The Shack: Our Little Poconos Getaway and Finishing Up the Guest Bedroom (Post #21)

Hello again! Today I want to show you the remaining furnishings we’ve chosen to finish out the guest bedroom on the main floor at The Shack.  Last time, I showed you the custom wall sconces we made from vintage plant hangers.  Today, I want to show you the dresser, bookshelf and bed-side tables we placed in the guest bedroom.


BEFORE: When we first visited the home with our Realtors, this room was painted a super dark brown. The bedroom is already pretty dark with only one small window, so it definitely needed brightening!


AFTER: The new hardwood floors and paint color did so much to brighten up and enlarge this little guest bedroom at The Shack. Adding the wall lights helps a lot too! Now the room feels bright and cozy at the same time. You’ll notice I had custom draperies made for the small window. Stacking them at the sides helps to visually enlarge the window a bit and take your eyes upward. I also added a new, vintage bookshelf (which you can see on the right side of the image) between the bathroom and closet doors, and a useful antique oak dresser (peeking out at the left of the image).


If we rotate around to the left, you can see the antique dresser I added, along with a vintage mirror. These items along with a few antique accessories, really make the guest bedroom at The Shack. Now it feels quaint and homey. We also added a simple shelf on the wall to the left of the bed. It acts as both a bedside table, and could act as a tiny desk of sorts, with a small stool pulled up underneath.


Pretty custom pillows add color and interest to the bedding. In this photo, you get a really good look at the custom wall lights we created too! You can also get a clearer look at the antique Adirondack picture frames clustered on the wall next to the window. I love how they add a quaint old-timey charm to the space!


Lastly, I placed a vintage bookshelf on the wall opposite the bed. It fits perfectly in the space between the freshly painted closet and bathroom doors. A pair of vintage mushroom book-pages mounted in custom frames finishes off the wall above the shelf. By the way, those turkey feathers on the shelf were all found on our property outside of The Shack (don’t worry, I wash them all really well as I bring them inside). I adore spotting all the wildlife we get to see on our fully wooded property in the Poconos!


So, this concludes our tour of the Guest Bedroom at The Shack. I’m extremely happy with the transformation, and how cozy that room has become. We’re really enjoying the time we spend with our awesome friends and family in The Poconos, now that some of the renovations have been completed.

Stay tuned for further updates about The Shack.  I’m planning to share the details of our custom fireplace mantel with you soon. Until then, make sure to like Robinson Interiors on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter, and DO stay tuned for future updates on The Shack!
