Guest Bedroom Makeover


This makeover is very close to my heart. I did it in 4 days and I worked everything out in less than 1 $1000. To begin, I sketched the concept and design on a piece of paper. I had so many ideas in my mind but going to Lowes armed with the my concept sheet I shopped at l my initial supplies based on my rough sketch. I spent a couple of hours and picked colors that would coordinate the existing wall color.
wanted the room to have a calm and soothing effect with a bit of eclecticism and still have a boutique hotel feel. I had the dresser that I had picked on craiglist and for a long time I couldn't figure what to do with it. After the colors for the room was finalized, I decided to paint it a dark deep blue grey and distress it. I kept the dresser drawers as is to create that contrast I needed.
The 1×4 frame that I used to frame the headboard was painted the same color and distressed to tie up the elements in the room. To see how I constructed and built the headboad, click - http://www.hometalk.com/ecf1c51915/project/989

    How creative all that is. I believe you could go to a scrap yard and whip up a showroom from it. Nice colors too. Best, Charles

    This is really cool, Yamini. I enjoyed the step by step transformation and explanation of what you did. Out of curiosity, how long did this take you?
