So this house came with 3 bedrooms and right now we only need 2, so we made our extra room into a guest bedroom.
As you can see, the nice stained blue carpet from the hallway ran right it. This bedroom actually didn't need much. So we put in new carpet, and painted a neutral color (same as the hallway/living room)
I had found a bedroom set with a twin bed, 2 dressers and a nightstand on craigslist for $100 bucks, right in the next town. So I jumped on it! However, having a twin bed in a guest room isn't very practical.
(Side story: when our friend moved to Texas, he left all of his furniture in his old bedroom at home.)
SO when our friends came to stay with us from, Texas, Matt went to his house and took his bed and brought it to our guest room! (perfect right)
I wanted him to take all the furniture, sheets and all, so we could recreate his old bedroom in our house. Matt thought that was a little extravagant.
So for now we have this huge mismatched bed, and half of the craigslist set. We dont have guests often so its not a big deal! But at least it didnt become a junk room!
Before and after! A little paint, carpet, and furniture updates a space easily!
