Guest Bedroom Update

BEFORE:
This is embarrassing, but honest. So here it so goes. This was our guest bedroom for over a year. I realized just as we started to tape the walls to paint that we needed some before shots. So here they are. Ew. Builder's beige. No duvet. Nothing on the walls. No words.
AFTER:
Well its definitely not done, but this is my guest bedroom so far. You saw where we started, so as you can imagine, I am really happy with the transformation.

(Lumbar pillow from Chelsea's Pasage. Pink pillows from my favorite online store, Furbish.)



(the light fixture casts this amazing textured light on the walls and ceiling)



(I still really want to get a new nightstand, any ideas?)



(The life saving Ikea Expedit shelves)



(The texture I was referring to. I also dreamed of this light fixture for years and finally had a spot for it. Its amazing as I imagined.)

I still need something for above the bed and a new nightstand, but we are getting there! Yay for making progress. Its very slow going around our place, but when it happens, it makes me very happy!

  17. You mean to tell me that all the texture on the walls is from the light fixture alone?! That's amazing ~ I thought you texturized them! It's a gorgeous / metallic effect!

  19. It looks so good! And the light does make it look like you've done some kind of paint treatment to the walls. Cool.
