2 Anniversary Recap: Guest Bedroom

>> Wednesday, February 2, 2011

This sad little space was once my guest bedroom. Can you imagine? Bone cold walls, the same filthy carpet, dreadful shades…the kind you pull down and never can get seem to get back up.

The same story as the rest of the house: new paint (this time a little darker with a combo of Napery & Compatible Cream from Sherwin Williams) and those same almost-like-brand-spankin-new hardwoods.

Now it’s time for the fun part. Because I’m a home nerd and make no secret of this fact, I challenged myself to deck out this room with as many rehabbed finds as possible. Many trips to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, thrift stores and the attics & garages of friends and family ensued…to bring me this…

Oh my. So many rehabs, how-tos, and DIYs are scattered about this room. The type A in me craves a list…

I love this one even more! The furniture is phenomenal and I love your wall of frames. We are talking about designing a photo wall, but we are stuff on the frames. I love the idea of just using frames and skipping on the prints!

The frames were a super quick and easy fix (just 6 bucks) for this large wall space. Do it. Take pictures. Send my way!
