Updated Guest Rooms

This is the room that the adults stay in when they visit.

I don’t think this before picture needs any explanation!

It now has a serene sorta beachy feel where the guests can just relax.

The bedspread was crocheted by my Great Aunt so I don’t let kids or dogs on this bed.

This room is where the grandkids sleep.

This is the first room that we redid because it took a while to remove all of that flowered wallpaper!

I designed these beds years ago and the Capt. built them.  What I love most about them is that they have lots of storage under the mattresses. Also, although I keep them pushed together in the corner like what we used to call “Bahama Beds”, they can either be separated into 2 twin beds or be pushed together to make a king bed if need be.

A  little trick I did with the bedspread really tickles me.

I bought a king size chenille spread and cut it in half.  Then I sewed Velcro strips to the cut edge and now when I make the bed into a king, I have a bedspread that fits it as well.

This is the guest bathroom.

Yeap, more wallpaper to remove!

I just love how this turned out and I still get giddy when I look at my sink.  I had a picture from a magazine that I was copying inspired by, but when I priced the sink I almost scrapped the whole thing.  Then one morning while I was on Target’s website, I saw a white desk on sale for $99.00 with free shipping.   I knew the Capt. could put a little sink in it and it looks just like those high-end ones.

OK, so this wasn’t in the magazine picture but I just had to have it. It adds just the right touch of whimpsy.

Come back Monday to see the master bedroom and master bath redo.

  1. Ok…I didn’t know the corner beds were called bahama beds. That is a new one on me!
    I liked them turned that way and right away, it reminded me of my teen years!
    Cool trick on the bedspread.
    I like the bathroom– and what a great idea to turn the $99 desk into a sink and counter.

    I love all the makeovers of your rooms.
