Guest Bedroom Makeover

Our guest bedroom is in quite a state. First of all it is painted a weird peachy orange. The blinds on the windows are cheap and the strings are all tangled up. The dresser that currently resides in there is from God knows when- it is old. It is my goal over the summer to update this room as well as get a desk in there so we have a space to get work done when we are home. 

This picture is serving as my inspiration:
The color on the wall — Benjamin Moore's Harbor Haze — also freshens up a very traditional floral headboard. Design: Allison Caccoma. 

I love the wall color- Benjamin Moore Harbor Haze .  I also love the idea of a floral headboard and am going to try my hand at DIY-ing a headboard. 

The dresser is going to get sanded down and get a fresh coat of paint. I'm thinking a variation of kelly green for the dresser. Kind of like this (with different knobs):

I have two brown wood bedside tables that will remain as is in there. The bed is currently draped in this and that will stay as well:

I am currently on the hunt for a desk. I found one I liked at Ikea but my husband is currently over Ikea because the dresser in our room is pretty much falling apart. I would also like to add Roman shades to the windows in the room but those things are pricey so I'm trying to hunt down the best price!

This is what I am thinking so far. Who knows what the end product will look like!


  1. I want a green piece of furniture!

    I got my headboard on Joss and Main for like $190. It can easily be slipcovered.

    Shades and curtains are the worst!!! So much money. I just got the Johnathan Adler curtains from JC Penny. They are pretty good quality...

    BTW - my guest room is navy and white!

  2. LOVE the makeover!! I will totally help you make a headboard and paint!

  3. Hello there, Pris! :) The photo was indeed a great inspiration, but that's mainly on the bed part. How about the other parts of your room? Do you have plans in mind? You've mentioned about your window too. If you're worrying about roman shades being pricey, why not look for another window treatment? There are many ideas out there that will suit your preference.
