In the last few days, our guest room/office has been transformed from a junk room to an actual office space and then a guest room. Granted we only moved this quickly because we will be picking up our guest tomorrow afternoon.
I still have some finishing items to pick up tonight, so you will have to keep waiting for the final changes.
(I can't wait to have a real spare bedroom where we can have an actual bed and frame for guests rather than are amazing air mattress...it is amazing...its just an air mattress though.)
I also admit that I have been watching Supernatural off and on for some time now. Its a show that I will leave on while I am making dinner in the other room so I haven't been able to delve into the characters yet. But, I did think that the main character was being played by Chris Evans.... Well surprise, surprise! Dean Winchester is played by Jensen Ackles! So happy am I to find a new replacement for Chris Evans!
This procrastinator has a mother-in-law coming next week to stay with us and I need to feel like the guest room is presentable. Every time we've had guests stay in our office I feel this huge guilt trip before they arrive that it is more of a junk room/office than an office/guest room. Over time, I have pulled out some ideas from my sleeve but never acted on them (note the procrastinator bit).
So I am going to work my butt off to try and make this room more comfortable for our guest's three week long stay. Granted I will be working around some MAJOR issues:
Issue #1: The space is a rental so as much as I would love to shell out my own money to make the space my dream room, I refrain from changing pricey fixes.
Issue #2: Previous tenants painted the walls a dark orange
I recently spotted this entertainment center set-up in the new West Elm catalog and fell in love!!! I would love to convince the hubby to let me buy it (to replace the two stereo speakers we have lying on their sides and our fancy tv sitting on top), but it is a little pricey. To get the set shown would cost you about $1,097!
However, I also spotted THIS entertainment center set-up while browsing online at WorldMarket. Granted, there are some slight differences but it's still the look I love. And at around $629 it seems like a steal!

I am a master-mind at making lists of creative ideas but as of now I would need a stunt double to get them finished. If you're lucky you may see a few of these ideas pop up on my blog, Making Macy.
