Tammy is a good friend of mine from Amarillo. She moved to Austin a few years before I did and is doing a wonderful job as CEO of Make-A-Wish here. Shortly after I started my new job, she had this to say. "Sandra, you know how in Amarillo, out-of-town friends and relatives would say they'd come visit but never would?" I agreed. She then said, "In Austin, people will tell you they'll come visit, and they do." She was so right!
As you know, we are turning our front room into a guest room, anxiously awaiting the arrival of dear friend, Lisa, in October. Today's the day, hubby, son and I will be moving the behemoth of a computer armoire into our media room. I sure hope no one ruptures anything. Like a disc or a hernia. LOL
I've decided to give up the Ralph Lauren Guinevere in favor of a new look.
What do you think? I wouldn't have even known about it if I hadn't received a Linen Source catalog a few weeks ago. The walls are already a light, beigy neutral, which can stay. I may paint the trim black, but we'll see. See this little desk?
I've already painted it black, and it will stand in as a bedside table.
I think the gate headboard I used in Amarillo will work great, too.
This armoire used to be in our Amarillo master, too. It housed a TV, but we'll rework it to hold hanging clothes.
This little dresser will be the other bedside table.
The room needs doors, and to save on space, I think we're just going to install sliding panel doors like you'd normally see on a closet. We considered French doors but feel they'll swing out too far.
What do you think? Is this a room you'd like to stay in?
