Our guest room is finally done! It used to be the home office, but Marcello and I both had the idea at the same time to close in the double doors and make it another bedroom! I did it on the cheap (of course), I’ll show you how.
I wanted the room to work for anybody — adult, child, male or female — so I kept it neutral, but added a blue ceiling for a touch of fun.
This is what it used to look like:
It was the dumping ground for random stuff when we moved in early this year. And somehow I didn’t take any before pictures so now I have to show the world this mess! Haha!
I asked God if we should fill in the doors and make a bedroom to help other kids with this house he’s given us. If so, I told him He’d have to do it because we don’t know how and it’s not in the budget to hire someone so soon after moving.
Do you know that the next week some new friends said they would help us fill it in! And they did! Within two weeks it was all filled in and cost about $150. Seriously!
Thursday I’ll show you how I did a board and batten wall on the dining room side of this wall.
Here’s what the room looks like as a bedroom. We moved our office into our bedroom! Post coming soon.
I use upholstery nails instead of nails for wall hangings and instead of tacks for bulletin boards.
It’s cheaper to buy succulent pieces at Hobby Lobby or Joann Fabric and stick it in a pot, rather than buying a faux plant already potted.
I curious to see who God has this room in store for! I hope they feel at home and welcomed here.
