I first saw my future guest bedroom in a tiny listing photo:
When I moved in, I got started right away. Even my dear Granny was a huge help by taking down some of the wallpaper!
After replacing the carpet and getting it to usable space (not pretty, but usable), I let it sit while I focused on all of the other rooms of the house that needed attention on the first floor, like the kitchen, dining room, and laundry room. It was basically a storage area until we cleaned it out in 2018.
Realizing this room might never be completed at the pace I was going, I decided to make it my next Dueling DIY candidate and challenged my friend Charlotte from At Charlotte’s House to help me find the motivation I needed. That began our battle, complete with a “before” video tour and mood board!
Just like that, I suddenly found inspiration and got to work. The room got new paint, picture ledges, and a Murphy bed! By having the bed fold up along the wall, it will help the room serve double duty for my boyfriend’s new office.
And here’s where we stand for now! We’ve still got some work ahead of us, but I think this room is shaping up to be one of my favorites.
