Creating a Guest Space when you don’t have Extra Room!

I am so excited – literally over the moon for today’s post! We don’t have an extra room for guests and we have a lot because all of our family lives out of town. So, after saving and searching we finally found a reasonable Murphy bed! It came from Costco of all places and they even have free shipping!

It did take a lot of assembly, but the instructions were pretty easy to understand. We are so happy with it! It was 1/3 the cost of other beds we had looked at.

I can’t turn the whole room into a guest room, since the bed is on a wall in the playroom. But I did take 1 shelf to dedicate to our guests!

I created this printable to put in a frame. You can write your wifi password on the actual printable or you can put it in a frame and write it on the glass with a dry erase marker.

Then I added a whole bunch of fun travel sized hygiene items that guests might need.

Now we have a fully functioning space for guests without sacrificing tons of space in our house!
