I still loved that color anyway so I decided to make it work(all bets are off whenever we get our next house and I'm currently calculating how long I have to wait to redo our master bedroom again...).
Anyway, the guest room is mostly done but with blue instead of the green I had originally planned. Sort of a nautical farmhouse theme, if you will. I like it more than I thought I would, considering that I've struggled with getting our guest room to come together for a few years now.
This curtain rod might just be my favorite thing in here right now. I spotted it at Target months ago and finally bought it when I found out we were having more company over Christmas. Nothing like company to get you moving!
I also have a thing for antique glass or crystal door knobs. I often wondered just how much money I'd have to set aside on glass door knobs for our forever house. Probably too much but one can dream. My Nana had a couple that she kept sitting out and used for decoration. I always loved to look at them and feel how heavy they were. These obviously aren't the real thing, but it reminds me of them and I love it.
These wall sconces are actually cheap ones from Ikea. Originally, they were brushed silver but I gave them a few coats of oil-rubbed bronze spray paint to get that antique-y farmhouse look. Yes, I made up a word. I do that.
There are still a few things I'd like to add. Like an actual headboard, at the very least. Maybe a bigger mirror that comes down farther on the wall since the dresser is so short. Some pillows that work better together. An area rug would be nice for someday when I actually have money to blow on a rug I don't need instead of replacing the car that just died.
So now our guest bedroom is mostly done. Like everything else in our house. Maybe I should just change the blog name to "Mostly Done" already...
