So I got the itch to switch and changed up the office yet again! Remember when we renovated this room? Well it became a dumping ground for all my unused decor and still was not a functional room in our house. So we spent a weekend clearing it out, selling everything at a garage sale and starting over.
Let’s throw it back to where this room started, shall we?
You can see all the renovations we did to it in this post here, where it was transformed into an office. But not everything we do ends up staying, and I always value function in our farmhouse. With no real place for guests to sleep, it was time to create a guest suite.
Since we already had a full size mattress, the look for a full size bed frame became priority. I bought one at the local Habitat for Humanity but it was missing a frame and slats. We ended up seeing another one at a garage sale for $15 complete with the bed frame, but no slats. It was perfect size, and a jenny lind style so we scooped it up, among a million other things they were selling!
Hubby created bed slats from some 1×8 boards I had purchased for about $30. With no need for a box spring, our full size mattress fit perfectly on the bed frame! I had an extra Anthropologie Rivulets quilt laying around and it was perfect for this vintage style guest bedroom.
I still wanted to have a sewing and crafting corner in this room so we opted to place an enamel desk we had in storage in front of the window.
I had a vintage desk chair I had purchased on Facebook Marketplace for $40 that fit the theme perfectly and was the perfect fit for my desk!
We had a gorgeous Rugs USA rug in an 8′ runner that fit this room perfectly. The room is long and skinny, and I still wanted the wood floors on display. I have this rug in several colors and love it. You can shop it here!
For a nightstand, I picked up the cutest green stepstool from a local garage sale event. It was the perfect height and displayed the cutest antiques perfectly!
The chalkboard was already here from when I created a corner for my toddler to create in. So we opted to keep it and displayed some vintage photographs I had purchased at an antique store.
I had also picked up these vintage peg hooks at an antique store and although I wasn’t sure what I’d use it for, it was too cute and well priced to pass up. It ended up working perfectly in here because I can display decor on it or when guest are staying, it can be utilized for their belongings.
This space has seen many many changes since we first renovated it. I am so glad we decided to finally incorporate a guest bedroom into our house and finally have a cozy spot for our guest to stay!
I shared a few simple things you can do to make your guest bedroom cozy too! Let me know what you think of this room transformation in the comments below!
