Without much of a budget and nothing really rushing me, I have been tinkering around in the guest room since the recent overhaul. So what do I do? I just roam around the house and start grabbing what I have. I knew that I wanted to flank the bed with tables of some sort, but I don't have any. I threw this $14.00 thrift store chair beside the bed and love how it could function as a table!
For now, I threw a $5.00 yard sale end table (that is in desperate need of painting) on the other side with a $4.00 consignment shop lamp.
I love the curves of this lamp. Those same curves are on the vase that I placed on the chair, actually... I guess I like big bottoms, haha.
There isn't a lot of space in the room after we put in a queen size bed. I think the room is 10' x 11'. A day bed would be perfect for the size of the space, but not in function. We mostly have lovely romantic couples like us who need enough room to rhomp in when they stay over (did I just say that?!)...so... god save the queen...size bed. Anywho....I am thinking a sweet little campaign desk on this wall would be so perfect!
For this room, I would need a more narrow desk, but I am thinking this is completely DIYable...
Oh! I don't know exactly where these will go, but they were $4.97 at Wal-Mart in the college section. They had this chrome color and a brushed nickel color and a lot of empty rows that I am sure were filled with different colors. They had about 5 or 6 different color shades that you could also mix and match up at $4.97 each. Yesterday, I grabbed 2 to move around the house and think I will keep them no matter what. They are so small and cute and big bottomed and can be sprayed any color!
Happy Tuesday! This is my last wee of freedom...I start back to work next Friday :(
