Guest Room Preview

Here is a preview of my new guest room. The valances were made from two panels that I picked up from a thrift store. I cut them down last night and it was one of the easiest projects I've ever done. I have another panel leftover that I may make pillows with; not sure. $5 The tops are different on my valances, but I think I like them. If I decide otherwise, I can make another pocket valance like the one over the window seat. I do plan to put a new cushion on the window seat... this one came with the house and is pretty old. The two pillows you see below went with the room's old color scheme. They will be going to my daughter's house soon.
I need to buy pillows: this is a new bedspread with shams... the beige pillow covers were another thrift store find. I have to find pillow forms to tuck inside. I love these! You see a small scrap of valance fabric on the bed too.


Below is another thrift store find: an old plastic "froo froo" frame. ($1) I'm going to paint it and make a padded bulletin board to use in this room. It will probably have pictures of my new grandbaby tucked inside all its ribbon holders. :D

I am very open to ideas and suggestions, so please leave comments!

Love it so far, I love the way the window is set back into a cubby. Your wall color looks like the color we used on our bedrooms.

HI pen pen,
Looks real nice, see how handy and creative you are? Did you make the pillows with the other panel?

Love that mirror! Those valances are nice.

Love your taste in colors chosen. I think little pillows made out of the valance extra against the beige shams would be pretty... or valance material on your window seat. LOVE the window seat...
