Be Our Guest


We're on the verge of finally getting our guest bedroom repainted and redecorated - yay! I'm trying to get ideas of the finishing touches that I want to add to the room, so of course, I headed over to pinterest. I know for sure that I want some kind of sign that says "be our guest", but I can't decide where to put it or what kind I want. 
I really love this idea and the look of it, but I'm not sure where it would actually go. It's a bit of a big accessory for the size of our guest room. We don't really have a large surface to set this on without it looking awkward or too large. Darn. On to the next idea...
This would be much more doable, and super easy to do. The letters are big enough that it would make a statement, and I could paint it whatever color that I wanted to make it stand out. 
I really love the idea of a print that says this, but I think it would need to be much larger than this one. And then would be the decision of which wall to put this on? Because I want the phrase to be one of the first things our guests will see when they enter the room. But there are some super cute options on Etsy!
I really love this option - it would be dead center when you walk in and pretty large. We have a stripe painted in the top portion of our wall, so it would have to be pretty strategically placed. This is definitely one of my more favorite options. 
I love love love this idea of a welcome basket, regardless of where the "be our guest" goes. My mother in law always has these cute little baskets in the bathroom and I just think its the cutest thing. And, I have actually used things out of it when I forget my own. So this is definitely in the works for the guest bedroom.
Do any of you have any favorite parts of your guest rooms?

  3. I love the idea of a little welcome basket - that would be so sweet! You could always go the chalkboard route and then you'd be able to customize to each guest!! Love the printable idea as well if you don't have a ton of space!

  6. I love the idea of the big statement letters and I also think the picture frame with the print looks cute and you could always make a bigger one. I can't wait until we move to a bigger place with a guest room.

  7. I love the 2nd one with the shelf! Depending on what else you want in the room, you could put some books on it, and hang a cute little sign on it! Good luck deciding!!

  16. Love making a guest room that much more 'homey' with a cute print or sign like you've posted. I need to get more organized but do keep lots of little samples in our guest bathroom for 'just in case'. And I've read to keep lots of extra TP in the cabinents so no one is embarrassed to ask for more hah.
