Guest Room

This is the closet in my guest room.


It's pretty much where out of season\out of room decor goes to die.  It's packed, so I'm sure you can imagine what the rest of the room looked like....picture a queen bed and desk with tons of crap everywhere.  School starts for me in a week and I've been dreading doing something with this room all summer, I just wasn't inspired and then I realized it was because we never used the room.   Rarely do we have guests spend the night, my parents live 15 minutes down the road so relatives usually stay at their house.  I made the decision to get rid of the queen bed and turn it into a bedroom for Madison {yes, for those of you keeping count, this is her 3rd room in 2 years!} I'm leaving her old room as is and making it the playroom...aka where you shove all the toys and shut the door.


I wanted to do vertical stripes, good thing Home Depot had a special deal on a 3 pack of Scotch painters tape!


Also, this blue restickable putty is fabulous for holding the laser lever on the wall while you are taping!


I used {Martha's} Cobblestone and Hocking Pink with Behr Pure White.


The room is still a little bare, but she did want the 'pwetty' birds in her room :)


The curtains are so cute, with chandy's on it {Target}



That's all for now, I'm happy to have a new room to 'fill' up again!

  1. I looooove it. I wish I was as motivated as you! My last project wiped me out! I don't want to redecorate for a long time! & I may be crazy, but are the chandeliers on the curtains upside down?

  4. Dang your a great painter!!! I love the stripes and great color choices.
    Oh and this is funny but I think I saw the exact starburst/bird hanging on the movie "Monsters Ball" the other day. Sammy was flipping channels and caught some of it. Well in Hale Berry's house there was one jut like it on the wall. I was like "where the heck have I seen that before??". Crazy!

  26. I love the way you did the stripes in your daughter's room? I was just wondering what the width was of each different color of stripe? If you don't mind sharing, I would really appreciate it!
