Guest Bedroom Plans

Here is our guest bedroom before we moved in. Not much has changed since then except for the addition of a bed, a pair of dressers and clutter.

We did replace the ceiling fan with something a little smaller and plan to paint the walls a dark beige and a chocolate brown accent wall.

I recently purchased this quilt coverlet from Target and love the vintage feel of it.
And once the flea markets start up again I'll be on the look out for something similar to this dresser. I love the chipped paint and the gold mirror above it.

Nursery at 98%

Our vintage truck-themed nursery is almost done. All that's left is painting the window trim white and hanging the roman shades.

We have one more baby shower this weekend, as well, so more goodies will be added :)

Here's what we have at the moment:

Vintage truck theme
Ikea shelves were added above the armchair.
The slipcovered armchair.
A closer look at the fabric. My mom made the pillow that sits on the chocolate brown houndstooth chair.
Some truck-themed items sit amongst books on the shelves. The gas pump is a piggy bank :)
Gotta have a toy truck.
Vintage truck artwork.
A cute basket to holds some stuffed animals.
The wall decal I found on Etsy.
I love the look!
The truck-themed quilt my mom made. It even has our family dog riding in the back :)
And the picture that inspired the whole room theme: Papa in his 1950's Chevy truck.

And that's the nursery! Just one more week and we can call it DONE! And just in arrives in 4 weeks or so :)
