We recently finished creating a little guest bedroom...finally! While we love our Aerobed dearly, it's nice to have a more permanent place to sleep our guests. The room is tiny, and only holds the furniture you see here, but I say as long as there is a bed, you're good to go. I tried to create a hotel-like, gender-neutral space for the family and friends who visit (please come!).
Like always, we furnished this room with lots of budget finds. Here are my sources:
Upholstered Headboard: Target...can you believe it? It received excellent reviews online, so we took the plunge. I love it, especially because it was only $200.
White Sheets: TJMaxx/Homegoods. This is my favorite place for well-priced, high-thread-count sheets...we're talkin' $50 or less for 600 TC+.
White Duvet Set: a now-defunct bargain warehouse called Lucky Aces :( From now on I'll hit Homegoods for stuff like this.
Lamp: also a Lucky Aces find...
Nightstand: I spent months trying to find a nightstand that I liked, that was in my budget, and fit the tiny space next to the bed. After coming up with zippo I decided to use one of my spare kitchen stools that I bring out for cooking classes. Oddly enough, I like it...a lot actually. Sometimes it's all about using what you have!
Art: a new Chad Wys aquisition. He was such a trooper on this custom piece. I named the size I needed for the space, sent him the swatch of the wall color (as well as a link to the throw on IKEA's website), to ensure everything looked the way I envisioned. Once again, he did not disappoint. His pricing is incredible and I encourage everyone to snatch up a little piece from Chad before he hits the big time :)
Not pictured is a large mirror on the opposite wall to create the feeling of a larger space :)
