Second Guest Room

So, this is the second biggest bedroom upstairs, where Mike had his office but then wanted to move to the smallest room. The window here faces the front of the house, over-looking the driveway. You can see the river when the trees lose their leaves but the view in the smallest room is beautiful a year long as it looks up the hillside with all the huge rocks and ferns.

Anyway, this room is big and can handle color. We bought a bedroom set off of Craig's list that we both thought would make a wonderful guest room. It had presence, if you know what I mean. I never in my life thought I would ever choose any form of orange to paint a wall but this was a color I was moved to get. It is a burnt orange or sunset orange and warm and rich. The adjacent walls will be painted a toasty mocha to compliment the warmth.
This is my daughter, Dori, and her husband, James, making it look easy. I painted too, I just had to stop and take pictures!

Two coats later, we moved in the furniture. Mike hung a picture of "Sleeping Beauty" that we made the frame for a few years ago. I put the new mattress pad and sheets on, added the pillows and...

Voila! A lovely room to share with our guests.

We still have a few things to add. The rest of the bedding, a nice quilt and I'm looking for a vanity to match this set and a sitting chair and maybe a couple more pictures will finish it perfectly.
