An inspiring concept for my guest room!
It's been a very busy week, and my decorating mind is rather unfocussed.
I'm still considering a look for my guest bedroom but can't seem to make progress. I'm soul-tired after work these days and also joined a book club (silly me), so with gardening and other home projects, I don't have much left at the end of the day.
I also think I'm slow to start this room because it needs so much work. Not only does the room need painted, it sorely needs new lighting, window coverings, a headboard, and a new nighttable. Even if I find budget versions of all of these, it's still a lot of time and effort and I honestly don't feel like opening my pocketbook either. Maybe I will have to hit some garage sales (wink)!
I did find two pretty light fixtures, from Thomasville Lighting. The room has regular 8 foot ceilings and the light fixture sits off-center (near one corner, over the bed), so a chandelier won't work and is too fussy for me anyway.
But these two options are simple and pretty:
The room has a weird window/ledge, so I think I will be forced to replace the existing blinds and use a valance for decoration, as much as I love the look of curtains. Custom valances cost a mint, so I may have to haul out the sewing machine and my grade 8 Home Economics notes. I love the pretty valance below and the crisp white blinds:
And maybe I can disguise my old side table with fabric. Oh dear, more sewing. I think I might need a glue gun. Isn't this pretty?:
Surpringly, I also found a super-affordable cotton-slipcovered headboard at Home Depot which might suffice until I find a bed I truly adore. A bed looks so much more finished with a headboard at least...
I shall keep you posted on my snail's pace progress and will post "before" photos when I'm ready to start painting!
