Guest Room

With the visit of some family a few weeks ago, I decided that it was time to tackle the guest room.  It was our saddest room but since it was hardly ever used, we just kept the door shut so we didn't have to look at it.  Here are some of the before and after shots...

We originally wanted to go with a yellow called Anjou Pear - Sherwin Williams.  We got it up on the walls and I have never been more uncomfortable in a room in my life!  It was just awful in this space.  You can see where we started trimming out the walls with it in the before photo above.  The color we ended up with is called Granite Boulder - Behr.  It was left over from when I wanted to go grey in the kitchen.  It makes the room feel really cozy and relaxing. 

The curtains are left over from my living room project.  They go great with the wall color and are double lined so they keep the light out quite nicely for guests that want to sleep in. 

One of my favorite projects in the room so far is the birds on the wall. 

I found a pattern on pinterest and made the birds with some left over scrap material.  Owen and I found some sticks outside and I screwed them into the wall.  The birds are attached with a glue gun. 

Now, I need to figure out what to do with the headboard for the bed and lighting. 


  1. Oh Teresa. I want you to come do my house when you're done. Everything you've done is gorgeous!

  2. thanks ladies! Carlyle, we would love to come visit you guys. I saw your mom and dad a couple of weeks ago in Rochester and we saw your 2011 year in photos - WOW! love, love, love!!! Your home looks so warm and happy. I am completely jealous you found a yellow that works so well. I really want some yellow in this house but just can't seem to get it right :) xoxo
