We added the pitcher, art and ladder later. We knew this room wouldn't be really finished without a mattress, but we had a plan for that. At least the room looked more pulled together and not purple. My mom came out to visit in May and we played up that the guest room was done except for a mattress, and the couch would have to do, made it sound like the living room was the place to be. When she arrived, we showed her this room last and said "Happy Mother's Day!" as she figured out that it wasn't an empty daybed anymore like she'd seen in pictures.
There's a full bathroom off this room in the office, so this "wing" is like a private suite. The mattress may have been a mother's day present, but we're very happy that we'll be able to have guests actually have a nice place to stay when they visit. Our next project with this room is to make a trundle bed. That way two people can stay on a mattress in this room, even if they're on different levels.
