A friend of mine recently asked me to help with her guest room, she's an awesome
designer, but was having trouble making it flow with the rest of her home.
Her plan was to keep it budget friendly by using a duvet, bed skirt and chair she'd had
for awhile. While I was scrolling through her Pinterest pins it hit me, her style had changed
since she originally purchased those pieces and they weren't her at all - no wonder
she was feeling stuck and uninspired by her options.
I sent her this inspiration pic and said, "This looks like you, we can get the look on a budget."
Her email back said, "Oooooh, I'm so excited!!!"
Here's the plan so far...

Btw, you all loved the tour of her home - Builder Beige to Black Beauty
that I shared here a couple years ago.
This was the duvet, bedskirt and chair she was originally trying to work with.

It's actually darker gray in person.
My friend Lisa's super reasonable IKEA Sconce Hack to mimic those beautiful brass sconces
is on our list.
A DIY Abstract Art similar to Jessie's.
I'm thinking one of these leather strap chairs that I shared with you in my
I Spy a Craigslist Buy post would be perfect.
And, did you notice the gorgeous molding in our inspiration photo, we haven't talked
about it but I know she'd be all over that!
I'll be sharing progress updates along the way and scouring Craigslist for some
nightstands or other unique pieces that might work.
Enjoy a wonderful long weekend with friends or family, some sunshine
and a BBQ sounds perfect to me! :)
I'll be taking off a few days after Memorial Day next week,
but will see you on Friday for Best of the Nest.
