And now for my favorite room in the house, the attic guest room! The attic spans the length of the house and is split down the middle by a half wall. This layout provides the perfect set-up for a farm office on the north half (the first thing you see when you walk up the stairs) and a cozy guest room on the south half. Between the snug A-framed ceiling, the old multi-colored hardwood floor, the bright windows, and the slightly pinky peach paint color (which I matched to patch), the little girl in me immediately fell in love on our first visit to the house. I was the most excited to make over this room.
Once I found the antique bed frame (at the Brass Armadillo) and the adorable hand-painted dresser (at my parents’ house – thanks Mom!), I knew I’d found the basis for a cute and comfy getaway. And after adding a few details (most of which I already had), we successfully hosted our first guests.
