Guest Room Ideas



I’m woefully behind on this month’s to do list. One of the things on the list is to fix up the guest room because we have guests coming next month. My goal for the room is just to make it cozy and comfortable. There’s an antique iron bed and a white dresser in there right now.  The room’s pretty small and the bed is queen size so that doesn’t leave room for much else other than maybe a chair that could also be used as a nightstand. There is also white bedding and white cotton drapes on the window.

I want to hang some art above the dresser either framed or just tacked up on the wall:


and find a patterned (or at least colored) shade like this for the window:


Then a small rug and I think I’ll be done. Easy, right? Ha!

    I love the casual feel of the first room. Comfy for guests to stay. With the pictures on the wall, I say tacks and small nails for a casual appeal, and frames if you’re fancy…
