Maria's Bedroom

Dear friends, 
My mom came from Brazil and brought our dear friend, Maria, with her. Maria knows my son since he was a baby and she also came to see his High School Graduation. Such a special guest deserved her very own bedroom, of course! 
So I transformed my office into a bedroom for her. They arrived today and are fast asleep in their fresh and fluffy beds! You can see the update in my mom's bedroom here (yes, I painted that bed!).  
Maria's bed!

My husband could not cut the wall to get a sample of the paint to have it matched. SO I had to wing it... and I was OFF, LOL! This morning I made a flower out of music sheet paper and put on top of the "boo-boo" you see by the mirror. I am going to make two more flowers and take a picture to show you.

As soon as I saw this bed, I fell in love...
I will have to keep it... ( I took this picture before washing the bedding sheets, so they are all wrinkled)
When my mom saw this mirror, she said: isn't that MY MIRROR... (that's WHY I PAINTED HER BED, I knew she would be jealous, LOL!) I said, NO, that's not your mirror...
Adorable bedding sheets... 
 I had to keep the printer and the computer there.
 On the left is the cabinet I keep all my office stuff!
Unfortunately I will have to take this dresser out 
and replace it with my desk. But I love this dresser, too!
Gerbera Daisies and a candle...
 A little gift box with soap, socks and a hand cream...
The milk glass is to keep her jewellery...
She already unpacked and put jewellery in it!
I normally keep ALL my purses on this hanger! 
I cleaned up for Maria!
She got beautiful new towels. More on the stool later...
And here is the bed again!!! 
Don't you want to be my guest, too??
I am sharing this bedroom at:

  4. Hi Claudine....I really love what you did with your guest's room and see the finished look on the bed, I remember I saw it when you were just starting to paint it, it turned out fabulous!....I also love the dresser, just the way it is, but I suppose it would look beautiful if you paint it as well, what do you plan on doing with it? the way I would like to follow you as well on your blog, where do I do that?....Rosa Amelia (from Peru).
