Guest Bedroom

Since our little peanut will be arriving in March I figured I need to get the guestroom finished.  Ya know, just in case someone has the urge to spend the night to help us out those first few nights at home. 

So far all that is in the rom is the headboard I redid a while back,
a full size bed, and a few things to go on the wall.  I was having a super hard time figuring out what I wanted the colors to be in this room but I think I have it narrowed down now.  For the bed linens I would like to have something in grays & whites.  The wall color will be a pale yellow.  The accesories I have for the wall are all white.  I want it to be a cheery room that will look inviting (not that I don't want any of our house to look "not inviting", but you know what I mean, right?). 

Here are some of the bedding options I've been tossing around:
Target Home™ Tile Stitch Quilt - Gray
Simply Shabby Chic® Elegant Neutrals Comforter Set
Room Essentials® Solid Comforter - Gray
DwellStudio® for Target® Andalucia Comforter Set 
Room Essentials® Floral Comforter - Black/Yellow

And there is always Marshalls, Ross, & TJ Maxx.  I am trying to finish out this room for around $100.  Know of any good sales on bedding?

Take a Seat

This chair is super similar to the last chair I redid.  Different bones, same fabric.  I just can't get enough of this fabric!  Here is the chair I started out with that I found at a thrift store going out of business...does it get any better than that?  I mean sure, sad they're going out of business but makes for a decent thrifting day for yours truely.


I did some light sanding, priming, and spray painting and that sealed the deal for the chair part.  Next was ripping off all that nasty fabric and putting on the brand new fabric.  I think I like doing that part best because I can be inside and have the tv on...(and my true laziness shines through).

Oh Baby!

You have probably noticed the sporatic posts lately.  Gone for 2 weeks and then a post everyday for 3 days in a row, then MIA again.  Well, I have kind of a good explanation for that.  Back in July my husband and I found out we are expecting our first baby!  We are due around the middle of March...and...IT'S A BOY!!!

We are super excited and feel extremely blessed.  I have been super tired so I haven't gotten near as much done redoing things as I would like.  I'm slowly but surely starting to pick back up. 

We actually made our first baby purchase a couple weeks ago.  An Ironman running stroller!  Gotta love Craigslist!

This won't be turning into an "all baby all the time" type blog but it will have us redoing what will soon become the nursery and hopefully some thrifty finds to put in it.

There are a lot of yard sales in our area this week so I'm hoping to hit them up and score big!
