Guest Bedroom Update

I am making progress on my guest bedroom. I decided to purchase a mattress online since the mattress we wanted was unable to be delivered. I hate asking friends with trucks for help, so I just went with buying one from Walmarts website. The mattress came rolled up in a bag...

I had never purchased something like this online before. I didn't really know what to except. I had a feeling that when we opened the plastic up covering the mattress all hell was going to break lose. I was right. To prepare for that, we laid the mattress on top of the bed frame and moved out of the way as the mattress flew open...

I wish I would of got better action shots of the mattress opening up. It was pretty funny. You can see Cody laughing in the picture above. If you ever buy a mattress like this, be careful! Get the heck out of the way!

Overall the mattress was cheap and you get what you pay for. It is very firm and uncomfortable. I went and purchased a memory foam topper for $30 at Walmart to add some cushion. Now I am just working on all the finishing touches in the room. I have nice white bedding that I purchased. Now I just need to find some bright colored pillows to brighten it up!

I forgot that I never shared a photo of the dresser I found for the bedroom... Guest Bedroom Dresser
It's a great mid-century piece. We paid $95 for it, which was more then I wanted to spend on a dresser for our guest room. We both love it though and sooner or later it will be used by us or a nursery if I ever decide to have a baby. I will post more pictures of it when I reveal the finished room!


  1. Its so funny I went "that would be awesome for a nursery!!!". LOL. Or maybe one day you'll paint it. Who knows. It's a great peice to have though!! I wish we had a guest room. Our spare room is a "man cave". :(

  2. Thanks Lucy! It is very cute.

    B., We have had a lot more "baby" talk, so I guess it was a way for us to justify buying the guest bedroom furniture. lol Sorry you have a man cave. I am glad Cody doesn't want one.
