Guest Room by Thanksgiving, Part 2

It’s actually happening:  here I am a week later as promised for Linda’s One Room Challenge.  Amazed.

Hunting and gathering, that is what is going on around here at the moment for the guest room.  I’m searching for the perfect bed coverlet and fabric for the bed bolster.  I have ordered this rug, but I’m a little nervous about it being the wrong color and pattern.  Time will tell.

I found this fabulous Deco dresser for the room at Screen Door in Asheville a few months ago.  It’s been hanging out in the dining room until the guest room is finished.

Aren’t the rubbed gold handles beauties?  (I have this Greek key mirror, from Ballard Design Outlet, propped up here until it finds its forever home.)

Lights on, I have been loving the idea of layered lamps on one surface.  I will use this IKEA globe lamp, but I’m just trying out this vintage lamp for a look-see (found at Scott Antique Market years ago).  The black linen fabric from Lewis & Sheron is for the window treatment in the guest

Let’s look at those mismatched windows, shall we?www.tphblog.comThey are not the same height, which, no big deal, we are going to conceal with same-height cornice boards.  The problem comes with the fact that the windows are not the same distance off the floor (oh, builder of this house, why?) so that the roman shades will never be drawn up at the same height.  The OCD precisionist in me will get over it, possibly.  If you know a solution to this problem, please TELL ME.

In other news, the floors are ready for me to start the decorative finish.  Check out the new black border:

Chris has busted his knees removing the white paint from these floors.  But his sander could only get so close to the baseboard without damaging the baseboards, which we didn’t want to spend the time or money to remove.  Our solution to the residual white paint that ran along all the walls is this 4″ slap-your-mother black band of paint.  I didn’t know how much I would love it!  Just another happy accident on the list.

This box above that Chris is painting is in the grasscloth alcove–I’m hoping to paint a pattern on the floor here before Thanksgiving…as well as a mural in the guest room.  So Angela is feeling ambitious, eh?

I want to say a HUGE thank you to Chris for being willing to clean up so many of the messes here after the remodel.  Truly a lifesaver!

I hope to start the decorative finish this weekend, which will be a dark gray so there won’t be as much contrast with the black band as there is now.  It feels so good to have this space almost usable, finally!

See you next week, or earlier on Instagram!  Don’t forget to catch up with the other ORC participants.
