In two weeks, our two guest bedrooms are going to be ours again! My brother has been living with us while saving for a home of his own so he is living in one room and all of our ‘stuff’ combined has been occupying room number two. It will be quiet and lonely when he moves out but I am itching with plans for both rooms so here is what I want to do with the first room…

This is one of the pictures I found for my St. Patrick’s Day inspired rooms. I love, love, love it! We already have the green paint and I am currently obsessed with white in rooms – this is perfect for us.

I love reading what Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick is up to and trying out in her house. She is obsessed with molding, as am I. The guest bedroom doesn’t have any so that will be project number one! Sarah started her molding projects with a $14 miter box and a hammer and nails. My mom and I are up for the challenge of installing our own molding and luckily can use her compressed nail gun instead of just a hammer and nails!

What room isn’t complete without bedding? We have a double bed already for the room but have no bedding. My absolute favorite is the pintucked bedding from Anthropologie. The price however is ridiculous! I hate how expensive pretty bedding is so thanks to kojodesigns, we will be making this for $30 instead of $248. $30!!! I mean, get out of town!

Stick around, I’ll show you the steps to getting this dream guest bedroom and should have some fantastic stories of our attempts at these projects!

Today, I am currently coveting this dress from Anthropologie.

I love everything about it, including the pattern, shape and v-neck scoop! It is gorgeous and has just enough drape with just enough dressy to be perfect for any event this summer. I think I’ve found this year’s birthday dress! (Yes, I know. My birthday is June 18 but it is never too early to plan!)

Anthropologie is one of the greatest stores ever! Not only do they have some of the best clothing and home goods, they always have amazing front window displays.

This month, Anthropologie teamed up with the Cork Forest Conservation Alliance and Kendall-Jackson to help recycle wine corks and celebrate Earth Day! It is so impressive to see what they could do with the plain, brown corks.

Each store across the country has a different display. Anthropologie’s page on Facebook highlights some of the best of the best. The colors of this one are so impressive and gorgeous!

I spy lots of orange! I know I’m going to love this one.

Incredible! I love the way the cork display colors and patterns are tied into the outfits on display in front.

This one is beautiful! They used things from nature (plants, etc) mixed in with the corks to create the pattern and texture.

I want to make this one!! I wonder how I could do it? It gives me something to look forward to once we have collected enough corks. We’re starting over on our collection since I finished our cork mirror in the kitchen.

The smaller spheres combined with the bigger ones plus the plant life spilling out is over the top! I love the dress they have in front of it, too. Such a show-stopping display!

If you have an Anthropologie near you, what does your display look like? Send me a picture, I would love to see it!
