Guest Room!

So, Kelly is doing a neat little home tour to share inspiration... I don't think I have a whole lot of inspiration in the room featured this week but I haven't had too much going on to write about so I decided to take a couple of pics and join in the fun! I'm hoping to get some ideas from everyone else to make this room a little more spunky!

I love this quilt, I ordered it on clearance from either Garnett Hill or Company Store, I don't remember which. I used it on my bed (full sized) even though it's king but later (after a foster dog ate one of the comforters on my twin beds) I push my two twin beds together to make a king. Now, I only use this bedroom when D is in town b/c it's big enough to fit us, Nola, and Luka and Finley!
Nothing fancy... this room used to be the room I put things in that didn't fit anywhere else. My condo has such little storage it's ridiculous really... My neighbors moved and gave me one of their TVs so I have a cheap little Target stand for it. The bookshelf holds all of the crafts that we sell to raise money for windows and orphans in Uganda. We participate in several markets here in town and set up shop to sell baskets, crafts, beads, and other items from Uganda. I needed a place to store things so went to Walmart and found a shelf for $30! It's nice because people can come over and "shop" if they prefer. (People I know of course!) Hope Aid has been able to raise quite a bit of money from the crafts. We're working on getting more bead necklaces to sell, can't wait! We're also working on a maternity ward project.
Can't wait to check out some other guest rooms!

I love your room - so cozy! So neat that you have a little 'shop' at home, too.
