Doing a Little in the Guest Bedroom!

 I can't believe this is the first time I've ever picked flowers and brought them into the house...see what blogging does to you. LOL

Hello everyone! How are you? I know, I’ve been gone for a week…gee it doesn’t seem that long but I’ve worked more days than usual this past week  and when I get home I’m tired plus this past week was Dancing With the Stars finale and wanted to see Hines Ward take the trophy home to Pittsburgh! Yeah Hines!!!!

Anyway I wasn’t doing a whole lot of decorating either so that put a halt to my posts but I always check out your blogs and always get inspired so much that I did paint a peg rack in the guest room that always bothered me when I passed by the door in the hallway!  I also wanted to say that I haven’t been able to leave a comment on those of you that have the drop down box on your comment section, so that’s why I haven’t been commenting on your blog lately. If what your post is about and it interests me or if I think it’s so very neat I’ll leave a comment even if your never leave one on here, that’s just the way I am and what blogging is all about, I don’t care if you have 4,000 followers or 60 I comment!
Here’s what I painted Cottage White!  As you can see it’s black and before that it was Barn Red.  See the chest of drawers? I picked up a paint chip in gray to paint it! The gray and white pillow sham I found at GW for $1.00 so I’m going to go with that color for the chest of drawers!
I’m sort of leaning towards the Winter’s Day or Going Gray, what do you think? I think the bottom one, Gray Frost would be to dark. The paint chips are from Olympic Paints at Lowe’s.
Looks so much better, I used the soft setting on my camera, lets see if I took it in another setting…
I distressed it too as you can see on the pegs! The little jar is from my son Michael and it’s from Yankee Candle Co. The shell garland is from Pat Catan’s and only cost about $3.00…love it! When I bought it I didn’t know what I was going to do with it but when I saw the peg board I knew it was made for it!
These are pictures of my mom and dad (in the upper left ) when they were about 16 or 17 and the lower one is Mr. K’s mother and aunt, I love older black and white pictures!

Michael also bought me this frame and it’s made from a torn down barn ( that’s me and the Mr. K in Boston outside of Cheer’s ) so nice and chippy!
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my post!

Your peg rack looks so much better now, I really like the white. I think the shell garland is really cute too. (I need to get one for my peg rack.) Your guest room is looking great. Have a wonderful weekend Rondell!

Not all your pics came up Rondell, but I am sure it is blogger. I do like the white, and the guest room looks so comfy and cozy. Enjoy those beautiful flowers, and do pick more!

The room is looking good, Rondell...and all your pictures came up for me. I like the gray paint..I do think the bottom one is too dark and, from the samples, it looks to me like the top one has more "yellow" tones to it...and being that your room has gold tones-I would probably go with that one. It IS light though and won't give you a lot of color. You could even try dry-brushing the gray over the white first to see how that looks.

Never picked flowers to bring in? You got a whole lotta catching up to do, girl! Don't you LOVE the way they look in your house? Hugs- Diana

such a pretty room, I like old family photos too. The strand of seashells you have draped across that cute hatrack is a great touch. Nice job :)

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Hi Rondell! Thank you for sharing your pretty guest room at my party. What a cute peg board with the shell garland. I would go with the 1st or 2nd gray on the sample.

Fate I tell ya! I found this post and I just happened to be re-doing a guest room and painted (yesterday) a similar, but more rustic hanger. I love how you placed it above the bed, I had not thought of that! Thanks for the inspiration!
