Queen Guest Bedroom Reveal

This project has been at a stand still long enough. We still need a headboard, new light, and will need to paint the doors, but honestly, those projects may be down the road a ways. So, I thought I would share our queen guest bedroom makeover at this point - even thought it is only 90% done...it's probably "done" for a while.



{I created a mini-reading nook and plan to hang magazines in the baskets for our guests to read. For more on the art, check this DIY project I did last summer}


To see all of the 'before' shots check out this post. Here are some side-by-side comparisons from a few different angles. Even I forgot how far we have come - until I saw these before and after shots. And to give some true perspective, the first photo is the room with the prior owner's furniture - the tween girl bedroom.


And now the before and afters from a few weeks after we moved in until how the room looks today.





Now, don't all rush to contact me to Photoshop your photos 'cause I know this looks pretty amazing...but here is a shot using two photos - one where the outdoors are blown out and the other where the room is pitch black but you can see the outdoors. It's obviously a little elementary looking here, but this is how the room looks with the naked eye. It seriously feels like a tree house to me because the view is surround by trees. I love it and I love the additional green it brings into the room.


It's safe to say I love how this room turned out, and am excited to get a headboard down the road. I am really leaning towards a navy blue fabric with nailhead trim. I've seen a few floating around One Kings Lane and Joss & Main so someday that will be my plan!
