Sage Toile Guest Bedroom/Bath Before and After


I am participating in Susan from Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday. To see other wonderful before and afters, visit Susan. Susan is also having a wonderful giveaway. So go check it out!

Here are some pictures of one of our guest bedrooms and bath. The first picture below is the before picture. The previous owner had painted the walls, baseboard molding and ceiling all the same color olive green. There are no windows in this bathroom and it was very cave like.




AFTER
Here is the bath today. I painted the ceiling and baseboards a crisp white. The walls are Belgian Waffle. The shower curtain is a waffle weave spa type curtain.











Here is a BEFORE picture of the guest bedroom. The walls were a pale blue and the floors were the dark laminate. The precious owners had removed stained carpet in the bedrooms and placed inexpensive laminate floors down. The problem was they were thinner than the adjoining real wood floors in the hallway and there was a 1/2 step down to get into the rooms.







AFTER
I painted the walls a sage green that matches the green toile curtains and bed skirt perfectly. We replaced the laminate with cream colored carpet. Since these are guest rooms they don't get a lot of traffic, so I wasn't worried about the light color.



The cream duvet and the sage sheets are the items I purchased at Home Goods last week with my gift card.





We have hung a few pictures, but still have not really decorated this room. That will happen in time, as I find pieces while out flea marketing and antiquing.


Come back in the next day or so and see the second guest bedroom makeover...
Welcome Home,

Penny

  2. Your guests will be very happy, indeed, when they stay here. I often look at the pale green toile and wonder how it would look - so interesting to see it in your room.

  8. I'd like to make a reservation! : ) The bathroom looks so crisp now. Nice job! Love the bedroom too. I don't think those dark floors were doing that room any favors anyway.

  19. Hi Penny
    Amazingly lovely. I do love your studio and left you a comment on your Lavender site. I would love a room like that to work in too.

    Love your washroom and the colours you've chosen for both the washroom and your bedroom. Love the Belgian Waffle..what make is the paint and also the sage green? I do love those colours. I need to do some painting also but as I'm sure I've said before...I hate painting..*sigh*...but I love the end result.

    Enjoy your new studio and your new home....
    have a lovely evening
    Judi
