show us where you live friday.. wahoo!

I'm super excited because today on Kelly's little tour of homes is the guest bedroom. And I lurve my guest room. Although before I let you in this room, I'm gonna have to let you in on a little secret; the Imperfect household is teeming with a little disease called A.D.D. We are diligently working on house improvements. However, unlike most people we seem to lack some sticktoitofness. Meaning, we can't finish one room before we have to move on to another. We'll be almost done with a room (ie: the guest room), but then we'll get bored and start painting another. Seriously, a sickness. But we're working on it!! So here's our unfinished guest room..

Looking into the room from the hallway. Yes, that's the infamous white quilt. The one every animal in this house has tried to take out. She is still alive and kicking!

I had an exact image of what I wanted for this room in my head. When I first told Mr. Perfect that I wanted gray walls, he flat refused. A couple weeks later, I came home and him and our friend Joe had painted them. Funny story. Mr. Perfect went to Home Depot (our 2nd home) and picked out "gray" paint. He came home and he and Joe got to work painting. All of a sudden the Mr. noticed that Joe was just standing in the middle of the room staring at the wall. "What's the deal?" he asked. Joe just looked at him and busted out laughing. "These walls are purple dude" Joe told him between laughter. So Mr. Perfect takes a look around and had to agree; they sure did look purple. Now there's still blueish carpet in that room that we haven't ripped up yet, so Mr. Perfect decides it's the blue tint from the carpet making the "gray" walls appear "purple". Joe tells him whatever makes him sleep at nite, but that he won't be there when I get home. A couple hours later I get home from work, walk into the room where the Mr. is still painting, and my jaw dropped. "Mr. Perfect! They're purple!!" I was in shock. He gave me his speech on the tint from the carpet and how it really is gray. I love that man, but those walls kind of are purple!! Hey, at least it looks good right?!?

From the far wall looking across the bed at the dresser. The dresser is actually my old bedroom suit from high school. I wish I had before photos, but oh well. We dismantled the mirror that was attached to the top and sanded down the cherry finish and repainted it. The bed is actually part of the same set. That's the mirror behind the dresser that we took off the top part. Mr. Perfect is going to build a black frame for it and it will go back above the dresser.

The bed. I love my red pillows. I kind of just love red in case you somehow missed that!

The window. If you notice we still need to do the baseboards. That is actually driving me crazy. It's all I can see. But Mr. Perfect says he's not doing baseboards until every room is painted and he can do them all at once... I might go crazy before then.

Close up of the dresser. Love the hardware courtesy of my love- the Home Depot.

The Mister's closet. Yes, it's in the guest room. Poor soul.

We took some pictures around the downtown area in our town that we turned black and white are are going to blow up and put in frames above the bed. There will be two up there. I need some red curtains for the windows and to get the mirror up and the carpet out and we will have one room complete. Oh wait.. I forgot about those stupid baseboards!!!
