This past weekend I finally painted the closet doors in the guest bedroom and erased the last remnant of brown paint from the room.
So today I thought I’d share an update with you.
Here’s the tan paint color of the bedroom when we moved in.
I painted it right away because it felt so dark in there..… and although I’m taking these pictures on an overcast day, I hope you get a sense of how light the room is now.
I found this very cool picture of Van Gogh in a Huntington Beach Goodwill store and I was immediately smitten with the vibrant, gorgeous blues in it. It became my inspiration for the room.
Plus for five bucks I couldn’t pass it up.
It seemed perfect for a cottage beach bedroom and I hung my vintage bamboo coat rack over it with some beach hats.
I placed the King size bed on the longest wall and decided to go for symmetry with two lamps and side tables on either side.
But even though the lamps are the same I didn’t want matchy match bed tables in here.
I’d been lugging two vintage suitcases around with me forever and recently I found the perfect size suitcase to complete a side table.
Trimmed in navy blue too.
The other table is made of black iron and is practically the same height.
Another one of my projects for this bedroom was to paint this pine chest.
I decided to leave the drawers alone and painted the entire frame black. Then I applied a clear wax and painted the knobs white. It actually fits the nautical vibe I’ve got going, even though I was really just being lazy (not wanting to paint those drawers).
I’ve been collecting beach themed oil paintings and this old lobster is actually covering up a hole that a plumber made, thank you Mr. Lobster.
previous owners had tan walls and these panels
Now replaced with lined linen drapes from my old home and bamboo shades.
(Someday I’d love to trim the windows)
This headboard is actually the footboard from the bed frame in our Master. I just spray painted it white since it doesn’t fit in there with our smaller room size.
(I’m still looking for the right pillows…)
The once yellow-looking closet doors are now Winter Gray.
I took this picture with my IPhone on a cloudy day but it gives you an idea of the room.
Lucky I got those closet doors painted before the rain came.
So tell me. Have you been working on any project lately?
