Guest room makeover reveal

Welcome to the Easter weekend everyone!  I hope you're having a great time with family and friends, taking time off from work, and reflecting on the sacrifice and gift that Easter symbolises.

I didn't mention earlier, but we had a deadline on our guest room makeover.  The Big Fella's parents are here for the Easter weekend because it's the Little Big Fella's birthday on Easter Monday this year.

So, as promised, I have the end reveal photos for you all!

Here's a reminder of what we started with:

Drum roll please!

Ta da!!!!

We tried to include as much as we could without over-crowding the room.

All of the drawers and cupboards are empty and will remain that way so guests can empty their bags and feel completely at home.  And there's plenty of room under the bed for suitcases or shoes or whatever while they're here.

We didn't quite get to it, but we have a wrought iron rail that we plan to install and hang a few wooden coat hangers, for those things that really don't want to be in drawers.

Obviously we've got the lamp, mirror, clock and tissues, but we've also included a USB charger in the wall next to the power points.  Here's a close-up:

This way there's no need to search around the house for somewhere to re-charge your phone/s, tablet/s, fitbit or whatever.  And no need to fight for charging time with all of the stuff that we've always got plugged in!

Our first guests have said that the bed is quite comfy.  And we've provided a selection of pillow heights and weights without adding a billion that you have to put somewhere while you sleep!

So, what do you think?  Who's coming to stay???
