Be our guest!
This guest bedroom makeover was one of my favorite projects recently, and I am so excited to show you how it all turned out! This used to be a baby nursery since it’s pretty close to the master bedroom, but, now that all four little girls share rooms in one combination or another, I was able to turn this into a room for out of town guests. Scroll on down for sources and more views!
I’ve never used wallpaper before, but this cement tiles pattern done in navy from Milton and King (“Heritage Tiles”) was love at first sight. 💙 I always love trying new and unexpected things in decor, so I paired this sort of modern looking tile pattern (based on an old type of tile…go figure. 😏) with some copper accents to really make both pop! That huge copper pendant light was a lucky vintage find for under $50, and…it actually still works! I was shocked. Expected to have to take it in for work, but nope. Works like new! I used some vintage copper molds to sort of mimic the look of a four-poster bed, and I’m pretty excited how the whole copper and navy thing worked together.
So. Let’s talk about THIS BED. 🙀
I know, right?! I stumbled upon it at a local antique store, but I didn’t have money in the budget to buy it nor did I have a place for it at the time. With a heavy heart, I walked away…sniff sniff. 😥 But! Lo and behold, a few months later, I saw that it was still in store AND…it had been marked way down. You guys…it was only $70!!! Solid wood, so sturdy, no damage and basically the most beautiful vintage and weathered wood tones I’ve ever seen. 😍 Snatched that sucker up in no time, and, if you are an Instagram buddy o’ mine, you might remember me whisper-shouting to you on stories the day I found it for the second time! 😉 It’s a full-size, and I’m fully in love.
Another fun little twist on the guest room was layering up on rugs to create a cozy, extra plush feel! We have wood tile floors (Style Selections in Natural Cinnamon Timber 8x48in) throughout, and I wanted to layer up in here like I did in our living room to add softness for our guests…and for when the girls crawl under there to play or make forts. 😉 The jute rug is from Target and the fluffy cream rug is from Well Woven!
Across from the bed hangs this beautiful scripture scroll from Mustard Seed Beginnings, and I love the verse for the guest room so much. I wanted to “hug” the scroll with some vintage ironstone plates and old teeny copper molds to catch the eye and create some interest and depth on the wall. Flanked the scroll with a little topiary from Hobby Lobby, some navy and copper touches from Home Goods, and a few other accents to complete the decor atop this old curvy dresser…that used to be the changing table for my babies. 😭 Sniff sniff. Goes by so quickly, gah!!
And now, here’s where I need your help:
I’m still stuck on window treatments. 🤔 This view looks pretty simplified, but remember, the other wall has that pretty busy wallpaper…I don’t want to do much more in here, or it might start to feel extra crazy busy. I know I want to keep that bamboo roller shade, but then…curtains? What color, white? Linen? Sheers to match the fairy/princess/mosquito net above the bed? I’m just stuck. On curtains. 😂 Sometimes the brains are just plumb tired and out of ideas, so let me know what you guys think!
Thank you for stopping by to take a little guest room tour with me, and I sure appreciate your support: from kind comments to interaction on Instagram and Facebook…you guys are the best buddies around!
