We’ve been in our house just over 8 years. Crazy to think we’ve been here that long. In that time our guest room has gone through several changes. It was first a guest room, then man-cave/office, then a guest room/office, and now it’s back to a dedicated guest room.
I love watching DIY shows and HGTV. I love decorating, especially when it involves me sewing something. A few weeks ago, I got the idea that I wanted to make an upholstered headboard for the guest room. My husband OKed this project. I then decided I needed to paint the room. He OKed that project too. Somewhere along the way the project went from paint and a headboard to those, plus new bedding and pillows, window treatments, and a new chair. (Adding the new chair involves moving the existing chair downstairs and reupholstering it… Another post for another day).
If you’re still reading, hats off to you! Today, I made the trip to Ikea for the new duvet cover. If you aren’t fortunate enough to live close to an Ikea, I’m sorry. It is seriously one of my favorite places. I was able to bribe my mom to meet me and Zac there today to help. Ikea with a 2-year-old is not something I ever want to do alone.
I plan on blogging along with each step of this project, so stay tuned for updates! I got an email today that the fabric for my pillows shipped. I feel like a kid on Christmas!
No blog post is complete without pictures. First is my “before”. You can see the peg board on the wall from when it was my husband’s man-cave/office. The chair that is there is moving downstairs and I have a super awesome vintage rocking chair that is taking it’s place. I’ve also included a selfie of us from Ikea today. I am typing this out as I sit in the backyard, so I’ve included a picture of that too.
