Before and After: Guest Bedroom Makeover

Ahhh Susan Circle's Guest Bedroom, the last outpost in our DIY rampage over the past 3 years. Truth be told, if we hadn't been faced with the prospect of selling our house it would still probably rest in the state you see below. Untouched by the current residents (us) and begging for a mercy makeover. 

The real offender was that wallpaper border just whimpering to be ripped down. Pair that with a washed out wall color and you have an easy recipe for a makeover!

I love painting so I took this one on all by myself. It only 2 days of baby-free time to get it done!


The paint we used was Sherwin Williams Watery. The same paint we used in our breezeway last fall. 

Ahhh now isn't that better? The update, along with some sheer curtains almost makes this room float on air!

Selling Our Home: On the Market

Hey guess what! We're selling our house. I don't think this comes as a surprise, with the decluttering and deck repair posts, but there you have it!

We've learned a lot in the short time that we really began the process. Let's be honest, we've been talking about selling for more than a year, but the bulk of the work started only a few months ago.

Soon I'll share some hopefully helpful topics for anyone in the process or thinking about selling:

  • More decluttering
  • Staging your house to SELL!
  • Real Estate Photography
  • Showings
  • Life as a Seller

But in the meantime, here are some pictures that made it into our listing that went up on August 1st. Believe me when I say that it takes a lot of work to make it look like no one lives in a house.
