Guest Bedroom Reveal

I've been working on the transforming our Guest Bedroom for MONTHS!
It seems like forever.

Our guest bedroom worked for us, but I wanted to lighten and freshen up the decor just a bit since we're getting our house ready to sell and it's the first bedroom you see when you come up the stairs.
I also wanted to spend as little money as possible, which is always a challenge. 

I'm excited to share it with you today, especially because this little makeover cost us: zero, zip, nada. I even made a few dollars on the makeover
More on that later...

Repurposing Old Art

Most of you know that we're working (slowly) on getting the house ready to put on the market. We were hoping for this summer, but it now looks like it's not going to be until next Spring. 

One of the rooms I've been working on (slowly) is the guest room. It's the first bedroom you see when you go upstairs and I wanted it to look good. The colors were dated and since we needed to make room for a special treasure from my mother in law's estate, the dark furniture had to go, especially because we were lightening things up.
What does all that have to do with the above photo???

Looking Forward To Fall

 I know Fall is still a month or so off, but the weather cools off around here at the end of August, which is only  a few more weeks away. In fact, mornings are already a little cooler and the days aren't as hot as they have been all summer long. I know we might have another heat spell, but it's comforting to know that all that hot summer weather is behind us. 

This year I'm really looking forward to mums in the garden...
