Can you believe we lived with this room looking like this for um..... 9 WHOLE months??
I got scared after the first coat was still wet and drying on that first wall... really really scared. It looked bad. I was thinking we made a really bad choice by choosing that discounted paint for five bucks....
I won the black and white chevron pillow from a Centsationalgirl Giveaway. The pillows came from Decordeaux and they are so fabulous and comfy! They are made extremely well and are so cushy and pretty. I picked the black and white chevron for my guestroom and the havock pillow in the darker blue color for my living room. I am not kidding about how comfy they are. We each try to steal it when we are watching a movie in the living room. I will be posting a living room post featuring the havock pillow in blue soon.
I found the FAMILY printable at Shanty-2-Chic for free. I just print and cut each letter out on thick card-stock, punched two holes in each one and threaded twine through the holes and tacked them up. Easy peasy. I am wanting to either find or make a tufted headboard or add an old door for a head board.
Ugh I cannot get the wrinkles out of the comforter, I ironed it three times! I got the white curtains from Target, you can find them HERE.
Their isn't much you can do around a big old tv and dvd player, but I didn't want to leave the guests with nothing, so I tried to disguise it as much as I could. I styled some books in the colors of the room next to it.
I started a little gallery wall with a painting that my mom did, that I still want to get framed in a big black chunky frame and some printables and pictures. I try to change out the pictures with different guests. So for Easter it will be my mom and brothers and sisters and my sister in law and her family.
I added a mirror above the dresser to serve as a little dressing area where they can do their makeup and hair and such.
I don't know the name of the paint color since it was an AS IS selection. :(
And just because before and afters are always so fun...
Are you sprucing up your guest room for family that may be visiting over the Easter holiday?
