There's way too much big, dark, heavy furniture going on in there. And the layout really wasn't working. Everything is making this room look way smaller than it actually is.
When we decided to move the boys' room, switching all the rooms around just started making sense. So we moved the boys into the old "junk room", and moved the guest room into the old nursery(which is also the smallest bedroom). It used to look like this:
Ah! It looks so tiny in there!
It works. So much soothing...
And I finally got to pull out my old thrift store trunk to use as a side table!
Even this little munchkin was enjoying it.
We painted this room two years ago and I still liked the color so we were all set. It's definitely not finished yet, but it has to be functional anyway since we have family that come to visit a lot. It is still missing some small important things, like lamps. The room is small and it's full of big furniture but it still feels roomy and airy. I'm liking the direction this is going!
What do you think of the big guest room switcharoo? Do you have any suggestions to make that might hasten its finishing? What would you do?
