One of the most neglected rooms in our house is the guest bedroom. It’s almost completely empty, save for the bed, nightstands, and a lonely little chair. Since it will be the future bedroom of any offspring, I guess I’ve been kind of reluctant to do too much to it. I don’t want to invest much in furniture that might just have to be relocated in a few years. I have tried, however, to make the room a little more presentable for guests.
First order of business was purchasing a mattress topper and some new pillows, which went a long way towards making the bed somewhere I wouldn’t be completely embarrassed to have guests sleep. I also brought in an old duvet I had (from Ikea, I think everyone owns this duvet) which adds a nice pop of color to the room and tops off the awesome $5 Ralph Lauren quilt I found at the thrift store. Vases, an alarm clock, and a yummy smelling candle help, too.
It still needs some stuff, even if just temporarily, as the room is ridiculously empty. I’m hoping to find a dresser or desk cheaply (or freely) that I can repaint and stick on that side of the room, but no luck yet. Until then, it’s just this lonely little chair.
It looks so sad all by its lonesome!
