Guest Room/Office

Our guest room - no matter what house we have lived in - has always been a guest room/office and has ALWAYS been a sore spot in our house.  If you don't believe me, you can see the pictures below.  It has always been the "catch all" room.  It has come to the point where I just don't even want to walk in there and I have to shut the door if I ever have guests over.  Also the bed was so covered with junk that if someone needed to spend the night - they would have no place to sleep.  So this morning I got up and decided to re-organize this room.  You are going to think I'm crazy, but I had to put a desk in our closet and the dresser and mirror in the guest closet - yes....if we have the space why not use it!  In fact, my husband did call me crazy in the process.  But it turned out great!!!!!  Even Joseph likes it, so that makes me happy!  See the pictures for a before and after.

It's not fully completed, I still have to hang curtains and hang pictures on the wall and such, but it is already a huge improvement.  We also have walking room in the room and a better place for our recliner.  I actually enjoy this room now!  YAY  -  Now we can have guests!

Fridge re-do

My husband LOVES fridge magnets and we have a ton of them - and he uses ALL of them.  Therefore, our fridge has been taken over with paper and magnets....he's not the only guilty one...I use them too.  I also have my cookbooks just a top the fridge because I don't have another place in the kitchen for them.  My mother-in-law was very generous and bought us some WONDERFUL book ends!  I'll just let the pictures do the talking from here:



Not a 100% improvement, but better.  At least it's a good view from the living room.

Just got inspired

I was just inspired to move things around.....I haven't done it yet, but I will be keeping my eye out for a small little desk for our bedroom.  We are thinking of moving the "office" out of guest room and into a neat and organized little corner in our bedroom.  We'll see what we come up with.  I will be on the look out for something perfect!  Let me know if anyone comes across a small but useful desk.
