Guess what time it is...

Winter is here.  That means it's time to work on a new room.  We have emptied our upstairs guestroom and it is prepped and ready for some business.

FIRST  it will get this wall treatment... I cropped the photo because it was a model home and had a super tacky fake tree in the corner.... I can't handle those.

Next, the walls will get some color.  Here is the magazine tear-out that I have been using around the house for color inspiration.  This room will be the greenish color.

Ugh, then we gotz to talk furniture.  The room is small.  Has to have a daybed.  I have been looking at my local thrifts to find a metal bed similar to this one at Pottery Barn just $700 cheaper.  I am not in a hurry to furnish because step 1 and 2 won't be done immediately.

 How can you have a room with no lighting?

Oooooo and a rug?

Lastly it needs a dog.... rolling all over the $3,000 rug.  Hahahaha.  I have gone way over the top on the list of what I wish is to come... just on a 50% off budget.  Let's stick with steps 1 and 2 for now.  Night!

  1. O girl I love decorating! Cant wait to see the room as you get it together! We have an ice cream place here that does "pup-cups" with plain vanilla ice cream for doggies. We always take Willow when we go so she can enjoy hers too!

  2. Quincy loves to go to dairy queen for a cone when he has been a good boy. Starbucks just squirts whipped cream in a cup... i like them for myself. haha!
