Last May, I showed you the guest bedroom reveal. I have to confess, I was never really happy with it. The layout was crowded and it just seemed blah. You can see that post here.
One of the things I didn't like was the oak sleigh bed. We have had that bed since 2002. I loved it the, in my old farmhouse. The oak seemed to fit in with my style back then. You can see how it looked in the farmhouse master bedroom back in 2002 here.
I finally decided to paint it. Here is the guest bedroom now, with the newly painted bed.
You might notice that we changed the bedroom layout around too. Here is the old look, below.
We removed the wicker trunk that was taking up too much room. The table on the right side of the bed in the picture above moved out to the foyer and got a paint job, you can see that here.
The red hutch that used to be in the foyer, is now housing some books and a TV in the bedroom.
We found a vintage mirror and hung it over the headboard along with some red transferware plates.
If you look closely at the picture above you will see that I painted the base of the lamp on the left side of the bed. You can see it in it's original state on the second picture of this post and the right side of the bed. Are you getting confused yet?
Something new in the room is the vintage grain sack pillow that I purchased from Ann at On Sutton Place. It is perfect in the room. You can visit Ann's blog here, or her ESTY site here.
So there you have it. A mini makeover for the guest room.
