Guest Room Progress

Monday, January 24, 2011

With Bryan's parents coming to Lubbock this weekend, we thought it was time to finally paint and re-do the guest bedroom. We actually meant to do this the last time they came to stay with us (in September...) but we never got around to it.

As I mentioned in my last post, I didn't know if this would actually happen since Bryan was sick, but I ended up deciding to do everything on my own. It's no where close to being done, but I feel like a got a lot accomplished for one Saturday night. I painted the entire room, repainted all the trim, hung new curtains, moved the bed (Bryan helped with that part) and began putting on the new bedding that I bought on sale about a month ago. Oh, and I re-organized the closet.

Some of the things I still need to do are:

-Touch up the ceiling paint
-Put in new bamboo blinds (we are ordering those this week!)
-Make a decorative pillow with some fabric I bought specifically for this room
-Finish putting all the bedding together (almost done with that part)
-Put up wall decorations (Probably hang some frames and a sunburst mirror over the bed)
-Move the floor lamp from our room to this room

...I think that's it. Since it's not done yet, I'm just showing you a couple of pictures....

Before: (Yuck.)


Much better!

Now I just need to finish it, which I will hopefully achieve by Thursday, because that's when Al and Judy get here!

Oh, and in case you're wondering....all of the junk in the "Before" picture was moved to the other guest room...haha :).

Have a great week!


  1. popped over froom shabby nest.
    love the color you picked and the drapes and the bedding. hoping you were able to get it all done before your in-laws arrived.

  2. Those drapes look beautiful!!! So pretty.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog, I posted some tutorials for those booties. I cannot find the one that I originally used because I've had it for a few years, but I found some great ones!

  3. Love the curtains! Looks so dreamy and peaceful. Your in laws will surely love it :)
