This past July when my nieces came to visit we temporarily rearranged our guest room which had originally been set up with a daybed and trundle. We brought in our old iron bed to give each girl their own separate space for the week. We ended up liking it so much that we didn't want to go back to the way it had been.
I have always wanted a room with two twin beds. I remember visiting my sister-in-law many years ago and she had a guest room set up that way and I was a tiny bit jealous that Maddie got to sleep in there! I had always assumed that our guestroom was too small to accommodate this set up but it actually works great.
Maybe it isn't quite large enough but we love it and we think it's cozy which is, of course, a word we owners of small homes use a lot to make small seem more charming.
We, meaning my very talented guy, turned our old iron bed into two headboards. You can see what the iron bed looked like before here. If you look closely you will notice that the headboard on the left is shorter than the one on the right because it is actually the footboard! That adds quirkiness which is, of course, a word we owners of old homes use a lot to to make things that don't match or make sense seem more charming.
I enjoyed paying attention to the details in this room and thinking about what I would want as a guest.
I like to spoil my guests. I love to take care of people. I tend to refer to our home as the Kershner B & B but without the awkward, forced social interaction. Ok, actually there are no guarantees that you will avoid that.
A little extra storage is always nice. It's also good to be prepared for middle of the night idea jotting and candle burning.
The most important information a guest might need, aside from what time breakfast is served!
**Thank you for all of your kindness in my last post. I'm so happy we could have such an in depth conversation about our underthings! ;) I really appreciate all of the good wishes you sent my way. I plan to continue my slow and steady improvement and am celebrating the fact that we went two Sundays in a row without a hospital stay!! I'm gonna keep that streak going.
