Our spare room


Whenever I hear the phrase "spare room" I think of Anne of Green Gables and the night when Anne and Diana frightened the elderly aunt by leaping on the bed in the spare room!

We are in the process of decorating our spare room. We moved into this house nearly five years ago. The house was previously owned by a single lady who married a widower and moved into his home. The house was immaculate--not a speck of dust anywhere. We have slowly been painting and changing things to reflect our tastes since we have moved in.

A few months ago we bought a bed frame and mattress, Rob painted the room a nice shade of green, and I bought a quilt and pillow shams. Here's a picture showing the wall color and the quilt:

The project has been on hold for a while so I could figure out what to do about a window treatment. I finally decided to copy one that DD Nora had made earlier for our bathroom. Here's the valence Nora made:

I chose fabrics that were similar to those in the quilt and made this little valance:

We still need a few accessories and a dresser, but the room is slowly taking shape and will be ready for some visitors we are expecting in the next few weeks. We hope to have a comfortable place ready for them when they arrive.

Do you have any decorating projects going on this spring?
