Guest Room - BEWARE!!

For the 3rd straight week Kelly's Korner is hosting "Show us your home" this week it happens to be Guest Room.

Here are my previous posts...
1st week- Kitchen
2nd week- Living Room

This week was going to opt out of the "Show us your home" because my guest room is also my sewing room, kids playroom and computer room and it is a not exactly guest friendly right now!! Why?? Because being creative is MESSY- HELLO!! Well for me it is at least. I would love to have a room dedicated to sewing and crafts but my home is not quite big enough!!

The reason I decided to show this is my Grandma out in Arizona (who has never seen my home) says she really has enjoyed my tour. Grandma this is for you!!! Please excuse the mess!!

This is the kid's section... (good job cleaning up kids)


Are you READY???

It is really bad...


This is the "guest area"...somewhere under all this mess is a bed. Believe it or not we have guest at least once to twice a month. I normally wait until the day of before I clean it up. Good thing my guests love me because this is not exactly a "Guest Retreat"


Yep, I know it is pretty bad and I have no plans on cleaning it up until May 22nd when my parents are coming down. To many projects to work on until then!!!

Gotta keep it real :)

What an awesome space with unlimited potential! You're so lucky!!! I can't wait to see what you do.

wow, what darling valances over your windows. I am so jealous that you have so much space. Also, I absolutely LOVE what you did with that cute little table in the post before this one. You are one talented woman. Dropping by from sits.

I like your guest room! It's cosy! Is the bed a twin or a larger bed? Your kids' play area is so bright and happy too... makes me want to sit down and play too. :)

Thanks for your kind comment about my guest room... I have guests once or twice a month as well and I always wait until the last minute to clean up also!

Get outa here... that is NOTHING compared to MINE!!! Ugh, mine I think was the worst. I am so mortified. I should have sat out but oh well. It's my first project (that I will probably start and not finish, hehe) as soon as school is out next week and the kids are in daycare! You room is really cute. I love the slanted ceiling. It reminds me of my bedroom I grew up in! :)

Oh, one more thing... Those valances are sooo stinking cute! Did you make those??

I love the space! No worries about the mess. I'm sure it could be a lot worse! When it's a room that not most see than I always leave it for last to spruce/clean up. And really how clean can a room that has kids' toys in it really stay clean!

If you think that's mess you don't ever want to be a guest at my house! My office often looks like a bomb exploded in it. I like how you have a playroom, our toys are all over the great room. That's why I never hop on board these kind of things, everyone would then know I decorate in pink plastic.
