Be My Guest~ A Guest Bedroom Makeover!

I have a small confession to make – It took me 9 months to complete my Guest Bedroom Makeover.  Ouch, that is having a baby and the way I milked this project it sure was a long labor.  It is done, completely done, now I can officially move on to the next house project.   Mr. DD. is cringing at that statement.  He made me promise that I would not tear up or start another house project until the bedroom was 100% complete.  

Are you ready?

 As you can see, I have a lot to share with you.  Guest Bedroom Makeover- On a BudgetI wanted to share the completed project before I share the small project details.   I want to show that the room is done even if it takes me 2 months to post the details!  

Trash to Treasure Guest Bedroom Makeover-

In all honesty, this should have never taken me 9 months to complete, but it took a back seat to life, blogging and the projects that I paint for the shop.  Another huge delay was the furniture, I kept changing my mind on colors and finishes and I ran into some small challenges and I just kept avoiding doing the project!  I promise a bedroom makeover does not take this long unless you want it to!

This is the first room you see when you walk up my steps.  Now, I can smile instead of sighing!  I smile because it looks great and it is finally complete.

It was well worth the time and headaches -self-induced as Mr. DD. calls them.  

Pamper your guests in a Guest Bedroom Makeover-

My boys told me that it is the nicest room in the house.  This is a blessing and a curse to someone like me.  This tells me that the rest of my house is not up to par and it all needs a makeover.

  1. I love EVERYTHING! Especially your light fixture. I’ve been searching for something similar. Mind sharing where you purchased it?

  2. Is there any way you could link where you got that gorgeous bedding and also the color of the main coral frame?!(: I love that bedding and have been looking for a while for something beautiful but not super expensive!

  3. What a transformation! I love the frames and I can’t believe the furniture refinishing! No wonder it took you six months@ Great job. You should be proud of you new room!

  4. Love, love, love the color scheme. I’m gearing up to redo my master and want to use grey on the walls and a darker grey comforter. I’ve got two schnauzers and I just know that if I used light grey that I would have a constant battle keeping it clean. You did a fantastic job on all the little details that go in to making a fabulous guest room. Are you accepting reservations yet? Bet they go fast!
