When we moved at the beginning of the summer, we moved from a three bedroom home to a four bedroom home. We have a guest room currently and it is set up almost exactly as it was in our previous home, except for the pretty patterned chair doesn't fit with the layout so it got bumped to our bedroom, which I'm not hating. I also had to replace those curtains since the new room has two sets of single windows instead of one double and added a couple more throw pillows.
Our fourth bedroom has just sat empty for months now. It didn't seem that we should invest in furniture for it since we aren't sure what its permanent purpose will be. I hope we'll be fortunate enough to have a second child one day.
I hate that the room is sitting empty with the door closed, though, because it gets such pretty light in the room. We do sometimes host more than one set of guests at a time when friends from college are in town or around the holidays so we decided we'd like to make it a temporary guest room for the time being.
Corey's mom is in the process of moving to Charlotte and she has some extra furniture. My mom also had an extra headboard that was used in my grandmother's home so we are hoping to piece together a room with these pieces to give the space purpose without breaking the bank.
This room certainly won't look like its out of a magazine but I am happy we'll have another comfortable space for guests. Here are a few of my favorite guest bedrooms.
