GUEST BEDROOM MAKE~OVER RESULTS!!

So here it is ....finally!! Again this post is long with lots of pics! Click on pics to enlarge and read captions! You don't wanna miss a thing right?Blah~ boring bedroom with freebie furniture...

I had been trying to figure out how I could make the furniture work so I wouldn't have to run out and buy anything right now. Paint was the obvious choice...you'll see in a sec...
The mattress propped up against the wall is now INSIDE the closet! Can't believe it fit either!


Just a bunch of mix and match stuff with no personality. I had been wanting to get this done for ages and we had company coming from Ohio~Bob and Karen! Karen was (an still is!) one of my SUPER ALL TIME BEST CUSTOMERS when I had my shop in Ohio. She was so sweet to want to come down and see my place down here. I loved having them and their visit was just the motivation I needed to get it done. Honestly it took a day~ that's it. Tweeking on the other had continues!!
So are you ready for the afters?? Let's go............



The wall color I totally snagged from my dear friend Wendy. She has a room painted this color and she was kind enough to share. It is Simply Gray from Waverly available at Lowes....






Here's the dresser re-do.......




coat rack cribbed from my master bedroom.....






You should have seen me trying to get this duvet cover on....picture a WWF match up with me getting my butt kicked. I FINALLY got the thing on and love it but dang!







the headboard re-do and the stinky little expensive impulse purchase antique toile chair.







just REST.....ahhhhhhhhhh










here is alot of my favs...the table, the cupboard, the stool, the chippy box, the letters, birds and tiny little antique mirror ( a 1.00 yard sale find)










mix match frames add dimension...











these letters can also be hung, which may happen when I get the tweeking done












the mirror is just too darn cute













bargain corner!














the table I had in the back corner of the garage for the LAST FIVE YEARS! Ugh! So HAPPY to have it inside again!















the picture above the bed used to hang in my dining room in Ohio....

















this wall will be getting more mirrors eventually when I find the right ones. Liz Claiborne garage sale hat .50.

















Well there you have it! I can't tell you how happy I am to get this room done! It has a personality now and I can continue to tweek it as I want. I do have an old feedsack pillow I am working on for the bed. This make-over cost about $65.00 for the paint for the walls, bed and dresser, the valances I picked up at a yard sale and the duvet cover. The other items I had around the house and had purchased over time. I am linking this to Kathleens White Wednesday over at Faded Charm. Please enjoy all the other wonderful white always on display over there.
Also, MANY THANKS to all of you who have left such nice comments and continue to inspire me with all your heartfelt goodness!
Have a blessed day!

Amazing what you accomplished with a minimal investment. Love the shade of gray you chose; it really says "restful".

I think when you really put your mind to redecorating and start looking around the house for things you already have that you never noticed would work before, that the space turns out with a better outcome and you love it even more because you used the things that you bought and loved for a reason.
I hope all of your guest love all the work you have done for the room!

This is beautiful, Beth! You have so many great little details in there especially the mirrors and that chippy cupboard. Very nice! I feel so guilty for putting my guests on an aero bed in the craft room! I do dress it up with fluffy white pillows and a duvet (totally with you on that process) though!

Faded Charm said...

Loving it all Beth....especially how the black really pops in the photos. Also love the wall color. I just took a peek at your other blog and saw the awesome pillow. What a great addition!

Take care,

Kathleen

Hi Beth,
What a wonderful transformation! I love it all - the wall color, the black furniture, the chair and for some reason I think that old worn mirror on the dresser is my fav. You really did a great job. I also checked out you kitchen re-do. Love the wainscotting. You're right, it's such an inexpensive way to make a major change that gives such a classic vintage feel. You've done a wonderful job on everything. I look forward to seeing what you do next! (btw, came over from Faded Charm)

Blessings,
Missy
