Guest Bedroom Makeover

It’s about time for a proper guest room!

The last time my Mama was here, she slept in this room.

In fact I refer to it as Mama’s room…

When she was heading to bed she asked me if I had something to sit by the bed, a place for her watch and rings and a cup of water.

So I grabbed a bar stool and took it in there and she said this is great, thank you!

Not so great Mama!

Any who, enough of that! Time for a guest bedroom makeover. I started searching online for an affordable headboard and I found one! A couple days later, I received an email from Crane and Canopy asking if I’d like to review their bedding! Ummmm, yes please, love it when something like this happens just at the right time. I have the perfect spot for it! I chose the Linden Grey Border duvet set, it’s as soft as butter.  Even though I have not slept on butter, I can only imagine that it would feel like this 😉

I will be adding art above the bed, something a little larger and more fun than that cute little mirror.

The windows will be getting some attention too. I grabbed some drapes at TJ Maxx this other day but they just didn’t work. They had a fun print on them and the color was a little off with what I had going on. They didn’t match the walls, the bed or the Linden Grey boarder. I’m back on the hunt…doesn’t bother me a bit!

Bed –  √, bedding – √ by now the room was on it’s way, you don’t have to spend a fortune and I’ll show you how!
