You heard it right folks, we have a guest room remix in the works. I’m on a roll checking off my list of 2012 Retro Ranch Revamp Resolutions, having already completed resolution number one, painting my kitchen cabinets and getting ever closer to completing resolution number six, coming up with a final plan for the master bath remodel (I’m close, but still not 100% sure). Jim and I just ordered the rest of our new windows, so resolution number two is in the works, which brings me to resolution number seven, decorate the guest bedroom using the Broyhill Brasilia headboard I refinished last summer!
The guest bedroom currently looks like this:
It is a mish mash of all the bedroom type stuff that I don’t know what else to do with…
Of course I will keep the Broyhill Sculptra dresser (I scored a few years back on Craigslist for $50!) in the room and my newly rewired retro lamp will be living in here as well.
For the meantime, I will be keeping this end table in the room. It was one of my first ever furniture purchases! Eventually I would like to find some retro nightstands to use instead.
I also have another cool green retro chair (we have one in our master bedroom as well) that will be staying in the room.
I bought the bedspread at Target shortly after we purchased the house. It was love at first sight, and it just so happened to be green and orange, which worked perfectly with the green chair!
Based on what I’ve told you already, you may have guessed that:
• I will need a new window treatment (can’t use the existing cruddy roller blind with the new windows!)
• The IKEA Malm bed and nightstand will be leaving the room to make way for the refinished Broyhill Brasillia headboard
• The color scheme will have to have orange and green in it
• Most of the other furniture will be staying put
• The rewired retro lamp surely needs a shade and might need a makeover!
I’ll be back later in the week to show you my design plan, but first here is a sneak peek:
I do want my house guests to feel invigorated when they wake up in the guest room…
