Spare Bedroom Before & After

HomeJessica RayomeComment

This room is one of my favorites, even though we don't actually have guests over a ton since most of our family lives in town. But between this giant bison print and the huge barn door to replace the bifold doors, I'm obsessed. We pass a bison farm (along with many other farms) on the way to our house, and somewhere along the way Aaron and I became obsessed :)

You can see in these before photos that the room was just pretty basic. I also never realized just how many homes had bifold doors in them. It was like an epidemic of the 90's. The new house has sevearl of them too, and I can't very well put a barn door on every one, but I'm going to have to figure something out!

Fun fact, these dressers are actually Aaron's grandparents from their childhood that I painted and changed out the knobs. In theory I would like to upgrade to something new, but I kind of like that these have a little bit of history to them!

That's the spare bedroom! I just have always really liked this space and found it to be relaxing and a great place for a nap. And a good place to send Aaron to when his snoring shakes the walls :) :) :)
