Guest room makeover

For the first time in quite a while, we're finally roommate free. We've seen Paul, Edgar, Parker, Blair and Camille all come and go in the past year+ and while we've loved having them, we're loving being on our own, too.

Now that it's empty, that room finally got a much needed makeover!

Here's the before, bare windows, dingy trim and pale yellow walls.

In progress:

And now:

We went with a grey paint (It's Behr, but I can't remember the color name! We're in trouble if we ever need to match it...)
Hans added crown moulding and 4.5" baseboards and we painted the doors and trim Glidden's White on White. While I was away in SF, Hans also added the 2" faux wood blinds from Home Depot. He's such a good boy. The curtains and bedding we just happened to have left over from other things, both from Ikea.

We're really happy with how the room is coming along. I'd like to add some pillows to the bed, find some good night stands, and figure out what to do for a headboard. Oh, and that Ikea bookcase is getting a good coat of white paint one of these days.
