Is a penny earned spent...At least it seems that way in my household!
But this time, I refuse to have buyer's remorse. I've had my eye on this particular piece of furniture for my guest bedroom for over a year now, and I've got the Inspiration Board to prove it!
There she is...my Besta Burs desk from Ikea! She's the besta both worlds (pun intended)! A desk that is not too wide (which leaves the room feeling spacious), but one that also gives plenty of surface space because of her length.
Eventually, the plan is to move my "head-board" mirrors over onto this wall, which would make my Besta into a comfortable place for guests to get ready in the morning. We only have the one guest bathroom, so this would allow guest to put on make-up, style their hair, etc. even if the bathroom is occupied.
Another reason why I am so excited about this purchase is because my green lamps finally have a place to call home! It's been a while since I gave these lamps their much needed makeover, and ever since they've just floated around my house from one-room-to-another. Yet, all the while they were intended to be in this room, on this table...just as you see them in these photos!
It definitely brings some satisfaction when you finally see an part of your plan come together. Especially after you've saved your pennies up for that exact piece. It even makes me happy when I walk past that room in the hallway and I catch a glimpse of my new Besta Burs. I'm seriously so pathetic sometimes! Ha!
Since my guest room is only 10'x12' it's difficult to take a photo of everything as it's laid out in the room...so, I thought it might be helpful to give you a space-plan view. It seems like we've been adding a lot of furniture into that room, but the space still feels open and spacious because of the way we have everything laid out.
Currently, we just have a double bed in the guest room. At first I wondered if it would feel too crowded if we upgraded to a queen-size, but now that each of the pieces are in place I can see that the room could definitely accommodate the larger sized mattress. Which, if you are ever a guest in my home I think you'd probably appreciate (unless you like to snuggle)!
Has anyone else splurged on an item that they've been saving up for?
