Guest Bedroom Reveal

Well my friends, catastrophe hit this Tuesday. Our laptop has officially died and down with it went lots and lots of my photos. Enter sad face. I had most of them backed up on an external hard drive, but unfortunately had not exported any to it in MONTHS! Hmm, so bear with me as now I do not have a computer at home to blog on (unless I can talk hubs into letting me use his work laptop... just a little!) and no recent pictures.

However, I do still have the guest room pictures! A big thanks to my great friend, Candice, of Candice Lynn Photography for taking them!

The room is pretty much finished, and I've been excited to show you guys! I've posted a little about it {here} and {here}, but now it's time for the full reveal!

BEFORE


AFTER
Custom curtains and suzani print pillows made by my mother in law!

I bought this mirror from Southeastern Salvage and spray painted it a glossy white. I love the ornate detail.


Photos with friends and fam and a couple Auburn glomeratas sit on top of my childhood dresser.


Even the closet doors got facelift....

BEFORE: 

 AFTER:
Oh thank you 1960 ranch for double closets in two rooms. We love you for that.

Ok now back to the other parts of the room...
I just LOVE they way it all turned out! 

Suzani fabric and trim from Brentwood Interiors, center pillow and green coverlet are from PB.
 
 
 



Lamp base and shade from Target
Fabric and trim from Brentwood Interiors, surprised?

  3. Rachel, it looks fabulous! So warm and inviting - you did a great job! :)

    I haven't exported photos to our external hard drive in months either... which means no Halle photos backed up!! Eeeeek! We can't find the USB cord for it... better get on that soon.

  9. We just bought a house from the 1940's, but I'm pretty sure it was refinished in the 60's or 70's so out house looks a LOT like yours does/did! We are refinishing too, and our next big project is the kitchen! I'm so intimidated! I'll be posting pictures soon of the house! Have a good weekend! I love your updates!

  14. Your guest room looks very welcoming and as usual, I love all the meaningful pieces..your mother-in-law has done some great pieces, too. We are unfortunately so dependent on technology generally and of course, for writing our blogs - I feel your pain..we are having issues with connections and I my laptop is slowing down quite a bit (waiting for a new one) so I have a flashdrive handy. Good luck!

  22. Ok now I'm spazzing a little bit and want to back up our photos now. I'm so sorry about your photos. Is there any chance of recovery? A neighbor up the street spilled something on their laptop but they were able to recover the photos. Thanks for this PSA - a reminder that everyone should get in order to save often. And love the suzani pillows in your guest room - they are so pretty!

  35. What fabric did you use for the curtains? I think the detail at the top is great. Thanks for the close up of the top detail. Super nice guestroom. I have that same dresser from my childhood in our guest room also!
