My husband has been on my case to get ride of my thrift store finds and other nifties that are taking up space. I believe his exact words were “use it or loose it.” So when I set out to makeover this guest room I challenged myself to not spend any money on furnishings or accessories. With the exception of 1 gallon of paint and the DIY headboard I didn’t spend anything. I re-purposed, re-painted, re-used things from our old home and other rooms of our current home.
Without further adieu…
Guest Room Before.
Silly me, took “before” pictures after I painted this wall brown.
Imagine the true “before’s” as having a white wall.
This yellow cabinet is mine from when I was a child.
Those curtains are actually X-Long Twin sheets hung by ring clips.
