Updating the Guest Room

For a while I have wanted to add a little more color to the guest room at our summer cottage and recently I was able to do just that.  I had seen a “bed in bag” at a local department store and decided to think about it.  While I was thinking about it, I received some reward bucks from said department store and as I was strolling through the store I just happened to notice that the bedding I was thinking about was reduced to half price and it just happened to be almost the exact price as my reward bucks! As you can imagine, I didn’t have to think anymore! I snapped up the Waverly bedding and headed to the check out.

And here is a picture of the “before.”

Here is a little closer look.

I also updated the drop cloth window treatments by switching out the top and bottom accent fabric.

As an additional detail, I made new “slip covers” for the lamp shades in coordinating fabric. You can see how I made them in this post.

The existing settee and artwork stayed the same.

Very pretty! I love the new color scheme. Everything fits in the room perfectly.

I've just been working on a post for tomorrow about our master bedroom. It needs new bedding and some love. I hope I stumble across something pretty that is a great price.

I love the new vibrant color, although the old one looked pretty still Pat!

I've been wondering how to lengthen my draperies so I'm going to check out your old posts fully. Just wanted to say I'm your newest follower.

I love your panels with the contrast at the top and bottom! The lamp shade cover is adorable. Great changes. Hope you enjoy the new look of your guest room. :-)
Blessings!
