Farmhouse Style Guest Room Reveal

5.02.2013

I dream of wide planked pine floors, an apron front sink in the kitchen, a claw foot tub in the bathroom, and a big front porch in my vintage or new to look vintage farm house. Only thing, it is all just a dream. Mr. Savvy has no desire to move so what's a girl to do, but to add some farmhouse style to the home I'm in.

So that's exactly what I did in the guest room....


First step was painting over the gray walls with Linen White by Benjamin Moore. This instantly made the room so much brighter. Bad thing is it took three coats.

My other cow hanging has found a new spot front and center over the bed. The other one is still hanging in the powder room.

The red plaid pillows were found at HomeGoods last year and are by Ralph Lauren. They have moved all over the house and then were in storage. Glad to be using them again.

This typography pillow is one of only three accessories purchased for this room makeover. I found it at the Pottery Barn outlet several weeks ago.

The cheap vintage quilt I found last year is the perfect touch for the bed.

I shared this table makeover with you a few days ago. I filled a reproduction farm style pitcher with yellow flowers and an ironstone plate for guests to place their smalls on. This is one of a pair of lamps found at the Pottery Barn outlet for a steal. Regularly $149 on sale for $49. Yip yip!


This is the other side of the bed. A few days after I had this room finished I remembered this rooster sign sitting on top of my kitchen cabinets and knew it would be perfect here.


 I removed the two shelves that were here before and added this church painting from the other guest room.

This is the wicker chair that was in the master bedroom and it works well in here. I then added the vintage blue enamel sign to the back of the chair with a piece of floral wire. The cushion is a large pillow that was in storage.

A yellow foot stool to prop your feet up and you can grab a magazine from the vintage orchard basket.

Originally I added a vintage basket on the wall and then I thought of using my apple painting and it is just the right fit for this room.

Of course there has to be a reading lamp. This was pulled from the sitting room to use here.

I removed the luggage rack and placed this vintage stool here under a clock I have had for years from Ballard's. Vintage quilts are stacked on top. I will pull the luggage rack back out for guests.

The red armoire got updated a bit and I will share details soon.




So did you guess farmhouse style when I gave you little teases?

Mr. Savvy said we will see how long it stays this way. I told him the nautical look stayed for three years.
That's long for me, but this will stay a good while. Possible accessory updates, but not a full room change.

You can see the before looks here.

By the way, this room has been finished a couple months. I'm not just whipping these things out as I reveal them. It is also funny I had this room finished before my sister finished her master bedroom and we used the same paint color and the cow art over the bed. I guess we really are related!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for another guest poster's fabulous favorite room.

Cost of makeover:
One gallon Benjamin Moore Regal Matte paint in Linen White: $46
Two Pottery Barn Outlet brass swing arm lamps: $100
Pottery Barn pillow cover: $25

  14. Kim! It's darling! So light and roomy! It's fun to watch you give new life to pieces in your home by painting and relocating them. The idea of placing the blue enamel sign on the wicker chair is a knock out! (It's a small detail speaks so loud!) I may have to borrow the idea to update a basket for the top of a cabinet...thank you, very much! As always, you inspire me.

  28. I like the big red and white checked drapes in the room
    I want a wing back chair covered in that same pattern

    it all looks great

  29. How about that? I really like how this room turned out. You'll be able to do lots of changes (if you want) in the future with the walls so neutral. This room definitely speaks farmhouse to me with the cow hanging, old quilts, ticking stripe and bushel basket on the floor. Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  30. It's fun to change things now and then. You definately got your farmhouse look in this space!

    ReplyDelete
  58. What a wonderful change. I loved the nautical so I wasn't sure what I would think of a change, but you did a great job. I love the grandmother's flower garden quilt and the stack of quilts on a stool.

    You have inspired me. I have an taller stool sitting in a corner and I think it just might get some quilts this weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Perfect!!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Beautiful job! Everything looks great with its mix of vintage and new, plus the color. What I am loving most is all the lighting! I am jealous of your lamps - especially your steals from PB. And your overhead light fixture may send me in a direction (finally!) in making a choice for our overhead lights in our bonus room. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I find that this room really reflects "your style"...You love a the casual, yet elegant feel of rooms...rooms that your family and friends can feel comfortable and welcomed...you have so accomplished this in this beautiful room....I love everything about it...and I think that you are right, I do not think that Mr. Savvy will find this room changing much in the future...a little accessory change here and there, but the farmhouse feel will stay as it makes you happy.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'm impressed that you got three coats from one gallon! Looks great, Kim. But, then I knew it would. ;) blessings ~ tanna

  65. We have the same dream...mine has the farmhouse sink and a kitchen with beadboard ceilings and barn wood floors. My dream will most likely never come true either...so thank you for sharing how to bring a little farmhouse into the home we already have!

  66. Love your bedroom and kitchen. Dreams do come true.
