I finally have this room all put back together and am able to show (and walk through) it.
And here is the part of the room that you have not seen yet.
This doorway leads out into the half story section of our upstairs, which is also where the stairs to get up here are.
I love hooks and peg rails and a guest room is the perfect place for them because guests always have lots of things to hang. Staying somewhere that doesn't have anyplace to hang your things is one of my biggest pet peeves!
The dresser was part of a bedroom set that I bought at the thrift store when I was furnishing our very first apartment on very little money, I think the whole set cost less than $30. I have painted it many colors since it's been ours and even thought about getting rid of it a couple of times. However, once I painted it it's current color, Glidden's "Whispering Wheat" I liked it again.
The chair came free with a $5 table I just bought last week at an estate sale, I hit the mother load that day, can't wait to show you all I got.
The soap box with wheels on the floor was also free at an estate sale as long as I took all the items it contained. It is one of my all time favorite finds.
And we are making slow but steady progress on the kitchen/"back room" reno. This past weekend Neal and my dad jacked up the house and took out all of the cinder block that was no longer doing its job.
Neal has been spending the last couple of days relaying the cinder block but we can't do much else until the mortar dries, not to mention it won't stop raining!
