Show Us Where You Live Friday

Kelly at http://www.kellyskornerblog.com/ has been hosting "Show Us Where You Live Friday" for a couple of weeks now and I've been wanting to play along! She posted hers a bit early tonight and I just couldn't resist to play along early, as well, since I was the first to link my blog! Yay! So I'll do this weeks and then play catch up for the past two weeks.


This is our guest room. The bed is hand-me-down from Brad's old room and the side table is a cheap fake wood thing from my old room. We redid this last summer, including repainting and new bedding. The paisley duvet and shams are from Pottery Barn. The sheets are bamboo sheets from Target. The white coverlet and pillows were a steal from Marshalls at $25! I bought the curtains from Target. There is also a roll-top desk on the other wall that holds tons of stuff, which is a hand-me-down from my parents. The walls are plain and blah but I'm not going to do anything to them since this will likely be Will's room at the beginning of the year once we fix up the nursery for the new baby!


LAST WEEK: LIVING ROOMS

We repainted our living room last summer. The wainscotting was a medium wood color and we painted it white. The walls were yellow and I chose this light mocha-ish color which I love. Brad's parents treated us to a wonderful new couch and chair with ottoman and after Will was born my dad and his dad gave us the recliner. I love the picture above the fireplace. My coworkers gave it to me for my birthday a few years ago. The bowl to the right of the picture was a gift from Brad's parents when we were dating or newly married. These pictures aren't quite up to date because we now have a flat screen tv and a small console instead of our nice big cabinet. My brother Joseph has it now and I'm a little sad because it was the first piece of furniture we bought together. But I do enjoy the new HDTV! We also don't have the coffee table in there anymore because of space issues with Will's toys. I really want to rip up the carpet and put in wood or laminate floors but alas those cost money. I would take some pictures of it today but a) my living room is a mess (see Not Me! Monday post) and b) my camera battery is caput at the moment.

Very cute!! I was looking at all of the guest bedrooms posted so far and when your pic came up I was like I know her!! I was also in nursing school at the W and pledged troubadours and then ended up backing out because I thought it was too much for me to handle. I don't know if you remember me but you can check out my blog!! Also your little boy is adorable!!

I have that same bedspread - PB - right?? It's actually on my Master Bed right now. I like how you've folded yours though ... it's been "too much" on my bed, but I couldn't figure out what it was - I think that's it!!
