Show Us Your Life - Guest Rooms

Kelly's Korner hosts a weekly Show Us Your Life series and this week's topic is Guest rooms!  We currently have two of our five bedrooms setup for guests so I'll share both today.


The main guest room is actually the house's master bedroom.  We moved into our guest room in January because it's sunnier.  Now we call this room the "master bedroom, er, I meant guest room.  Ugh.  You know the aqua one." most of the time.

Jake repainted this room from 'bonjour beige' to these pretty aqua colors in spring 2009 for my birthday.  I love color and Jake's an enabler.  :)  


Did  you notice our subtle accent wall behind the bed?  It's simply two shades darker than the other walls.

 We switched the rooms in January but I still use the walk-in closet in here.  Yup, there's a (small to today's standards) walk-in closet in our 1892 house!  Oh happy day!  I'd show it to you but we're in the middle of reconfiguring it.  No peeking!

This room has one of two old radiators in our house.  We've considered making radiator covers for them but there are so many other things on our to-do list.

The bed frame and dresser in here were thrifty finds.

Here's a closeup of the texture on the art above the bed.  It doesn't translate well on camera but I like the warmth it brings to the room in person.  


Max and Brewster like to sneak in here and lounge around.  From these photos I'm sure you'll understand why Jake calls her "Jumbo" and why we decided to get a king bed this year! :)

Let's take a quick stop by the next room.  Our secondary guest room is called "the blue room" around here.  As you'll see it hasn't changed much over the years.  It doesn't get much use but it has often become a dumping ground storage area when we're working on a DIY project.

Here's a cell phone photo from August 2007.

The next photo is from my old Kodak easy share in 2008.  This room holds a mix of baseball stuff, beachy things from when we lived in Old Orchard Beach, travel souvenirs, and other random stuff that we didn't put somewhere else in the house.

Photo from my pink camera taken in June 2009.
