Back in December I meant to post pictures on here for my Mom to see how we redecorated our "maid's quarters" into a guest room. Since I waited so long, it is now quite a saga, stretching back into November when we visited Lizelle, our wonderful scheduler person.
Lizelle is very artistic, and painting is her chief relaxer. She was working on this epic painting, under her skylight which accounts for the stripes.
Art is inspiring! Lizelle is one of the people who has encouraged Evangel's art. She was working on this rendition of my parents' camp around that time, and it became a beautiful Christmas present for me.
I was particularly inspired by Lizelle's curtains. Our guest room is white on all 4 walls and the ceiling, so I wanted to put burnt orange curtains to get a glow in the tiny room.
When we got some time at home while Paul couldn't be preaching in any schools, we attacked that guest room. We peeled off old paint, and painted everything white again. We hung the glowing curtains. James and Gloria loaned us a bed that had been given to them. I think the bed is what really gives the room character.
