A Guest Room Makeover

School Holidays mean one thing in our house…..VISITORS! 

As most of our family live miles away, school holidays are the perfect time for a grandparent visit.  We are very lucky to have a spare bedroom which is the allocated guest room.  Unfortunately, as it is a room used only occasionally, it has been a little neglected on the decorating front.  

Oh the Before picture is very sad.  Although I had found quite a nice “comforter” a while ago it didnt come with any pillowcases or cushions.  I convinced myself when I bought it that I would eventually find some that matched. I ummed and ahhed over what colours would match together and my inability to make any decisions equated to…. eventually never coming! 

Whilst browsing Target (for something completetly unrelated) I found this “6 Piece Bed Pack”.  It was the same price it was going to cost me to buy pillowcases and cushions to  match the existing comforter (On sale for $60) and it was COMPLETE!  No matching or decision making required! 

Until now I had been put off buying quilt covers and had instead gone for a comforter simply because I hate trying to make lumpy beds.  

Finally someone (surely a woman) has had the good sense to put ties on the quilt that can be tied to the cover.  No more lost and lumpy quilt!

The bedside table was replaced with a tray table that we had downstairs gathering junk and dust.   

 Some favourite magazines, a cute owl plate to keep jewellery, tickets or your phone and a simple white bowl with some Cath Kidston Bath Products. ALL BOUGHT ON SALE!

With some new bedding, a refresh of the bedside table and repurposing some artwork from around the house we have given the Guest Room a whole new lease of life. 

Now she just needs some visitors!
