The East Guest Room

 For our first reveal, I'm sharing one of our guest rooms - aka the 'good' guest room (this means our kids will squabble over who gets this room! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Further proof that sibling rivalry never goes away).  It's a nice sized room with views of two lighthouses - the famous Portland Head Light and Ram Island Light.  

This room was just one part of the original primary suite.  It was a very large room, probably too big, so we cut it in half.   This room is the right hand side of the photo below.

This side had a cedar closet built in as well as a closet over one of the front windows (Why????).  We opened all of that up to create this bedroom (as well as a hall bathroom next door).   It involved moving the triple window to the right and eliminating the closet to expose the window.  The result is a bright, light filled room all day.

Do you notice what's missing?  Window treatments!  I'm temporarily using them in the living room, until I can get around to making new ones.  Then this room will look more complete.

One of the things I love the most about this room?  The fir door that I stripped down to its original finish.  Doesn't that pop of natural wood look great in this room?  Now I just have to finish the other 15 doors!

In the meantime, this is the door to the room ๐Ÿ˜‚.  My painter wanted to make sure he didn't paint the side that would get stripped!

This room has amazing views - of the Portland Head Light and Ram Island Light

It feels good to have a room sort of finished.  Now I just need to keep working on the rest of the house!

  1. wow what a difference! Love how you reworked the space. Lucky guests!

  2. After so long, it must be wonderful to have finished rooms with furniture in them. It looks just right and I look forward to seeing more!
