Guest Room and bath reveal

Happy Monday everyone.  Thought I would share some pictures of my guest room and guest bathroom and the beginnings of our Master Bedroom and bathroom re do.

This was a before pic of the guest room when we looked at this town home.  Woo she had two twin babies and a toddler in this room!  They were busting at the seams.


After picture of new guest room.  The walls are painted in snow drift that is white with a touch of gray.  I hope to replace this carpet upstairs when Terry finds a job.  For now it is a good carpet just hard to keep clean.

Everything in this room I had from the old house.  The only new thing is that awesome architectural piece about my angel picture over the guest room bed.  I got that recently at the three french hens market I went to with a friend.

Just such an awesome piece and it frames my angel picture so beautifully.  That was such a great score to find.


My mom is coming in for a stay in a few weeks so I wanted to have some good reads for her by the bedside.  The one book is written by my friend Diana from Nana Diana Takes a Break blog.  If you have not read her first published book this is a great summer read.  I left it for my mom to enjoy at night before she goes to sleep.

I was able to use this old cabinet piece in the room and also my vintage window framed mirror from the old house.

I love that it reflects the light and my angel.


Now on to the Guest Bathroom.  

Before:

Yikes the dark red this bathroom was!!!!!!

Before


I used Behr Marque paint.  Guaranteed to cover in one coat over any color.  So with the dark red I decided to use this to see if that were true.  Yep one coat and it covered all the red nicely.   
This mirror is off my great grandmothers dresser.  I have had this pretty mirror forever and never had a place to use it.  It looks great in this new guest bathroom.




I hung one of my old posts I had.  This will be nice for my guest to hang their robe on and the old vintage frames I had work nicely to have hooks for towels.  The bench was from my old dining room set in the old house.  Worked perfectly in this bathroom.  It is a big guest bathroom.  Love the nice open space in this bathroom.  I will show you the shower curtains I am having done for both this bathroom and my master when they arrive.  I am excited to have some  new shower curtains created for both of these bathroom.  So more to follow on those.



Perfect for hanging a robe or towel for my guests.





Cooper loves to lay in this bathroom on hot days.  This bathroom floor feels nice to him.





Here is my Powder Room on the First Level.


This is the hall way right outside the powder room


This hall way also leads to the kitchen which I hope to show you soon.  Almost done in there.  Just tweaking!

This is the powder room on the first floor.  Painted in the snow drift color.  I brought that old cottage door mirror I had in my other bathroom to use in this powder room.  




Sometimes it is the little touches that just make you smile.  I just added an old piece of chippy wood behind this regular ole toilet paper holder and it just gave a chippy vintage vibe.  So simple.


I was able to hang this old arched church window I had hanging in my old master bath in the old house.  Love that the things I saved and brought with me can be used in the new house.  It was hard to figure out what to save and what to let go of before we moved with not having a new home yet.  So I am excited that almost all my favorite pieces I brought with are able to fit somewhere in this new home.







Sneak peek at the new Master Bedroom.  Still working on this room and my master bath.  I will have finished pictures soon.

Thanks for your visit today.  I have to say with being in the new place less than a month.  Terry and I have gotten so much done in a short time.  Just some tweaking on the upstairs and getting a few things done in the kitchen and we will be finished.  Well at least finished for now lol!  You know me and change.  Just with doing so much painting and change ups to every room in this new home I am ready for a break.  I want to enjoy the rest of the summer and our new little grand
baby due this Thursday.  So it will be nice to not have the new house to worry about and we can enjoy a summer break and the new addition to our family.


 Have a great new week.  Enjoy every minute.  I will have the kitchen and master bath and bedroom soon.  So excited for Charlotte Grace our new grand baby to arrive in just a few days.  Abby is so excited to be a big sister and we are beyond thrilled to have another grand baby to love.  While life has been a real roller coaster for us this past year with lots of disappointments and hardship we have many wonderful blessing too.  This new addition to the family being a beautiful blessing.  
Hugs,
Kris

  1. Love what you did with the TP holder in the bathroom! Genius! Also, that architectural piece and Angel are perfect above the bed. You both have done such a great job and I can't wait to see more!

  2. Wow again, Kris! I cannot believe what all you guys have accomplished. Like you, it's those little things that I love - that architectural salvage over the angel in the guest (!), the tp holder, even the cherub soap holder (is that a glass bowl epoxyed to a base of a candleholder or lamp base?), your bench and chippy arched windows. Really, it all looks so nice. Your mom should really feel like a pampered guest when she comes!

  3. Kris I can't believe how much work you two have done in such a short period of time. And the changes...WOW...what amazingly beautiful transformations! Love that piece over your angel pic and the gorgeous mirror and chandy in the guest bathroom. All of your paint colors...just perfect!
    (And your mom is going to love Diana's book...I read it last summer.)

  12. What can I say but, WOW love everything that you and Terry have accomplished. I can't believe the changes you have made and they look terrific. I bet it won't be long until the magazines will be wanting to do a photo shot at your new home.
    Thanks so much for taking us on this beautiful tour of your new home. Cooper looks so much at home - he is a sweet boy.

