I can hardly contain my excitement! One of my dearest and most favorite girlfriends is flying in from chilly and snowy Boston tomorrow afternoon. She's here for a few short days but we'll manage to pack in tons of fun. Even better, I'll be able to celebrate my birthday with my bestie! I'll be turning
thirty-six twenty-nine for the 8th time on Wednesday. The wine closet is stocked and I'm ready to laugh with Kara till our stomachs hurt.
In preparation for a few visitors this Spring, we recently moved the guest bedroom into the old TV Den freeing up the old guest room for an office/playroom. Both rooms are far from complete since most of my decorating attention has been focused on the master renovation. But I figured I'd share the guest room in it's current state.
The list of "To-Do's" for this room is quite lengthy. To name a few - paint walls a creamy coffee color, re-finish end tables, add headboard, add fabric window treatments, style with new accessories... a list like this gives my husband heart palpitations.
I'd love to attempt a DIY upholstered headboard. My girl Jennifer over at The Chronicles of Home has mad skills in the furniture making department - check out this headboard she made using a quilt! Her amazing DIY projects are endless - she's so talented!

A nice feature of moving the guest room to this location is the direct access to the downstairs bathroom and a good sized walk-in closet with plenty of storage room for our guests to unpack and hide away bulky suitcases. I also have a few plans for the closet - the "To-Do's" are on The List!
This is the adjoining bathroom.
And a few special Spring touches for our guests. A potted yellow Hyacinth and a Honeysuckle candle from Anthropology (an early birthday gift from my brother and SIL). This candle embodies the scent of Spring - so florally, fresh and clean.
Well, I'm off to get a few more things ready for Kara's visit. Hope you enjoyed the tour!
