Guest Bedroom Redo Reveal

Well, this has turned out to be a huge project for such a small little room.  Finally all the sewing, painting and cleaning is done.  So here is the big reveal. - - - - -( I just added the tiny check pillow as a last minute finishing touch.)

As you walk in the door this is the first thing you see, a Hoosier Cabinet.  I told you I was using non-bedroom furniture and I definitely am.  I have had this piece for nearly 50 yrs.  It has been in many different homes, but this house has no place at all where it will fit, so I am making it work in the bedroom.


As I showed you in the last post, the other end table is a kitchen piece also.  A work table with fold down leaves, silverware drawer and two tin curved flour bins.  I know, kitchen pieces in the bedroom, but I am using what I have.


The comforter I found at Goodwill for $10 works great in the room.  Brown, beige and just a touch of red.  I am so glad I found the plaid for the dust ruffle.  I didn't want the red to be predominant, so by doing a pleated dust ruffle, I was able to put the red inside the pleat so just a little peaks out.  I like the combination of the paisley and the plaid.


The beige and white stripe drapes match the paint color perfectly and blend into the wall, so the space appears seamless as much as possible.


I have decorated my Hoosier with some of my Equestrian finds that I have been accumulating.  Since I am using the huge Hunt Scene painting instead of a headboard and as the focal point of the room, I wanted the Hoosier to continue the theme.





My toy riding Horse looks great on the top.


You have seen the hat, figurines and other items on the shelves.  They were previously in the familyroom bookcase.


The work surface of the Hoosier pulls out to be twice the size you see here.  I am using an old piece of leather that has a stenciled Texas Star on it, my Dalmation dog, a bowl and a tin can lamp.


Behind those two large doors you can see the flour sifter and the wood bean box.  They always thought of everything when they made these pieces.  There is also two pull out cutting boards, a big storage area underneath with shelf and door storage, plus the bottom of the three drawers is tin lined.

My little Dalmation doggie is so cute.  It's another of my GW finds that I think is a real treasure.


Isn't that the neatest little bowl.  Definitely fits my theme.


The end table on the other side of the bed holds my dog lamp that I borrowed from the familyroom, an antique crank phone, an antique alphabet plate and a crystal clock from GW.  I hung one of my antique Regulator clocks on the wall.


I love that phone, it weighs a ton, but it is so fun.


These old clocks are so fun and they put so much detail into them.  Even the pendulum is fancy.


I added one little thing since the first pictures.  I decided not to try and make shams, just leave the bedding simple and uncluttered.  However, I did have this one checked pillow that I thought looked good.


Super simple little beigy-goldy-cream check.


I think it dresses the bed just a touch.

Totally a departure from the rest of my house, but I think it will be a comfortable room for my guests., so that is what really matters.  It's come a long way from being storage for me and a ton of my son's things.  Plus, it's fun to see something totally different, don't you think?  Thank you guys for cheering me on through out this whole ordeal.  I promise to not show this room again for a while.  Just a couple of tutorials on the drapes and dust ruffle are coming.
 Cost breakdown:
Drapes and Rod $27
Comforter $10
Dust Ruffle $12
Everything else I had. so not too bad for $49.00

    1. Yes, sorry I didn't take a pic, it's in the corner across from the bed. Just a small wooden chair. I am in the process of repairing an antique lawyers bookcase for that back wall also, just don't have it done yet.

  10. It looks really great, Marty. I love that you have used kitchen pieces as accent pieces in the room. It really gives the room a lot of character. It all blends together beautifully- xo Diana

  11. Great job! I LOVE that you have a Texas star displayed! :-) It doesn't matter about the kitchen pieces being used...stepping outside the box is creative. You've done a lot of work in this room and it shows. The bedding is perfect.

  12. Marty the room turned out lovely and I love your furniture that you used. The Hoosier is such a pretty piece and it seems that guest could actually use it a
    desk of sorts if there was a chair to pull up to it. Using surprising furniture gives it a one of a kind look and it is all very nicely pulled together.

    The fabrics are so pretty too! What a great idea to manipulate the plaid pleats in a way to bring out the colors you wanted- I will have to remember that!

    Probably won't see me for a week or more so wishing you an early Happy Mother's Day friend!

    bee blessed

  44. Woohoo! Love your cute guest room. I really like how you've used the Hoosier cabinet in the space; it's almost like having a writing desk or secretary in the room, so it's perfect! I have an old sewing machine that folds into a table as my bedside table in my bedroom....so I'm with you on using what I've got! Love the little toy riding horse too; he's cute!

  48. Your guest room turned out great. The hunt scene goes perfectly with the bedding. I think the Hoosier looks fine in there. I had an old Hoosier once upon a time- the main shelf/tabletop slid out so it could have been used as a desk if I had only thought of it at the time.

  49. Oh, Marty, your guest room is so charming & inviting. Your guests may not want to leave....lol! What a wonderful bedspread you found at GW. Great job!

  50. Your guest room is lovely! I especially love the non traditional pieces beside the bed. Sometimes
    I think when you put things in the non-normal place it almost showcases them more!
    Love the colors, the accessories....would definitely love to stay there as a guest!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wow, Marty! What a beautiful reveal this is! You have done a fantastic job with the bed linens... and I really love how you pulled everything together with the Hunt scene picture as the main theme, especially with the gorgeous vignette in the cabinet... love all the elements in it....a beautiful beautiful job! And I admire your sewing skills... so professionally done. Thanks for such a beautiful inspiration. Happy Mother's Day to you!Hugs,Poppy

  59. Hi Marty,
    You did a fabulous job. I'm a big believer in thinking outside the box and using much loved furniture items for other uses. If you love it, try it and it will usually work. You proved the point with your lovely and inviting room. Good job well done.
