Of all of the rooms in my home, the Guest bedroom is the room of which I am most proud. I wanted to create this beach-like or Cape Cod environment, a relaxing vibe. I think part of the concept was derived from wanting to incorporate white linens. I mean, something that can be bleached in between guests so each guest feels that their linen is spotless. I find myself often walking into the room just to get a quick feel of the relaxation. However, there was one problem. If I walk in and face the bed, everything thing looked great, but if I rotate 180 degrees, there was just this bare wall. I could not figure out what was missing. My dilemma was trying to figure out what I can add to a blank wall for an insanely cheap price.
I couldn’t decide what to add, but finally it hit me. I recalled the framed mirrors that are sold at Ikea. They offer a variety of colors, but the best is the unfinished wood which allows you to paint whatever colors. The mirrors are only $2.99 and I happened to have leftover white paint from house painting. The next dilemma to address was how I would hang it. I pictured a rope type of apparatus like something you’d see on a boat dock. Well one Micheal’s trip and coupon later, I found wired material that resmbled a rope and decided to use it. It was only $3 and change after the 50% off coupon. Less than 2 hours later my vacation getaway room was complete.
