New Art in the Guest Room

Friday, August 8, 2014

Hello and good Friday to you!

Have you ever heard how hard it is to get a house ready to sell?

Well, I'm here to tell you... it's hard.  For weeks, it seems like there was one project after another that needed to be completed before our house could be put on the market.

Basement stairs finished?  Check.  Outside door trim painted?  Check.  Garage doors caulked?  Check. Master shower scrubbed top to bottom?  Check.  Garage organized?  Check.  And on and on the list went.

One of the little tasks on the to-do was putting something on this blank wall in the guest room.  It has a little spot that was patched, but since we haven't painted this room since we moved in, we didn't have any paint to touch up the patched spot.  So we did what any normal people would do and covered it with art.

Of course, I didn't want to spend any money on this project so I used stuff we already had on hand.  The frames have all lived many lives in our house, but are now sporting pages out of a 2006 Paris calendar.  Yes, I've been saving it that long.  See!  I knew it would come in handy some day.  The Thomas Kincaid Beauty & the Beast art canvas was purchased at Disney World a couple years ago.

I put my favorite vintage fan and non-vintage telephone (from Target, although it broke after only a month of use, so now it's purely decorative) on top of the Craigslist dresser and called it a day.  I think it's an improvement over staring at an empty wall from the guest bed, don't you?

Now if only someone would make an offer...
