BEFORE AND AFTER PART 2





We made it to Friday.  Whoop.

This week I went to Sculpthouse... a new workout class.  They use mega-reformers and Woodway curve treadmills.  One.....I have never been on a reformer and felt like a fool.  Two.... that treadmill [not electric but powered by you] was damn hard.  At the end of the class I was lying in the corner asking for my mommie.  

I think I still like Orange Theory better but I bought 10 classes to really give it the test.  I'm kind of "old school".....run hard and lift heavy weights.

As promised last Friday......

I have a few more pictures of the guest house [ see part one here] that I had about 48 hours to pull together [before I left town on vacation].  

I love a good challenge:)

The guest house!

Below is a shot of the bedroom before I got started. This whole ensemble  was in their previous home's guest room which I did over 10 years ago!

  
It's safe to say it needed a little "something" right?


But remember the goal....my budget was like $10.00!  

I changed out the yellow lampshade to white....

I found the pictures in the basement....and I bought some dark blue shams at Bed Bath and Beyond.  Then I went home and grabbed these zig zag pillows from my stash....and took the kilim pillows from the couch.





I had 3 Kantha quilts so I used them to bring some color in the space.   I know shocking right?  Me and color:)

Moving into the living area....


Before....2 white sofas from Mitchell Gold.  I moved the 2 benches over to the other side of the coffee table...

Hung some old window panels and brought in 2 large planters.  The pillows came from HomeGood's.  


Another piece from Mitchell Gold warehouse sale
that I accessorized with things they already had.


The barn doors were stained....





There you have it.  Of course this was all only temporary so I am sure there will be tweaks along the way:)

Hope you all have a stomping rocking weekend!
