Hide CaptionShow CaptionNow this spare room is calm and orderly — perfect for housing those out of town guests.
Now this room looks like a bedroom. Warm, neutral paint colors soften the overall look, and the clutter has been replaced with a new dresser and daybed for about $600. The new vertical window treatment in a soft blue color plays off the browns in the wall paint and makes the window as well as the entire room feel much larger. One of the end tables from the old room is brought back in and repurposed, and various accent pieces add finishing touches.

Paint colors used:

guest bedroom: C2's Pilot (main tan color), and Buffalo (accent color) both in eggshell
refinished end tables: C2's Black Bean, semigloss
