Decorating a new home doesn’t always mean new furniture. Here’s a peak at the fun space we created in one of our upstairs guest bedrooms using furniture & decor items that we already had on hand…
Rehabbing our rough upstairs was one of our first priorities when we moved into our house, and within a week of closing we had given the walls a fresh coat of grey and replaced the despicable berber carpet. But after the initial dust had settled, we moved on to other projects downstairs… and that was pretty much it. With the exception of our quickie guest bath makeover and master bedroom in progress, we haven’t done much to our upstairs besides move some furniture around.
That said… moving around some furniture can make quite a difference, especially when you’ve got some pretty groovy pieces to work with. Here’s how we made the most out of what we had on hand to create a fun guest bedroom…
I created this mini Audrey Hepburn gallery by framing several 4×6 prints (these ones came with a special DVD box set!) using Ikea’s Fiskbo frame ($1.49 a pop — can’t beat that!)
The Audrey inspiration continues with this fun tray! The book and journal (similar here) were both gifts. I picked the tray up a few years ago at a craft fair. Ditto for the eyelash sleep mask.. it reminded me of Holly Golightly and I couldn’t resist (here’s an even better dead-ringer!)
The damask bedding and pillows came from Belk several years ago (here’s a similar set!) The grey tufted velvet headboard was a clearance score from Pier 1 Imports.
I snagged this crystal drum chandelier a few years back at (of all places!) Costco. I’m thinking about painting the shade black… what do you think? (Here’s a similar style that comes in both colors!)
The flocked damask shade lamp and metallic mirrored nightstand were both found at Home Goods!
This awesome glass-top dresser with vanity mirror was part of Ikea’s Hemnes collection back in the day. Sadly, it was discontinued 😦
These flocked damask curtain panels were an awesome Hobby Lobby find (love that place!) They’re hanging on the same Ikea rod we’ve used throughout the rest of our house!
