Guest Room Update: ORC Week 4


The One Room Challenge continues with some amazing decorating happening!




Have you visited the links at Linda's blog?

There are ladies who are building on to their houses and everything!!
Makes my little guest bedroom fluffing look like a piece of cake. ;)

Cottage Guest Bedroom

In the last few days, the artwork has been moved to another wall. Lamps have been shuffling around the house. I have used my supreme Stitch Witch ironing skills and made a cord cover for the lamp.

It's the little things. :)

My brother was subjected to Ikea when we passed through  Round Rock, TX the other day. We bought a chair for the guest room.

I have vacuumed the room and stared at it endlessly because it's coming together beautifully.
The other day I realized that a wall cabinet that has been in my closet for 4 years need to hang
in this room. Woo hoo! Happy about that. 

Carry on now and have a wonderful week.
Thank you everyone for your sweet comments here and on Facebook.

What's the one thing that you think every guest room should have?

Why, a guest, of course ;) Maybe I should come spend the night!

You are making great progress! I think every guest room should have a place to set a suitcase, other than the floor and closet space with hangers.

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

So nice when you can finally use something you've had in storage! The most important thing in a guest room is a comfortable place to sleep!

One thing I appreciate when visiting a friend is a bit of closet space and perhaps an empty drawer or two so we don't have to live out of a suitcase.

A chair...I think it gives a guest a nice place to retreat to for a bit! Can't wait to see the reveal...and yay for stitch witchery!

Kelly said...

I didn't realize that you were part of the ORC! How fun! I will have to continue to follow your progress. I know your guest room will turn out great.

Kathleen Grace said...

hat should every guest room have? I'm petty partial to a homey quilt for cold nights. The room is looking great :)

Gypsy Heart said...

Great job! I think having great pillows to sleep on, a carafe and glass for water (yes, I drink a lot of water!) recent magazines and a throw to curl up with.

Have a wonderful weekend!

So nice that you're getting to use the wall cabinet again! It's going to all come together beautifully! As a guest, I always appreciate a bedside lamp and a little closet space. Oh, and their wifi password. :)

It is all those wonderful baby steps that make us proud and make progress in our homes! I can't wait to see your reveal photos. I've made no progress...LOL...no vanity! Hugs!!

No surprise, I love it!

Hugs!

Stacey, it looks like everything is coming along nicely.

What is the one thing every guest room should have? I think the grace and love you give to your guests speaks far more than a particular item in a room. If your guests feel loved....then the room is the icing on the cake, in my opinion.

You're doing a great job.

Stacey,
The first thing that popped into my head for what every guest room needs is an empty drawer, then hanging space in a closet. The room is coming together very nicely, and I'm looking forward to seeing the wall cabinet that's been hiding.

Let me know the next time you go to the Round Rock Ikea! You were so close to me! It would be so fun to go shopping together!

Consider It All Joy said...

It's coming along nicely! My first thought when you asked what a guest room needs was: ME :) Many blessings, Cindy

Betty from My Irish Cottage Home said...

Can't wait to see it all done. A book, carafe, and a cozy lap quilt.

Oliva Ohlson said...

It's looking great so far! Can't wait to see the reveal! Have a wonderful weekend!

Suzanne said...

I think every guest room should have a bottle of water, glasses, and an extra blanket, especially this time of year. I love the pretty touches. Always fun to have guests to appreciate your room!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Hi Stacey, Your guest room is looking beautiful. I think every guest room needs an empty dresser drawer, mirror, a cozy extra throw, magazines and a welcome basket with some goodies.
Have a great rainy Halloween weekend.xo

Pepper Medley said...

I think every guest room needs a chair. A place to sit when putting on socks and shoes or to read a book. OR, to set a suitcase on. They can be purchased inexpensively at a second hand shop or consignment shop and some are easy to re-cover. Waiting to see how your guest room turns out! xo

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

It's fun to watch this :) As to the question, I'd say a book or two or some magazines and a quilt or throw at the foot of the bed?

Gracious... I was so behind reading your blog, how did that happen? Can't wait to see your room reveal! Sounds like it is coming along nicely! I love it when I can "shop my house," and reuse things in different areas! The garden tips were great! Thanks for those! ...and thanks for visiting me and for the kind comments always left! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! ~Rhonda

A few months ago my sisters came to visit. One went up to her room to shower and get ready for the day. Wasn't long before I noticed she was back downstairs sitting on the sofa. I said I thought you were going to go shower. And she said "Well, I went up stairs. Turned on the shower. Got undressed and started to step in when I noticed there wasn't ANY SOAP. NO SOAP ANYWHERE. So, I had to get dressed and come back down and wait until YOU got out of the bathroom to ask for some." She was not happy. I was mortified! I realized that when I had been up there getting the room and bath ready, I decided to change out the soaps that were there to new fancy ones. But I got busy with a hundred other things I wanted do before they got there and forgot all about replacing the soap! I was sooo embarrassed! So, my vote is soap! Your room looks great! Xoxo

That throw with the pom poms is lovely and I've always been a fan of cord covers for lamps. I just think it's little touches like that, that make a room super cozy.

I actually don't have a guest room, but I've been seeing baskets with little things in them stashed somewhere in the room. It could include things that a guest may have forgotten like toothpaste, a toothbrush, lotion or razor's or even a couple of magazines for them to read. I've always thought that was a great idea. Have a wonderful weekend... :)

My guest room is still a work in progress - the bed is there and a piece of furniture and curtains but there is NOTHING hanging on the walls. It feels unfinished - but there were so many other things to do when I moved in!!! I'm excited to see more of your guest room to get inspiration! I love having a little framed sign with the WiFi login and password in a guest room. Along with a couple of bottles of water, granola bars, magazines, tissues. And of course towels, an extra blanket, and a clean fluffy robe and slippers.

That throw looks amazing. I can't wait to see.
