Hey guys! Sorry for the extended blogging break – the weather in Michigan has been insanely beautiful, and I keep waiting for a rainy day so I can get my kids out of the lake long enough to jot something down here. We are finally getting a sprinkling of rain and there is a serious pillow fort happening in the playroom; so, I’m quick popping in to continue my parent’s new beach condo renovation tour. The guest room/guest bath is up today, or as my kids call it, their room :) They seem to be confused as they think they will also be spending the winter down in Florida. Youngest retirees ever!
Here is the before –
And After –
First up, we got rid of the ceiling fan and drapes which made such a difference! Then a fresh coat of paint.
The guest room had two cute twin beds in it already so we just swapped out the bedding. The fresh aqua and green bedding we found at the Company Store and it had the perfect amount of color and fun for a guest room. Don’t mind the fact that we are missing a pillow sham in all the photos my mom left it in Michigan on accident when we flew down. So just imagine the beds are twinning.
Also, we ran out of time to grab duvets to put in the duvet covers, but you get the idea.
My mom found this lamp at the consignment shop she sold all the old furniture at and the whole room just feels so bright and cheerful now.
The art on the wall is courtesy of my mom and her iPhone; she took these shots of the bridge down the road and we used the waterlogue app to make them into works of art (check out my post here for more info on how to make your own!). Here’s a quick tip – instead of having the photos custom framed, we hit up HomeGoods and found these frames we liked but didn’t love the prints inside. I think each frame was $25?
I removed the staples from the back and the print, popped our own cute art in and duct taped the whole thing back together – duct tape for the win as always! Custom framing them would have been a lot pricier, plus we didn’t have time for that in our 4 day Florida trip.
Ok, onto this little bathroom! This was a weird one as they had this off center tiny vanity in here with a huge medicine cabinet. We bought a pretty round mirror, but had a nasty surprise when we went to take the medicine cabinet off the wall and found there was an enormous hole that wouldn’t be covered up by the new mirror.
Here’s the Before (again with the palm tree love)
Back to the store we went and found a new one, but my mom and I could not get over the off center vanity you all know my OCD symmetry issue, I guess we know where I inherited it from. So we made the decision to pick up a new bigger vanity, which seems odd in a small bathroom, but it made all the difference. We found the right size on clearance at Home Depot for around $120 and I painted it the same peacock color that we used on the living room coffee table.
Love how fun the pop of color is in here now, sorry for the bad photos this was so tight to try to shoot! We swapped out the bamboo/palm tree shower curtain for this cute beige ticking one. You can’t really see the ticking in my photo but it is cute in person and works with the beige tile.
Ok, I hear scary crashing from up in the playroom, so I’m going back into summer mom mode, but I hope to check back in next week again and finish up the tour with the dining room and full condo shots. Hope you all are having a fantastic summer!
