Guest Room Before and After

Since the guest room was a pre-blog project I don’t have any pictures of it in progress. Trust me when I say that every item in this room could be its own post! Here are the before and after pictures…I wanted this room to have a totally different color scheme and design than the rest of my house, and it certainly does!
The before..

  52. Just found your blog. Gotta say…you must have watched and love The Christmas Story (hubby's fav Christmas movie). I say…um, type that because of the lamp. Fragile. Must be French…yep, I've watched it with him once or twice.

  53. We are totally fans, we watch it every year! The leg lamp was actually a wedding gift from my BIL…we've been married for almost eight years now and that lamp has always been a little awkward – I love that it has a home now!

  54. I do not drop a great deal of comments, however I browsed a ton
    of remarks here Guest Room Before and After — Domestic Imperfection.
    I actually do have some questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be just me or does it look like like a few of these responses look like they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at other sites, I would like to keep up with you. Would you make a list of the complete urls of your social networking sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
