Our guest bedroom ended up being one of our favorite (and least used) rooms in the house. It has a really fun, playful feel to it.
We incorporated a lot of outdoorsy elements, which was different from the rest of our house and felt really special and unique!
- Scrape ceilings – instead of scraping the ceilings in here, we added a tongue and groove cedar plank ceiling. Wow – it made a huge impact and turned out just gorgeous. It’s really a show stopper in person!
- Add crown molding – we added flat board crown in here as part of the ceiling project.
- Paint walls – we ended up doing a 3/4 color blocked wall in here. I think the white top really brightens up the space, and the lower color, Behr’s Tower Bridge, is really bold and fun without being overwhelming.
- Add blinds to windows – we added white faux wood blinds to all of the windows.
- Update closest doors – we used molding to give our closet doors a faux barn door look!
Other projects we did:
- Horizontal gallery wall – We showcased some of our favorite national parks with a linear gallery wall opposite the bed.
- Shelving with DIY wood brackets – We added a single bookshelf over the head of the bed and built simple wooden brackets to hold it in place.
- DIY platform bed – Sean built this bed for less than $50!
- DIY side tables – Sean built a pair of mid-century inspired wooden side tables that are really light and airy looking in this space.
- DIY console tables – Sean also built this modern console table as a place for guests to set items when they visit.
- Craft storage closet– We added shelves inside the closet to be storage for all of our crafting supplies.
