Guest Room Makeover Complete

Our guest room is finally complete!

This room literally took one weekend to put together and came in right at $200 total. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so here's about a million words worth:

Once more, the Before:
And now, the After:




The nightstand was an old one we already on hand purchased from Target several years ago. I had actually painted it awhile back, but it was starting to chip. The secret to painting laminate is to first prime with primer made for non-sanded surfases (like laminate). The ensures that the paint has something to adhere to. I did not do this when I first painted this a few years ago, and the paint has chipped pretty bad.
I used my favorite primer Zinsser and grabbed some leftover paint we had from Justin's 'man/music room'. I also purchased a new knob from Hobby Lobby for $2 (it was 50% off).
And it now looks like this-
The lamp was also previously purchased from Habitat for Humanity ReStore for $5. I spray painted it glossy white and added a new shade from Target.

Most accessories I already has on hand. The ceramic garden stool and accent pillows are from Home Goods.

In case you haven't gotten enough of this room, I actually filmed a short video tour. My first ever video shot and shot on my i-phone, so the quality is not great.
Here you go-


TGIAF! xoxo, S
