Spur of the Moment

Standard

I had no intention of updating the guest bedroom until next summer. However, my parents were getting rid of an upholstered headboard, so I snapped it up. It was my dream to refinish an old wooden headboard in a funky color, but beggars can’t be choosers. Then while holiday shopping online I came across a sale on a funky comforter with all of the right colors, so I snapped it up.

After

Here’s the bedroom set I bought spur of the moment thinking the busy pattern and bright colors would make up for the lack of wall hangings and wall color. ┬áNow I’m not so sure, but it is a lot more cheerier.

It’s a little busy, and not the room of my dreams, but it’s better than blah.
