Our Guest Room

before


after

All of the exterior walls in the basement were lovely pressed conrete to look like brick. Yuck. So after scraping the ceiling and drywalling over the concrete walls, this room just needed paint, baseboards, carpet and nice furniture. We are still waiting on shutters for the window. I figured this was one view that could stand being covered up.

We usually refer to this room as Grandma and Pa's room, since they are mostly likely the only guests we will have (although more are welcome!). After I finished vacuuming it today, Mabel asked me when Grandma and Pa are going to come "live in their room forever." As soon as she said it, she got really embarrassed and said she wasn't going to talk anymore. I think she realized (sadly) that they weren't ever going to live with us forever. Obviously, we are excited for their visits.
