Guest Room Update

The Guest Room redo is still rolling but I wanted to give you another peak.

The To Do List still includes: refinishing the existing dressers, re-covering a lamp shade, and making some decorative pillows with punches of red for the bed. But it has come a long way from what it looked like when we first moved in:

The golden paint color was a leftover color from the previous house. I switched it for a warmer brown. The curtains were updated with higher hung Vivian curtains from Ikea. And the boring flush mount light was replaced with the more natural textured fixture, also from Ikea. I'll have more on the other details that were added including a How-To on the pillows I'm working on.

But what do you think of the changes so far?


  1. Looks great!! Looking forward to the final project!!

  2. I love the shades - so calming.
    I've been back and forth to your blog page recently and am passing you on a nice little award that is doing the virtual rounds. Come visit my page, cut and paste the award and pass it on to other blogs you love!


  3. I'd say it's fabulous. I love the color scheme - seeing that little bit of the red rug, I can see how it's going to look when you add more red. Go, Christy!


I would love to hear what you have to say, but comments may be monitored for those few who are 'Debbie-Downers'. This is a creative outlet, I'm no expert, I just like to show others what I'm doing 'round the house. Like it or leave it.
