To my dismay, Troy is against painting the walls of rooms. So, I had to add color in other ways. The hanging frames in the corner are from Ikea and I used coordinating papers to brighten them up. I also added some artwork and ribbon covered lampshades. However, my most proud accomplishment was the construction of a headboard using this tutorial. I actually built the headboard in one afternoon, but gathering all of the supplies was the real time consuming part.
Sometimes I get in these kicks where I want to change the look of a room. Then, the wheels in my head start spinning and I end up wanting to redo and update every room. We’ve been in our house for a year now, so the ideas for room transformations were bound to come. I’ve been changing around and adding things to almost every room, but one of the first rooms I wanted to tackle was the guest room. When we moved in, we threw a mattress in there with some bedding on it for when company came, but that was about it. I wanted to make the room a little nicer and add a dresser for clothes since the closet is full of my craft supplies. Of course, once I got going, I couldn’t just stop with the dresser. So, I embellished a bit more.
The rocking chair is now an addition to the guest room as well because I am transforming Blake’s room into a big boy room. That room isn’t quite finished yet. I’m trying to convince my husband to let me paint it. I think that brightly printed walls should just be a part of a child’s bedroom. I picked up the wooden lanterns forever ago and didn’t have a place for them until now. I had to get out the hot glue gun for repairs because my toddler slightly destroyed them, but I think they fit perfectly. That white wall needs something still.
I also painted, papered, and sanded some wooden mirror frames.
They actually hang next the to the mirror in the guest bathroom, but I couldn’t get a shot of the bathroom and frames at the same time.
So, everyone should come visit us and stay in our revamped guest room. We love company!
