I have a small confession to make – It took me 9 months to complete my Guest Bedroom Makeover. Ouch, that is the time frame of 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?
Ok, let me refresh your memory on how this thing looked before I kicked the baby, I mean the youngest son, to the attic bedroom. You can see by the photo, I did not clean it to take the picture.
Here is a quick recap of what was done: You can click on each of the links below to see more details of that project.
Clutter control – I moved the youngest up to the attic bedrooms
Painted the Headboard.
Painted the remaining bedroom furniture and the Headboard again!
As you can see, I have a lot to share with you. I 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!
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! Sometimes picking the paint finish for the furniture is the hardest part, harder than painting. 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 the steps to the second floor. 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.
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.
It is hard to pick a favorite project in this room because I love so many of the details.
