Last week I gave our guest bedroom a little makeover. Besides buying a new bedspread (that I found for a steal of a deal of only $35) I spent no other money and only used things I found around the house.
Our guest bedroom has evolved a little over the past few years. Here's what it looked like when we first moved in.
Then, when we got our new master bedroom set we changed up the guest bedroom a bit. We traded the full for a queen. We kept everything else the same and used the bedspread we'd gotten as a wedding gift. The bedspread had seen better days ever since Baylor tore it up so Matt suggested I try to find a new one. Well that little nudge from him got me itching to spruce up the room.
The guest bedroom is our "catch all" room for furniture and decor pieces. It's never quite felt pulled together, more of a hodge podge of things I've had for years. So inspired by the new bedspread I changed some of the artwork, brought in a few new things from around the house, and cleared away a little of the clutter.
The crafting I did for the room was very pinterest worthy #not. But it was quick, easy, and cost me nothing so I call that a win! I already had the canvases and repainted one (and it probably won't stay like that for long but that's the beauty in free artwork - you can easily change it without regret!) and covered the other two with fabric from the pillowcases that came with the bedding. I added a few rows of ribbon at the bottom to give the canvases a little something extra. For the frame I put a piece of scrapbook paper behind the glass and used double sided tape to add a few pictures to the outside of the glass.
