Twin Guest Bedroom: The Before

Interiors

As I mentioned last week, there are lots of “befores” happening around here. I previously shared “before” images of my basement and queen guest bedroom. Today, I’d like to introduce you to my twin guest bedroom.

Twin Guest Bedroom: The Before

This is one of two guest bedrooms in my house. This room measures 15 x 12. Since I moved in, which was roughly three years ago, I haven’t done much to either of my guest bedroom spaces other than add in some random furniture and accessories. They have been on my to-do list for years and I figured it was finally time to take some action.

Since this room is getting painted this week, I thought I better snap and share some before photos. (To be honest, though, I actually took these photos last year. I was planning on doing this room back then, but as you can see that didn’t happen. Ah, life!)

Are you curious about my plan for this room? I want to start off with a clean slate and some color, so everything is getting a fresh coat of paint. The walls are getting a color change and the trim is getting a fresh coat of white in a new sheen. The closet is getting a coat of paint too.

Once that is done, I’ll be free to rearrange and decorate. I’m working on a design plan right now and I’ll be sure to share that with you once it’s complete. If you want a little peek at some of my ideas, I have a Pinterest board for my entire house HERE. Feel free to have a look around. If you want to see this room specifically, you can find that organized into this section HERE.

I plan to keep the twin beds in this room. In fact, I found these bed frames specifically for this space. They were a FB Marketplace find from years ago when I first bought the house. I’m hoping to leave them as they are, but I may need to paint them as I’m not sure how the dark wood is going to look with my styling. Time will tell.

The goal for this room is to have it be fun and playful. I’ve been craving bold, smile-inducing tones lately, so this room will have punches of lively and joyful color.

You may have seen on Instagram (@inspiredbycharm) that in recent months I set up a little art studio in this room. in the prepping of this room for painting, I cleared everything out and gave my mini studio a temporary home in my office. I will just keep it there until its new and permanent basement studio home is complete. Phew! Lots of moving parts, but I am chugging along. One step at a time.

And I think that’s it for now.

I know that these before-style posts aren’t all that exciting in and of themselves; however, what they represent is an exhilarating adventure and exciting change. We have to start somewhere, right?

Here’s to another fun makeover. Thanks for joining me!

    Please don’t paint the beds. They are so beautiful as they are. They will anchor all of your other colourful accents.

      We’ll see. I’m not loving how they look with the room painted. It will be the last thing I do, so I will TRY to make them work.

    The natural beauty of wood cannot be overstated. It is natural and organic. These fine old wood furniture are prized pieces that need to be preserved. Revitalize, but don’t paint!!!

    Love these bed frames and hope you don’t have to paint them, but I know whatever you decide to do it will look great. Can’t wait to see the finished product.

    Looking forward to your after photos. Those beds are beautiful, but I know if you paint them they will still be beautiful in the room. I love how clean, simple and pretty your rooms are even before you remodel them.

    The beds are beautiful! Please don’t paint them, they need to stand out as they are.

    Michael, I love the energy you give out when you are making over a room. I can’t wait to see your colors and the details of the guest rooms, especially the new lighting. Why NOT paint the bed frames?! You will know what to do as it all comes together. Thank you always for your wonderful posts. Take care.
