Okay ladies, I have been debating on our guest room / mother in law suite. I need some feedback. What I thought that I was doing I am now thinking of changing. Back in the fall I purchased this Country Living bedding from Kmart. My original thinking was to paint the walls blue like the pic and maybe eventually add the board and batten. We have a headboard we made from a door and I was going to strip it form the pinky mauvy color it currently is and paint/distress it black. I was going to go with a blue/black/white theme.
Then I started thinking how expected that is and how more imaginative it could be. I am now thinking of painting the headboard red like this one!? That way the pink mauvy color does not need to be stripped but I can call it a primer.Ha!
The bedding has to stay the same because at this time I just do not have the funds to redo it totally. So now I want to find a throw/blanket in yellow to lay at the end of the bed.
I have a Better Homes & Garden table almost exactly like this as a side table and then a white cottage looking table that I use to have in the nursery on the other side.
Do you think it would all flow and has the possibility of looking like a welcoming comfy french country cottage chic retreat?? Not so sure about the wall color either. Should I go blue as originally planned or a light yellow or a creamy antique white? I am planning on accessorizing with a white rocking chair again from the old nursery and doing a plate display on the wall. I also hope to find some old vintage trays with flowers painted on them. I have seen them around blog land in black and some even in red! I have been on the hunt but no luck thus far. I also am on the hunt for a china cabinet that I will do in a distressed black. I will take out the glass and replace with chicken wire and a fab behind that. It will go on the opposite wall as the bed and be a place to store some clothes of our guest and hopefully a small flat screen TV.
What kind of curtains should I do?? I was going to do white sheets hanging from vintage hangers. Now with the color change not sure that will look right.
I am hoping to start on the transformation this week. Also whatever I do will have to spill over into the adjoining bath. That inspiration will come from the bedroom. So ladies let me know what ya think!???
