OK....where were we before my mean streak occurred and I left you guys hanging.
Oh yeah....the guest bedroom makeover.
Here is a before
My suggestion was to move this console that holds the TV to the wall at the foot of the bed.
It is not doing the mirror any justice and it is hard to see the TV from this angle. By the way she got the mirror at Ballard.
You already know [from the previous post] that her Mom had this chest....which was painted along with adding those pretty crystal knobs from Anthro.
Honestly what is better than paint? It is so damn transforming.
Here is a picture of the lamp from Homegoods when I bought it.
I could see the cuteness....but I think changing out the shade made a big difference. I used my favorite one from Pottery Barn.
Those adorable books came from Anthro...the basket tray from World Market. The shell from Goodwill along with the glass vase that has the flowers. The frame from Target with a picture from a brochure I had.
She had the baskets that I put underneath and the jar is from Target.
Here is the wall in front of the bed. Since curtains were out of the budget at this time I had her take the rod down. We can always add those at a later time.
Here I added a small 5 x 7 rug for softness along with the metal baskets. She got the console at Scott's.
You can see I removed the smaller glass jar. I always edit a room at the end after I take a few pictures and look at them. My thought is less is better. The large glass adds a different element from the metal baskets or the seagrass trays under the chest. Plus when she is having guest it's easy to clip a branch for some softness.
A better shot of the whole space. I was going crazy trying to figure out what to put on the wall to the left of the console. I had nothing left! Then I remembered that she had this covered cork board which could be a nice place to put pictures of your guest when they visit...or a list of activities you have planned for them. I used some command strips to hold it n place.
Here is the corner where the Kubu chair from World Market is. I tried to find a link on the web site. I know that they were discontinued for a while but I was told they are back in stock after some production issues.
This was a pretty lonely corner. It called for some pattern in the form of the pillow and art. I ordered the prints from Etsy.....Linda Donahue and the pillow also from Etsy....Pillow Talk and More.
Again....I am digging these frames from Target.
And now the wall with the bed. Like I said the only big change here was the pedestal stand on the left was painted the same color as the chest. And of course that bed needed some party clothes!!
Here is the repainted stand.
I found that acrylic frame from Goodwill!
Here is a before of the nightstand.
Raising the lamp with a few books that I scored at a flea market helps to give it more presence. I also found those old National Geographic magazines which I put in a metal basket from Homegoods. I used a piece of marbleized paper in a target frame and of course fresh flowers always help:)
And thats it! Thanks to my client for letting me document this process:)
I heard on the news the other day that it has rained 22 out of 24 days in July.
Shazam.....it's already Wednesday!
