Be Our Guest

Good Morning.  Happy Week End


I would like to show you my guest room redo $0 dollars spent.







This is as you enter the guest cottage bedroom.




I used this old vintage mailbox I had to add some fun to the entry door to the guest room.








I had this Ikea Chair with white slipcover.  I added a ruffle pillow to the back of the chair.  The french market basket I will use to put throws and towels for my guests.










On this long wall I added an old chippy coat hanger that I had in storage from when I redid the bathroom.









It will make a nice place for my guest to hang items on.





I had this old drawer front so I hung it above the window to give the window a little bling.




Also framing out the window is these old chippy shutters that I had.






I love the way these chippy shutters frame this window.




Moved this little dresser from the living room into the guest room.



Shopped the house for things to put on top of the dresser.





I have the cascading ruffles on the bedspread and then the Ikea checked duvet.





Gotta add lot's of fun pillows on the bed.  Used one of my old chippy doors for a headboard.



There you have it.  Just shopped the house and moved the furniture around and added things I already had to get a whole new look to the guest room.  No money spent.




My guest room is ready for company.
Hope you had a wonderful week end.
Have a great start to the new week.
Kris

  8. My bags are packed-I'm ready to go -I'm standing here just outside your door- (Peter, Paul & Mary). Oh- That is a gorgeous room. The only thing WRONG with it is if guests come and stay there they are NEVER going to want to go home. lol You did a wonderful job, Kris. I love how sweet and serene it is and those shutters are the perfect finishing touch. xo Diana

  20. Hello my dear Junki Chic Kris,

    OMG! I am swirling in your guest room. I am the first one who will jump in that heavenly bed. So pretty...

    Kris,
    Pls. tell me where can I find and purchase that ruffled bedcover you have? If you find same size like what you have, I would be the happiest person in the world, if you can purchase for me. Or give me the idea coz my best friend who live in Florida and a flight attendant/stewardess can purchase for me. She's flying every week in Stockholm.

    THank You in advance, dear Kris.

    Happy Sunday.

    Hugs,

  53. Morning Kris,
    Oh my heavens, love what you did with your quest room, it is all so cozy, fresh and wonderful.
    Like the addition of the buffalo checks and the beige. The mailbox idea on the door was just
    adorable, really liked it, course, I loved roses and birds nest, so it was a perfect chocie for
    the door..........and loved the wall right as you enter too with the guest room sign and the floral
    underneath, just lovely..............don't you just love when you can shop the house and redo
    something and get a whole new look for nothing.................love it.
    Blessings, Nellie
    Hope you are having better weather by now too.
