It’s Feature Friday! On Fridays, I’ll be featuring one room in my house in its current condition even if there are some things I’d like to change about it. If I do happen to improve something later, I can always revisit it when the time comes. Plus, I’d kinda feel dishonest if I only focused on “finished” rooms in my house. And if what they (the professionals) say is true, a room is never really finished anyways…you’re always tweaking it. Concentrating on just one room weekly should give me some time to tidy it up a bit, too.
We’re fortunate enough to have an extra bedroom that serves triple duty: guest bedroom, craft room and playroom. It’s a little more playful than the rest of our house. Take a peek!
The bed frame was actually Handy Hubby’s in college and was wood veneer in pretty bad shape. I sanded it down, primed and painted it. The bed linens are simple white with cheerful, geometric pillows.
The frame above the bed was actually supposed to be a mirror but it arrived shattered. In a bit of luck, the sender let me keep the empty frame because it was going to be more expensive for them to ship back and repair than sell…2 for the price of 1! It’s the same frame/mirror as in our living room – only I painted the living room one black and this one white.
I found a pair of metallic gold sunburst plaques at Goodwill for $4. I spray painted them white and leaned each in a windowsill.
Right next to the bed is a long, narrow table where I sew and do other crafty things…although not nearly as much as I’d like. I found the lamp at a thrift store and the fabric storage boxes came from JoAnn’s on clearance. The scroll wall pieces are from local antique malls. I painted them white…surprise!
There is one large blank wall across from the guest bed. Someday, I hope to add family photos. The closet is my craft closet. See how I organized it here. Yep, it’s still organized!
Finally, the play area includes a hand painted train table, a reading spot and a bookcase for toys.
Here’s my little playmate now…sans pants…
So if you ever want to come sleep, sew or play (without your pants on) at my house, you can do it all within the confines of this room.
FYI – A huuuuuge ‘thank you’ to my mom who let me borrow her computer for this week’s posts…including today’s Feature Friday.
