Guest Room Unveiled

Parker and I have always wanted to have a guest room. In 5 homes, this is the first where it has been possible. He could have built guest furniture in Kingsville, but my parents were the only ones who came to visit us, so we waited on the guest suite until we got to Norfolk. Thank goodness we did, because there would have been zero room for that in Corpus Christi. Naturally, the first thing Parker did once his tools arrived to Norfolk was build a guest bed!

We looked online and decided on a design and style we liked, and he went right to work. Three days later, the bed was a bed! He did something different with it that we really love. The middle of the headboard is actually upholstered with fabric that we picked out. It's so unique and different, and we are basically just obsessed with this room. We will have our first visitors in 2 short weeks, and their room is ready!

We knew we wanted to go with whites, greys, and yellows, and I am pleased with the pieces we chose. The room is painted blue, so we decided to stay away from blue/green hues so we wouldn't have to worry about clashing. Neutrals with a pop of color in the bedding was the name of the game! So, without further ado, here it is...



We actually recycled an old, hand-me-down brown side table for the nightstand. Parker attached trim to the top to match the headboard and footboard, and we painted it white. Love the result and love that it didn't cost anything! The lamp was recycled as well, and I talked about that last week when I talked about my new found obsession with spray paint.




Bed: custom (built by Parker)
Nightstand: Target (old), painted with trim added 
Bedding: Target
Lamp: Hobby Lobby (old)
Lamp Shade: Target
Rug: Home Goods
Upholstery Fabric: Walmart

I love this room!! I love that blue color. That's the color that we are wanting in the living room. Not to paint the room, but an accent color.
