30 Minute Guest Room Makeover

guest room ideas

The guest room, formerly known as a 15-year-old boy’s room was seriously lacking in style, furniture and general put-togetherness. I wasn’t ready to invest in a bed or anything for that matter but I did have a mattress, rug, thrifted chair, dresser and fun streamers. And a guest on the way. I wanted a quick, […]

I found this macrame plant hanger at the Goodwill for $3. In the winter I had different lanterns hanging from the hook, with a rope and pulley system and I loved it, but I wanted something different for spring. So took it down and just waited.
