    and I hope my DDH is going to be understanding! lol! :roll:

    Our son moved and we ended up with his queen size bed for our guest room. Wonderful for us but then of course...that meant a mini-makeover for the room! So, it was only going to be 3 little decorative pillows. (I have 2 done and one to go). But now the little pillows seem lost in this sea of white...so I'm thinking I now "need" a bed runner for the foot of the bed. Then the wall at the head of the bed seems so bare...so it seems a wall hanging will also be "needed". ;)

    What do you think? Think a bed runner and a wall hanging would be too much...or just the right touch for this guest room mini-makeover?

    Thanks for your input! Karen

    I think you have identified the needs quite nicely. This will make a most welcoming room for your guests with your "needed" additions. I am sure your DDH will understand when he sees the lovely room you will create. Go girl (smile)! Share the pics!!!

    Beautiful quilt isn't it? But would you believe that I got this at Target a couple of years ago?! I won't feel so bad if I cover it...

    I love your pillows, very fun. Yes, a bed runner and quilt for the wall will be wonderful additions, and fun to create too!

    I agree, you are just wanting to add some color and that works.

    I too think a hanging & bed runner would look nice. It will be very chic with it all coordinating!

    The quilt is gorgeous, just gorgeous. It needs a bed runner to protect it.

    I think a bed runner and wall hanging would be perfect for a mini-makeover.

    You are doing a wonderful job with the mini make-over. Wallhanging definitely.
