House Tour - Week 6 - Guest Bedroom Reveal

A couple of months ago, I shared my progress on the guest bedroom makeover. Today, I'm happy to say that I'm finally finished!  Okay, it's probably not totally finished but I'm officially moving on to other projects.  Feels good to say that!

Here's a reminder of the room a few months after we moved in:

And here it is today:

You may notice a few changes since the last update.  I finished painting the originally black dressers and nightstands white.  I moved the larger dresser out of the room (I think it's going to end up in my dining room which I'm pretty pumped about).  I added the bench to the end of the bed and brought a slipper chair up from the living room, switched the lamps and art and added a few new accessories.  

I wasn't crazy about the Starburst Mirror I had above the bed so I replaced it with these 3 white frames from Pier 1 that I had kicking around.  I cut out pictures from a calendar I had to use in the center of each frame.  I ended up swapping out the lamps entirely instead of spray painting the old ones.  I had actually purchased these glass ball lamps from HomeGoods for our living room, but thought they did the trick in here.  Plus, I'm entirely confused about the direction I'm heading in our living room so it wasn't too hard to take them from that space.

On the nightstand I added a photo of me, my sister, my mom and my grandma (love that picture), and a beach inspired ball which turns out to be one of Baxter's favorite things to nudge.  

The Starburst mirror found a new home above the painted Ikea dresser and I picked up a few new accessories.

I found this beautiful horse painting at Ballard Designs. 

It's 36x48 so fills the wall opposite the bed quite nicely (although in this photo I don't think it looks nearly as big).  We live less than a mile from a horse farm, so it's a nice reminder to our guests that "you're in the country."

These are the curtains I made using linen/cotton fabric from Loom Decor.  It was my first sewing project and I'm really happy with how they came out.

This is the slipper chair from Ballard Designs.  I bought a pair of them for our living room, but I'm having so much trouble pulling that room together that I figured I'd part with one to put in this bedroom.  I found the large basket at HomeGoods.  The throw is from Ikea and the pillow is from Etsy.

Here's a shot of the other side of the room.  I replaced the handles on the closet door for just a few dollars (they were 80s brass before). The rug is sooo cozy and soft and I got it at West Elm.

So, we're ready for guests. I'm tempted to move in if someone doesn't stay soon because our master bedroom is currently a disaster zone!

You can catch up on my other "House Tour" posts here.  Enjoy the weekend!
