Our back room, or as we have lovingly called it in the past – Our Parlor, Toy Room, Kid’s Room, Christmas Tree Room, Spare Room, and probably a whole lot more that I just can’t think of right now has got another new name.
We now have an official ‘Guest Bedroom’ SCORE!
When we’ve remodeled the house we set it up so that all the doors are the standard 36 inches along with a walk in shower and a room downstairs for when we get to where we don’t want to go to a bedroom upstairs anymore or if some unlucky chance that someone broke a bone or something. . You know… be prepared for the worst! But if none of that happened, it was a good transition room for when we didn’t want to go upstairs anymore. You know – got too lazy or old 🙂
So with the kids coming home to visit us on and off and company coming this weekend, it was time to give the room another new name and function.
And that’s how the guest room was born.
You know those projects when you just hate to start them and then once you’re in the middle of it, it wasn’t so bad? Yea, I know it doesn’t happen too often but when it does it really takes you by surprise right?
Well that’s what happened to this project. After a phone call to give the sleeper sofa to a niece, and moving the kids bed downstairs – well that was it. I know a shock right? I’m thinking that we should have done this a couple of years ago.
The funny thing is that I have to admit that I purposely walk into the room to check it out. Now I don’t know if I think it’s going to change or what – but I do know that I end up leaving smiling to myself. I guess it’s one of those times that people say the simple things in life are the best.
