We don’t have “after” photos yet but we do have a few ideas for this room (which is now basically used for storage).  We will be having family visit in a few weeks so we figure we better get moving on the guest room makeover!  Last night we purchased a mattress from Sears (took advantage of their VIP sale – 50% off plus free shipping) and we are lucky enough to be inheriting the box spring and bed frame from a family member.

We’re going to paint the room Sweet Pear by BM (a pale yellow with green undertones) and add white beadboard to the bottom half of the room with a chair rail:

The subway tile in this bathroom is a great look and I absolutely love the pale green moulding around the window:

I never used to do this before I bought a house, but now I always find myself looking at every little detail in the set decor when watching a movie.
