We’re hoping to finish this makeover in the next couple of days just in time for our guest who will be staying for the weekend.  We started on Saturday and have already finished painting the walls and putting up the wainscoting.  This is what the guest room looked like “before”:
 Guest Room "before" by you. 
 Guest Room "before" by you.

It looked like this for a long time and we actually were mainly using it for storage until we finished other projects and could get around to fixing this room up.  We painted the room BM Sweet Pear:
 Guest Room "during" by you.

 All painted by you.

 
We got the wainscoting from Home Depot and since we wanted 4′ and not the standard 3′ that they sell already cut, we decided to get the 8′ planks and cut them in half:
 Wainscoting cut to 4' lengths and ready to be put up by you.

We started on the wainscoting over the weekend and finished up most of it tonight:

We just have to finish installing the chair rail, caulking and painting the wainscoting and then we can move on to decorating the room.

We have a tray ceiling in our hallway that was barely noticeable before, but now with the new crown moulding, paint (BM Shaker Beige 50% lighter) and a new light fixture it really pops!
