helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

The guest room is one room in our house that we have yet to do anything with. It’s a pretty sad sight, really. Just a lonely bed on a rolling frame with a makeshift desk for E’s computer. Take a look for yourself:

I’d probably get 3 of these and group them together on the wall

Then I plan to refinish an old desk we’ve got in storage to match the white… All this plus the cost of paint, I could furnish and transform the whole guest room for under $500. Still saving but hope to be able to pull it off some day. :)
