Before & After Spare Bedroom

Saturday, June 19, 2010

This project was completed in stages and our before pictures were taken after the painting was complete and the window coverings installed. The walls and ceiling were painted the same colour as in the master bedroom, Benjamin Moore HC-80 Bleeker Beige. The fabric for the drapes adds a punch of colour to the room and coordinates with the painted side tables. The closet opening was covered with fabric in a colour that blends in with the walls to minimize the effect of a wood finish door closing in the room. Fabrics were purchased from Mitchell Fabrics. The furniture was rearranged to create a better flow in the room and additional lamps were added for extra light and a fun punch of colour.

The bookcase was de-cluttered and reorganized using baskets. Unsightly computer equipment and power cords were hidden in the closet further reducing clutter and minimizing the home office feeling of the room. Bedding, art, lamps and baskets were purchased from HomeSense.
