It has taken me a little while to get the bedrooms and the bathroom "photo ready." I have moved the furniture several times, rearranged the pictures several times, and have finally decided this is as good as it gets for now!
We'll start with the guest room. Unfortunately, I did a terrible job documenting our progress in this room. What you need to know about the room before we started working is that it had a dark, orangey-brown wood floor, walls and ceiling. Here is what it looked like when we started working on the house. We closed up a window on the side wall and made the window on the back wall larger.
Those beautiful closet doors came from my dad's garage, which is truly a treasure trove! Lucky for me, he and my mom held on to lots of cool things they have collected over the years. I LOVE the color of these doors and all of their chippy-ness. I lightly sanded them just to knock of the loose paint and clean them up a bit. I coated the doors, including the glass with a good coat of polyurethane to seal them up and enhance the rich color.
If you like what you see in the house, check out the store! It is full of beautifully currated items that speak to my southern style!
If you have been keeping up with what's happening at The Southern Mercantile, I would love to hear from you. Let me know what you think of the house and if you have a project of your own you are working on!
