…guestroom love

I have the cutest room over the garage with high-pitched ceiling lines. I love it so much that I wish all our rooms had the little window alcoves and cosiness that comes with the slants & corners.

David Sedaris recently wrote an aritcle in The New Yorker stating that he had really “made it” because now had a guest room. I kinda hear what he is saying. I recently changed over this room from a sitting space to a guestroom maybe because I wanted a project or maybe because it would be a great place to hide out and finish a book!

Yes, I moved my blue shutters up here to match the Duck Egg dresser that you will see.

I’ve had this bed for about 2 years now and no one ever purchased it. So I re-painted it in Old White and it’s just perfect. I’ve always loved the curves and casters. How special!

Not the perfect lighting for a great shot, but you get the idea of the full room.

What do you think Mr. Sedaris?

    Fabulous bed!! I can’t believe no one ever bought it. I painted a sleigh bed in an antique white and it turned out absolutely beautiful. I also love the duck egg blue dresser!! This feels like a very inviting guest room!

  6. Christen! I’m loving the Duck Egg paint! However, have you added some old white to it? As before it’s seemed more of a vivid colour than it does in the photos, I love the calm hue! Hope you see this! Thanks, Jen.

    (p.s can’t believe no one bought the bed?! If I wasn’t in the UK I definitely would’ve!)

    Just beautiful. I ran across your site yesterday after I saw your chalk paint tutorials. You make it look so easy, I can’t wait to start on several projects. Thanks for sharing so others can learn.

    Oh my gosh! Gorgeous. How has no one purchased that bed? Is it a queen?
