Guest Bedroom Reveal

I am super excited to show the after pictures of the guest bedroom that I was hired to redecorate. So excited that I am not going to share a lot and just show the pictures! Let's start.

Before: The original paneling and short window coverings.
After: The bed was moved to the window wall and the entire wall was draped in sheet-curtains for a dramatic effect. Still need to get two matching lamps for the side tables. And there is the burlap M that was supposed to be a pillow which is now framed and hung on the wall.

Before: Original paneling and closet doors.
After: The closet doors were painted the same color as the wall to blend them in. The knobs were spray painted chocolate brown, and so was the mirror frame.

Before: A handy built-in desk.
After: The desk area was painted the same color as the wall. Also, the dresser was moved from the closet wall to this wall by the desk, which is at the foot of the bed. Still need to get a better chair for the desk, and excuse the paint cans and supplies.

Before: Short window coverings made the windows appear smaller than they really are.
After: This window got the same sheet-curtains as the wall behind the bed. The curtain rod was mounted at the ceiling to make the window appear larger. And you can see that the bed was moved from beside the window to the adjacent wall.

And one more of the curtain wall, new bedding and ceiling fan.

I love the transformation of this room! Between the paint color and the draped wall behind the bed, the original paneling disappears. The room feels much larger with the new furniture placement and it is so warm and inviting with the rich chocolate brown curtains, caramel paint, and a splash of dark red in the bedding.

And of course it was a thrifty make over. The most expensive aspect of this project was the paint - but it was so worth it! Total room project costs was $200, Woo hoo!!!

Psst - Here is the original room, here is phase 1, and this is the post about the burlap m and the love pillow.

Beautiful! Does this happen to be a mobile home? I ask because I have a similar room in our new to us "snowbird" home in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. What a great idea on the curtain placment...that goes in my idea file.

No, it's not a mobile home. It is a rancher, built either late 60's or 70's.

It's really very complicated in this full of activity life to listen news on Television, thus I only use web for that purpose, and get the latest information.

Love the outcome after you renovate the room, from old fashion room to modern and simple room. And the $200 room cost renovation is really incredibly great!
