Guest room is finished!


I am so excited to finally say that our guest room is finished!  We have lived in our house for two years now and this has been on my to do list since we moved in.  I absolutely love how it turned out.  I now look forward to having friends & family come and stay with us.  The room was quite boring and ugly before.  Hope you enjoy the tour!


This is an old mirror that I found at a garage sale a few years back.  It was originally dark brown and was part of a beat up dresser.  Amazing what a coat of paint can do.


A relaxing, comfy place for our guests to stay.
I got the word art sign at a little store in the town I live in.  Love it!

This picture shows the gray wall color.  So relaxing.



I got this cute little side table at K-Mart of all places!  I added a little black paint to the top to add some whimsy to it.

I used Annie Sloan chalk paint to transform this dresser.  It was my dresser that was in my bedroom when I was a little girl!  It was originally dark brown wood.  LOVE that I was able to use in this room!

I decided to distress it a little and add some dark wax to it.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at our guest room!  I am thrilled that it is finished and that I was able to use a lot of items that I already had to decorate the room.  Paint on the walls & furniture made a huge impact!

I will be adding more rooms in our house to the house tour soon!
