I love having a guest room – it’s perfect for when you have guests! But that’s pretty infrequent for me. So, it’s really important that I come up with some other use for my guest room so that it doesn’t stay empty 360 days a year!
I started out with a pretty blank slate. This is actually Sean’s favorite bedroom because he loves how it is on a corner and has double windows.
The first thing that I did was load in my old furniture. I sort of haphazardly placed it just to sit tight for a while until I could get around to painting.
Then, we decided to paint it a rich teal color, Schooner by Olympic. I got rid of (or moved to a different room) all of the furniture except the bed.
Next, I upgraded the duvet cover to this one from target.
I’d still love to:
- Come up with a purpose for this room (other than housing guests)
paint the walls
- swap out the sliding closet doors
- add a gallery wall
