Guest Bedroom Refresh

Before:

Here’s the bedroom shortly after we moved in. My original plan was to have the room be purple and gray with a bit of teal but it made the room feel much too dark. The purple duvet cover was from when I was in college too.

After:

Please forgive the questionable quality of photos, my nice camera is acting up and sadly I’m out of practice shooting things. Until I can get the nice(er) camera working again and get back into practice taking pictures these will have to do. The room has a nice new refreshing paint color, called permafrost by BEHR. Scroll down for all the individual details about the room and where to find it all.

I’d love to update the light fixture, find a different clock and replace the carpet. The closet doors are mirrored currently (not pictured) but I’d love to frost those over as well. There is also one more picture that needs to be framed and hung up. Also, doors for the bottom half of the book case to hide all of our old college text books… maybe? or I guess we could just donate them because they are so dang heavy and every time we move thats a lot of weight.

In the room:

Curtains: similar here | Shades | Curtain rod: similar here | Lamp: shade, base, and here | Bed frame| Duvet | Sheets | Quilt: I made it, check it out here | Paint | Rug tutorial here | Hook rack tutorial here | Bookcase| trunk: similar here | Magazine file holders | Side tables: here and an old piece that I spray painted… can’t find anything similar | Art: custom 😉 but check this place out | Picture ledge tutorial here | I’d love to add this light fixture | How cool would this clock look? |

This room features quite a bit of my gramma’s watercolor artwork.

Want to make your guests feel at home? Provide your wifi password in a cute frame! Sometimes we feel like we’re running a bed and breakfast with the amount of people visiting. Its not a bad thing by any means, we missed seeing people frequently while we were in Virginia. California is a better vacation destination for our west coast based friends and family.

This quilt I made after I graduated college, it’s a twin sized quilt so it works well as a throw on this guest bed. Not that this bed needs more bedding on it because it stays relatively warm here in southern California. It’s more for ‘decoration’ haha.

The vase is something that my brother got for me in Montana, isn’t it cool?

This trunk is from J’s old academy days. Honestly we’re surprised it’s lasted this long. At least it looks kinda cool in the guest bedroom?
