Desperately needing extra Bed



Visitors are coming, we desperately need another bed. Let's clean out the garage!




Now hurriedly paint the bare walls and stamp (images cut from old computer mouse pads) a garland over where the bed is going to be. That takes care of the headboard.



Now look for anything that hasn't been used in years, anything you can find in the basement. Cover rickety tables with pretty fabrics, add a few schatzkies, fresh flowers and a couple of old lamps and scatter a few rugs on the bare cement floor. Ignore anything utilitarian.


Everyone loved it, were fighting over who was going to sleep in the garage and who was going to sleep in the guest quarters. My sister-in-law won out.

  8. Hi Francesca and greetings to Italy, it's been a few months since we were in Italy. I miss not walking along the little side streets.

    You would be surprised what treasures you have. Mass a whole bunch of things together and add a few fresh flowers and voila!, magic.

    The garland is so easy to paint. Tack a string between two points. Loop it in the shape of a garland and paint away.

  12. Oh goodness! You made SUCH an adorable bedroom in that garage!

    I'm working on doing the same thing in my basement this week - - - only I don't OWN the space, so not sure I can make mine so beautiful!

    But I did see some GREAT runner rug ideas that I now plan to STEAL from you.

  15. Hi Keetha, Good luck with your "new bedroom". Fabrics and rugs and a few flowers cover a multitude of sins, don't they.

  16. Dear Chari, You get the old world feel when you use whatever you have left over. But as I have mentioned before, just ignore the not so pretty areas and cover the rest.
