Guest room

Grant's parents gave us permission to decorate their second bedroom as a guest room. Here's what we came up with on a very minimal budget. We already had everything except for the bed (a cheap one I painted white), mattress, bedding and print in the frame.

The bedside tables were made from a 60cm x 92cm kitchen wall cabinet I had lying around - we cut it in half to create the two tables. A shelf forms the base of each.

View from the door:

Standing at the window:

The picture above the bed is one I took. I added a quote to it before having it printed. The qhote says:
Every house where love abides
And friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home sweet home,
For there the heart can rest

- Henry van Dyke

  1. I love the idea of that closet thingy. We have a guest bedroom too with no closet. I think I might borrow your idea. Once I move the crap out of the way to make room for one!

    Love the colors. So relaxing!

  2. So pretty! I'd stay there! :D

  3. It looks lovely!

  4. Bright, cheery, and so nice!
