Be our Guest

We are cleaning/organizing/decorating our guest room this weekend in preparation for Nate's sister to move in for a couple months and first on our list of "things to buy" is a dresser for her. The guest room closet is packed full of our stuff, so I doubt she will be able to use it (sorry sis!).

 I have a soft spot for the Ikea Hemnes collection (our bedside tables and downstairs coffee table are Hemnes) so I am leaning towards buying this dresser for the guest room. (undecided on white or brown)

I follow a blog about re-doing furniture and I fell completely in love with this dresser that she rescued and updated. I wish it was still for sale! That would have been perfect for the guest room. 

I hate the bed frame that is currently in our guest room (the color is the light beachy brown wood, yuck)- but it matches the bedside table and the desk... so if we changed the bed, I'd have to essentially change everything. 

Things I may add/change this weekend besides the new dresser: the room could use a rug, I might hang curtains (it has one small window so we will see), and hang something on the bare walls.  I need to sew new covers for the throw pillows on the bed because we recently updated the duvet cover in there. I also think I'll pick up a new sheet set or two. Everyone loves new sheets. 

What else should we do to make sure she feels welcome and comfortable in her new room?
