The Guest Bedroom, redo

We spent much of last weekend painting. Which wasn't too bad as our paint spot was on the front porch and the weather last weekend was phenomenal.

Our guestbedroom was looking a little sad. Here's a before:

Lets recap: random broken chair on far left, mismatched linens (especially the pillows), broken side table. Also this room has become a collect-all for items that don't really have a home and/or need to go up in the attic.

Solution: new bedding and two new tables.

I purchased two side tables from antique stores and we proceeded to paint them an off white.

And... Here's the after:

Ignore the glass on the bed, that is being put away. Also, for the sake of testing things out, making final decisions I did not put the down comforter in the duvet yet. I wanted to see how it would look without going through that hassle yet. Plus, I want to keep Bosco off the new things as long as possible.

This is my favorite table. Its the perfect height and is much more interesting than the previous table. Plus it adds a place to put a glass on that side of the bed. We are planning to put the dog crate away before guests come to stay. Isn't the new lamp perfect in here? It makes the room so much more home-y.

Here's the other table. I like that it offers some hidden storage. It relives the closet of some of the overflow.

I still have a little more styling, putting away, and finishing touches to make. But at least you are able to get an idea of our progress. What do you think?

Is looking so much better. It will be easier to keep that room neat now that you have invested some attention on the room. I am looking forward to seeing in person!!! Love the new tables! Mom

Ohhhh, I love it! I can't wait until I get to the stage of decorating. I am tired of painting. I might call you so that we can go antique shopping and exploring because you are so amazing. I could never find stuff like that.
