This spring we are making some big changes in our borrowed abode, including – *spoiler alert* – dismantling the guest room.
I never did finish decorating the room like I wanted to, but I did get it pulled together enough to comfortably welcome a few guests over the last year. At the end of the day, having a comfortable space for guests to call there own is all that really matters. Since this blog is my home diary of sorts, I have to share the guest room in its most final state – just for the sake of posterity.
The room is a small (10×8?) room, separated by French doors from the basement TV room.
There was just enough room for two twin beds, a small dresser that I found on the side of the road, and a chair. While waiting to refinish it, I covered the very scratched top of the dresser with a piece of fabric.
The yellow paint around the window (above) and by the accent wall (below) is the mark of an unfortunate whim, when I thought that a mustardy yellow would look good on the walls. Shortly after starting to apply it, I realized I’d made a mistake.
The nightstand is a mid-century modern record cabinet that I scored at Goodwill for $15. The throw pillow covers are actually fakes – I threw them together just for decoration purposes using this trick from years ago.
In the end, I’m happy with how it turned out – especially considering I put very little work into it aside from the bed frames.
