Home Tour Week 4: Secondary Bedroom(s) + Office
<a href=""><img src="" border="0" alt="" /></a>

This week I'm showing you my office and guest room, which are one in the same.  Honestly, I never use my desk because I have an ibook so I'm always on my couch or in bed using it.

This room is basically occupied by my mamma bear when she visits from NC or my neph, Reese.  The aftermath of babysitting on Saturday:

All cleaned up.
This bedding is my college bedding. I love the shabby chic look and pink and green are my favorite colors.  I need a headboard still and there are a ton of antiques I want to get for this room.   
So please be aware that this is still a work in progress.
Bedding from Bed Bath and Beyond.
Curtain made by my Mom. 
Hand painted mirror from Tuesday Mormings.
Lamp from Hobby Lobby.
Side table IKEA.

Desk and Chair from Ikea.
White desk storage from Wal-Mart on clearance.
Mason jar to hold my pens and pencils.

Framed print and painted the frame creme white.
Bottom shelf is Reese's books and animals.
The rest of the shelves are books, cooking books, picture albums & frames, etc.  
You can read more about the bookshelves here: My Bookshelf Re-do

So that pretty much covers my plain and boring guest room + office.  Nothing to write home to Mom about, I know.  I need to get to working on this room one of these days.

Now it's your turn to show off your guest room, your kids room, your office.  Just link up and show us one or the other or both!  There are no rules around here.

We'll call this the SECONDARY BEDROOM(s) and OFFICE POST.  k!?

Would love it if you ladies will let us peek into your homes too.  Link, Link, LINK-UP!

[Next week is Dining Room & Kitchen for week 5 and then to close off the series, 
we'll show Closets, Cabinets & Laundry Room in week 6.]

  1. ugh my lazy bum needs to make a link-up so please expect an email later today.

    Also... I was really hoping the caption under the one pic would have listed "My College Degree b**ches!"

    I love the shabby chic/ toy mess too ; )


  2. Such a cute room. I love the print over the bed and the bookcase.

  3. I bet Reese is in heaven!!! You will puke when you see my setup I am currently living/hoarding in. I wish I had your decorating skills!!!!

  4. It looks great! I love that you have a space for Reese! I love your apartment! You did such a great job designing it! :)

  5. GIRL. shabby chic is my passion! My bedroom is STILL shabby chic pink and green and antique! AHHH. weird. We should probably just move in together.

  6. Ha, I like what Rissy said, "My College Degree b**ches!" I can't wait to get mine, I need a pretty frame.

    When my nephews come over, my "office room" is their play room, little toy cars every where...Love the bookshelf. I need to go read that post.

  7. I was pretty much scarred for life when one of my college roommates was talking to her mom about using her bedspread in her house when she moved home and her mom said "but what about the cum stains?""

    I think its adorable that Reese has his own shelf :) SO SO cute auntie! he is one lucky kid

    I need to get on this and do a home tour! i love this !


  8. i love seeing a sneak peek of my room before i arrive in august. have i mentioned i can't wait?! it's so cute! unfortch if you ever came to stay with me before september then you'd either a) have to share a bed with me or b) have to sleep on the couch. i've heard both are very comfy. ;)

  9. Linds!

    I love the framed bike picture. I'll send you a pic of my room once it is cleaned up.

    Love your blog and still impressed by it always! :)


  10. Woohoo! So THAT will be my room? Perfection. I like. Love the mess Reese made. Kids and messes go together like me and alcohol.

    I sucked big time and didn't link :( Main reason is because we DON'T have a guest room. Isn't that horrible? seriously, no guest room. And I already showed my office/desk area, however I am SUPER excited to do the kitchen next week. Loves ya TONS.

  11. Dude, you are SO lucky to have an extra room. That's awesome. I hate ridiculously priced LA rent :(

  12. I love it! It's so cute. I really like the bed spread, too!

  13. you have a an office/spare bedroom? you're like a real adult! when people come to visit me they have to sleep on the couch....unless i like them they can share the bed ;) and my "office" is technically the far right cushion of my couch. i like a cozy space.

    ps - reesey is SOOOO cute!

  14. Lovin the shabby chic look and the kid toys- such a good auntie! :) We don't have a guest room, but I will try and take pics of the den.. hopefully it's clean!

  15. Can I tell you how much I love the way you decorate?! I might have to steal the shabby chic idea for my next guest room! Love love it.

    Also, I didn't know you went to Texas Tech. My soon to be cousin-in-law (is that even a legit relation?) graduated from there with her BS!!! HA!

    Love ya!

  16. a guest room! i am jealous!! i am so badly obsessed with shabby chic and girly decorating so umm this room was right up my alley!!

  17. Well I don't have an office or a guest room haha :D So lucky you ;)
