Guest Room Tour

Welcome to our guest room!

I had to let the craft room go and transform this space into a guest room. 

My family lives in a different state, so when they come to visit, I want them to be comfortable and have their own space. Which is why we decided to say good by to the craft room. 

Lets take a peek:

As I am sure most peoples "guest rooms" are, this room is full of old things from around the house. The only thing I actually bought for this room is the bed and mattress. Desk was in our office, linens are from my old queen sized bed, lamp is from our living room, chair is from the dining room ..... you get the point :)

Wall stencil: etsy

Desk: IKEA (no longer available)
Chair: IKEA
Euro shams: DIY (fabric is from IKEA)
Coral pillows: DIY
Small green throw pillow: Home Goods
Mirror: Thrifted

The white, orange and green boxes are from IKEA, everything else on the shelf are things from around the house. The boxes hold my crafting things: ribbons, buttons, elastic, stamps, patterns...

The desk drawers have my thread, needles and other sewing things.

I store the sewing machine in the closet, If I need to sew something quick, I use the desk. 
If I need more room, I bring the sewing machine down to the dining table. 

The  bench we keep in front of the bed is for our dining room. 
If we are having a big dinner party, we bring the bench down to the dining room since I only have 8 chairs. 

I just got a elliptical this week! (Gotta  get back into shape before summer)
I will keep it here, if we have guest coming, I will have the hubby move it to our room for a while. 

Thanks for visiting. 

Hope you all have a great day

  9. The room looks great. We don't have a guest room because we have a toy/craft room. But we have only been in this house since December and it is seriously small. It is only a three bedroom 1 bathroom. It's a company house though so we get super cheap rent. But I really miss our old house on the other side of the country. We had sooo much space!
