Guest Room Revamp

When Syd was cleaning out the garage last weekend, he kindly informed me that if I didn’t figure out what to do with that nightstand, it was going back to the Goodwill where I bought it from. That thing has been in 3 different garages throughout the course of our marriage just waiting for new hardware and a fresh coat of paint. So naturally I said we needed to revamp the whole guest room to use the nightstand. Let me preface this by explaining that our guest room has just been a bed and a jumble of fabric samples since we moved in. However, the revamp was easy (and pretty affordable) because we already had the furniture and bedding, but it needed major sprucing. I used several vintage pieces in this room and I have found that the trick to getting a “now” look (and avoiding the junk store affect) is by keeping everything else very, verycrisp. So it all started with this…

What do you do when things need sprucing? Paint them white, of course. We painted the walls and nightstand white – the color on the walls is Benjamin Moore “white” and the nightstand is Krylon white spray paint. The hardware is one of my very favorites from Martha Stewart’s line for Home Depot. The headboard is from West Elm in burlap and the bedding is RH. The ladies at Caitlin Wilson Textiles are sweet and they sent these pillows – I knew immediately they were perfect for this room! The frames are Pottery Barn and the brass task lamp is West Elm. The photos were extras from a recent project taken by Walker Boyes. The vintage quilt is from a local consignment shop and I seriously can’t get enough of it – the other side is pink! Which makes it even more awesome. The vintage trunk at the end of the bed is also something that I’ve had in the garage for years.
