Oh, the guest room. This room has been a roller coaster ride. It started out as the most disgusting, hateful room in the house. Just look at this icky mess:
|I love how the paint would come off when you touched it.|
|The chair rail really...well..yeah it needed to go.|
|This room was dusty, gross, and damaged. And if you look closely,|
you can totally see the original hall bath. *shudders*
|At this point, the room gave me migraines. I mean,|
what a mess.
|It's amazing what cheap paint and carpeting can do.|
|Yup. This happened.|
|And it was a big deal when this happened - because this was "organized".|
|Look - a work space! And yeah, Molly's hanging out in her wedding dress.|
|And it could actually function as a guest bedroom. Fancy that.|
|Even hanging sheer "curtains" in place of doors|
was a big step for us.
|Here you can see the only storage closet in|
the entire house. Not even kidding.
|Now it really felt like a guest room.|
|But man, this room is small and awkward shaped.|
So then we finished our bedroom, and our bathroom, and my little sister was coming to visit, so I thought we ought to really finish this room. Aka - repaint, do the trim, and put up real window treatments. But Vanessa, you say, There are no window treatments in this room. Oh, that's because I refused to allow photos taken of the TOWELS that got shoved into the crack above the window to keep things private. Sometimes I feel like we fit in too well to this neighborhood...
|Elephant Grey paint, new curtains...|
|How cute is this room now?|
|It's definitely girly. I mean, there's 3 Audrey photos in here,|
and it's purple. But I like it.
|Oh, and check out those REAL doors. Win.|
|And you can't see, but that closet is totally and legitimately|
organized. I am on top of it.
