A Bohemian Farmhouse Guest Room Reveal

Good Morning Dear Friends!
Are we keeping it together among-st this holiday madness?
Between gift wrapping, decorating and holiday party's, I
'm about done and looking forward to January!
So a few weeks back I had decided I would makeover my guest bedroom. I have been slowly making way through the house and I am 89% done with the downstairs.... just a couple spots to paint. So I have headed upstairs where we have our guest room, jack and jill bathrooms, my paint studio/craft room and an upstairs living room with a kitchenette and work out room.... 
ya it's a lot of house and I can't wait to get it all done!

So here was the before.
Talk about dull and drab.

And this was actually better then the before...Before.
So as you know,
 the whole dang house which is nearly 4k sq ft 
was covered head to toe in this taupe color.

That. I . Despise.
So slowly but surely, I have been painting the whole house one room at a time and have finally made my little way up those sweet farmhouse stairs and 
I can finally see the finish line... 
while I still have a few miles to go...
 it's there... on the horizon.

So here is the after.
Talk about a difference.
The whole room is alive now:)
I absolutely love it!
I gave the room a fresh coat of Behr Silver Polish and this was the game changer.
Giving this room a bright coat of paint really made all the stained wood work pop and the natural light just pours into the whole room.
I made that little shelf and had my husband hang it for me,
 and it really gives the room a modern bohemian feel.
I used a lot of decor that I already had, so this whole make over coast maybe $200-300.
The bed I got from the thrift store. Can you believe it? I drug it home and chalk painted the inside panels with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I was originally going to paint all of it, but it looked so good two toned and the wood details stand out so beautifully.
I took out the ceiling fan and used a re-purposed chandelier that I got for free. 
I repainted it and it fits perfectly in the room.
It is by far my fave room in the house.
I got the bathrooms and the hall painted as well. I'm just waiting on some new light fixtures.
I also need to repaint the stair well but the walls and ceiling reach to about 18-20 ft so I'm going to have to figure out something to reach those...
I can't wait to start on the second living room.  I'm hoping to do that in April for the One room Challenge, although that's a huge room to get done is 6 weeks.... but I like a challenge...a real one;)

What do you think about the new look?
Thanks for stopping by!
