How to finish the Guest Bedroom?
I think Ive established I have zero clue what Im going to do with the master bedroom so Im putting that to the side for now.
What I do have is most of the pieces to finish off the guest bedroom. The question is how best to put it together and finish it off. I'd like to keep new purchases in here to a mininum so its going to be an excercise of using what I have as best as I can.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Help me decide what to buy, move, arrange, hang in here so it a pleasant oasis for guests.
Here she is
I think this goes without saying but please ignore the mismatched bedding & the plastic bin with tv balanced on top.
What Im loving about the room:
-I love the headboard (thank you JCPenney for having style on a budget!).
-I love the brass chandelier. We grabbed it from the in-laws house. Mr. Limestone had all of his childhood dreams under this very fixture.
-It gets great light
What Im having a hard time with:
-I picked this green color thinking it was pleasant and would be easy to create a room around. I think we can all agree I was VERY wrong about that one. Im having a real hard time with a color scheme.
-The bed itself is a full size rather than a queen. I didn't realize how hard it would be to find bedding in a full size!
-The black doorknobs on the closet were supposed to be a glass knob set we had left over but the contractors LOST it. Grrr.
-The windows are an odd size so if I do shades, they would have to be custom made (read: $$). So I think it has to be curtains or bust.
-The Madeline prints that I brought over from my last house. I love them and I think they bring a little bit of whimsy without being too childlike.
What I have to work with:
- The bed
- The set of Madeline prints (which need to be rematted and framed)
- This desk that I plan on painting to match
- An old straightback chair that I will repaint and recover the seat to match (no photo, sorry)
- Two small knotty pine Ikea nightstands that I can paint to match
What I need to buy:
- Window Treatments
- New mattes/frames for the prints
Help! Pretty please? Inspiration photos much appreciated.
