Week One Post, Check

So far so good on my goal of one blog a week! :) My newest and current project is redecorating our guest bedroom. We moved into our first home about a year ago, and we have slowly redone everything room by room. My "get it all done" personality has had to settle down and learn to be content. As strange as it may sound, God really has taught me to be content through the process of renovating our home.
So, here we are, a year into it, and we have completely finished the living room, guest bathroom, and our office/craft room. I will post pictures of all that later. For now, I am going to fill you in on some of my ideas for the guest bedroom. I really want it to be a "getaway" for people to come stay. I want them to feel welcome and at home. My theme for the room is shabby chic with a little bed and breakfast feel. As my blog title says, I am learning to be resourceful. So, my idea was to use a fireplace mantel as the headboard because I just knew I could find one for really inexpensive. Well, I ended up getting a HUGE fireplace mantel for FREE from a sweet lady at work. We just painted it white and it is sitting in the garage waiting to be distressed. I will post pictures of it all later, but for now, here are some pictures from Pottery Barn where I got some of my inspiration. Enjoy!

  1. I love your new blog! Very creative! :)
    Just a warning about decorating your guest room...right after I finally completed ours, little Caleb came along and then it was time to decorate a nursery. Haha! That seems to have turned into a pattern in decorating my guest rooms...
    in our current home, I finally finished the guest room downstairs and we got a call about adopting Emily. Time to redecorate again. :) Fun times!
    Can't wait to see your finsihed product!
