The Guest Room Begins It's Makeover

With the weather cooperating for a few more days, I decided to tackle the third floor bedroom. 

It had been my son's bedroom until last fall when he moved to the apartment over the detached garage. 

Now that it's been vacated, my brain has been dreaming about how to make it into a nice guest bedroom.  It has an adorable full bath attached, which makes it perfect. 

Here's what it looked like this morning - basically a storage room with extra furniture, linens, rugs, and pillows.  It also holds a gun cabinet which will be moved promptly.  Guests won't feel very "guesty" while staring at a bunch of rifles. 

Another nice feature of this room, besides the abundant sunshine, is the window seat.  The floor is solid wood except the raised area (where the bed will go) which is carpeted.  This room was originally a sun porch until the previous owner converted it into a bedroom.  Because of that, the ceiling is pretty low.

I got to work on the room this morning, patching nail holes and wiping down walls.  After that, I started painting the room a pale blue color.  Tomorrow, I'll show you what I did with the bed pictured in the first picture.  Everything's getting a makeover!


  1. What a gorgeous room! So many possibilities. Can't wait to see the final result. Bet it's going to be awesome.

  2. Love the windows and all the sunshine! Can't wait to see the makeover!
