Jenna didn’t have much use for a guest room and filled this extra room sort of haphazardly. When it came time to sell the house, she decided to dress up the space as quickly and cheaply as possible.

From Jenna: The poor neglected guest room had been empty/unused the majority of the 2.5 years since buying the house, as guests normally used the daybeds downstairs.

At some point down the road we placed a mattress and bed frame, a couple of old night stands and a dresser in there and that’s about it. I never bothered painting or attempting to decorate as other projects took precedence.

Then the room was emptied as it came time to sell the house and I couldn’t simply ignore it. So I borrowed a bed, dresser and mirror, purchased an inexpensive rug, night stands, a chair and chandelier, and grabbed curtains, linens and picture frames from storage. The space was pulled together in a matter of days—and by far the most inexpensive “makeover” in the house.

Thank you, Jenna!
