~Guest Bedroom Tour~

Kelly's room tour is of guest bedrooms this week. We live in a different state than all of our family, so this is an important room in our house. This is a queen bed, so there is not much room for anything other than side tables.

*I made the leopard pillows, drapes & bed skirt.
*The headboard (can't really see) was my parents and is over 30 years old!
*Both side tables are $5 tables & covered with fabric
*The bed is up on lifters for a bit of a dramatic look...PLUS, it adds more storage under the bed ;)

*This iron piece is the middle piece of the 3 piece set that I got at a garage sale for $8!

What we did in this room:
New carpet
New paint (yikes, that blood red was bad!)
New trim paint (I keep mentioning this because it made a HUGE difference in each room. It really brightened everything up & made it look new again.)
New window treatments (there were none)

Thanks for touring! Hope you have a very blessed day!

Looks great. I love the iron sun looking thing. Can't pass up a steal at a garage sale.

Was the 'before' red difficult to paint over?

I love the drapes you made!
