Our Boring Spare Bedroom

Our spare bedroom has been neglected. It wasn't until this summer that we managed to get some furniture to fill up the space. The result is a hodgepodge of pieces from my single lady days, including a too small night stand and a tiny chair.

I decided to spruce it up on the cheap. I will share with you a little bit of my progress. I attempted to change the dorm room decor above the dresser. (I have already used the canvases for a different project in the room. I am just waiting for the handy man to hang them)

I found this guy at Michaels for $1.50 I liked his swirls and figured I could give him a makeover.

I stumbled upon this pretty mirror at an antique store. I only paid $22 for this monstrosity. It is big and HEAVY. Because of its weight and size, I postponed hanging it on the wall. I am still debating whether or not I want to paint it. Any suggestions on a color?

I used these rubber grippers to prevent the mirror from sliding off the dresser.

The room still has a long way to go. Hopefully it's starting to look like an adult lives here. I will keep you posted on my other spare bedroom projects.


  1. I have the exact same guest bedroom it seems! I like what you've done so far - good job!

  2. Just popped in from the Confessional Tuesday link-up. I love how your little bird turned out. (I've had a thing for short, fat birds lately, so he makes my heart happy.) I love the shape of that mirror! A cream color like you've done with the bird would look cool on the mirror, especially with a bit of a distressed finish, but I like how the darker color contrasts with the bird if you leave the mirror where it is.

  3. What a great mirror and a great price! Ha ha! bowl of Ramen and 3 ring binder! awesome :)

  4. It's looking great! I LOVE these kinds of projects!! Your bird looks really good painted white, and I like the mirror as is. Of course, depending on what your accent colors in the room will be, you could always paint it something that would really make it stand out! Looking forward to seeing what else you come up with.

  5. Hi Lynette! Your room in progress looks great so far! Thanks so much for dropping by and sharing at the Tuesday To Do Party!

  6. Love how its coming along! Thanks so much for linking up with us at Show & Share! Hope you’re joining us again this week!
