Guest Bedroom: Before and After


It may seem like you have seen this bedroom before - and guess what, it's because you have

When moving, we decided we would try to keep a similar color scheme to our previous home that we had just redone. Apparently this helps "save money" and makes me "not have to go to Target every single day" says the man of the household. Thankfully, I was pretty happy with how our previous guest bedroom had turned out so I was perfectly content re-creating that same look here at the new house. 

As you can see from up above, we were dealing with a pretty clean slate when getting our hands on it. Here's what we did -- installed carpet, painted the walls, trim, and windows, added crown molding, had a light installed, and then decorated this little room with whatever I could find on hand.

Here's how it turned out:

paint color: restful by sherwin williams light fixture: lowes // curtains and hardware: target
bedding and furniture: ikea // decor: target and TJ Maxx

Now all we need is a couple of guests to actually break this joint in. Going once...going twice....

  10. Love this room and the colors! Did you guys install your own crown molding? Or did you hire this out? We're looking to do this in a few bedrooms and are debating whether its worth the time and effort to do ourselves.
