This last week the guest room got a make over. We are calling it the guest room, but really it is MY room. I am thinking of moving in there. Poor Greg, he’ll never see me anymore.
So here is the before picture (and let me just say, I Hated this room. Really. Couldn’t stand it. Never went in it. I think I was actually a little afraid of it. And the indoor outdoor carpet the previous owners put in had stains and smelled Bad. You get the picture. I HATED this room.)
Yes, the room is a bowling alley. It’s something like 6 feet wide and 28 feet long. It use to be the back porch in a previous life. I think the previous owners used it as an office, judging by the insane amount of cable and electrical outlets it had. And the florescent six feet long shop lights. ICK!
Okay, so this is the transformation:
Greg built the cozy nook and put in the carpet and I painted every square inch of the room. It took me three straight days and man o man, was I tired when I was done. I don’t mind painting one bit, but all that raw wood just sucked up the paint and it took forever.
But I am very pleased, as is my dog Disney. She thinks it is the best room in the house. She just likes the carpet. The rest of the house is hardwood floors. She’s slips around a lot on them. She LOVES carpet. So it’s my retreat/reading room now and clearly my favorite place in the house. My favorite room use to be my office. A very soothing sage green room, complete with my desk top computer. Sorry office, you’ve been upstaged. 🙂
