guest house before pics

One of my favorite parts of our new house is the guest quarters.  A one bedroom, one bath condo with full kitchen, laundry and one car garage.  It shares a wall with our garage, but has a separate entrance and utilities.  Perfect for guests, grandparents, or even renters!


The walk up to the front door of the guest house.

Kitchen - dated pink white washed cabinets and RED walls!

This is a little breakfast nook/office area.  Perfect for a craft room!!

Living room and dining area with vaulted ceiling!

Bedroom - it gets lots of light and has great vaulted ceilings, too!!

Even though redecorating the guest house wasn't really our first priority, it is still one of the first areas to be done.  While we were remodeling the kitchen and four bathrooms in the main house, we did most of our "living" out here.  The red and chocolate walls started to really get to me, so of course I painted and then kept going from there.  When we found out my mother-in-law was going to be coming for a stay, we really put the pedal to the metal trying to make it really nice for her.  Turns out, her Alzheimer's was bad enough that we didn't feel comfortable having her that far away from us, but it was nice to have it mostly completed for when my mom and dad came for three weeks in June!
