*This room was revealed in 2015 but refreshed in 2016. Check out the eclectic guest bedroom as it is today.
We Made It! Yay! This is the Guest Bedroom Reveal which took place over six weeks as part of the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling It Home. I’m calling this design, “modern and eclectic” but I’m not sure how to describe it best. Hippie? Boho? Clean? I’d say a little bit of all of those things.
If you need to catch up: Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4 and Week 5
Ready for picture overload?
Quite the difference with the before/after. I can’t believe how calming and relaxed the picture on the right is compared to the left. I kinda feel bad that we had multiple guests stay with us before. Ha.
The bed is really the showstopper! It’s a DIY. Can you believe it? We modeled it after the Drommen bed at CB2. I love that bed, but couldn’t shell out $900 so we made one and saved about $700.
The little side table is a thrifted find that I topped with a DIY penny tiled tabletop. The brushstroke art is a DIY and the brass light is a DIY.
I fell in love with that little pocket change dish. Cassie from Primitive and Proper posted it as a #thriftscorethursday and I politely begged her to sell it to me. She’s a sweetheart. =) The wood behind the plant is just part of a tree that my Dad (hi Dad!) cut for my sister’s wedding. I ended up with quite a few of them and knew that I could put them to good use.
The wall hanging used to hang in our living room on the gallery wall, but I stole it for the bedroom. I’m not sure if it’s here to stay, but I’m liking it right now.
I thought the room could use a mirror, but I only had a small one (the one above). I decided to pair it with the plant hangers and I think they work well together on the wall.
The little bench has moved around in the house as well, but I really like it where it is now. I think it’s found its forever home.
My Grandma gave that painting to me a few years ago. I really love it against the green wall.
The wooden hanging planter is a DIY that I shared last week. It might be my favorite thing (besides the bed) in the room.

Gilly @ Colour Saturated Life
Love this reveal so much….I think the way you painted the wall is just perfection! All the little touches make this room such a unique space.
Thanks Gilly! I’ve been loving those half painted walls for quite a bit now and it seemed to be perfect choice for a room that doesn’t get used that often.
The bed looks so inviting! Well done 🙂
Thanks so much!
so pretty, ashley! it’s such a soothing and modern space!
Thanks Cassie! I’m sure it will evolve a bit. I didn’t show one side of the room because it needs a dresser but I’m hoping to score one sometime.
ps. thanks so much for the little dish. It makes me smile!
Trisha D @black and white obsession
Oh my gosh Ashley, the room turned out fabulously! Cassie is just the sweetest, sending over that dish. Love that penny tile table!
I’m now going to obsessively wait for a tutorial on that absolutely stunning bed!
Thanks Trisha! She really is! You might have to wait until July for the tutorial…It’s going to be shown during a round for #knockoffknockoffs. =)
Trisha D. @Black and White Obsession
I’ll be anxiously awaiting 😀
Sabrina @ Pink Little Notebook
I love this colour palette! It so soothing and inviting! way to go!
Thanks Sabrina! My husband thought I was crazy to pick that army green but I thought it would work in the end. I’m so glad that I stepped outside of my comfort zone and just went for it.
It’s absolutely gorgeous Ashley! What a tranquil space! TOO many lovely details to name, but I’m totally crushing on that hanging planter! SO pretty! And I cannot wait to hear all about that bed! LOVE it all my friend!
Thanks Kristi! The bed…I thought it was going to be a heart-breaker. It seriously had me sweating bullets until Tuesday night. The things we do for projects. Lol.
What color green is this?
It’s conifer green!
Oh, it turned out fantastic! So creative with all your DIY projects. Can’t believe you made the bed?! Love the color too.
Thanks Dana! I LOVE the one at Cb2 but couldn’t justify the price at this point so where there’s a will there’s a way. =)
What a fabulous guest space – be warned they might never leave!
Ha. Lol. Thanks Kourtney!
WOW! That bed is amazing! The whole room looks fantastic! What a transformation. Love all the planters!
Thanks Charlotte! Aren’t you happy that we upgraded to a queen in that room?
LOL, We’re happy either way! But I think we’ll definitely enjoy that space next time we come!
the cape on the corner
loving this space, and that BED. wow.
Thanks so much!
Oh my gosh I love love love this whole makeover! You put everything together flawlessly.
Thanks Erica. I shopped our house and pulled from here and there. Things move around here all the time, but we have the same general style in all of our rooms so it tends to work out.

