~Guest Room Makeover Reveal~


mondaymet secondtimearoundtuesday

 With the completion of the guest bedroom makeover, I’m combining Metamorphosis Monday and 2nd Time Around Tuesday, in one post.  Stop by Susan’s Monday’s and Diane’s each Tuesday, for makeovers and renewed treasures.

Looking into the vanity area, of the guest bath, as it looked before.  The paint color is Laura Ashley Olive #5 (Lowe’s)



The paint color is Laura Ashley Gold#3. The panels and roman shades are beige lined in cream.  Oldest daughter “inherited” these for her master bedroom.

The three gold pillows are now used in the living room. The lamp, once belonging to J’s late mother, is in the other guest room. The settee and tables are used in other rooms.

The paint color remains the same.

guestroom12When I found the navy, white and gold toile comforter, at Target, it set the wheels in motion for a little guest room makeover.  I shopped the house for accessories and the wing chair.  I purchased the bird prints, above the bed, at All About Home, here in our town.  The sconces are from JC Penney.  The black lamps were formerly in the master bedroom. The lyre tables were found years ago at a local auction.

The furniture is from our room, at the farm; it’s Lexington. 

Checkers, chess pieces and a deck of cards are stored inside the game table, beside the chair.  A stack of travel and decorating books are on the small dresser.

I replaced the heavier window treatments with bamboo shades and sheers. Giving the room a lighter feel.

I’m very pleased with how the room makeover turned out.  Somehow, the room seems more comfortable.



The wing chair is my contribution for 2nd Time Around Tuesday.  Given to us, by our niece, the chair was upholstered in a chartreuse and olive stripe. Not pretty, at all. I believe it is from the 1950’s or 1960’s.  I had the chair upholstered in a soft gold.  The skirt was added, at that time.

The throw, on the chair, is a Ralph Lauren cable knit, from Marshall’s at Osage Beach, MO.

guestroom17This photo shows the vanity area of the guest bathroom, after it was repainted. The paint color is Laura Ashley Gold #2, mixed in Kilz.  This is a pass through bathroom, with the other vanity area off the hallway. A tub and toilet room separates the two vanity areas. These rooms are being painted LA Gold #2, also.

Many thanks to Joni, at Cote de Texas, for featuring my photos, on her post, Photography 101, Sunday June 14th. I appreciate this so much, Joni!!


Friday June 19th is Marty’s Cloche Party.
