My friend, Debbie (you met her last year), who lives out in the country recently married off child #2 and is now officially an empty nester. She decided she wouldn’t waste anytime in converting her son’s upstairs bedroom to a guestroom, keeping the bunkbeds that her boys grew up on. One of these days, they will hopefully have some grandkids who will visit and this will be the perfect space for some kidlets to play. Debbie and her daughter, Tiffany, did a great job with making this a special little bedroom now, with a lodgey look that Smokie the Bear would be proud of . The main color in the room is Grape Leaves (a Behr color & on the same color strip as my laundryroom green, Grasscloth).
They did a brown accent wall and Tiffany used the trees in the blanket as inspiration for painting some trees on the wall. I thought that was a brilliant accent and a fun whimisical idea for the room. This old oak wall unit was transformed with 2 colors of paint.
And she took out the old dated glass that was in the doors and added beadboard. Great idea for an out-dated piece of furniture.
You can see where the tree shape idea came from…the pillow sham. Isn’t it the cutest?
She had no trouble finding lodge and camping signs in the stores. I love this one…don’t we need one of these for our home too?

I loved Debbie’s cute little lodge guestroom. And I’m sure when she has grandchildren, they will love it too! Hope you enjoyed seeing something a little bit different too that might give you some inspiration for a kid’s room.
