guest bedroom makeover-One Room challenge-week two

by Julie Nichols, April 13, 2017
We are in week two of the ORC  (catch up on week 1 here) and things are moving along.  Today is prep day, the dreaded part of any makeover.  If I had a magic wand I would totally skip this part and go right to the fun part of decorating!  I have to remind myself that to get to the pretty you have to fix the ugly, so I better get started with this makeover, because week 6 will be here before I know it.


Let's take a look at the process to this madness: 

I partnered with my husband on this makeover!  We decided to keep the paneling and paint over it because I think it will give the bedroom a farmhouse feel. 

We started by pulling all of the nails and cup hooks out of the wall and ceiling. Then I scrubbed the paneling with soap and water. Next, we spackled all of the holes.  Whew! 

 Preparing a room for a makeover feels like it takes forever.  Everything is out of place and the room looks worse than when we started.  

This picture was here when we purchased the house.
 The quote is so inspirational!  I want to share it with you for this challenge.

And this is the direction I am heading

  1. I agree that things always look worse before they can get better. Our project is a disaster right now, haha. I really like the idea of painting over the paneling for more interest on the walls. Your selections are really pretty! And that quote is perfect!

  4. Thank you for sharing this idea. You give us an amazing idea how to makeover a guest bedroom. Never thought of this kind of idea can be applied in guest bedroom.
