Happy Friday Friends!!

Do you all have anything fun & exciting planned for this weekend? As of right now, it looks like we’ll be spending most of our weekend at home! Not much on our agenda, so hopefully I can finish up a few projects I’ve been working on lately and maybe even share them here on the blog next week! Fingers crossed!! 🙂

For this week’s Happily Ever Before & After post, I am featuring a simple, but beautiful guest bedroom makeover courtesy of Christa at Brown Sugar Toast. 

Christa is a loving wife & mommy of two. She has a passion for Jesus, cooking up yummy recipes for her little family, and decorating her home.  She states in her “About Me” Page that the main goal she has in blogging is that she wants to encourage others to live a creative & joyful life in Christ. Isn’t that a wonderful goal to have?! I just love that!

Christa had a guest bedroom that was just begging for some attention. With a half bath attached to this room, Christa knew it would make a perfect space for visiting guests. She wanted to make it a warm & inviting place for their visitors, but also give the space a little personality. You’ll see in just a minute, that she totally accomplished that goal!

Let’s take a look at the room “Before”….

Pretty much a blank slate! 

Like most of us, Christa turned to Pinterest & other sources on the web for paint & color inspiration for the room.  After finding a few inspiring photos, she figured out the direction she wanted to go with this space. Wanna see it?!

Let’s take a look at the “After” photo….


I love the dark blue walls with the pops of yellow in the room. The yellow is such a great contrasting color…don’t ya think?!

I also love the decision to go with white bedding for the room! The bedding & the white furniture really help to balance out the dark walls. I think its important to bring in lighter & brighter pieces when going with a bold & dark wall color like she did.

Christa made almost all of the accessories for this room….the throw pillows, the curtains, & wall art. Be sure to head on over to her blog to learn more about those projects & to see more inspiring photos of her new room!! You won’t be disappointed! CLICK HERE
