Coming in at the eleventh hour of One Room Challenge week six with my guest room reveal. Although this has been a six week long process, the reveal week somehow snuck up on me. I just needed a few finishing touches for the room, and somehow those last few details seemed to stress me out the most.
I'll start you off with a few before pictures. I always hate looking back at these once the room is complete. I don't think I realized just how drab the room was!
The bed was T's grandmother's, passed down to us several years ago. The vanity is an antique that was my desk when I was in college, and the stool was my maternal great-grandmother's sewing bench from years and years ago. We filled the room with wedding photos, pictures from our newborn shoot, and a very special Clay Rice silhouette that I had made for Thompson. The silver trays belonged to my paternal grandfather, trophies he won for having prized roses through his city's rose society in the mid sixties. And lastly, the tassels on the lamps are an ode to my jewelry business, my livelihood.
My challenge for this room was to give the space a new look without going above a $150 budget. And, I'm proud to say I did it! I used things that I already owned, swapped out lamps for some that we had in our foyer, bartered with my bestie for some beautiful handmade pillows, and scoured the aisles of Target and discount stores. I must say, I love how the room turned out, and knowing that I changed the entire look and vibe of the space for $150 bucks makes it even sweeter.
Since many of the items in this room are old and repurposed, I cannot provide links to everything, but I have provided some shoppable links to a few things still available.
