One Room Challenge- Guest Bedroom Makeover: Week 3

Hello friends!  Welcome back to week three of my One Room Challenge- guest bedroom makeover!  

Last week I shared the new dresser that was delivered. This week, check out the beautiful new rug.  I had a tough time figuring out which rug to choose for this room.  Rugs are expensive, but I wanted to be sure to select a rug that was the correct size for this space.  Smaller rug = my price range.  But the last thing I wanted to do was purchase a rug that was too small for the space.  A natural fiber rug was an affordable choice for me.  I purchased a 9x12 (<-link to purchase).  It's soft on bare feet and easy to keep clean.  It makes the space feel connected.  I couldn't be happier with my purchase!
Also new pillow covers arrived from Etsy.  The African mud cloth covers are my favorite.
I was really hoping to add this John Robshaw- Lanka Lapis fabric to the mix, but I think the pattern might be too much.  Womp womp!  I do love the design.  Hopefully I can make it work in another room in my house.

As much as I would love to replace the ceiling fan for a nice pendant, I'm not!  We use the fan to keep cool in the summer.  It's absolutely necessary when the Georgia heat becomes excessively hot and humid.  Instead I swapped out the globes for an updated look.

With week 4 fast approaching, I need to speed it up.  I still have some painting left to do.  I plan to transform the headboard with paint...

and finish painting the closet doors.  Wish me luck!

  1. Love the rug you chose, and yes, a great price. And just updating the globes made a big difference with the look of ceiling fan. Great job Brandi.

  2. Looks so great! There is nothing a designer loves more than seeing stacks of gorgeous fabrics next to each other-I love all of those Etsy pillow covers you have. It is going to be beautiful :) Kristin @ Postbox Designs

  3. Oh Brandi, your space is going to be so awesome.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    (And I soooo agree about ceiling fans. I would never EVER get rid of any of ours, no way.) Hugs.

  4. I'm really loving your guestroom makeover, Brandi! Love the rug and pillow covers! Can't wait for next week's installment!

  5. This has been fun watching the transformation! It's inspiring, but these old bones of mine just won't let me hop in there. I'm totally digging your new rug. I'm looking for something interesting for our entryway and in the master bathroom, and I really like the texture in your choice. I'm looking forward to the big reveal!!!

  6. Those pillow covers are fabulous Brandi. I love the colors and patterns you chose. Can't wait to see it all pulled together!

  7. Brandi, I can't wait to see how this turns out!
