Sharon, For many years we had a donated dresser in there. It was a high dresser with seven drawers - not exactly what a guest room needs. A guest who stays there every now and then was frustrated by not having a desk to put her computer on. She gave us $500 to buy guest room furniture. We bought the desk and drawers at Ikea. There aren’t many drawers, but it’s enough for people staying only a few days. If you have an Ikea within a reasonable distance it’s a great place to get inexpensive and decent looking furniture.
