I mentioned in passing that I had worked on my guest room but I realized last week that I hadn't done a post on it yet.
Here it is just a couple hours later.
I just shopped my house, put together some "art," hung a picture, made the bed a little differently and tada!
Oh, and that big canvas? Just a $1 foam board from the Dollar Tree and a $5 dropcloth from Lowe's. It definitely needs something else though since it blends in with the walls. I'll probably add some color and contrast later with some of the paint samples I already have lying around here.
The little framed plant art is made with an eco-friendly laundry detergent bag that I had kept for just such a project. I bought the tray at Bed, Bath & Beyond. It's quite banged up so it was marked down to $5. It has a mat to frame photos on the bottom but I just cut a piece of wrapping paper to fit.
And yes, those are two round placemats taped up on the wall with masking tape.
And a basket of little extra toiletries for guests.
It isn't all my style, and it's not the color direction I want to go in for our house, but I think it looks a whole lot better. It's a lot more welcoming for sure. And just because it looks like this now, it doesn't mean that this is how it has to stay. I hope that is a lesson I'm learning.
Just don't peek into the hallway right now, Okay? All that stuff had to go somewhere...
