This post should really be titled, Teeny Tiny Guest Bedroom, and Can Somebody Help Me, Please?
For a long time, I've wanted to do something different in this room.
Since we don't often have guests, I'm really bad to use it as a catch-all for projects I'm working on, and most of the time, I leave the ironing board up in there.
But, I thought I'd show you anyway, and maybe it'll motivate me to do something different with it.
The room is a tiny 10 x10, and the furniture has to stay...for now.
The bed and tables are "family pieces"...also known as "odds and ends"...
...so, gotta work with what I have.
Forget about painting the furniture; Hubby would have a fit.
For some reason, the room looks larger in the photo, than in "person". It could be that I'm standing in the hall to photograph it. The walls look white, but they're actually cream.
Do you think I should paint them darker?
I like the bird picture, however, I've been shopping around for something larger, to put over the headboard.
The bed is part of the set my mom and dad bought when they got married.
Oh gosh, don't look at the wrinkly throw on the bed, and the stuff on the floor.
The drum table is another "family piece", and so's the little stool holding the magazines.
Tell me, would you use a round tablecloth on the drum table, and get rid of the stool?
This wall just has this picture, and then, the door is to the right.
I've had the picture for years, and I'm ready for it to go.
I put a lantern with a faux candle, on this side, to use for a night light...just a little something different than the lamp on the other side.
For fun I used a chamber pot to hold gardenias and ivy. The "bedside table" is actually my mom's old sewing machine.
Here's a closer look at it...
Yikes!...the reality of it all is this...I moved everything from the bed to the floor, so I could take the photos.
We're getting ready for a yard sale in a couple of weeks, and this is just a tiny bit of stuff I'm thinking of putting out.
What I didn't show you is the other side of the room, but in a 10 x10 room, what can I put on the other side of the room...
...besides the ironing board?
I'd love it if y'all would give some suggestions for how to make this room better...I know...first thing...clean up all the junk on the floor and take down the ironing board. :)
