Show Us Your Life: Guest Room

This week's stop on the home tours at Kelly's Korner is the guest room. Our guest room was one room in the house that we decided to do something a little different with the paint color, and decided on an olive/army green color. However, it turned out much differently than it looked on the color deck. But it has grown on us, and now we really like it! Here is the view from the door.
The bird print is from Hobby Lobby, as is the number 8 (our wedding date) covered in some scrapbook paper. And don't you just LOVE the print of Phillipians 4:8?! Libby from The Bonjour Family designed it & is sharing it as a free download. Go check it out...plus check out all of her great blog tutorials - super helpful! Love her blog...thanks Libby. :)
This was our bedroom furniture when we lived in Waco. I still really like it, but we'll probably sell it eventually.
I had a hard time finding something to go over the bed, so I ended up making this for less than $10! I will post a tutorial next Wednesday...it's so easy, and more importantly - cheap.  :)
Here is the view looking back towards the door (the green looks yellower here than it really is because of the glare from the sun.)

Thanks for stopping by...have a great weekend! :)
