Guest bedroom in the making

Saturday morning I was up and rearing to go shortly after 7am (I fail terribly at sleeping in anymore!)

For some reason I was in a cleaning/organizing mood, so I decided to tackle the guest bedroom.

What was once this (photos from the MLS listing before I bought the house)Has gotten freshly refinished floors, new paint and an overall attitude change. The guest bedroom has now become this...


The iron bed was my grandpas when he was a child, it's the bed that I used all growing up. I need to get curtains of some sort, and a mirror to go above the vanity (and a chair for that too ha!)

I'm thinking that gold light fixture needs a good dose of spray paint, and a big cushy rug wouldn't hurt anything? Hmm...

I think it's on the right track though! Much better than the bright pink in my opinion!

Such a peaceful space - I'm sure your guests will appreciate it! I really like the fact that you're using what you have and re-purposing items for your new home. Keep the pictures coming!

that rooms looks amazing!! I still haven't fully tacky my guestroom and I've been living in my house for almost 3 years! I think the light would be very cute with a little spray paint!

It looks a bazillion times better! I love it :) You should spray paint the light fixture black. I think it would look nice.

Laura said...

Oooh, I love that paint color! And I agree, I think the light fixture would look awesome spray painted black - It would match the bed frame!
