I realize it’s been well over a month since I first showed you the masculine guest bedroom and office makeover – A.K.A. Bill’s room.
Essentially, Christmas threw up everywhere and this post kept getting pushed to the back burner.
This room is by far one of my favorites and really, I just pulled it together, Bill came up with the plan and he knocked it outta the park. We used a mix of new items with ones we already had, we DIYed a thing or two and of course, we mixed in a few yard sale and thrift store finds. Here’s the full source list for everything in the space – if something is no longer being made, I tried to find a similar version for ya.
Faux Sheepskin Area Rug (Chocolate Color, We went with an 8′ x 11′)
We also removed the footboard and added feet to the box spring to eliminate the need for bed rails.
I’ll be honest – I didn’t think that white quilt would work at all. Bill was very specific about not getting a comforter because it made him too hot, but he didn’t want something too thin either. He found the white quilt and when we got it home, I was so surprised at how well it worked in the space. I do think though that without the fur throw it would have been too stark.
The black and chrome chair is vintage and was a yard sale find that was once covered in rust. This chair is actually the exact same one – minus the rust mine had. Wassily chairs are also very similar and honestly, prettier, but more expensive. The drapes are just your basic white ones from IKEA.
The dresser is vintage. For local Chattanooga folks, it came from the Insyde Outsyde Shop. I wasn’t using the mirror that goes with our master bedroom furniture, so I propped it on top of Bill’s dresser.
We made the bookshelf ourselves after we saw a similar one for $1000 that I just couldn’t bring myself to spend that much money on. I found the record holder at a yard sale. Urban Outfitters has a similar new option and Etsy is full of vintage ones.
The horse print was a yard sale find and unfortunately, I can’t find any similar ones online. The vintage pennant was a gift from a friend, but you can find lots of those on Etsy.
I’ve also got a post about stylish and comfortable desk chairs here if ya need that.
If I left anything out, let me know y’all!
And can I just say – I’m really glad the Christmas decorating hoopla is winding down… #thisgirlneedsatimeout
And if you didn’t see the full before and after of Bill’s room, you probably should. He kinda killed it.
You know you don’t wanna miss any of this crazy.
