Guest Bedroom Before and After

Next up in before and afters: the guest bedroom. We went from way-to-bright yellow walls to calm grey. I've said it a million times but it is truly amazing what a coat of paint can do. And be sure to check out the major stains in the middle of the hardwood floors.
Here's the guest bedroom before.

And here's the after! This room is the catch-all for all of the items that we've had forever. Old bed, reading lamps and bedding from New York, Relax sign, green chair, and outlet curtain panels from college. You can't beat free. :) The only new item in the room is the drum shade ceiling light from Lowes, which cost about $95.

I'm on the hunt for an area rug and some big statement art, and then I'll call it done!

By the way...our episode of My First Place is going to air as part of the 2012 season, sometime next Spring! That's all I know for now, but I'll give you more info when it gets closer to time. 


  1. Looks awesome! Love those lamps by the bed!

  2. How exciting on the show!! I love the 'Relax' sign above the bed...just reading the word is soothing :)

  3. Gorgeous! I love the green accents of the chair and 'Relax' wall decoration. Lucky is the guest who stays with y'all!
