Guest Bedroom Makeover

Welcome to the guest bedroom portion of the house tour! 
This is the first version of our guest bedroom. (You can see the second version here).

We've finally finished every last detail of our guest bedroom!
Unfortunately I don't have any shocking before pictures to share as I started redoing this room before I began blogging. However, if you take a look at my master bedroom, you'll get a good idea of what this room looked like before.
I did all of the work myself and the entire room was done on a budget of just a couple hundred dollars. I'm excited to share all of the DIY details with ya'll today!



 

Here is the room today:


DIY Bedroom Decor: Affordable decorating ideas for every home!


 The first thing I did with this room was paint the old wood trim and paint the walls. I decided to go with a neutral color scheme to make this room calm and relaxing for guests.

I found this gorgeous linen upholstered chair with french script that really adds some glamour to this room. The pewter nailheads add a special touch and work well with the mirror frame and lamps.

Isn't she just lovely?

This mirror was actually a older piece we already had. It was originally a dark gold, and just didn't work with this space, so I decided to spray paint it with my favorite silver spray paint.

For the lighting in this room, I found 2 simple pewter lamps from Ross. Then I hung a pretty chandelier that was similar to the one I diy-ed in the office.  The end tables were actually found while thrift store shopping. They were originally bright red, but I painted them with some homemade chalk paint and replaced the hardware.

This headboard was a second-hand piece! I thought about making another upholstered headboard, but decided against it when I found this headboard on craigslist for $20. It was fairly beaten up and was a really ugly color of wood. I patched it up with some wood filler, sanded it down, and gave it the same paint job that the side tables received! I think the end result is totally classic and works perfectly in this room!

For the bedding in this room, I kept it simple with a striped white duvet cover and some simple chic pillow covers.



To add inexpensive artwork to the room, I found antique botanical prints on eBay then framed them in frames I found at a local salvage store. It's one of my favorite ways to add art to a room.

  3. Love the chair, the botanicals, and the "pewter" mirror. Just hope that isn't the same mattress you had when you left home. :-)

  17. Gosh, that's something! I absolutely adore the chair and graphics and paint - everything. You made me thinking of my bedroom. I have 2 chairs that need to be reupholstered and I'm going to use this idea to my office room, too. I am thinking about a headboard but I've never done it before.
