One Room Challenge – Spring 2017 – Reveal!

It’s reveal day!  It feels like Christmas!  Yay!  The One Room Challenge – Spring 2017 is coming to a close.  But the room transformations will go on and on!  I am beyond thrilled to have completed the challenge and created a wonderful guest room retreat.  The first guests will get to stay in it next week!  The room has gone from a dumping ground of stuff to bold and chic, full of color and a mix of new and old.  That’s my favorite way to decorate!

Let’s just get the before pictures out of the way before I can even get started:

Ugh!  I can hardly stand it!

Here’s the after:

I feel like there needs to be trumpets blaring or something!  I am so thrilled that it is complete!  I am no longer embarrassed by my guest bedroom.

The guest bedroom connects to my office.  It is kind of an awkward set up but it works.  The bad part is that every time I worked in my office, I had to look at that horrible guest bedroom.  Now I won’t feel that way!

The goal was the give the room a beachy chic vibe while still using the existing furniture.  The dressers and nightstand had belonged to my grandparents.  I remember that my grandfather used to keep wintergreen lifesavers in the drawer of the night stand and if my cousins and I were good, he’d let us get one.  Sometimes the nightstand still smells faintly of wintergreen lifesavers.  With a memory like that, I couldn’t get rid of that furniture.  So I painted it in a bold blue.

This room has one dormer window so it doesn’t get the best light.  Therefore, I kept the walls white.  The bold patterned wallpaper adds a focal point and camouflages an awkwardly sloped wall.

After a few hiccups with the light fixture, I finally came up with a plan to make it all work out!  Thank goodness!  For a while there I thought we’d have no light in the room!

Blue is not a color I naturally gravitate to, but I’m loving this palette!  I look forward to working in my office and gazing at this room from beyond the barn door.  Thanks again to Linda from Calling It Home for creating this amazing challenge!  The One Room Challenge – Spring 2017 was a success for me and I look forward to doing another one in the fall!
