DIY Project Parade, Painting a Floor and Shaw Area Rug Winner!

Well, I did it! I completely transformed out guest room in one week! Guest bedroom reveal tomorrow as I finish up a couple of last minute details. 
I‘m sharing the details of the painted floor, new wall color and new baseboard and door trim over at the DIY Club today where I used my favorite Purdy paintbrush, Dutch Boy paints, Krylon, Deco Art and Cutting Edge Stencil to transform the room.

Room when we moved in: Walls were painted white and floor was covered with an area rug.
room emptied and baseboard trim gone

Now there is a painted floor and painted area rug…

Those white dingy walls to these tropical blue ones and new baseboard trim…

I also updated heating and a/c vents with a coat of spray paint.

Remember the mood board:
BIG improvement! I love that it actually looks like a real rug and the room has some color!
Come back tomorrow for the guest room reveal where most decorative items are thrift store finds. I’ll also share how $100 of Better Homes and Gardens products warmed up the room to welcome guests this fall and you’ll have a chance to win $100 in Better Homes and Gardens products too! 
BHG Live Better

Everything in the room makeover with the exception of the bed which we already owned, light fixture which was already installed, bedding and BHG items – is a thrifty store, estate sale or junk/antique store find! 

See the reveal tomorrow!