    Lots of hugs,

  13. Kris you and Terry must have exhausted and sore muscles but ecstatic joyful hearts. Your home looks beautiful and you both so deserve a beautiful nest. Kris I was looking at your exquisite cemetery angel art and I knew that I knew that lovely angel. So I searched my mind and remembered where John and I stood in the peaceful energy of her presence. It was in Savannah Georgia ... I googled and found a side profile of her I am going to email you. Even with just looking at her on the computer screen hanging in your guest room I felt protected and quiet. A truly beautiful new home Kris and of course I love all your new additions but mostly I find inspiration from your repurposing, recycling and giving a continued legacy to each amazing gathered piece. Am I awful to say this? You can tell me if you think I am... but I love your new nest more than the original Junk Chic Cottage No. 1. Enjoy your Moms visit and BTW Cooper laying on the cool bathroom floor looks precious.
    xoxo,
    Vera

  25. I bet you are having the time of your life, I know I sure would be! It's so much fun to style a new home, giving it a new look with many of your older pieces, yet it's all taking on a whole different feel in this home.
    Your bathroom is perfect, what a job painting it all and changing up a few things but well worth placing your stamp on it.
    I can wait for a complete home tour when you finally say to yourself it's all finished.

    See you and your white beauty soon.

    Ps it looks like cooper approves of all the changes as well, he is relaxed in the bathroom taking in all the beauty.

  26. I really don't know what to say....I really AM speechless....

    What you've done here Kris, honestly, you have worked so fast and have achieved SO MUCH BEAUTY. Your touch is professional and well done. That bathroom....I have to get some of that paint for my kitchen which is an orche color and I want to change it to white. Sounds like a good solution!

    This simplicity and elegance that is the result of carefully placed vintage items is the trick to feeling the true Shabby Chic look. I want to achieve this in one room of the older part of the house, but I still can't figure out what is missing. Maybe it's a new paint job that I need, but you have captured it. WELL DONE! And it's still only June, so enjoy the new arrival of your grand!!!! LOVE TO YOU!

  27. Good Morning Kris
    So so beautiful*** you have been working your magic in every room. Love it all. You and Terry must be working day and night to have done so much. You have brighten up the rooms and made them so soft and pretty. Love that toilet paper holder now with that piece of wood. That gorgeous piece over your angel hanging is the best, what an awesome find. That sneak peak of your bedroom!!! well that little bit is absolutely gorgeous. Cant wait to see the rest. I am so happy for you and your family on your new grand baby coming, you must be bursting with excitement, I sure would be. How is Cooper feeling? Enjoy this glorious day Kris. Thanks for sharing your beautiful rooms.

  29. You and Terry have done an amazing transformation and it all looks so beautiful. All of your mirrors and architectural pieces look so nice down to the chippy piece of wood behind the toilet paper roll. I will have to keep the Behr Marquis paint in mind since we just painted one child's room red (not my choice of course) and I know someday I will be painting over it.

  42. Dear Kris, everything is just divine! Living in your home has to be like heaven. I love the architectural piece above the angle picture. It looks like a halo. I'm crazy about your bedroom, so beautiful. It reminds me of my childhood bedroom. My sis and I always slept under a canopy. My mom was a great interior designer so our home was always decorated so beautifully. Keep them coming your home is such an inspiration. xx Jo

  43. I'm simply amazed at how much you have accomplished in such a short time. You both must be so excited (but exhausted)! Everything looks beautiful and should be in a magazine.

    You are so smart to do everything done fast though because you're right...once your new grand baby gets here life will be even busier :). .

  44. Everything looks absolutely lovely in your new home! How exciting for you to have a beautiful new home and a beautiful new granddaughter too. Your all white décor has inspired me and I just had my dining room painted white. I love it! All of my décor just pops against it. Congratulations this week for the new baby!

  45. Hello Kris, wow you and your husband have done a beautiful job with the new house! I love the all white and the guest room paint is so pretty! You should of been an interior decorator! Lol!

  50. you've come along way girl in such a short time! Everything looks so lovely and fresh. I think the carpeting is a nice compliment to the rest of your décor...but certainly can empathize with the hared to keep clean factor. Enjoy your mother's visit. I have been having my mother a couple days a week over the last couple of weeks. She only lives about 40 minutes away, but it is so difficult to get quality time together with the limitation in time due to my husbands issues. It does a girls heart and soul good to have her mother or daughter near.

  58. OMGOSH, Kris! You would never know it was the same house. You really do have the 'magic' gene in your blood. You would never know that was not a stand alone house to look at it. Fantastic job. AND thank you for the blurb about my book. You is da best!!!!! Thank you so very much---oh---I already said that--but I truly mean it.
    Love all your choices in the new place. That bathroom was almost gaudy before with those dark colors. Sure looks great now.
    Have a wonderful weekend with that new baby girl. xo Diana

  63. Love watching your new house come alive with your fantastic & beautiful decorating skills!!! My opinion on the grandma's baking cabinet....looks fabulous where you put it in the kitchen, but I think the open shelving would be more practical and give you the much needed counter space. But the kitchen is gorgeous and so is that new grand baby. Congratulations to you and Terry!!
