Another Room Bites The Dust

Another room checked off the list.

This is what was my office up until last Saturday...now it has become our guest bedroom.

And this is where it began...plain white walls.

Being inspired by this fabulous blogger...I decided to do stripes in this small {only 8' x 9'}space...and love the results.

I love the way it turned out...simple and cozy.

The best part about this makeover....it cost only $50.oo in paint and $13.00 for the bamboo blind...that's it. The rest was found "shopping" around the house...including the daybed {which was red...and I painted it a soft gray}.

Another room bites the dust!


  1. Andrea, it looks amazing!!! Where do I start the pillows, the stripes, the lamp, that sweet little clock... I can't wait to see your other rooms!

    Have a great weekend!


  2. Hi Andrea! Love It!! You did an awesome job! Love the stripes too! Everything about it says... Beautiful..Restful.. & Peaceful.. Just what you need in a bedroom! Your guests will not want to leave!
    Hope you guys have a great weekend!

  3. It is all so pretty and welcoming ~ great job!

  4. Hi Andrea!

    I LOVE this look! I'm redoing my den right now and am busy zipping up pillows for my daybed! I found the bolster inserts on line for five dollars each! Still have loads of sewing to do though!

    Now, that little white table on the right? I think I have one exactly like it! It was my grandmothers, recently passed down to me from my Mum. It's in the photo on my right side bar with the painted entry floor! Is it the same? Well, mine's as is...I have chairs that my grandmother used with it so I don't want to paint it...

    Have a wonderful weekend!


    PS...Your header is glorious!

  7. Andrea!

    It looks fantastic! I love it! Everything in the room looks great...the bed, the pillows, the bamboo blind...I could go on and on! I so want to do those stripes in my half bath or dining room.
