Guest Room Before and After

Since the guest room was a pre-blog project I don't have any pictures of it in progress. Trust me when I say that every item in this room could be its own post! Here are the before and after pictures...I wanted this room to have a totally different color scheme and design than the rest of my house, and it certainly does!

The before..





and the after!




today is the day, black frame, yellow words


Update: Here is the link to the updated frame wall.

I can't decide what I love most about the room...the paint color, the awesome stripes, or the fabulous bird fabric on the front pillow. Let's just say everything in this room makes it my favorite guest room ever!

A beautiful transformation! The stripes are perfect for the color scheme. Did you make the bedding? The yellow adds a delightful pop to the gray.

Just found your blog. Gotta say...you must have watched and love The Christmas Story (hubby's fav Christmas movie). I say...um, type that because of the lamp. Fragile. Must be French...yep, I've watched it with him once or twice.

 
At February 7, 2012 at 12:46 PM , Blogger Ashley @ Domestic Imperfection said...

We are totally fans, we watch it every year! The leg lamp was actually a wedding gift from my BIL...we've been married for almost eight years now and that lamp has always been a little awkward - I love that it has a home now!
