Guest Bedroom

In August Morgan and I went to Portland for a little Vacation. My boss was generous enough to give me a $500 bonus for working there for FIVE whole years. Awesome huh....So off to Portland we went. In Portland is one of my most favorites stores....WEST ELM.

This is where the post starts...
I had a empty bedroom
(Actually I had been waiting to turn this into a babies room. It wasn't really this
empty. I had thrown a bed in there. Well I was sick of waiting and needed
a project.)
So it all started when my eyes landed on this...

So I said to Morgan...I think we should give the guest room
a face lift.
So we bought this...
(At IKEA for only $89)

Added some books, cute little items I found at
Crate & Barrel (another favorite) and West Elm.
The Small vases were at Crate & Barrel for only 19.99 (set of 3)
and the rocks we found on the beach in Oregon on our 6th wedding anniversary.
The vase holding rocks is from West Elm for only $9.99 (On Sale)

The side tables and lamps I got from our bedroom. I painted the side tables white.
I like them so much better in this space.
The mirrors were found at IKEA (for $40 each) but painted to match.

I wanted to make the book shelf stand out a little more so I found
some wallpaper for $5 and lined the back. I think it adds a little somethin!
I actually found a roll of wallpaper that I fell in love with but it was...$389...
So I compromised.

The finished result...

So with Paint and Supplies this room makeover cost me about $350.
So Thanks Dr. Nelson!
It was totally worth it, because now instead of seeing a space that was always waiting...
I see a beautiful room!
So if anyone needs a place to crash once in a while...
your room is ready!
