually fill the rungs of the  ladder in my guest room with old things, but it occurred to me that since the ladder sits right next to the window, I should take advantage of that natural light and use it as a plant stand – at least through the summer and fall months. I took down the cafe lights I had hung in there (seen here), because I’m hoping to move the lights to either our front patio or back {Read More}

Cafe Lights in the Guest Room

When your kids are babies, life is all about cute little outfits, decorating the nursery, and getting photos to mark their 3rd, 6th, 9th, and 12th month moments, and nobody really warns you about what may be coming in the days ahead, do they?

Window Flower Box for the Guest House

There are things we know we should never, ever do.  Things we’ve known since we were young. Things like: Never cross the street without looking both ways first. Never interrupt someone while they are talking. And whatever you do, never, ever, ever go shopping on an empty stomach, because if you get to the store and it’s the day they are offering free samples, you’ll get home, unpack your groceries, and realize you bought 10 pounds of amazing raspberry cheddar gourmet cheese, a 48-count case {Read More}

Salvaged Metal and Wood Sign, Answered Questions about the Guest Room & the Nightmare on the Other Side

A few weeks ago, I shared some industrial style inspiration I found while vacation. One of the things I fell in love with, was this sign made of corrugated metal and a wood frame.  I added it to my “must make” list of things to do when I got back home. I knew I had some corrugated metal (leftover from my guest room remodel), and my nephew gave me an antique wood frame, that he found in the abandoned house behind {Read More}

Guest Cottage Room REVEAL {in an Old Farmhouse Shed}

It’s finally finished!  We started this project in July of last year, and I was overly optimistic, and thought my new guest cottage room / photo studio would be done by the end of September.  Ha!  Well, at least it was completed before the end of September this year.  It was worth the wait though, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. To give you an idea of the work that went into this room, you have to {Read More}

Lighting in the Guest Room

It’s crunch time.  My mom arrives on Tuesday morning, so my husband and I are cramming to finish up the guest room, as well as get the house cleaned, which has desperately needed it. One of the final projects he has worked on, was getting lighting installed.  I was in Lowes a few days ago, and found the most awesome barn-style wall light.  They sell a larger one as well, but this one was perfect to use as a bedside {Read More}
