Guest Room Redo Reveal

Well, a redo wouldn't be complete without the before and after pictures, so I'll try my best to coordinate them....with a few of the "during redo" stage thrown in.   This guest room is off the dining room, and it began with some old, dated wallpaper....in the corner a furnace vent was covered with three layers of wallpaper....nothing else.  The paper was peeling in places and really needed to go.  I wanted the room to be completed before Mr. Whimzie's mom comes to visit in August.

The new color of the room is actually called baked bread, a creamy tan/wheat...but it isn't showing up in this picture.                                                                                                         

Remember the old blue cabinet I found at an estate sale a few months ago?  I painted it black, with a red interior and it looks great in this room.

These two walls were a mess....I had to re-plaster a lot of the area.

Those with sharp eyes may notice that the corner with the duct isn't completed yet...the Mister has the wood cut and I need to paint it and put it up...it will look much better.

I'm wishing the paint color was a little darker.....but I'm going to live with it for a while before I decide to repaint.

 Thought I would also share with you some pictures of a couple of things I created for myself lately.

Mr. Whimzie is taking 1/2 a day off today and we are heading over to our son, Scott's house to pick up our 'grand-puppy' Moose, who will be staying with us while 'mom and dad' go on a little trip for the next week.....but don't worry....I'm having them pay us back....they are coming here to watch all our critters while we go away in August.

Wishing you blessings on your day!
