Guest Bedroom Before

The next room we'd like to address is our guest bedroom, which currently looks like this:

This room used to be our office but now it's our catchall room for miscellaneous items.

I love the double windows:

I don't really like the angled wall:

The room is a decent size and has a walk-in closet:

The closet is currently filled with books, decorative items, and homeless lamps. One day I'd like to fill it with built-ins. If built-ins aren't possible, I'd like to try and reconfigure the shelf layout.

If you're wondering, the dresser drawer is on the floor because I think I broke the track it slides on and I haven't had a chance to fix it yet ;)

This wall could be a great feature wall but it's currently holding items I plan on donating:

The room is also home to a random assortment of frames and mirrors:

As well as a couple of chairs...

And some large pieces of art.

If I'm being honest, I'm not entirely sure what I want to do with the room. We haven't had a guest spend the night in the 2 years we've lived here (and I don't think that's changing any time soon) so turning it into a bedroom that will never be used seems a little silly.

I've thought about turning the room into a studio space where I can work on projects since I currently work on them at our dining room table. I could include a daybed that would be great for seating and function as a bed in the event that we do have an overnight guest.

I'll be clearing everything out of the room and painting it this weekend so stay tuned!

  1. I have to tell you that I want to go shopping in your miscellaneous items' room. There are so many pretty things! Can't wait to see what you'll do with it

  2. Love the daybed idea so you can get some use out of the room :) Exciting!

  3. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  4. We have a third bedroom in very similar shape. We're thinking about making it a guest room/office/storage space. The main buy would be a daybed. Good luck!

  5. I have a catch-all room like that too that is our "guest room". It's a disaster and is SO packed you cannot walk into it. I better get on that. Eeeeeeeeek!

  6. oh we have a bedroom that has become the extra room too. someday it will be a baby room, but until then it stores all of our extra stuffs!!

  7. I had a room and a closet like this lol. I loved going shopping in it but all too often it became an overflow area. I love the idea of a studio though!

  8. You have more cute things in your guest bedroom than I have in my WHOLE house! Will you adopt me? ;)

  9. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that hoards decor. You have it contained in a room. Mine is currently all over the house.

  10. I love the idea of a studio. I'm right there with you. I'm always sprawled out all over the place when working on a project. Although, for me, a workspace in the garage always seems a little more practical since my projects are usually involving spray painting and power tools. I'm sure you could come up with a really functional storage solution for all homeless lamps and such.
