Mission Acomplished: Guest Room in a Day

Well, it only took me a few hours of scrambling to pull it together and I did it!  By 1:00 the bed was here and from there it was a matter of pulling together some simple but colorful accessories.  My grandma’s good friend Linda sent me this amazing antique quilt.  It is seriously one of the most gorgeous quits I have ever laid eyes on and it really makes the room feel comfy.

I snipped our first full hydrangea from the side of the house and my kitchen cart has finally found a home as the perfect height nightstand.

I think it really came together nicely!  My mom and John are very pleased and I think it may be one of the prettier rooms in our house.  What do you think?

  1. OMG I LOVE that quilt!! That’s amazing! That bedframe is pretty darn cute too. I wish they didn’t make all beds like “sleigh” beds or platform beds nowadays, I never like any of those. I miss the old-timey bedframes like this.

  2. So impressed, Lindsey! Way to go!
