Guest Rooms ' Reveal Part I '

Hello sweet friends !

I hope you all had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving 2016.

Finally I got to "Reveal the Guest Rooms; Part 1" for now, as there would be to much pictures to bore you with. Therefore, Part II of the Reveal will be the "Bathroom and Walking Closet" from this kind of 'suit' we had done for our girls Alexandra and Sofia when they lived at home.

Although there are a couple of things 'missing here yet,' such as some pictures on the wall and specially, my Mil's antique mirror and bed headboard that was hers when she was young.

Meanwhile, our DD Sofia came to 'inaugurate' it, two weeks ago with her family and didn't recognize her old room... so cute ! 

These two bedrooms are separated with a half wall for our daughters, before Sofia left when she got married and Alexandra right after, to be on her own and now married as well, mother of our latest grand-girl, baby Maxima
Alexandra and her family will be coming to spend Christmas with us and will be staying here, in the new rooms too.

Ok, that said ! Here is the reveal with some touches of Christmas as well.

This side of the rooms was my daughter Alexandra's domain, lol..
I placed the queen size bed here and for the time been it's without the antique mirror on the wall and the antique 'brass and mother of pearl' headboard that was my Mil's, which I will have it placed when someone helps me, hehe

We replaced the wall to wall carpeting with wooden floors and we love it !

The girls had great built-ins in their two rooms for books and desk areas, now they're ALL mine, lol..

I am enjoying ALL the storage space I have just for me now... and believe me, every space is full, or at least, not empty !

All this wall fixture cabinets, or built ins, where full with books and encyclopedias I had to give away. No use for them anymore with Internet !

We painted all these fixtures off-white as the rooms.

The before pics are at the end of this post, so NOT to scare you...hahaha..

A little fridge you see where the chair was for Alex's desk; a friend of ours gave us as a gift three years ago, so now when my grandgirls Victoria and Cayetana were here I stored chocolate bars and some sodas for them and they commented that it was like 'hotel amenities'...hehehee

In front of the bed, at your left again, there's another built-in cabinet that was filled with books and magazines and girls things, even some Barbie dolls still, etc.

The door you see next to the cabinet is of the 'walking closet'... that will be Reveal 2, along with the bathroom, which is my fav.

From here you can see Sofia's side separated by a half wall, this way the girls had they're privacy but were together at the same token.

This side of the room is not so wide, therefore, I placed a twin bed here for the grand-girls. I also want to buy next, a sofa-bed, as the 'new-girls' are growing fast.

More pretty and ample storage for me, lol..

All the way by the window, I want to place a sofa bed for more guests.

You are all welcome to come and visit me, I'd love to have you !

Sofia also had book shelves and a desk for her homework and home studies in her side of her room, as well.

This picture gives you an idea how we separated the two rooms with a half wall for our own daughters, but also kept each others side private.

The window treatment was also replaced from draperies to Hunter Douglas shades.
Last year I 'recycled' the chintz from the curtains into a lovely 'tablecloth' some of you might remember.

This is my desk corner. I'm so happy to have this little nook to work and enjoy just for me in the new room. 

I almost forgot to take pics of the before look, but here is just how we cleared it for the reno; still, I hated it !


I leave you with my collection of Oriental teapots for the "Guest Rooms Reveal Part I."
Next, for the "Reveal Part II" I will share the bathroom and walking closet, which I'm totally loving !

Thank you for your kind comments dear friends, you always make my day!
