Guest Bedroom re-do: The Reveal!

So, after 2 gallons of paint, and lots of rain, here is our new and improved guest bedroom!



Because we are watching our budget, everything you see is something that we already had. At the moment, it's a little bland.... but I'm going to keep my eye out for maybe a darker blue printed pillow, or fabric I could use to make one. I also need to get another curtain panel from Pottery Barn for the window. The sheer I thought I was going to use was supposed to be "ivory" - it was more like yellow! So for now, old mini-blinds will have to make due.

I'd also love to find some more artwork, or something, to put on the walls. Below is a painting that Chris' grandmother did. It is one of his favorites, and so was included in the room. I do like how it adds a pop of color to the room.


Here is some more details of the bed, after I was finished "antiquing" (Is that even how you spell it???).



Our first "visitor"! Rascal gave it his wag of approval.


All in all, I am very pleased with how the new room looks. Is it 100% "done"?? No, but the extra "stuff" are things I can look for at my own pace. Some accessories, more artwork, a curtain.... But it is so much nicer than it was just 2 weeks ago, and I no longer feel like I'm banishing guests to the junk-room!
Total cost of this project? Less than $50 + lots of elbow grease.

Looks great. And of course the dog paw of approval is always the most important.

The painting looks lovely too. I'm digging the gorgeous blue landscape.

Love it. I'm such a huge fan of antiquing. I wish we had a guest room so I could go all shabby chic in it. To me antiquing and shabby chic go hand in hand.
