It’s not done yet, but it’s getting there

The guest room has been a work in progress since we moved in in April 2014. And it still is. But, I made significant progress yesterday!

Here’s a before picture.

This duvet comforter is many moons old, but I don’t hate it. Still, I wanted to go dramatically different. I was inspired by an Instagram pic I saw and then I added a few tricks of my own. And so far, we have this.

The deer are stenciled on the wall in this stencil and using this gold paint. The lampshades aren’t photographing well, but they are gold sequined fabric that is glued on to an earlier version of these, which had seen better days. A few weeks ago, I had seen a beautiful bronze sequined lampshade at HomeGoods that I almost fell over myself to buy, but they had only one so I went home empty-handed that day. Instead, I bought fabric and spent a lot of time with some old glue and binder clips. Hence, this:

Now, next up is to install the second Roman shade, paint the {new} bookshelves – courtesy of T&S! – and get to work on the board and batten. And then when we hang some pics, I think we can call this room finished!

    It’s all so beautiful. I live far enough away to be an overnight guest, don’t I?

Sleep in safety. Sleep without stress. Sleep without worry. Things children all over the world should be able to do. But those kids who have set foot on this soil after bearing untold abuses and have asked for asylum from us—literally begged us for help, throwing themselves on our mercy—have been tossed aside and, I imagine, can’t sleep. . . . They’ve been treated not only like they’ve done something wrong (they haven’t), but treated in a way we don’t—or shouldn’t—treat any child in this country. We don’t put children in cages. We don’t make children sleep on floors. We don’t separate them from their families. In fact, when these things happen to children, we usually file criminal charges against the perpetrators. This must stop. . . . #stopthemadness #reunitefamilies #asylumseekers #choosekindness #hurryupmueller
My love. She loves to sleep on the floor. I swear: she has a bed. We have several. Couches too! But I get to see her like this every night and we both get to feel so safe . . . On the other hand, there are those who can’t feel safe at night bc of our country’s ridiculous policy. The #GOP has decided that the world’s current horrors weren’t enough that they needed to up the ante and add their own voice to the unending madness. And they did . . . Separating asylum-seeking mothers and fathers from their children. That’s the #GOPlegacy. Does it get more horrific?! People fleeing horrendous abuses, throwing themselves on our mercy and, instead of kindness, we shower them with incivility, treating them as criminals, stealing their children and tossing them in detention. Where is your soul, #GOP?! . . . #resist #impeachmentyesterday #impeachmentnow #bluewave #votethemout #noexcuse
