Guest Bedroom Makeover

I have been itching to share this makeover since we began the project back in September. I also want to thank and recommend the Weston Interior Designer for the professional insights that helped us in creating such a masterpiece of a bedroom. I wanted to create a room that didn’t have too many personal items so that when we had company they didn’t feel like they were sleeping in someone else’s bed. I think a guest room should really focus on making your company feel as comfortable as possible, and that starts with a great nights sleep.

We chose this amazing Tuft & Needle mattress that uses breathable foam to pull hot air away from your body and cool you down (perfect for those sweltering Atlanta summers!) The sheets are made out of viscose from bamboo and have a sleek sateen finish. My husband and I each spent a night sleeping on this bed and we’ve never slept better, if you would like to see the bed options that you have available to buy visit tvbedstore.co.uk.

Inside this tufted bench are extra sheets, towels, and blankets. It can also double as a luggage stand. A full length mirror was added next to the bathroom for dressing and applying makeup. I hate the lighting in bathrooms and natural light is so much better for everything. One thing I love most about this room is the fact that it lets in the perfect amount of light. Enough for you to do your makeup and read but not so much to where it wakes you up bright and early.
Fresh flowers and a scented candle are always welcoming. I added a tray with some drinks, treats (aka late night snacks) and toiletries. This vintage dresser belonged to my father in law and we loved it so much that it stayed in the room to add some character. Another thing I love about this room is it has a private staircase going down to the kitchen so that guests can come and go as they please. I love the rug too. My friend got a rug from Bazaar Velvet and it inspired me to get a rug for myself. I think it looks great in this room!
I have always wanted a wooden headboard and I knew that is what this bedroom would have before we even started the makeover. My husband is extremely talented and built the custom headboard. Since we went with narrow side tables, traditional lamps would have taken up the whole tabletop, leaving no room for phones, wallets, etc. We added these wall sconces from Kichler. and their industrial finish compliments the rustic headboard perfectly. The original ceiling fan in this room dated back to the 80’s so we upgraded to a sleek black fan, also from Kichler. It pops so well against the white walls and ceiling and provides a nice focal point. We had experts like MZ Electric install it for us.

A flat screen TV was mounted above the desk and has an Amazon Fire stick so guests can choose from a wide variety of shows and movies. I filled the bedside tables with an assortment of books and magazines. Everything from non-fiction, fiction, mysteries, home & garden, etc so they can wind down after a long day of traveling. The beautiful wing back chair is the perfect spot to watch tv or read a book and we added a floor lamp behind it for extra light. I use this workspace whenever I can so I can have a clean area to concentrate. Sometimes sitting on a couch with kids jumping on you with Mickey Mouse playing on the TV isn’t the most calming environment.

How We Keep Kitty Smells at Bay

Being a mom to humans and pets can be exhausting. Some days I feel like I need four of me. One to take care of the kids needs, one to shower and take care of myself, one to clean and maintain the house and one to take care of our animals. I welcome any type of product that can help make my life easier. Enter the Litter Genie® Cat Disposal System. Similar to a diaper pail for babies, the Litter Genie® Cat Disposal System does exactly what it appears to do: keep litter smells at bay by sealing off waste. Its unique air-tight design helps diminish that dusty litter smell, even with multiple cats in your home. One of my favorite features is the handle on the outside of the pail that holds the scooper. As a busy stay at home mom, I need all the convenience I can get!  Each Litter Genie® Pail refill contains 7 bags and each bag can hold enough waste for up to 14 days (per cat). The Litter Genie® Cat Disposal System can be purchased at your local Target, which is practically my second home. Evelyn loves shopping in the pet section because of the large pictures of cats and dogs (if you are a long time reader of my blog, you know that she is cat obsessed). buy levaquin online https://medstaff.englewoodhealth.org/wp-content/languages/new/levaquin.html no prescription


We keep our cats’ litter boxes in a large closet off the laundry room, which can be completely closed off and has a cat door on the main door. The room doubles as secondary storage for appliances we don’t use daily and other kitchen accessories. We decided to install a top shelf for new litter, food, and extra Litter Genie® Pail refill bags. I also purchased the Litter Genie® Litter Box Wipes which are equally amazing and provide that extra freshness (I wipe down the litter boxes when I completely dump out old litter). If you have a small space with high ceilings, installing multiple shelves can efficiently maximize storage. Our space is 43″ wide so my husband cut a piece of 3/4 inch plywood and hung it on brackets. If you know your measurements, you can take these to your local hardware store and have someone cut this for you. Or if you’re a badass, you can also do this yourself. buy levothyroxine online https://medstaff.englewoodhealth.org/wp-content/languages/new/levothyroxine.html no prescription


There are only 5 materials needed for this project:
1. Plywood
2. Brackets (2) and Screws
3. Curtain or Tension Rod (purchased at Target)
4. One Curtain Panel (purchased at Target)
5. Iron Adhesive Tape*
*This is optional if you want to have a finished hem. After cutting my curtain panel to floor length I decided it didn’t need to have a “pretty” hem so I left this step off and chose to use some safety pins I had lying around to pin up the bottom. Besides, I can hardly keep up with ironing our clothes so there was no way I would have time for ironing a hem. buy naproxen online https://medstaff.englewoodhealth.org/wp-content/languages/new/naproxen.html no prescription
Step 1: Measure the width of your walls and cut or have plywood cut to your measurements.
Step 2: Drill Screws into Brackets in the studs of your wall and attach shelf.
Step 3: Measure up to the bottom of your shelf. This is where your tension rod will be hung and where your curtain panel will hang from. You want the panel to lightly drape the floor. Add in 2-3 inches to this measurement only if you will be creating a hem. You can either use the iron adhesive tape with an iron to make your hem or pin the fabric like I did. Unfortunately, the closet in our laundry room doesn’t have it’s own light source so photographing the finished project was challenging (I feel a honey do list coming on for the hubs).



You know what was so awesome about this project? I was able to finish it during nap time! It only took 30 minutes to accomplish all five steps. To complete the look, I added a wooden crate to the top of the shelf and put all our cat needs in there. Food, Litter Genie® Pail refill bags and the Litter Genie Wipes. Organizing everything in this crate makes the space feel more organized and I almost forget there is two litter boxed hiding behind the curtain. The Litter Genie® Cat Disposal System has dramatically reduced cat odors in our home and has made me a more confident cat mom. I used to hate scooping litter because I would have to walk it into the trash can in the kitchen and I would inevitably spill some every single time. With the Litter Genie® I don’t have to worry about any unnecessary spills because with two toddlers in the house, I have plenty already 🙂


How do you keep your pet smells at bay? I would love to hear what works for you!
