GUEST ROOM ON A BUDGET

Empty bedrooms.  For years there were more kids than bedrooms and then I blinked. I never thought I’d see the day I’d have a dedicated space for guests. But I’m thrilled to finally reveal how I pulled together a guest room on a budget.

A New Season of Life

A new season of life is an opportunity for renewed purpose and perspective.

These days I’m considering how to best serve my friends and family where I am with what I have. I want my young adult children, extended family, and friends who visit to have a comfortable space that reflects my idea of home. And since I’m frugal to a fault it has to be a guest room on a budget!

I repurposed furniture from other rooms, did lots of chalk painting (including a brass chandelier and the ceiling fan!), made a dust ruffle from a linen sheet, found a comforter and lamps at the thrift store, used an old door as a headboard, and added a quilt, curtains, and some fuzzy pillows from Ross.

I couldn’t be more happy with how it turned out.

It’s the perfect cozy spot in the evening.

This room makes me smile every time I pass by it.

I love it even more when it’s occupied by friends and family!

Thank you for stopping by for a visit. Our home has many areas that are still in desperate need of attention. (We have orange shag carpet on the stairs!) But I’m not discouraged. (Okay. Maybe occasionally impatient.) But I press on, gathering what I love from yard sales and thrift stores. I’ll chalk paint anything and make do with popcorn ceilings and old carpet.

Because it’s not the house I love, but the life that’s lived in it!
