The Room is Done!

Filed under: decorating — by michellew @ 10:57 am


Our mostly guest room, somewhat baby room is finished!  (minus a door being hung)  I’m so glad to have checked this huge project off of the list.  Bob worked his tail off painting and hanging that nice ceiling fan.  He crawled in the super tiny crawl space under the room and the small spot above the room to run the electrical. I’m so proud that he can do that kind of stuff and that its turned out so great!  I shopped all around trying to find an inexpensive comforter with bed skirt and shams that I liked and got a bit frustrated.  Until I found this one!  I got it in the clearance section at Kohls for 19 bucks for the set (most others I found were between 75 and 125)!  I was shocked and excited and so thankful.  Then I found the curtains at Big Lots for 5 bucks a panel.  I mean they are an exact match to the color of the comforter.  Incredible!  I bought two panels and hemmed them to make 4 short panels for those small windows.  If you ever need unlined curtains you must check out big lots, you can’t beat the price.  I was so thrilled with all my bargain finds for this room, it makes it even better when you can find something you really like for cheap!  Oh and check out the other pictures of the completed room.



  1. Congrats, Bob & Shell, it looks great. Dad T

  5. Wow, looks great! Way to go Michelle with the bargains. Can’t wait to stay in there. So glad you were able to get a fan up. I’m so proud of Bob that he was able to get into those small spaces to get that done. That’s something his father wouldn’t be able to do!!! See you soon.
