Well I am officially calling phase 1 of the guest room DONE! There is still several things I eventually want to tackle in here in phase 2– new fan/lighting, an accent wall behind the bed, new paint on the wall, and some better art but for now it is put together, pretty, and functional enough that I feel like I can have guests stay here. And way better than the way it was when we moved in. So let’s take a tour and then I’ll show you the before and after at the end of the post.
For now I hung my $4 DIY sunburst mirror over the bed. And I found a pair of curtains on clearance at TJMaxx for $15 that work well in here. You can see the kids farmhouse table that I recently refinished in the corner.
The blue and white pillow was a recent Goodwill find – still looking for maybe a few other blue and white pillows to replace some other ones on the bed.
This refinished painted nightstand works so well in here! I just love it.
I want this room to have a bit of an industrial farmhouse feel and it is definitely getting there with gray furniture, dark metal bed frame, and white bedding.
Here’s the other side of the room – a BHG cubicle unit holds lots of toys and books while still looking pretty in the room.
So let’s go back and see the before – this is what the room looked like when we bought the house.
And here it is now!
Here’s this view of the before…
How it looked back in December before I started working on it…
And how it looks now! Other than the curtains I didn’t buy anything new for this room. I painted a dresser, painted a nightstand, repainted the headboard, and rearranged and redecorated the room using things that were already in the room or that I had.
One more before from December…
And how it looks now. Once again, I just hung the curtains, painted the table and chairs, redecorated, and cleaned things up a bit.
My cat is surely enjoying the room in between guests and my nephew using it.
There is a bird feeder hanging right outside this window and he loves to take his nap on the bed while bird watching between snoozes.
