These are the “before” photos of our guest room:
   

 

 
                   

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 bedding will either be a beachy blue stripe:

Or a yellow vintage print:

We already have the VIVAN curtains from Ikea and are thinking about a dark bamboo roman shade (from Target) also for the window:

And since it’s a small room, the only other furniture we want to put in there is a nightstand (or two) with a lamp (or two):

What do you think?  Any other suggestions?
