Guest Bedroom Complete…Partial Reveal!!

First, let me say that I have been fighting with Live Writer and Picasa for three days!!!  My very first blog was easier to publish!  I think that I have it figured out – well at least my photos are showing up now. I came really close to blog murder!!!  Yes, I could have put up a post the old way. But, I was not going to give up!  So, I really hope this turns out okay!


I have been talking about this room make-over for way too long.

I have been working on this room for WAY too long!!!!

So, I am calling it finished, at least for now. I have so many other things that I need to be doing.

I almost accomplished everything on my check list (“Guest Room Update”).

The chairs didn’t get their slipcovers or their pillows.  As things progressed,  I started to appreciate the blue pear fabric.  I still plan to make cream linen pillows to replace the velvet bolsters, but the slipcovers are out for now.

I am going to put up a couple of photos tonight.  I am just too tired and too blog weary to do any more!!


Blue, blue, my world is blue…Ha!   A musical blast from the past!!!  Wow, I told ya I was tired!!       

I broke this pretty lamp ( seems there is a limit to how far you screw a light bulb in)  and tripped the circuit breaker, so the final photos are a little different.    Whoops, there is a hammer and bowl in the chair too!! 

Okay, one more before I rest my aching brain!



If this post is successful,  I will be back with the rest of this story.  If it’s a flop,  you can find me crying myself to sleep.
