Before and After - Guest Room #2

Good Morning!

Well I am finally finished my guest bedroom in which I promised to post about awhile ago! I guess I have to say other projects got in the front of this one!!

 I am going to share some before and after photos with you.


This was actually a baby nursery when we bought our home one and a half years ago.

The previous owner had added a stencil to the wall.  Isn't it so cute?

My next step was to change the paint color in the room.  Well I have to be truthful it took me a long time.  I kept going to get paint samples and taking them up to the room and trying to see which one I would really love on the wall in the room.  Have you ever been undecided over a paint color for your home?

So -- this is what I came up with a light version of a coral color.  I actually wanted coral since I have seen some very pretty rooms painted in this color and I just drooled over it!  However, I thought it was wise to go with a lighter color due to the size of the room.

The Reveal:
So come on in.......

The side table was also a recent ASCP job that I painted in Old White.  The quilt was a recent purchase, just love the hydrangeas!

The bed was a trash to treasure find along side the road.  I just recently finished it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint....It was my very first project....I have to say it went on okay for me, however, I had to use shellac on it before it was painted so paint would not bleed through.  After applying the shellac, the paint went on very easily.  I added a clear Annie Sloan Wax for the finish. 

The three drawer chest was a inexpensive purchase back in West Chester, PA.  It was originally a dark stain and I used leftover chalk paint and some green accent paint that I used on my staircase. 

The above was just a recent DIY project.  I love how it turned out and love the green knobs that were painted! 

Well I am so relieved that I am now finished with the guest bedroom.  This room took quite a long time since I kept procrastinating on many things for the room.  Overall I am so happy on how the room turned out and love the cottage, cozy feel with the white painted furniture.

Now the room is just waiting for a guest to arrive.  I will make sure you will enjoy your stay!

Thanks for your visit.

The painter tried to talk me out of it. The funny thing is my husband says he loves it still, although I think he's just trying to keep me from painting again.
