If you've been following my posts, you are probably tired of hearing about my guest room makeover. I'm tired of working on it! There were eight projects posted for this room so I posted a link to my project page and gave you overall before and after photos of the makeover. After this, you won't hear another word about it...I promise! (disclaimer: I do intend to eventually redo my father's dresser, but I won't mention the guestroom makeover)
My empty wall - this is where the new bed is going. That is my new mattress in the box.
My poor lamp needs a nightstand to sit on. The picture on the wall will remain where it is. The carpet is new, since it was installed when I moved in last March.
The dresser belonged to my father and I can't part with it. The rocking chair was my mother's - my dad got it for her when she was expecting me. The mirror was a thrift store find that is waiting to be mounted. Again, the pictures on the wall will remain.
A shot of the window and my temporary curtains. These were moved to our first floor bathroom.
And here, the lovely, cluttered closet!
I purchased this upholstered bed online, along with the mattress I mentioned above. I put it together myself and you can see how - look up my post called "Yes, You Can Assemble That Bed You Saw Online".
The nightstand was added and my lamp was so happy! To see that tutorial, visit the post called "Stenciled Nightstand".
My favorite verse was applied to the wall (no tutorial) and the space-saving vanity area included my mirror, a shelf, and a little bench. The bench tutorial can be found by searching for the post called "Vanity Bench"
This is that little window. It appears much grander now. I posted two tutorials for this...search for "Hanging Curtain Rods for an Average Window" and "How To: Drapery Panels".
And lastly, my closet doors. Believe it or not, the closet is no longer cluttered. See my tutorials for using vacuum bags posted as "Creating Space" and installing the closet doors posted as "Installing Sliding Closet Doors".
