Are you tired of it yet?
I just wanted to remind you all what we started with
and what goals I had for the room.
This was the mood board I threw together to sort of show the plan.
And here I am staining the planks
so that hubs and his helper could put them up on the wall.
And here is what I left you with last: newly painted walls and a planked wall.
The next thing I did was play around with the bed placement. It is AMAZING at what this can do for a room. Changing around the furniture can give such a different perspective.
I then went shopping and got some great finds, Including this end table.
I found it at GoodWill for $6.99!!!!
Most of the other accessories came from Ikea or Target (two of my besties.)
And here she is all put together. I may have a few little ideas but for the most part I'm calling her done--especially since the holidays are near and we will need to put it to use.
Remember my map project I showed you the other day? This way guests can sort of "sign in".
Okay so now the room is pretty much assembled, it is time to add some essentials to help our guests feel at home.
Starting with a place to put their suitcase(s) and hang up their clothes.
The top drawer of the dresser has a basket with some lint rollers (we have dogs), Advil, and lotion (for dry winter skin). The rest of the drawer I left open for guests to use.
The next drawer has an extra quilt incase it gets cold.
While the third drawer has an extra set of flannel sheets.
I keep off season sheets under the bed in a cedar lined box.
Every guest room needs a bedside lamp and alarm clock
as well as a selection of books to read.
The other side of the bed has a box of tissues and a water decanter and glass.
One drawer has some paper and pens/pencils and some catalogs and Saduko. The other one I left open for guests. I'm thinking wallet, keys, phone, etc.
A comfy reading chair complete with a throw blanket and selection of magazines. I even included a photo album to go down memory lane a bit.
I keep a basket of toiletry goodies as well as extra towels in the bathroom next door (which also happens to be the girls' bath. Hence the pink basket.
This holds everything from extra toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, razors, to shaving cream and contact solution. Just about anything that someone may forget and need while traveling.
So there you have it! Our Guest room reveal. Now we just need some guests!
