Linda at Restyled Homes has challenged us to do a post about a makeover we have done. I did this last summer and have posted pictures before, but I thought I would play along and post some new ones. Click to enlarge, if you like.
This room has belonged to various boys over the years and once they were all gone I claimed it as the Guest Room. The warm, neutral wall color is Weston Flax by Benjamin Moore. The furnishings were a catchall. The bed was once my pride and joy...shiny brass (plated?) from 1988 when I went out on my own with my two young boys. I bought bronze metallic paint and after priming the brass, I gave it two coats of bronze with a sponge brush. Instant update!
The dresser is one of those heavy nasty dark pine jobs that I inherited with Bob. He had several other pieces that have disappeared, where I can't say. His plaid upholstered pieces found new homes, thank goodness. I wanted to throw the dresser out and then thought the storage was useful, so why not invest a few bucks in some paint and new hardware. I rather like the way it came out. Not perfect, but perfectly imperfect and it houses lots of stuff and don't you love that cute rooster tassel??
