Time For a Makeover!


It has been almost two years since we moved to our own place. Around this time last year, we were busy packing and moving our old furniture into our current home. I remember we packed everything ourselves, well I did most of the packing while B “supervised”!

The layout of our condominium is somewhat funny in the sense that our second room is much bigger than the Master bedroom and I mean like way bigger. In fact, it is so big that we converted it into a guest-room cum storeroom. We actually have a divider to separate these two areas and even then, the guest-room is still very much spacious and I dare say it will fit a bed king size of course, and then some! Aside from the occasional moving around of furniture, we have not done much to our guest-room ever since we moved in, which is why I’m contemplating on giving it a makeover!


Besides a new bed for the guest-room, I’ve also been toying with the idea of replacing our current living-room sofa with a new one. My ideal choice would be a white sofa but with our kitty cats around, that’s practically impossible. It definitely won’t remain white for long!


Anyway, I came across this wonderful site called Furniture From Home, which gave me plenty of ideas on how I can redecorate my home and I believe I've found the perfect bedroom set for my guest-room - the White Picket Fence Shabby Chic Country Bedroom Set. I think it's absolutely lovely!



The best part is that it’s white so even if I can never get my desired white sofa, I can still enjoy this white bedroom set in the guest-room. I bet all my guests would find this set just as comfortable and cozy as I’m feeling right now just by looking at the picture! So what do you think? Should I give my guest-room a makeover?

Hi Raghav, white is my fave choice for furniture, am currently into white but like I said in the post, it's really difficult to maintain stuff with my cats around. My kitchen is white as well! ;)

Adrian December 11, 2007 12:17 AM

GP!! That's is such a lovely room...you should do it! Can feel the warmth and rustic charm of a country home just looking at it! And white is perfect for that kind of setting...just don;t forget the tea and scones! :)

WaterLearner December 11, 2007 12:27 AM

wow .. such efforts for a guest room. Erm....Can I be invited. ** hee hee **. Nice design. But for me, I find white not easy to maintain.

Mariuca December 11, 2007 12:56 AM

Oh...no worries LJ, Nina will get along just fine with Chubbs then, he oso anti social! Smokey sounds so adorable pat pat!! :):):)

Mariuca December 11, 2007 1:00 AM

GK! Now I really feel like getting the entire set or something similar from around here! And scones & tea does sound lovely...yum! :):):)

Mariuca December 11, 2007 1:02 AM

Hola Karen, sure...come on over and enjoy the comfort in my guest-room (once I give it a makeover la) lol.... I like white actually. My kitchen is white too and yes, it's kinda hard to maintain but just have to clean and wipe more often I guess! ;)

Nessa December 11, 2007 4:43 PM

I love white furniture. Looks so fresh, clean and cozy :D

THE NAFASG TEAM December 11, 2007 7:41 PM

Cool!! A makeover for your guest room! U should go for it. It may cost u a sum of money but it sure would be worthwhile once u get to see for yourself how beautiful it turns out.

Nafadog would all the more love to have a sleepover at your house if u do this makeover. =)=)=)

Mariuca December 11, 2007 11:30 PM

Nessa! My sentiments exactly! I really like this particular white sofa from IKEA and many times we almost bought it, but always tak jadi cause we'll start thinking abt the cats and how they love to make a mess in the living room. So sayang lah to spend so much on a new sofa only to have the cats scratch and ruin it. Nevermind, maybe later when we move to a bigger place, we can have a special room for the cats so they won't be loitering around in the living room! :):):)

Mariuca December 11, 2007 11:32 PM

He he he, so cute la NAFA dog trying to convince me to get the makeover lol!!! I'm seriously considering the make over for my guest room AND I wanna get some new stuff for my home office too! Looks like I have to work harder to make more money for the makeover huh? Nice to see u here today NAFA! :):):)

THE NAFASG TEAM December 12, 2007 2:58 PM

LOL! Nafadog has his own ways of convincing people huh? Well about raising some money for the makeover, no worries. Take your time! Slowly but surely. Yeah!!! =)

"G",  December 12, 2007 4:42 PM
