Guest Room number 1

I have two guest rooms. The kids stay in them when they come. The first one I started with had stickers all over the walls from previous owners. There was no way to get them off without ripping the top layer of drywall. Even when we heated them. Those people need to learn about removable stickers.

These stickers were murder to remove

The new color theme of the room will be white walls with orange colors. In Feng shui it’s in the fame and reputation area of the house.

The bed is a full size bed. You will notice it’s pretty high. That’s because it was a loft bed that my grandson didn’t like so I cut it down. I kept it a bit high so I can store items under it.

This was my inspiration photo

I made shelves with 1×4’s. I planned out my measurements and had Lowes cut it all out for me.

On the bottom I mounted a cheap Walmart shelf. It was cheaper than buying the wood. I added a top so I could make it a nightstand and I put legs on it to snazz it up a bit. I love the new look. If you have questions or comments please hit me up below.

I put the shelves together then hung them on the wall. I had painted them blue but changed my mind on the color later. I put a 1×2 on the wall and nailed the shelf to it on the sides and top.
I caulked all the seams. All of them. Caulk is your best friend
On one side I left the top area larger…mainly cause I ran out of wood lol
This is an old headboard grandson wanted to use on the bed. It’s too large so it has to be cut down
These are the IKEA legs I put on the bottom of the bookshelves
I made this top to act like a nightstand top
I brought myself a handheld router. Didn’t know what I was doing but I tried it.
Almost done
I also put support 1x2s on the wall behind the bookshelf and nailed the shelf to it sides and top. Then caulked it all up. I did not use the cardboard back that came with it.

I cut down the headboard and covered it with a curtain I got on clearance at Kohls.

Let’s see before and after shots

No organization. Messed up walls
White walls and storage
Green looks dreary. More messed up walls.
Cleaned up.
Dreary bed on wall
I love the new layout
Turtle pen and little room for the tv
TV will be on this wall. I will update later

What do you think? Improvement or no?
