So excited it’s One Room Challenge reveal day! It’s been a very long week wrapping up this guest room makeover project so I’m relieved to have it finished!
Well, “finished” meaning the best version at deadline – don’t be surprised if I post an update at some point. 😉
If you’re just joining in, this was my plan for the room, which is a part-time guest room and craft room that I share with my kids. This is what it looked like before.
And here it is now…
I love both farmhouse and traditional style (with a little glam) so I integrated both, which was a little challenging at times, but I like the cozy feel it creates. I also mixed some metals here and there (mostly gold and silver).
I wish we could have a dedicated guest room, but we have to make judicious use of space so I converted the closet into a crafting work space. Here is what it looked like before.
I loved this bright and cheery space, but it didn’t always flow well with the guest room so I toned it down to make it a little more soothing.
I will do another post later on how I transformed this space with mostly spray paint, special thanks to Rust-oleum for providing the spray paint I needed for this project!
My kids and I are pretty avid
hoarders crafters, so I needed even more storage space so I have to double duty with a bookcase and a hutch.
My dad made this bookcase when I was in college. This is its second makeover (the first is here) – I just updated it with a little paint and leftover wallpaper.
This sideboard is a special piece, too – it belonged to my grandparents and I have special memories seeing it while sitting in the dining room playing skip-bo and eating ice cream. Here is the before…
I gave it a paint makeover and sprayed the hardware with Rust-oleum warm gold and love how it turned out!
Such a great piece to hide stuff!
And this was another piece with special meaning. “Amazing Grace” was one of my grandparents’ favorite songs and my sister sang it at their services so I was so thrilled to win this in a charity auction from Vanessa from A Modern Vintage Home. It also added a bit of the farmhouse touch that I needed.
Rest assured, I will share all the juicy DIY project details of the whole room later (I’ve got some opinions and tips on faux shiplap!), but for now I’m just going to bask in the fact that it’s done! For now. 😉
A big shout-out to my friend Gretchen for rolling up her sleeves multiple times to help with the grunt work! And, of course, a big thanks to my husband who graciously supports all my crazy ideas and helps me make it happen while juggling home life, his own work, and the kiddos. We just arrived in NYC for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation Hot Pink Party tomorrow, and we’re excited to celebrate!
