It was far past time for our guest bedroom to get a makeover. Now that it’s nearly done, I’m considering taking it over for myself because of one thing – the mattress. This Serta iComfort Hybrid mattress from Sears is the real deal. This post is sponsored by Sears. While this was a sponsored opportunity,…
I hope you just started singing Guns ‘N Roses Welcome to the Jungle after reading that title.
As I told you when I revealed the guest bedroom and office makeover on Monday, this space is a 100% selfish act.
When I started plotting this makeover, yes, I wanted guests to enjoy the room, but it was going to contain my workspace as well. And I would be the one spending the most time in here. So, come Hades or high water, this space would be whatever my little heart desired.
And it is.
When I showed you the guest bedding a few weeks back, I hinted that the back wall would be getting a serious treatment, so the bedding didn’t need to be too patterned.
That back wall did get a serious treatment – a serious leopard skin accent wall treatment.
Sometimes, I must think I’m Wonder Woman.
At the beginning of every week, I create a list of what I need / want to get accomplished.
The list is usually one full page of my large planner long and somehow I think I will be able to do all this stuff within the week.
The only time I get to work on my projects and the blog is a few hours each day before the kid wakes up and after she goes to sleep, and for 4 1/2 hours two days a week while she is at preschool.
I must be crazy.
Not every item on that list ever gets checked off.
Needless to say, I had planned on showing this completed guest bedroom and office space to you months ago.
Whatever voice in my head telling me that was insane.
You have seen some projects from it already, but you haven’t seen the whole enchilada.
When I showed you the guest bedroom’s new bedding a couple weeks back, some of you guys asked about the upholstered box spring. I hadn’t really planned on posting about it because I’ve seen a few other tutorials out there on how to do it.
But, since you asked, here is how I made my upholstered box spring. And of course, it’s no-sew. If I don’t have to sew – I don’t!
