Guest Bedroom Makeover

  • The New House

isn’t a “Finished” post by any means… it’s a “work in process” post! :) I’m just really excited about it! We inherited a mattress from Michael’s mom when we first moved into the house and it was wonderful because we had two usable guest rooms!! However, we knew that eventually we wanted to get some bedroom furniture and have some fun with this room… and when I say “we”…. I mean ME. Michael is so good to me. He lets me have fun and when you see what I put in this room, you’ll know that he had no say in the decor…. it’s super feminine…. and light and airy… and I love it!! :)

We are passing along our old furniture to the almost “newlyweds” in our family and we purchased two twin beds from Pottery Barn Teen. Michael’s aunt had an adorable twin bed set in her old house and I always LOVED it! So now we have twin beds in one of our guest bedrooms and in the future, we can add “trundles” so that this room can sleep 4! We try to think ahead when we’re making big purchases like this. The idea for this room is that one day our kids would share this space.  Right now we just have a cute extra bedroom for when we have multiple guests.

Now when I say this isn’t finished… I have big ideas for this room! Wall ideas…. cute accent pillows coming soon… etc. etc. But I wanted to share this because 1. I’m excited about it and 2. If I wait for every room to be 100% perfect and complete before I share it, I would never share anything. Decorating a home is a process!! So this is a part of my process!! ALSO, I’m hosting my first ever Design-a-wall GIVEAWAY!!!

    I think you should seriously consider becoming an interior decorator on the side! … as if you need another thing to do. ;) Lol!

    Cute room…makes me miss my daughters Pottery BArn room she had as a little girl…everything pretty and pink. Now she is going through her teen phase and we had to get rid of everything. Now she likes PURPLE and TEAL so I am in the midst of redecorating her room…it is so much fun, even though I had to get rid of the pink. If you have 2 little girls this room will be perfect!!
