My Blue Guest Room

Hello, Bloggy friends. Today I'm showing my before and after of my blue guest bedroom. I'm joining Susan at BNOP and Sally over at Smiling Sally for Metamorphosis Monday and Blue Monday. Zip on other there for more great pics!






Sorry for the grainy MLS picture. This is the before room. It was painted an "electric" blue color and had white, painted squares on the wall. Ugh!



I painted the room a light blue color, and it brighten it up so much.




I added "Sophia" blue and white drapes to the window, and added shears.





I added blue accessories, and a white bed spread. I love blue and white together.







I also got a matching rug also from Laura Ashley.






And since it's, Blue Monday, I'm show the "blue" lady that hangs on one of the walls. She came from an antique store. I think she's so pretty.







Thanks for joining me today. I love having you!

Such a nice and peaceful room. I love the paint color. I bet it was hard covering up the old walls and funky paint. You must have had a great painter. (smiles big). signed "Ole Paint Pal"

Blue and white always has appealed to me. Your re-do is beautiful!

Blue and white is a beautiful combination, and that soft blue on the walls would be so soothing and restful that your guest may not want to leave! I really like your Blue Lady, too. Happy Blue Monday, D.

You did a super job on your room. I like the old bed in the room as well. It is amazing what a little paint will do.

It is a lovely room. I'm sure your guests don't want to leave. The walls are a gorgeous shade of blue and the white spread pops against their color. Have a great Blue Monday.
