Quickly, is the key to today`s post. I had pictures of the guest room re-do uploaded, so I thought I`d quick post them so I can move on to better things. I painted this room about 2 months ago, so it`s all a little “over” in my head.
Here is the room before we moved in. My sisters and I painted it a paler pink before we moved in.
The room had a wall to wall chalkboard in it– that was cool…. yet annoying… messy, and not cool at all. It was time for it to GO.
Their room was let go so long it was dusty, unorganized, seriously a train wreck of a room.
And forget that crib– no one sleeps in it anyway!
To make a long story short, (because it would be the boringest long story ever) I switched beds with the guest room and the girls room. Now the biggest bed was in the biggest room! Duh. It made such a difference. Plus, I purged and organized for the girls in their “new” room. Way better– it helped that they have a CLOSET in their new room. Score.
This guest room is the only room in our whole house that I splurged on paint. I knew just the color I wanted and Sherwin-Williams had it. I picked up a day at the restaurant– and so that`s the useless information of where I got the money for this project.
Here is the room after. ^^ I can honestly say I am so so happy with it.
Saved my ladder for this room.
I love the radiators in our house. One of my favorite “quirks” of it.
A shot across the bed. I bet that was real explanatory for you.
Looking over at the dresser, where I can now store junk galore. Kidding. All the drawers are pretty bare as of now.
If you need a lamp, just put a string of white lights in a jar.
I took this picture for the cool label on it.
A great thing to have in a guest room is drinking water. why? So your guests don`t have to gather their housecoats protectively around them, and tip toe across the hall nervously for a drink of faucet water, all the while brushing against you in the dark as they pass you slivering (shivering+slithering) back to bed, completely not even owning a housecoat for less exposure.
Ok. well that`s the end of this before and after.
“You have no idea how annoying my mom is when she paints. She looks terrible all the time and she talks louder too.”
“Tell our mom to put away the paintbrush! We are sick of living on cheese and warm honey milk!”
Come girls, let`s go read a book.
