Once a kindergarten teacher, now your go-to guide for all things DIY. My passion for teaching didn't stop when I left the classroom - I merely switched from ABCs to DIYs. I've learned a lot from transforming my own home from scratch, and now I'm here to pass on that knowledge to you.
Hey friends! We have an exciting project that we’re starting to work on which is making over our guest bedroom. If you’ve been here for a little while, then you know it already went under one transformation. Which was taking it from the burgundy and yellow walls from when we moved in to a more calming space. You can see that before and after below.
It was a quick fix for us at the time and a breath of fresh air. But that was two years ago and I’ve been itching to get my hands on it again. Especially since I have honed in on my home style a little more and the current room just doesn’t scream us. So, I’ll be teaming up with IKEA for this project as we transform the guest bedroom to be more moody, welcoming, and a pretty cool hang out spot for our guests. You just might even catch us hanging out in there as well. Here’s what I have planned for the space.
The only thing I have left to pick out for the space is the wall color. I’m going with a darker color, probably green, but I’m not sure where exactly it’s going to go. For example, on the ceiling, all of the walls, halfway up the walls, etc. I’m hoping once I get the furniture in there, it will help my decision process a little more.
But overall I’m loving the design and the furniture that I’ll be using from IKEA. There’s a lot of darker furniture that I plan to mix with wood accents. The main one being the wood accent wall that will be the big DIY project in the space. Of course, things can change as I start to piece the room together but that is the fun part! I can’t wait to share this space with you. Make sure to follow along on Instagram for a lot of the behind the scenes as I take you along with me. Stay tuned!
