Guest Bedroom Update

Early this year, after some health issues arose, Bradley’s grandparents moved to an assisted living apartment.  In preparation of renting their home, it had to be completely cleaned out.  I asked if we could use the spare queen-size mattress set they had in order to upgrade the size of our guest bed.  We had to purchase a new frame for it, but all of the bedding I already had was queen and full/queen, so there wasn’t much more expense than that to do the switch.

The layout of the room had irritated me since we originally set it up.  I had the bed on the left wall because that is where the switched outlet is, but I finally decided to put the bed centered under the small window and run an extension cord along the baseboard to plug in the bedside lamps.  The symmetry is so much better now.  I placed a mirror above each side table to reflect more light, though I didn’t measure well so they aren’t balanced very well.

I added some interest to the large blank wall by framing eight vintage sewing pattern envelopes.  The frames don’t necessarily match the look of the room, but they were stashed in the basement, so I pulled them out to try.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
