All You Need Is 24 Hours (Guest Bedroom Transformation)

Yesterday I mentioned how we were in the middle of transforming Shawn's never used office into a never going to be used guest bedroom. I say this only because the last time we had a friend spend the night, they took the liberty upon themselves to pee on our floor during the middle of the night. No toilet necessary, just whipped it out right on the carpet. Because of this, we have somewhat veto'd the whole "friends sleeping over thing". We love them, we just don't love what they do to our house at 3 am. And now before you all get on a "you need to make new friends" tangent, I will reveal the before and afters.

What started as this.....
Turned into this....
lamp: target
bedding: ikea // bed frame: ikea // tray: target
nightstands: ikea // vase with flowers: target 
curtains: target // mirror: target // canvas prints: target // chair: ikea
seashell thingy: kohls // candle: bath and body works
print: target
pillows: target
wind chime: gift

paint color details found here

Waaaaaaaah-laaaaaa!
And the best part about it all was that it took less than 24 hours to complete it all. 
Bam. Quick and easy, just like I like it. 

I think she's pretty enough I may just sleep in her one of these nights. My legs are not opposed to the extra room and heck, everybody needs a place to go after buying one too many pillows. No but seriously. I'm 100% positive if I buy one more pillow he will have me sign divorce papers. Note to Target: Stop making such cute pillows and then putting them on clearance. Marriages are failing all over the world because of you.

So what do you think? 

All in favor of me doing the entire rest of my house now, say I. 
IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII.

  1. I have a thing for pillows too! My boyfriend generally doesn't complain though, as long as I share them! I currently have 2 HUGE throw pillows, 3 normal pillows and 2 small pillows on the bed, and I sleep with most of them.

  2. I say I!!!! So cute! I love the whole redo. Great job. No one can ever have to many pillows. I love Target and Ikea. Sadly, we have no Ikea close to where we live, however, I will be in Dallas next month and Ikea will enjoy my presence in their store! Keep on decorating!

    Also, totally random question: my walls are essentially the same color as yours, how did you get such great coverage with that awesome turquoise?
    This turned out awesome! I wish I could pull off something that put together in 24 hours!!

  24. Seriously, that is gorgeous. My fiance has started to realize what an awful idea it is to let me go into Target by myself anymore. I think last time I only bought three things I didn't need. He still shook his head at me.

  33. I thought I was alone in the no overnight guests thing. I recently had a "friend" crap on my bathroom floor and not clean it up. I would have felt sorry for their tummy troubles if they had not left that disgusting mess for me. Who does that?!?! Ugh. I too need new friends.

    Oh and the room is totally cute! I love Target and that paint color!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow that looks fantastic! Great job!

  48. I say LOVE IT and I say MORE MORE! BTW - pillows double as forts, which can be quite handy when you need somewhere to hide from the world (in my case children) for a while!

  65. Love your quick turn-around. How satisfying it is to complete a project in 24 hours?!?

    I totally agree about Target. lol. My husband always asks, "What did you buy now?" Then I have to respond, "Well, it was on clearance." Man, those end caps get me every time!

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
