Jewel Box Guest Room After Photos
My guest room remodel has been a work in progress, I started last May after I completely cleaned out and stripped my guest room down. Here are some before shots:
See my post on how I did the trim, chandelier and painting.
And built the bed.
And made the armoire.
And refinished the nightstands.
I made the curtains out of fabric and a bed sheet, tutorial here.
See the chair recover and table tutorials (coming soon).
See the hallway makeover here.
I made the bench from scraps and leftover fabric, see that here.
A few details in the room I want to point out:
After my parents cleaned out their attic, I uncovered this Norman Rockwell canvas print that used to be in my room when I was little. I LITERALLY have wanted to frame it since I saw it, maybe since I was 5 years old. Better late than never right? I am not one to like many pieces of art, but this one has always stuck with me.
Published 1954 cover- Artwork titled "Girl in the Mirror".
A closeup of the Norman Rockwell Print. I could write a short story about my
feelings about this print. You know how a picture is worth a 1000 words?
This one is about 2000 for me.
Design can come at any price,
This room mixes high price items- (for me this is high price), like the wall plaque my sister in law gave me from Ballard Designs, $300.00
But, the lamps were 20 dollars each from IKEA.
And the tables would have been trash, if I did not refinish them, there were a lot of free pieces that I transformed because I saw the potential.
Hope you love the finished room as much as I do.
