Remembering the Guest Room Transformation

I haven't done much to the guest room in recent months, but thought I'd share with you how it's changed.

Below is a before photo guest room that my sister sent.  As you can see, the paint was still the builder white. Since this room was barely used, I hadn't even purchased blinds and was still covering the windows with some old curtains. There was an old dresser in there, but no headboard or nightstand.

Below is after the room was painted. I bought the Bassett nightstand and a bed from a friend's garage sale. A few month later we found the matching tall dresser on Craigslist. The sheers were purchased at Lowe's.
Found the lamp and red pillow at HomeGoods. The room looked finished at this point, but I still didn't like the comforter.



I picked up a white matellase bedcover at HomeGoods and put the floral pillows behind some white ones. The striped bedskirt remained, as well. The white bedcover makes the room  look a lot cleaner and uncluttered.
Hope everyone had a terrific weekend! We were hoping for some cooler weather this weekend, but it is still very hot and steamy here in North Carolina! Has it cooled off a bit where you live yet?
