Shiplap Wall In The Mountain Cottage Attic Bedroom

The wall is finally finished in the attic bedroom at our mountain cottage!
No more having to stack pillows 4 deep just so we don't bang our head on the angled ceiling when sitting up in bed.
The vertical shiplap wall adds a nice design feature and the vertical boards hide the fact that the boards are actually removable panels hiding a extra storage space behind.

Here's how the wall looked before.  It took 4 pillows (more for Mr. DIY) so that we wouldn't hit our head on the angled ceiling. With 4 or more pillows at the head of the bed put our feet almost at the end of our queen bed.

If you look really close, you can see the removable panels.

There are separate, removable panels all across the wall. There's a removable panel to the right and left of the bed. 
The panel is between the arrows.

The funny thing is, even though the wall uses up an extra foot of floor space, it doesn't make the room feel smaller.

 Will be doing a "how we built it" post on the faux wall in the attic bedroom soon. 


 Again, here's how it looked before:

So glad this project is finished. Now if I can ever get to making the window treatments! 


I'm currently in the middle of planning and making decorations for our granddaughter's first birthday party. 
Can you believe it's been a whole year already? 

The whole crew is flying out for Thanksgiving and the Saturday after we'll be having a party!

Will share some pics after. 


Thanks for stopping by.

The Summer Ends Guest Room

I know today is the first day of Fall, but it still feels like late summer. The days are warm with low humidity and mornings and nights are cool. 
The next month are so is perfect weather, just like the end of Winter and the beginning of Spring. 
It's just the right time to get the house ready to transition into Fall....

I love our guest room that overlooks the side and backyard. 
It's not too big and it's not too small. 
It has a large closet. 
The windows are in the corner and light comes in from 2 sides of the house. 
and it has the pretty curvy plank headboard that Mr. DIY made. 
This was our daughter Jenny's room when she lived with us and she picked out the paint, which is pretty and relaxing. 
The whole room feels comfortable.

I love the curtains too.

I recently found the white comforter at TJMaxx.com. I wasn't sure if I was going to keep it, but I think I will.

I love the textured design. Plus it's soft. 
The textured design reminds me of bedspreads from when I was a child. 
You might call it vintage.

The bed is really comfy. The mattress has a gel foam topper on it and it's super soft.

One of these days, I'll get to painting the night table a different color. 
Sadly, so many projects have piled up in the past few years.
Yes, I said years!

I'll make an announcement on my other blog soon with an update about why, but I'm not quite ready to do that just yet. 
I don't want to jinx it.

Thanks for stopping by!
