Guest Bedroom Makeover Update

Welcome back to my home! It’s somehow been six months since I had one of my guest bedrooms wallpapered and I realized I never showed it to you. Ack! Sorry about that. (You can see ‘the before’ of this space HERE.)

Today, I’m inviting you into the space to show you my beautiful new bird wallpaper, share a few other decor finds for the space, and tell you about my future plans to get this room decorated.

Sanderson Woodland Chorus Wallpaper

First, let’s start with the wallpaper. For this room, I decided on the Woodland Chorus Wallpaper in cream/multi. And when I say, “I decided on it,” I mean my Mom did the choosing! When my Mom comes to stay for a visit, this is “her” room. So, it was only natural for her to do the selecting and this is the pattern/design she chose. We both saw it on @vibekedesign via Instagram. When she suggested it, I knew it would be a winner.

Since I neither have the skill nor the patience to wallpaper a room, I hired out the task to professionals. They did an amazing job. I even had them wallpaper the closet which is just the cutest space.

Side note: Those of you with a good eye might notice that I’m missing outlet covers. Well, that’s because I want to replace the outlets and therefore, I didn’t put the covers back on. One project at a time.

Vintage Crystal Chandelier

Once the wallpaper was up, I knew I wanted a vintage crystal chandelier for the room, so my hunt began. About a month ago I found this chandelier at a somewhat local antique store and knew immediately it would be perfect for the space.

The ceilings are rather low on my second floor (maybe 8ft or a little more), so I knew any chandelier was going to be a bit low. Thankfully it hangs above the bed, so I don’t think anyone will be bumping their head.

Original Bunny Artwork

As you might have suspected, I’m taking my time with the decor in this room. Ninety percent of what’s in this room is just pieces that I already owned. Things seem to work in the space and look pretty good, but the plan is to slowly swap things out as I find replacements.

One thing I couldn’t pass up on was this beautiful original artwork of a bunny from one of my favorite artists, Sandi Hester. I’ve had my eye on this piece for a while and as soon as I selected this wallpaper, I knew this bunny needed to hop his way into this room.

I just received the artwork about a week ago and was so thrilled with how well all of the colors matched. I think every color in this painting is somewhere in the wallpaper. It couldn’t be more perfect! I plan to get this piece framed, but for now, I think he looks quite happy just as he is.

Additional Details

Another little change I made was to swap out the knobs on the closet doors. I found these flower knobs and they couldn’t be more perfect. They add such a sweet little detail.

I also wanted to mention here that the paint on the trim is the same as the rest of my house. It’s Sherwin-Williams Extra White (right out of the can) in a Satin finish. 

The existing chair in the room can be found HERE.

Future Plans

As I stated above, this room still has a long way to go in terms of decor. I’ve already purchased a new bed frame (this one here in white). I’ve had my eye on this for what seems like forever and can’t wait for it to arrive sometime in April.

Other things I’m looking to replace are:

  • bedside tables
  • dresser
  • bedding
  • chair
  • lamps

I think I’d also like to add a really small table/vanity under the bunny artwork. I think it’s always nice to have a desk space in a bedroom.

That’s a Wrap For Now

Well, I think that about sums up the little tour of my new bird wallpaper and a recap of where I stand on my guest bedroom update. Apologies again for taking so long to share the changes to this room.

Hopefully, I’ll make quicker progress with the next round of updates. I hope you enjoyed this little peek around my home.

  1. I just ordered new knobs for closet doors, fabulous idea. The wallpaper gorgeous reminds me of an English cottage bedroom. I would keep end tables, they don’t take away from the wallpaper.

  2. Wow! What a beautiful room. There is so much brightness and whimsy…such a perfect place for your guests. I love all your selections…especially those knobs. I’m currently trying to figure out where I could use them in my house! 😊

  3. This room is coming together quite nicely! I love the wallpaper and closet knobs especially. I got a kick out of the wallpaper inside the closet. I wallpapered the inside of my son’s closet when he was little because I had the feeling the doors would be open most of the time anyway so it might as well look good! Lol! I’m pretty sure you won’t have that same issue with your mom!

  4. It’s adorable, love everything, especially Mr. Bunny!
    I know your Mom will be so happy in this delightful inviting room. You have the VERY BEST IDEAS! I must add that I copy alot of them in my own home! Thanks for all the inspiration!

  5. Love the wallpaper! My home reflects the nature aspects too – hubby loves nature and I’m a gardener resulting in a lot of nature/flower pics in our home. And for the decorator you are, eagerly await to see the room’s finishing touches! Like the window blind too as it gives contrast and could almost be bird’s nest material! Bravo!

    1. Love the attention to detail. The handles on the closet door are perfect!! This room is perfect already, I can’t wait to see how it evolves.

  6. The room is very pretty and coming together quite nicely. Do you intend on installing outlet covers? I would be worried about not having any with my cats. I would even use some cheap ones until I found what I wanted. Thanks for sharing all what you are doing.

    1. Yes! Did you see where I mentioned that in the post above? I want to switch out the outlets first as they need replaced. The cats don’t currently have access to this room.

  7. The wallpaper is truly gorgeous. I would never have thought to do the closet! This is genius and totally completes the room. As always your attention to detail is what keeps me looking for your updates. Have a Happy St. Patrick’s. Day ☘️

  8. Hi Michael,
    I absolutely love this room. Your home is adorable,but this room is breathtaking.
    I used to wallpaper everywhere back in the “old days” (70s) but never would have thought to do the closet! So very cleaver, however I did wallpaper all the plug and switch plates to match. I’m sure your planning the same.
    Happy St Patty’s Day

    1. Thank you so much, Kim! And for whatever reason, I don’t love the look of wallpaper plug / switch plates, so I’m just leaving them as they are … once I get them hung! Ha.

  9. Ooooo I LOVE this paper!!!! Your momma is one lucky lady to enjoy staying in that beautiful space. Can’t wait to see how you will finishing off decorating it!

  10. Michael, you are so talented! I am absolutely in love with this room! It’s a perfect welcome for any guest! You ‘did good’! I know your Mom loves this space! Each of the details is just amazing.

  11. I love the wallpaper! It gives the room a lot of charm and personality. It looks like you have a nice dresser in the room already. Why are you planning to change it? I’m just wondering what your thought process is. Thanks!

    1. It’s works. It’s fine. I’m just not a fan of it here because it’s mid-century and that’s just not the look I’m after for this space / my home. It was a thrifted find years ago so it wasn’t overly expensive and I should be able to sell it.
