Here we are at the last Monday in November already. How did that happen? Today's subject is one of my works in progress, transforming my son's room into a guest room. I've spent so much time working on things for his house and on Christmas projects, this room was sitting neglected. It is far from finished, but at least it no longer looks like a cell with only a bare bed in it. There is furniture to the right of where I stood while taking this picture. The dark thing in the lower left is the top of a TV.
The batteries in my camera are dying and I rushed these shots to make this post. Hopefully within a few months I will have this room looking as pictured in my mind and new photos will make a more interesting Blue Monday. I have one more pillow in mind, a bolster, made in the rose print.
Here is a closeup of the valance with a more accurate showing of the fabric colors.
I'd love to keep working on this room, but I need to concentrate on holiday projects before coming back here. We don't really need a guest room, and now we have two, both with twin beds in them. I am being optimistic that there are daughters-in-law and grandchildren in my future, and one day a grandchild may nap either on this bed or in a crib placed in this room.
A girl can always dream, right?
