Where We Live: The Guest Bedroom

It's time again for Kelly's Korner's "Show Us Where You Live Friday." This week is the guest room edition.

Our guest room is actually Brad's and my old bedroom. Our house has two bedrooms that are basically the same size, but one is rectangular and the other square. We wanted a king size bed, and the other room was the room in which the king bed would fit, so we swapped. The thing about living in an old house though is that there is a lack of closet space. So, Brad's clothes are still in this room and mine are in our room!


This is room as you walk in the door. I love bedding, so I try to get inexpensive sets so I won't feel bad when I get tired of it. This bedding is from Target. The chest and basket are full of blankets, beach towels, and old towels to use for doggy baths!


This bookshelf is home for many different things: sentimental knick knacks, Spanish novels, picture albums, and pictures.


One of several farm pictures Brad's sister took for him, a wedding picture with my mom and sisters, and the cotton picker that was on top of Brad's groom's cake -- it happens to be the exact one he has in real life!


I love these little statues we brought back from Africa.


Brad's dresser and closet =) and my vanity.


This is the vanity I use to do my hair and makeup -- our bathroom is tiny.
The vanity was given to me by my Mema, and it was my great-grandmother's.

I feel the same way about bedding! I buy nice sheets so they are smooth, but cheaper comforters and such. I agree with Kelly- you have great style!

I like that y'all use your guest room as an extention of your room. We do the same thing. My closet and vanity are in our guest room. Oh, but wait! Our guest room is now Eliza Faris' room. It makes it hard because getting ready is most easily done while she's sleeping. Oh well, we'll make it out of this 2 bedroom house one day! I like your idea about buying less expensive bedding so you can switch. Thanks for sharing!!

Great pictures of your guest room! Love it! What about those two frames on the wall with the black and white photography in them? Did you take those pictures? They're great!

Also, what a beautiful picture of you, your mom, and your sisters on your wedding day. You were and ARE beautiful!!!!!

PS - I'm placing a bet that as soon as Blair is mobile, the bottom three shelves of your bookshelf will be rearranged to exactly what she thinks looks best! Ha - good luck! ;)

Sigh. I remember having a guest room and a vanity. And extra room to hang clothes.....

but I wouldn't go back for anything. I happen to like the occupants of the rooms. :)
