Bonus Room Reveal.....guestroom side

3.06.2017

Sorry for the teaser post yesterday that only showed the before of the bonus room. Now, that you have those images burned in your head welcome to the lighter, brighter and cozy bonus room guestroom.





E.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g I used in this room was shopped from the house.



This nightstand was in the French style guest room and was hidden on the other side of the bed.



This was the very first milk paint project I did and it is still chipping.







After replacing the drapes in the other guest rooms last year it left me with these neutral panels from Pottery Barn and they are perfect in here. They were hung as high as we could get them.





This chest moved from another guest room and my old dining room hutch filled that spot.

I decorated the top of the chest with the same things that were on it in the other room.



I forgot this chair has brass tacks on it so I'm glad those are seen now.



This bench moved from the sunroom and I placed my French ticking pillows on it and my giant dough bowl under it holding an extra quilt. Yes, a small update happened in the sunroom, too.

New large school house lights replaced old ugly florescent lights.

This caned bench moved from the master after I replaced it with the new tufted bench.

I love the guest room side being closer to the window so the room is filled with light. The other end is the workout side and I will share it later. There's still a little work to finish on that side.


What we did:
1. Cleaned out most of the room and carried things to a consignment store and GoodWill.
2. Repaired bad places on the wall and ceiling with joint compound and sanded said spots.
3. Painted the walls and ceiling with Benjamin Moore Regal Matte paint in French Canvas half of the room at a time while shifting things left in room from one side to the other.
4. Painted the bed in Annie Sloan chalk paint in French Linen.
5. Replaced the florescent lights.
6. Moved furniture in and styled the room.

Also stripped a table in the middle of this project and will share that soon.

Still to do:
1. Paint the door.
2. Get new television hooked up on workout side of the room.
3. Have a glass of wine and celebrate a job that is finally finished!

    1. Sandy, most of my pillows are pillow covers I change out and they are stored in a lidded basket or two. The inserts are in the bedroom closets.

  12. LOVE your new space. How pretty.
    I have a question about chalk paint. You mentioned that your bedside table is still chipping. I am finishing a desk that I am up cycling for my one granddaughter. I had her help pick out the Ann Sloan chalk paint color she wanted me to paint it with. I've been reading up on how to use chalk paint for the last few months. I'm getting a little nervous now because a couple days ago I read someone's comments about the paint and how the finish doesn't hold up under alot of use when the clear wax is used as a finish. I have the paint, clear wax and the dark wax to be used for shadowing. Do you think using the final coat of clear wax will be durable enough to withstand a 10 year old using the desk? Or should I use a clear coat of varnish after painting the desk.

    1. Cindy, the nightstand was painted with milk paint not chalk paint. Milk paint is supposed to chip. The bed is painted with chalk paint. It can scratch pretty easily so you may want to use a good latex paint instead for a child's desk.

  13. Love everything except the chipping nightstand. Just too rustic for my taste. I have a fluorescent in my office I want to take down so badly but when we switched out the ones in the kitchen, it left indentations in the ceiling that the new round fixtures would not cover. It's a swirled finished instead of popcorn. Didn't want to patch because we didn't want to have to paint ceiling. You were fortunate to have a smooth ceiling. Love your blog.

    1. I understand it isn't everyone's cup of tea. We had to repair holes where the lights were attached to the ceiling.

  27. Kim, your guest room looks so inviting. I love all the neutral colors and the simplicity of this room. If you have an exercise space here too, this must be a large room. Kudos to you and your husband for a job well done!

  28. Very pretty and nice to use up extra things. And does it ever feel good to get rid of loads of stuff and create a nice space. I am sort of doing the opposite around here...we have five bedrooms so I am turning a few into other things. There always seems to be things to work on when you are a homey person.

  29. Kim....You do such a beautiful job of moving your quilts and pillows from room to room....I'm trying to achieve that same versatility. Do use choose WHITE or IVORY quilts to accomplish that beautiful flow of colors and accessories ???? Hard to differentiate between ivory and white on my monitor. Thanks

  42. Kim,
    This room is both lovely and cozy. I love the painted sleigh bed! Can you share the color with me? I just acquired one from a friend and its stained dark mahogany. I think your color would look splendid on this bed.
    All your posts inspire me and give me energy to follow your lead and get my projects planned and completed. Thank you!
    Anne
