Guest Room Reveal (Bloggers Without Borders)

Here it is, my *finished* guest room.

Yes, I had big plans for this room.

First you would be greeted by a lovely homemade art project.

                      starfish in frames


We used scrapbook paper as a mat, then glued starfish and favorite rocks on top.

Then the bedding would go from blah-blah-brown to wham-bam-pow pink, blue and green.


The wall behind the bed would get a fun confetti polka dot treatment.

Confetti Polka Dot wall treatment with vinyl decals


The closet doors would have a cute dress form decal on them.




In my fantasy, I made curtains, learned how to table-scape, had a guest bathroom stocked full of essential items...


Um... No check?

Instead, I spent a lovely summer with my kids, and just freshened up a bit.

The bathroom did get a new runner and a starfish accent. 


See how it was a bit bland before?


Plus I still have a few more weeks until our next house guest!

Please stop by and visit these lovely ladies who also stepped outside of their comfort zones, drank some wine, and changed things up in their own homes.

Any *almost* finished projects happening in your house?


Thanks for stopping by!

Yea, another almost finished project! I am so encouraged by the real story. And all the updates look so great that I'm sure no one will notice the things that are still waiting to be done. Fun use of color!

Looks like you rocked it to me! If anyone notices those short curtains, they shouldn't be invited back!
