Progress In My Quest For A Guest Bedroom

Twin Beds

I’ve never had a guest bedroom. Well…technically I suppose I did when I first got married and way back when I only had one child but it’s been a LONG time.

Kaleigh moved out a year ago, and me being so on-the-ball about getting things done around here, we’re now working on turning the spare bedroom into a cute guest bedroom.

I toyed with the idea of moving my work room up here. Or turning it into a hangout space for the two kiddos still at home. But honestly this room still functions best for us as a bedroom so a bedroom it will stay.

Bedroom Makeover

My Bedroom Makeovers and Why They’re Nothing Like a DIY Show

Bedroom MakeoverHGTV teases you with the idea that you can makeover a room in a day or 2. Some even take 3 or 4 days. I don’t buy it. Not truly.

Do you ever dream about how you would decorate a second home if you ever had the chance? I do.

For instance, I often dream about how I would decorate a beach house if I ever had the chance. Or a mountain cabin. Or a lake house. Or a guest cottage.

This is one of those day dreams I hope to see fulfilled. One of these days.

In the meantime, I oooh and ahhh over the ones I see online.
And in this case…the one I got to sleep in.

Lake Cottage Master Bedroom

An Unexpected Gift

Lake Cottage Master Bedroom (2)

Last week, after all the wedding planning, company coming to town, long distance road trips and conference attending, we packed up the family and went to the lake for a few days.

We arrived in shifts and left in shifts, due to everyone’s conflicting schedules, but we managed to all be together at least part of the time.

Every time you’re able to get away with the family is a gift but the unexpected gift came as everyone began planning the trip back home.
