Well, after 3 years of living in my house, I finally got around to making over my guest room.  I have to say it turned out just how I wanted it to.  It is a bit shabby and a bit chic. 

Before:

If you wanna play a little game, you can play "where's the kitty?"


Pardon the mess. I let the room "go" about a week before the makeover.


ahem...pardon the rum and coke too.  Wink

After:



It is amazing what a few coats of paint can do along with some new mini blinds!  I think I am going to re-do my craft room next!

It's amazing what a little paint can do to pull a room together.  The madeover room looks great - you should be proud of yourself.

I found her, I found her!  She looks so startled!  Cheesy

Great color--I can't get over what a difference the new paint makes.  And I think I'm in love with your sofa!  Could I have it for being the first to find the kitty?  Wink

She does look a little startled doesn't she!  The sofa has been passed around my family for years and I was lucky enough to end up with it!

Thanks so much! I actually came up with the makeover myself. It turned out better than I could have imagined!  I picked the wall color based on the color of the sheets on the bed (underneath the comforter) and I thought the color would look nice on the wall. I have been fortunate enough to have most of the furniture in that room handed down to me.

I LOVE that bed! My "eventual" plan for my spare room involves a bed along those lines. Nice paint too!

that is a GORGEOUS color for the walls. i love periwinkle!
it's kinda funny, it looks at though your change was to switch the wall and comforter colors, which is great cause it makes the whole room pop!

Thanks everyone! Yep, the bedframe is a hand-me-down.  It really is one of my favorite things, especially in that room!  Grin  I like the color of the paint too..I was a little worried at first, kinda started to look like the inside of an easter egg but, once it was complete and everything was in its place it turned out great!  I am proud.
