Tackle It Tuesday #5 - Dining Room Table & Updates

All that stuff from the Study/Guest Room
had to go somewhere. What better place for it to end up than on my dining room table. Thankfully, most of it will eventually have a home (away from this home). Thanks to Goodwill, Craig's List and Freecycle it will hopefully be gone by next week.

Shelves Syndrome Update - 2 down - 1 to go. Thank you for all of your great suggestions. I have found several things I like - who knew it would be so tough to find something less than 4" deep. I'll keep looking . . .

Check out an update on our guest room below.

Guest Room Conversion Update


Week 1

Week 2

  • Obviously, clear out the room. Everything from computer pieces to bike parts. I am told all these various parts will eventually turn into a bicycle. I made a little progress clearing things out but still have some work to do.
Still clearing out . . .
  • Order window coverings. I ordered 3 of these from Target.
  • Order bedding. I ordered this organic duvet and pillows for the bed. I also order this blanket. I have a thing for pillows: I ordered this one in the sandlewood, this one in the khaki, this one in the ivory, and this organic one. Told you I had a thing for pillows. Can you tell I am going for a natural/neutral look with this room.
  • Order lamps. I decided to re-purpose lamps from another room so no need to order new ones. Never mind, I picked one up at Pier 1 for less than $30.
  • Install window treatments.Two out of Three hung ain't bad!
  • Buy comforter for duvet cover.
  • Buy mattress - Bob is doing this tomorrow
  • Come up with something for the walls. I found something I love - a little tribute to my husband. I figured if I won't let him have the real thing stored in here . . . .
