Ready for the inlaws

Guest room before:

Guest room today:
There's more to be done. We still need artwork on the walls and once I get a nice chair I'll show you the other side of the room. There's a very hideous temporary chair in there now. But, it's done enough to accommodate guests pretty comfortably. It's way nicer than the master right now.
By the way, does anyone know how to put a duvet into a duvet cover? This is how we (well, Mark) did it:

Seriously! There has to be an easier way. Share your wisdom so we don't have this every time we wash that thing.
Happy weekend!


  1. I like the way Mark is doing it :). There is an easier way, if you want I can help with anything. The house is looking good.

  2. Thanks Kerri! Yes, you'll have to come over and give me a lesson!

  3. heh. awesome. what a homey, comfortable looking room!

    the duvet is a little like the two-man version of putting on tights...with duvet cover turned inside out, grab the cover corner and the duvet corner in the same hand, then pull down from there, turning the duvet cover right-side-out in the process. voila!

    ...actually that probably made almost no sense at all.

  4. This looks so great! I have to say, we gave up on duvets, I could never get them to look the way I wanted and they were a pain to put together. =) Now, we use quilts in all the bedroom.

  5. Duvets are a pain the the butt. Of course, every bed linen I ever fall in love with only comes in duvet-form. Needless to say, it doesn't get washed *quite* as often as it should :). Oh and you've got phenomenal taste in paint colors, the room looks great!
