Guest room at the Log Cabin

I'm working on getting the guest room at our log cabin complete by next month. It has the view, new comfy bed, a quaint chair and a clock to tell them what time to get out (just kidding!) I want to hang another picture or two and then get a nice antique type headboard to keep with my relaxing bird/cottage theme in that bedroom. Someone told me to check out craig's list www.craigslist.com - has anyone had much luck with that?

Oh, Shelley, you fixed a guest room just for me!!! Kidding ... I've never had any experience with Craig's list. Have you tried local flea markets or antique sales?

I'm so glad you share these pics. I love that bird painting on the wall. The bedroom is so inviting and let me tell ya, I'm just going to unplug that damn alarm clock when I get there cause I'm not leaving! So there.

I'm amazed at how quickly you are getting your place together. We've been raised for over 4 years and are still working slooooowly at it. I may be a little too laid back. Don't even plan on really furnishing the place 'til Pat retires. Did you notice our living room furniture is lawn chairs?! Do love to see the progress on your place though.

Oh, yea, our son in law uses Craig's list all the time for his painting business (in Seattle). He really likes it.

Actually a 72-hor clock that counts down to zero would be appropriate. What's that saying about guests and fish again?

I love, love that chair! How big is the bed? If it's a double, the headboard should be easy to find. If it's queen or bigger, you'll probably have to settle for a reproduction if you're going for the vintage look. If it's a king, try two twins; they're usually the easiest to find!

Bobbi - bring the wine! You're right - I do need to check out the antique stores - etc.

Sandy - Glad you liked the pics!

Cassie - I still feel far behind in progress!

Joated - that kind of clock might work...

Jennifer - it's a queen - you're right that I may have to look for a reproduction!

Shelly you are one busy girl : )
Craigs list is VERY cool that is where I got the new stove at a great deal of almost half off for a stove used only 12 times !!! Here is the deal only by locally so you can see what you are paying for. I almost fell for a scam on there someone wanted us to Western Union the money....guess what stove was to be in OR they where in FL : )

I guess you will have to have another contest to see which one of us gets to stay in the guest room first.
*waving my hands, I'm over here* :)

Shellmo said...

Chris - thanks for the scoop! And I will stick locally!

Jen- Funny! I'm going to have to finish that guest room in the basement now too!
