One Room Challenge {Week Seven}: Farmhouse Style Guest Bedroom Reveal


Well my friends, it’s beautiful day for a room reveal, don’t you think? Well, technically it’s nothing but clouds + snow around here (which isn’t ideal for photographing the space), but I don’t have much say in all that.

You may remember that just seven short weeks ago we signed on to take part in our sixth One Room Challenge, setting out to create the coziest farmhouse style guest bedroom, just in time for the holidays.

Now, making over one space in just six weeks can be overwhelming at the best of times, so imagine how crazy you’d have to be to take that on when the rest of your house already looks like this…

House During
 

That’s a long story that I probably shouldn’t get into now, but you can read more about it all here.

Needless to say, if we were going to be stupid ambitious enough to take on another space in our home with our entire main floor already torn apart, it was going to need to be a relatively simple one.

Enter our guest bedroom.

The sad little space we’d been making our guests sleep in for the past 3 years.

Which was really just a dumping ground for all of the things I promised Brady I would use again someday.

But then, I came across this gorgeous bedroom set from The Brick and my starry eyes were all it took to convince me to clean out that disaster of a bedroom. I knew there was no way that bed was going to fit in this itty-bitty room unless I made some space for it – so, I stopped lying to myself (and my husband) and purged every last bit of it. Well, mostly anyway.

Turns out, even with all that sacrifice and purging, there still wasn’t much room for a big old sleigh bed in there. Okay, technically there was, but I didn’t think my guests would appreciate having to crawl across a bed just to enter the room. Plus, I was having trouble figuring out how exactly I would decorate + photograph that. #bloggerproblems

But I wasn’t about to let all that stop me. With my heart set on that beautiful sleigh bed, I decided that if it wasn’t going to fit into our current guest room, I was just going to have to find a whole new space to set it up in instead.

And so, I decided to trade places with my office space – mostly because it’s a bigger room, but also because then our guests wouldn’t have to listen to Carson waking up at 5am right next door to them (which I’m sure everyone will appreciate). Plus, it was already painted with the prettiest stencilled tile wall! Obviously, my husband was thrilled at this opportunity to play musical rooms (I will say, he did look kind of busy with that giant hole in our main floor), but really, he could hardly argue with my logic (just my wonderful timing I suppose)!

Thankfully, it was actually a pretty quick switch to make.

And then the very next day, the folks from The Brick arrived with our new furniture and it was all worth it … I fell in love all over again.

It didn’t even matter that I’d struggled to unpack and put together all of this heavy, solid wood furniture all on my own while Brady was rushing to install the last of our windows before the snow came (because surely we didn’t have enough on our plates as it was).

I guess it can’t all be easy.

I mean really, I didn’t even have to slap on a lick of paint, change the window coverings or DIY much of anything, so a girl can’t complain about having to unpack and put together a few pieces of furniture. Especially when it’s as beautiful and perfect as this.

So, with the furniture built and the walls already painted (you can find that stencilled wall tutorial here), it was really just a matter of decorating (which is of course, always my favourite part).

I made up that beautiful sleigh bed with the most lovely Belgian linen bedding from Crane & Canopy.

I adore the way the crisp white linen pairs so perfectly with the rustic texture of the wood!

And with Winter rolling in, I just couldn’t resist layering in all sorts of cozy texture with a gorgeous quilt set and a bit of faux fur for good measure.

I also tucked a few extra blankets into the cabinet across from the bed, just in case that pile on the bed wasn’t enough.

I adore this lovely old cabinet and I was so happy we found a way to work it into the space!

On top of those rustic nightstands, I kept things really simple with an industrial inspired desk lamp from Wayfair.ca and a vase of my favourite lambs ear sprays.

Not only do those matte black lamps look gorgeous, but with a great reach and all sorts of adjustments to change positions, they’re pretty practical too (that hardly ever happens!).

With so much already going on with that stencilled wall, I definitely wanted to keep things simple with the artwork, so hung a couple of white, vintage windows above the bed.

And beside the bed, a pretty antique mirror that used to belong to Brady’s Grandma (which just so happened to be one of those “things I would find a place for someday” in our old guest room! Ha!).

And finally, this DIY scrap wood monogram that I’ve been missing since the day we tore our dining room apart (don’t forget to check out all that excitement here!).

I also worked in a few fun finds from one of my favourite farmhouse shops, Vintage Farmhouse Finds.

I am head-over-heels in love with this tobacco basket, which actually came as a set of 3 (check out the others in my bathroom here).

And what would a guest room be without a serving tray?! This galvanized tray looks right at home at the foot of our beautiful guest bed.

Especially with one of my favourite candles sitting on top (which has only been lit, and very carefully supervised I might add, for the sake of taking photos, so no need to send me all of your fire safety concerns).

Despite the chaos happening downstairs, I couldn’t be happier with how this farmhouse style guest room came together!
