After coming home from a recent vacation I flew into some strange full on "nesting" mode. I don't know if it was inspired by seeing a new place or brought on by too much time in the car thinking about things, but when we got home I decided I couldn't live another minute with our guest room as it was. It was fine, it was passable, it needed curtains! When we moved in it was an "okay" color of light grey. I was never crazy about it, but as far as neutrals go it was not bad. My real issue with it came after my friend gave me a beautiful tufted velvet headboard in a rust orange color that just didn't go with grey (this will be funny later). I wanted the room to have a more "outdoorsy" feel, like sleeping in a forest...though it ended up more like a meadow, I'm still very pleased!
I'm the worst in the world at "before" pictures, I get so excited that I jump right in and only later think about what I should have done. What I'm saying is, I'll work on it, but for now the best I can do is prep pictures! After we moved all of the furniture out (to serve as a reminder about how we never want to move again) I set about papering the floors like wrapping a hardwood present!
