Guest Bedroom Makeover

I don’t think I took any pictures of the bedroom before I started getting ready to paint…because it really was BAD and I just didn’t think about it. Besides the bed being in there, it wasn’t a usable space at all due to the amount of boxes stacked high to the ceiling and across the floor.
Here are a couple of pictures I took before I started painting:

yellowed doors and pink walls-yum!

The walls were a light pinky color and the ceiling, doors and trim were a semi-gloss and stained yellow. The trim and baseboards were white (at one time) and the window casings were brown. Not to mention all the baseboards were cracked or chipped and needed to be replaced. There was also a hole in the sheetrock that needed attention... Boy did I have my work cut out for me!

I started painting the ceiling first-I just did Ceiling White-Flat. Then I started on the walls…trim…windows..doors. I used Sherwin Williams, Nomadic Desert on the walls and for the doors, windows, and trim I used Sherwin Williams-Shell White, semi-gloss.

 We bought new wide baseboards and I LOVE THEM! I want so badly to do the rest of my house like that…but it would cost a small fortune. One room at a time!

and all the painting is done!
Now the room serves as a guest bedroom and more importantly my craft room! I have a nice big desk and armoire that holds all my craft stuff, sewing machine, etc. I made another (large) chalkboard frame to go over the desk.

I got an awesome deal on the bed set from our K-mart that closed and I am super excited that it's Ikat.

my creation station! yeah!

More decorations will come soon I’m sure, I have lots of wall space to cover! I am also happy to say that with this bedroom being done, that only leaves ONE more room left to paint (our bedroom)-yippee!!!
