The Guest Room!

 
The Guest Room! 

We recently painted our boys room and created it into a guest room. We still have some finishing touches to do. We plan to replace the light fixture. It was a light and ceiling fan. During the teen years of the boys growing up it became a two bladed ceiling fan, creating a noise that was like a helicopter. 

When asked"how did two blades of the ceiling fan come off?"     

"We don't know mom?!?" A mystery yet to be solved.

I also plan to sew curtains, add furniture and art work. 

The room was blue with a wall paper border.


Miss Penelope checking out the bed.

 


My decorating theme for the guest room is travel. I am using some of the boys travel LEGO sets in decorating. I also am using some of my husbands vintage camera's.

 


A vintage Wisconsin puzzle our son Atticus put together. I used Mod Podge to make the puzzle into a perfect wall hanging for the travel themed guest room.

We used Benjamin Moore paint, the color is Timber Wolf. My mom crocheted a lovely rug for the room that I will share soon.. more updates to come.

  1. I love how the boys are still represented in the guest room (especially with the ceiling fan mystery!) Penelope looks gorgeous on the bed!

  2. You got a lot done on the room and still have some final touches that will make this a welcoming room for guests. I love the double windows and I bet the view is fantastic up there. The slanted ceiling reminds me of my grandmother's house years ago.

    I'm noticing the daylight is getting longer and it's so welcome.
    Take care and stay safe.
    Hugs, Julia

  5. I think you are under the wrong impression that this will be a guest room. It is obviously Miss Penelope's room, and she intends to keep it.

  9. Wow, everything looks great, Carla. I love all the DIY and special touches in the room. Mostly, I love the story of the fan. Everyone's got one of those kid, "I don't know" tales, but ceiling fan blades, huh? Very mysterious!! Enjoy the weekend!

  13. I like the color of the new room, Carla. It's soft and cozy. That's a great idea to turn the puzzle into an art piece. Puzzles are so fun to put together. I like the windows with the wood. I have similar windows but with white. The vintage cameras will be a nice touch. Penelope looks like she's comfortable on the bed. It looks wonderful, Carla. Can't wait to see more.

  14. Strangest thing, I don't know and I didn't do it lived at my house for many years. They moved out about the same time as my kids. lol It's going to be a very nice guest room.

  15. It is always fun to re-do a room. I'm guessing those missing blades just may remain a mystery for years to come.... Great color...
