Guest Bedroom Remodel


This project started in Spring 2003 when we decided our guest bedroom was next on the list of rooms that sorely needed a refresh.   The dull white walls and old dingy miniblinds had to go!

Dede chose Ralph Lauren California Poppy paint which, with the morning sun, makes the room glow!  Rob found the funky Medusa lamp on eBay.   Some sunny yellow tab-top curtains & a little Ikea artwork provide the finishing touches.

Bold new bedding & matching rug!

Rob's "Trading Spaces" art project looked pretty good, but Karen from KC found just the right thing to complete it...

We found a "Ready To Assemble" armoire at Lowe’s in Midland that seemed like a perfect fit.

We found some cool knobs to match the switchplate & color scheme in a clearance bin at Lowe’s.
