The Last Remaining Frontier

Since our relocation in July, we have been in remodeling limbo. I have repainted, recaulked, cleaned, dissected, redecorated most every room in the house. Well, all except one. My guest room/home office/craft studio. Exactly....how am I going to get all of that into one little room? At the old house we had two extra rooms. One was guest room/office and the other was my craft studio. Well, needless to say, I have been putting off digging into that space and the room has become a catch-all for pretty much anything we don't currently know what to do with. See for yourself:



I know, I am cringing inside seeing the photos! Well, my brother and his lovely wife and two nephews are driving up for Thanksgiving. The are driving about 15 hours from Biloxi. I can hardly wait to see them and their new addition, Deagan Alexander, who has been on this planet for 5 months and Aunt Kim has not even seen the precious bundle in person!! So this weekend, I will be transforming this hot mess into a comfy, cozy sanctuary for my brother. What??? I can do it!! So not much blogging will be going on for me - or anything else for that matter. Check back for the results photos! Have a great weekend!

I feel your pain. We located last year, moved into house Nov 12, furniture arrived Nov 14, kids & grandkids arrived Nov 23 for Thanksgiving... Had to scurry and get the guest bedrooms ready. Whew... luckily I made it on time. Can't wait to see your results!

We're remodeling too, but unfortunately, we are not moving quite as fast as you.

Good luck on that room! I know I would have no idea where to start.

We are in the middle of remodeling also...it's going much slower here. I just wish it would be done already.

My kids took some random photos of the house the other day, and I cringed at the messiness in them. It's a good way to realize what you need to clean or organize!! lol Good luck with yours!

That is quite a task you have ahead of you. Can't wait to see the results. I'm sure it will look great!

It is SO easy to do that to a space, isn't it? That's how our basement was last winter. Looking forward to seeing it!
