Cathey’s Guest Room — Budget Wise Home

Cathey’s Guest Room

I got a fun surprise in my inbox a few days ago.

Remember this design board I recently showed you.


Well Cathey finished her guest room and sent me the pics.

Here is what it looked like before.

And after!

I gave her a bunch of DIY projects to help stay within her budget.  She made the headboard, sewed the pillows, and painted the nightstands.  The nightstands are one of my all time favorite DIY projects ever.  There are lots of RAST dresser makeovers, but this one tops my list.  So cheap and just plain fabulous.

Great job Cathey!

    WOW–this looks amazing. I love seeing before & after photos!

  2. I love those striped curtains and that chevron pattern on the pillows. I think every guest room deserves to have a little love in it! Awesome job!

    I love the colors of the room. Did you make the curtains, I mean paint the striped on or were you able to find the fabric somewhere? I am making a twin duvet for my daughter and the striped fabric is just what I have been looking for.
