Guest Bedroom Top 11 Must Haves

When Billy and I met we always would talk about how fun it would be to run a bed and breakfast together one day. Well here we are 8 years later with about as close as you can get to one! Our guest bedroom has seen many travelers from a far. Family members, old roommates and dear friends from all across the states.  We love to tell stories, share a meal and take our guests around town- so with that we often find our little “Nason Ranch” frequent with guests. Which only means we need to have a room that is inviting and homey. Not quite what the below pics are showing (insert embarrassed emoji).

Yep pretty bland if you ask me.

So today we zest. We zest the ultimate guest bedroom.

Remember this shutter I sprayed last week for some picture displays?

Now to give this canvas I made a few months back a make over. If you noticed my bed does not have a headboard, I desperately need to give a statement piece to that wall. Canvas to the rescue!

Now to make a game plan, I am thinking I will do one of my fun accent walls like what I did here but mix it up with scallops, tutorial on how to make this wall coming soon!

Start with finding the center of the room, and then measuring for what you would like your headboard to be…

OOoooOOOO gotta love that pop of blue!

Yep, tackled those scallops too. Hold tight for the tutorial to come! In the mean time onto some other zesty touches. Like these new lampshades I scored at the goodwill outlet for $2, I was tired of the bell shaped ones and wanted to add a more modern touch.

But why not add some color?

My favorite color, mustard yellow!

Kristi helped paint the shades, it worked so well and gave a cool texture too!
