I have needed to refresh our guest room since my oldest son took up residency in our finished basement. It is fine when my younger son comes to visit but not for out-of-town guests that are coming to town.
It really isn’t that bad, but it needs a little pick me up. The paint color is fine, but it needs new bedding, window treatments, a lamp, and artwork.
I didn’t want to spend a lot of money, so it was off to Good Will in search of bargains!
This is the room in question. It definitely screams boy. I am going to try and salvage the table with paint. Not sure of the color yet. The shape of the lamp is good but this will also be painted and needs a new shade.
First thing I found were three Pottery Barn pillows with down inserts. Love the paisley print and the colors are perfect!
Next up were two gray striped pillowcases that will go with the white sheets I already have.
If that wasn’t enough, I came across these geometric covers that pick up the gray in the Pottery Barn pillows!
I could not believe my luck!
As I was heading to the cash register, I saw this throw and picked that up also.
The Pottery Barn pillows were $4.00 each, the geometric covers were $2.99 each, the striped pillowcase were $1.00 each and the throw was $4.00. I already have white sheets so the only thing I will have to purchase new is a comforter or quilt. The savings at Good Will offset the cost nicely.
I still am going to paint the lamp and the table. The drapes in my husband’s office will work in here nicely (I haven’t shared that with him yet though).
Stay tuned for a reveal in the next few weeks!
