Guest bedroom projects!

Thursday, April 9, 2015

Our guest bedroom has been unfinished since we moved in a little over a year ago. As I've said in previous posts, furnishing/decorating an entire house is EXPENSIVE. Just ask my husband ;) So the guest bedroom has been on the bottom of our priority list in terms of decorating since we've only had people stay a handful of nights. Since all our family lives within an hour of us, we don't really have many overnight guests. However, every time I walk by that room my OCD gets the best of me. You see, I want everything finished… like, now. So when Pottery Barn had a 20% off sale last week, I pulled the trigger on the curtains I had been eyeing. 

The hardware for the curtains is from Lowes. I considered buying it from Pottery Barn until I realized a curtain rod was approximately $100… no thank you. All of the hardware, including the clip rings, was around $50 at Lowes.

I have been looking for something to go over this bed for forevvvver. Everything I found was too modern. I wanted "french country"-ish, something classic and distressed. Well when I was at my favorite furniture store at the beach last weekend, those wooden mirrors screamed "GUEST BEDROOM!" So I took them home on approval and am so happy with how they look.

Eventually I will add trim to the curtains to make them "pop", but for now they will do. And I need to finish styling the bedside table. Overall, I am pleased with how these 2 projects have transformed the room! Now, who wants to come stay with us?!?
