This is a project that is long overdue. I have been living with the current decor for almost 12 years now and it has been my guest room "look" in three houses in three states. I made all of the bedding and curtains in early 1998 when we lived in Minnesota. We moved to California and the decor went with us. Three years later we moved to our current home in Kansas City and the room stayed the same. Well the time has come to say goodbye to my Waverly flowers and hello to a brand new look.
I want to paint the room brown with white/cream accents. I know it will need a pop of another color but I'm not sure yet what that will be. I have a lot of fun vintage pieces that I want to incorporate into the room. I want to give it a vintage, travel theme but not too over the top.
With that in mind, I am open to any ideas that you all might have. I have found the best decorators are out there in blogland so don't hesitate to give me your opinion.
Here are pictures of the room in it's current state. The bed frame and TV cabinet are Ethan Allen pieces that I am not willing to paint...everything else is free game! The attached bathroom will also be getting an updated look (stage 2).
These are some of the furniture pieces that will need to get a facelift. They were thrift store finds 12 years ago that I transformed back in 1998. I don't know if they will all come back into the room but I'm working on a tight budget so they will probably resurface.
OK....there you have it. I've posted this so it will keep me motivated to get the project moving. I'm off to buy my paint! Wish me luck.
