Guest Room Reveal

Whew!  I'm finally finished with the Guest Room in our Basement! 
 What a relief!  
I have been working very hard this weekend 
to complete the whole room. 
 Of course LIFE got in the way 
with an Impromptu 16th Birthday Party
 for Miss Beaux
 (I want a party, I don't want a party, Umm, by the way Mom I'm having a little get together...) 
more on that later. 
 OK, wait no longer, 
Let's go back and see the BEFORE.
Big Difference?
I completed so many projects in this room I lost count.  
Painting the walls, Painting the Dresser, Sewing the Drapes, Sewing pillows, Recovering the Bench, Recovering the Chair, Putting the Hinges on the Door, Chandelier Redo, Hanging pictures.... it goes on and on.
I will provide more information on all of these later.  
I'm exhausted, so let's just look at lots of pictures and get this posted.  

I promise this week to go into all of the details!  Thank you for coming by to look at the New and Improved Guest Room.  I am taking reservations so reserve your date (haha) but just to let you know, the Guest Bathroom is not yet finished!

Until next time,
Beaux R'eves
