Guest Room Makeover (One Room Challenge: Spring 2015 Week 1)




I must be crazy...I haven't finished my Farmhouse Modern Laundry Room makeover yet...and I'm starting on another room!

But I just couldn't resist. Have you heard of the One Room Challenge event? It's where 20 bloggers make over rooms in 6 weeks and then hundreds of other bloggers join in as linking participants. This will be my first year linking up to this event...I was excited to join and feel like I needed the motivation to get this Guest Room Makeover off the ground!


I've only got 6 weeks to pull this off! Wish me luck.

I've been itching to finish our guest room, ever since my oldest son abandoned it to head off to college. The plans include a queen bed...so he was happy to ditch his twin when he comes home for visits and gave me the thumbs up to proceed.

I envision this space as a calming retreat, something with soothing colors and texture, but nothing too busy. I want my guests to be able to relax in this space...and sleep well...so I see beautiful, sumptuous bedding, maybe a touch of soothing aqua on a piece of furniture in the space.

I already have the bed. It belonged to Mr DIY and I for years, until we upgraded to a king.



 As you can see, it doesn't exactly fit with my vision for the room...but there's nothing that paint can't transform so I plan to paint this bed as the first step of the challenge.

See this Guest Room Transformation week by week! Part of One Room Challenge #ORC | DIY beautify 

Be sure to check back next Thursday when I reveal the painted bed makeover!
