Guest Bedroom over the years

Our guest bedroom has come a long way and it still has a long way to reach to some what done stage.

When we bought the house, it came with two painted bedrooms, both in hideous colors. One of them is Guest bed room (other one was master bed room if you are curious to know). I hated the saffronish hue used, no doubt that my "painting the walls saga" started with this room. Here is how bedroom looked when we moved in.

We painted the walls blue. We had the ikea norsund bed in our rental which we were using in the master bedroom. I had the plans of moving it to guest room after we buy a new one for master bedroom. Since that was taking long, I bought the bed, off of craigslist as a stop gap (ended up using it for good 3+ years, lol). With new curtains, bedding and the bed, take 1 looked like this.

The blue and chocolate theme was getting boring, I decided to change the look few months earlier. It all started when I picked up this set of curtains at TJMax. One led to other and I finally removed the old poster bed. Replaced that with the ikea bedframe.

This is how the room looks today.

In the following weeks, I am planning to finish decorating the room. I have been working on one of the projects for a while, started another one last week.  Here is what I am planning to do in the coming weeks

1. Bring in a chair
2. Replace the nightstands
3. Something to go behind the head board
4. Gallery wall ? may be with travel memorabilia
5. Something for the lampshade
6. Bed skirt

Can't wait to show you the two projects, both are related to painting. I am hoping to finish both by end of the week. We have something exciting going on in the garage this week. More on that later.

Enjoy the rain and have a beautiful week ahead!!
