Hey there! Today, I am sharing our guest room fluffing and a makeover. You can see the before guest bedroom here. Our guest room was in much need of a change. The mattress itself is comfy and for little as it is used that did not need replacing.
What did need replacing was the bed frame and headboard. After two moves, and two paint jobs, it just was not holding up very well anymore. The headboard was not even fully attached to the frame because I think the screws stripped.
You can see my Paint makeover I did back around 3 years ago with Annie Sloan chalk paint.
So during the Holiday hustle and bustle I got the bug to makeover the guest bedroom.
First, I went on line and googled iron headboards. I found a ton of course, but not in our price range. A few years back we replaced our bedroom set with an iron bed and it truly was an investment and one that will last a life time. I have no intentions of replacing it ever.
You may want to check out our Master suite while you are here. The bed came from Wesley Allen.
My Mom and sister were visiting at the time and my sister suggested I check overstock.com.
I did, and whaaaaaaaaaalaaaa….there was the bed I wanted for $168.00!
It was exactly what I was looking for.
I thought for that price, it probably is not very good quality, but again, this is for the guest room that only is used a few times a year.
Much to my husband’s surprise, he said it was pretty well made.
and easy to put together which is even better. I don’t have to hear the grumbling.
Most of the accessories remain the same. I love this burlap vintage framed art work. It is perfect for a guest room.
I replaced the bedding. Simple white coverlet by Cynthia Rowley found at Home goods. Pretty orange paisley print pillows too sold separate.
I wanted a splash of orange to compliment this little side table I had tucked in the corner of the room. Sometimes all the bedroom needs is a set of new linens to freshen it up. Changing your duvet or coverlet set each season is a fun way to refresh your space. I chose to stay neutral in the guest room.
I found this piece a few years ago at World Market. I loved the happy colors.
The rug is the perfect shape and size for next to the bed. As you can see we have the pergo flooring which can get a little chilly on your feet in the winter.
The rocking chair I have had for years. In fact, I think it too has had a few makeovers. It once was shabby chic style long ago.
This throw blanket stole my heart. It’s wool and the detail is just gorgeous. In fact, this was the most expensive part of the bedding!
I splurged and spent 29.99 on this blanket. I typically would never spend that much on a throw blanket. But it does complete the bedding and ties in nicely with the room. I love that bohemian style, sorta laid back and hippy feeling I get from this room.
I’m certainly not on the same trends that are going on today. I don’t even know what is too popular. Seems I see the same thing across the board and in magazines and people follow them. I follow what I truly like and what is reflective of me, and us as a family in general. You have to be comfortable with your environment and what you make of your home.
The entire room makeover started with the Ceiling fan. You can read all about Why you should have a ceiling fan here.
I never thought I would go white in in this room for the bedding. But it really was the first bedding that jumped out at me. Lucy, nor the boys will be all over this bed, so why not lighten and brighten the room for the guests.

I often get asked the color of this bedroom. It is cappuccino by restoration hardware. However, we used Benjamin Moore paint and they color matched the swatch perfectly!
Thanks for stopping over today. If you are not a regular, I sure would love to see you back again.
P.S. By the time you are reading this, I will be on a plane heading back home. My Mom is doing remarkably well in rehab. I feel confident enough to leave now and let her spread her wings and fly. I have a feeling she will be home very shortly. She truly is my hero and my inspiration.
