Our spare room has been somewhat neglected. It’s comfortable–but considering we have company staying with us a couple times a month, I wanted to spruce it up and make it prettier and more homey!

Above is a ‘before’ pic. I could have tidied it up {it didn’t always look quite this messy} but since I had plans to freshen it up–this is what you get! I loved that old bed frame, but it was actually pretty creeky–so I decided to replace it with two twin beds on simple metal frames.

The bedspreads are from Target {a couple years ago} and the striped sheets are from TJ Maxx. I wanted to keep this project affordable, so I used mostly things I already had on hand.

The velvet throw pillows are from Target and the aqua lamp is from TJ Maxx.

The knick knacks on the shelf are all things I already had–thrift store finds and some inexpensive vases from Ikea.

That big white frame was a garage sale find. I was going to spray paint it, but then I thought the large white frame was a nice balance to the window over the other bed.

Yay! All fresh and new–and so cozy! My sister and her family are staying with us and I hear the beds are comfy. I love a new, fresh room–don’t you?
