Show us your life guest room!


I typically don’t take part in Kelly’s Korner’s Show us your Life, but I couldn’t pass this one up! Our guest room is my favorite of all the rooms we have in the new house so I can’t resist showing it off!!
Many regular readers have seen it, but I will post again.

Here is the room from the doorway, when you walk in. I have since added curtains, a different end table and a floor lamp, but my memory card is acting up so I couldn’t take a picture of it. Also I’m lazy.

The bed is my husband’s childhood bed, and next summer I’m going to take it apart and spray paint it white to match the rest of the room (the new bedside table is white). The bedding was from JC Penney on clearance! We also had a gift card so I ended up spending all of $15 on it! I was quite proud of myself.

This is the wall opposite the bed, the same wall the door is on. The lava lamp was a gift to Geoff from me one of the years we were dating, but it matched so well that I put it in here! The dresser is also Geoff’s childhood dresser. It needs a little work (I have since replaced the drawer pulls because some of them were broken) but I haven’t gotten to it yet. Eventually!

I found these curtains at Bed Bath and Beyond in the children’s section! My mom suggested we hang a white sheer curtain under them, so there is now another curtain there. It looks really nice, so I will hopefully get around to showing you one of these days.

Even though we don’t always live in the guest room, I absolutely love it. It was the room that took the longest to paint and work on, but it is totally worth it in the end, I think!
