A Guest Room

We have been busy the last couple of months. TRH (The Retired Husband) has been making bedroom  furniture from palettes.  And I have been busy piling up all the stuff ready for styling the newly renovated guest bedroom. We did that today. Still a few finishing touches left – but it is ready for the first guest!

All the artwork on the walls are my fluid paintings.

The furniture (except for the little stool under the dressing table) has been made by TRH.
Currently he is finishing off a valet chair.

The crocheted bedspread was painstakingly made by me many decades ago whilst working night duty.

It is a vintage popcorn pattern. Over five years I made all the individual pieces at work and then joined them together at home as it got too big and heavy to cart around to and from work. It was not till two months ago that I got around to completing the edging.

I decided to make a few small popcorn doileys to match the bedspread.

We’re pretty happy with the results so far.

    1. Thanks Jane. We have two stools – one in our bedroom. I am really pleased with this new renovated guest room. Markku finished the valet chair just a couple of days ago and is now making bedside lamps. nearly there.
