4 years, 11 months.
Now that we’ve lived in our new house nearly 8 months, there’s not much new material to say about it other than we really enjoy our new lifestyle in the cul-de-sac.
But this weekend, our family checked out the store At Home as we were killing time, waiting for my car window to be repaired on my Honda Element.
We discovered a beautiful, sea foam colored, New England style dresser.
It seemed to be the perfect addition to our guest room, so we brought it home in the back of my Element. (Needless to say, we did pay for it first!)
Now that it’s in our guest room, it looks even better than I could have imagined.
We are purposely trying to keep the theme of our guest room neutral. We don’t want it looking too feminine or too masculine. But we want it to be fun and inviting.
The color blue of the dresser is muted enough to where I feel it’s not explicitly masculine.
Right above the dresser is a bird cage decoration that matches our gender neutral theme very well. And we may end up painting that part of the wall later on as an accent.
Then, across the room on one side of the bed is a small matching nightstand and clock. On the other side of the bed is the tree branch decal that Aunt Dana and I put up.
Our guest room has only been used a few times. It’s the one room of the house that we virtually never have a reason to walk in to. I actually tend to forget it exists.
So it’s been a lower priority to finish furnishing.
But now with our cool new dresser, the room is starting to feel complete for any new guests who may be stopping by in the future.
