I have a few random pictures from the week before I get into our 'before' and 'after' of our guestroom.
Several times a year, our library has a booksale (and movies, magazines etc), where everything is 25 cents, sometimes cheaper...I think I bought Les Miserables for 10 cents several years ago, and that book is HUGE! A couple of weeks ago they were having a 25 cent sale and I picked up Alicia Silverstone's "the Kind Diet", which I read before and had made and loved several of the recipes. That 25 cent purchase on this hard cover book that I love, made my day :).
I love Annabelle's drawing, which I believe she must have made based off the scripture and song about Faith being like a little seed, that if planted and cared for, will grow.
put drywall up for the ceilings and hallway, we had someone come do the texture, I painted the ceiling, hallway and guest room, I took down the old baseboards and the old moulding on the lower half of the wall which I didn't like, and then Scott put up beadboard and new baseboard.
As he finished the beadboard/baseboard, I painted it with a white, glossy finish. Then he did the electrical, putting in three new outlets,
and he built a closet into the space that was made awkward by our new hallway.
we got a new bed ordered for Elisabeth (she had a queen that we wanted to use for the guest room, and we got her a Full, which also fit her room better as she shares with Annabelle) and brought her bed in here and got the room all set up!
