A Little Makeover

Two weeks ago we were in the process of switching our room with the guest room. The guest room is almost twice the size of our room and we didn't want to make it the nursery. We didn't think a tiny baby needed a big room and we were getting a little claustrophobic in ours.

So we started with the closets. Oh brother! The guest room closets were packed to the brim with crapola. The only the reason my house could look clean, was because those closets were full!

So we emptied them and then filled them with our clothes. We got rid of a ton of stuff! Then we filled our old closets with storage stuff.

THEN, we found out we weren't having a baby after all! There were lots of other other things we needed to do to the new room to make it ours. Change drapes and rods, paint furniture, blah, blah, blah...

SO, we decided to save that for another time and just make things easy for now. So we switched back our closets and we are still in the small room for now. I did feel the need for change though. So I did a mini makeover for super cheap!

This WAS our room:


And this is the guest room that was going to be ours, but isn't:


And this is our old room that looks new!

I got this green bedding at Target for $35! It came with the shams. I already had the white chenille coverlet. I painted the red dresser white along with the M & the D. I got the bird plates at Pier 1. The Dumpheys on Modern Family have that plate too, so it's like I'm famous!



The cushions are on the floor waiting for me to paint the rocker.


I just changed a little bit over here. I already had the green tin frame and the green frame with our wedding picture in it. The wreath was over our bed before.


I got these cute sconces from Melissa at Golightly's, and I already had the shutters that I was using in the guest room. I like to steal from other rooms!

And the green wreath is from Golightly's too out of Lisa's space.



Now I feel like making over the rest of my house!

I wish I knew you in real life - you are such a fun person with the MOST fun style!! I always LOVE what you are doing in your house!
I'm getting caught up on blogs and JUST read back and saw about the baby. I'm so very sorry. Praying for you right now. SO happy that you got pregnant! I know you have been on a roller coaster of emotions but I pray God blesses you again - you were born to be a mom! Katie is precious!

I so love your decorating style!! You are motivating me to finally make some changes around here. I can't wait to see more!!

Kelly said...

I love the make over! I"m a big fan of the "before" room as well, but either way, you've inspired me to do something with our bedroom! It's HUGE, and I have almost no decorations at all! thanks!
