because my house is relatively small (1,250 square feet!), everything has to have a place and there's not much room for extra. but! i love so many things! my neighbor called me an "opportunity shopper" - which, i'll be adding to the top of my personal resume, thanks.
my guest room has become the landing place for all the things i don't need rightthisminute... but it's been a lot of minutes, so it was due for deep clean and refresh.
functionally, all the pieces were there, but nothing fit just right. i upgraded the bed from a full to a queen a while ago, which made just a little too tight of a squeeze to access everything in storage. i purged and i prayed over what NEEDED to stay, knowing it was going to be whittled down to what i could fit into three shallow bookcases from walmart. since this was a blitz of weekend project, i knew i could count on walmart home to have all the supplies i needed in stock and available at my fingertips. what i've come to appreciate about walmart is that they've got the functional and decor items covered. it's form AND function which is what my house has to be about because it's so small.
95% of the time this room belongs to me but when the guests come to town, i want it to be a comfortable place to stay. the clean white linens serve as a much-needed calm foundation to an otherwise noisy room.
i'm happy to report i put the finishing touches on the guest room on sunday afternoon. hung a few frames to finish the gallery wall, tucked those hospital corners on the bed, and organized the ribbon supply for the next emergency party. and now i'm ready for my next round of guests!
