Guest House Progress Report

Things are starting to come together at the guest house that Dana has been working on for my parents. This week I will be up here helping get it decorated. The builders will be in finishing up and getting it all cleaned up, hopefully tomorrow. Saturday we went to a local furniture store and picked out an apple green sofa, a green and white check chair with an ottoman to match, and another chair with a dark brown background, white roses and green leaves. We picked out the mattresses and frames for the two little bed rooms and a couple of night stands.

The old wood floors that we had refinished turned out pretty well. They still are dusty but we think they will be nice when they get them cleaned up.

Tomorrow we will head to the junktique shops around here for the end tables, lamps and what
ever else we can find. Target and TJ Maxx hopefully will have bedding and kitchen supplies to stock the kitchen with and finish up the bedrooms.

I'll try and post our progress as we go along. Hope you all had a good weekend. The weather here at the lake was just beautiful.


  1. I am in love with the guest house! I would love to be the first guest, but will have to settle for just looking...the white beadboard is just amazing, I love the look of all white woodwork in houses! My hubby won't let me paint out all the dark wood in our house, (a throw back to the "ressisive wood gene" men carry from the beginning of time), thank you for your lovely post! I would love for you to add me to your blogroll! Please visit me soon, Donna Lynn

  2. It's already so pretty. Love the white!
    Beautiful photos!

    I just found your lovely blog and I'll be back to read more!

  3. Oh my goodness Sue, the guest house is wonderful! I love all the wood trim and the stone fireplace apinted white. What a treat to be a guest there. The furniture you picked out sounds just perfect for the space. It must be fun getting to start from scratch and get exactly what you want, right down to the linens and dishes, all at once!
    Can't wait to se how it progresses.

  4. Hi, Sue, what a pretty guesthouse. I haven't been by in so long, just wanted to say hello! Loved the tour of the Vera Bradley store. what a gorgeous place to shop.

  6. What beautiful bones the guesthouse has! I love the fireplace in the living space as well as the re-finished wood floors. Nothing like original wood floors to give it some character.
