I have lots of things to show you - some new leather work, some house stuff, some farming stuff. But I wanted to show you the little progress I've made on our guest room.
This is what it looked like two weeks ago ... too bright, kinda clutter-ish style of decorating, definitely looking more like my college days than matching our house now.
This is how it looks now. Baby steps.
I also am trying to primarily use lamp light in this room because it warms the room up considerably. I took down all of the wall decor except for the shelf that is screwed in and will see what I want to put back up later. The next step will be the bedding and making the valance, which my mother-in-love so graciously offered to do!
We talked bedding for a while when we first decided to do this and we decided to just go with a white bedspread to make a cleaner look. The fabric that we are using is primarily black and brown floral with some red, yellow, and greens. Its beautiful, sorry I don't have a picture but I'll wait to show it once everything is done. So since the fabric is busy, a low key white is what we are looking for.
Low-key white is kind of hard for me to choose, though, because I've always been a deep color kind of girl... hence the green on the walls. SO... I couldn't help myself and I bought another quilt that I loooove but may be too busy with the fabric. I don't know, we'll see.
Here are the quilts I ordered.
The white one:
And the back up because choosing white is so foreign to me:
Let me know what y'all think!
Out of the fabric, we will make pillow shams, a bed skirt, a throw for the bottom of the bed, and the valance.
