Makeover Monday // Guest Room Overhaul

This room belongs to my "adopted" brother, who lives with us for 5 months out of the year. I'm so mad because I cannot find the before pictures, but trust me, it was bad.
I joked that it was where old furniture went to die. It was ugly. It had builder beige on the walls ( in flat, EEK ) along with furniture I had intended to refinish, recover etc. I finally just bit the bullet, tossed the crap and bought new.

It was a relatively cheap makeover though! I wanted a very very clean feeling room, and to keep it masculine I stuck with dark finishes but light fabrics.

There's a lot of Ikea in this room, as you'll see. The Bed and Nightstands(craigslist ), Wall Lamp, Ottoman (free on the side of the road ) Navy Pillow Cover, and Sofa are all Ikea.

Speaking of Lamp...isnt she a beaut?

These cozy Euro Shams are via Pottery Barn clearance, I scored BOTH for $22 shipped.
P.S. Cheapest places for Euro Inserts is Overstock.com



The room was flip flopped for a long time, I had the bed in this living area but this arrangement is far better. 

Frames are Ikea Ribba, Table was custom, Chair was Craigslist $15, Pillow Nordstrom Clearance, Lamp was Marshalls Clearance.

The sofa was nearly brand new off of Craigslist, It's Ikea, scored for $100 and the quality is pretty great.


Hiding under the table is the rolling Ottoman I recovered ( read about it here )

I found this guy on clearance for $29 ( reg $139 at World Market )


And finally these Bamboo Roman Shades from JCP.com were $18 a piece!




The paint is my all time favorite grey, Dolphin Fin. It's also used in my daughters room.
I'll be adding accessories here and there, but it's pretty much finished.

Pin me!
