Guest Room: mini-makeover

We've lived in our house for 10 years now.  It's a ranch, country-with-a-modern-twist, style home with exposed brick in the family room and living room, a quaint galley kitchen and the most beautiful backyard over-looking a running creek.  The master bedroom was redone by my Grandma (Designs by Belinda) a few years ago.  My room was redone by me my sophomore year in high school (and edited ever since...I can't stop!) and my brother's room was repainted by my dad a few years ago as well.  So the guest room is the last one on the list!  We've had the bedding for a while now, but I've always wanted to paint the wall the headboard is on, just to spice it up!  My Grandma said she's laid in bed at night in the guest room, just dreaming about how great a coral color would look on the walls.  Well Grandma, you're dream has come true (:

I'm a sucker for a good before and after, so here we go!

Okay.  I realize the wreath is ugly.  That's why it ain't comin back!


Is taping not just the absolute worst part about painting?!


Opposite side of the room.  The valence my Grandma made matches perfectly with the coral color. The vertical canvas on the wall is a painting I did with the wall color and accent colors to spice up this side of the room.

Here's the artwork we decided to go with!

We're just lovin' it.  What do you think?  Are you working on any mini renovations??

My mom and I looked at each other and asked, "Why didn't we do this sooner?"  All I can say is...finally

I'm sharing this with Thrifty Decor Chick.

Love and Coral,


  1. You're Grandma was right. It is lovely. The color makes it look so cheerful and happy.
