Here's the room when we moved in. It just felt so dark, and not at all like the coastal vistas just outside!
I painted the wainscoting white, then got ready to wallpaper. Pro-tip: cut your paper on the floor, so much easier!
The paper went up easily. Add some new linens, long white curtains and some decor, and I have a totally new space I love!
A kitchenette, a bathroom, plus, we wanted to have room for a bed that sleeps 2. The answer? Built-ins!
...the bed platform was built first. A metal pop-up trundle that we already had fits underneath.
The shelves were made using 1/2" birch plywood & were faced using pre-primed boards ripped down to 1-1/4".
My favorite part of the built-ins are the X-detail on the doors made with 1/4" luan strips.
I wanted to make a new headboard for my nephew and found this shutter at an antique store for $10: Time to DIY!
The headboard turned out great. I was worried about it’s weight but being attached to the wall gives me a sense of ease.
This DIY paneled wall really is easy. I did it from start to finish (by myself) in one afternoon.
I began by hanging pieces of primed (1" x 4" x 8') MDF boards horizontally.
After the horizontal boards were hung, I went back through and added the vertical boards.
I love our guest room makeover and hope our guests feel well-loved (and well-pampered)!
It had been sadly neglected and in serious need of some TLC!
The shower curtain closet ALWAYS drove me nuts. It’s something I’ve wanted to fix since the day we moved in!
We ultimately decided on Sherwin-Williams Intellectual Gray, and I’m so happy with our choice.
We ditched the shower curtain and added REAL closet doors to the closet. It made me SO happy!
It's all about making people feel welcome, comfortable and thinking about what they may need...
Placing it in a nice frame gives it a finished look. Much better than just printing and laying on the tab