Gorgeous. Modern glam at it’s best. I love this transformation.
Modern Glam… love that! Thanks so much Marty!
Emily @ Table & Hearth
Dude, THAT BED!!!! Those walls! Heck, all of it. You absolutely knocked it out of the park. Can I please come stay??
Dude, thanks! =) Yes, please come and stay. We live in Missouri. =)
Wow, what a difference! The room looks so serene and that bed turned out GREAT!
Thanks Jessica! We are pretty happy with the drastic difference.
It is such a calm and relaxing space–it looks fantastic!
Thanks Lisa! We are hoping our guests find it calming (that way they want to come an stay with us more!).
Really nice, very vintage. I love the bedside cabinet:)
Thanks Anna! I so wish that there were matching cabinets but when you thrift you have to take what you can find.
So peaceful and serene…well done!!
Thanks so much Traci!
Erin @ the-organized-life
Great job on the guest bedroom. What a transformation! I’m in love with that bed! And I love the plant hanger you made. Doesn’t it feel so good to have a beautiful space?
Oh my gosh, yes! It was just a dumping ground and now, I definitely will move my dumping ground to a different room. lol.
Bre @ Average But Inspired
What a fabulous makeover! The green is so pretty and I love that you chose a non-neutral, neutral for the wall (if that makes any sense at all)! That wooden planter is awesome and I can’t believe you made the bed!! You rock!
Thanks Bre! Yes, that does make sense. =)
Very good job. I like the serenity of the space :-).
Thanks so much!

Love the mix, whatever you call it. The room looks a lot larger, too. How crazy is that? Great job. You have an adorable family, too. Happy Mothers Day.

Aimee, The Crazy Craft Lady
This room is absolutely perfect! I love the wall color, and the decision to extend color only part way up the wall. Looking forward to that DIY bed tutorial!! Have you ever had so many DIY tutorials photographed and waiting to be posted?!?! It’s kinda fun!
Thanks Aimee! I totally agree about the backlog of projects. Looking forward to sharing more. =)
Ashley!!! This space turned out amazing! I love the walls, the neutrals, the textures! That bed! Such a welcoming room – when can I come spend the night? 😉
Thanks Brynne! Seriously, come anytime… want a vacation in Missouri? =)
More info please on those fabulous drapes!!!! LOVING THEM!
Thanks! They are from West Elm.
I’ve just recently stumbled upon your blog and feel like I’ve found a kindred spirit! Love the style of this guest room! So many creative touches…you didn’t even mention the 1/2 painted wall! And your vignettes are so charming. I’d love to be a guest in this room. So calm and so home-y. Looking forward to more…
Thanks so much! I love meeting new friends!
Corinna - For My Love Of
Love, love, love the space! The first thought I had was “zen.” I think there’s a lot of underlying details that lean towards that zen/Asian aesthetic!
Thanks Girl! It’s a bit more “Zen” than my usual style, but I’m LOVING the change.
Sorry I’m so late. I really really love this and the photos of all the beautiful details are amazing. You outdid yourself and it is so you.
Thanks Julia! It’s a bit eclectic, but my style is totally leaning that way. It’s interesting to watch it evolve.
Great job! where did you find the wall planters?
Thanks Stacey. I picked them up at HomeGoods. They are “Max Studio” branded.
Love this makeover! Love the pictures! Saying hello from the found and forged link party!
Thanks Cathy! I just love that party!
IT turned out so pretty! I really love the pain color that you chose for your space.
Thanks! It’s Conifer Green by Behr Marquee.
WOW!!! I love this room… the colors, the paint technique, the bed, the accessories… everything!
Thanks so much! We are using it for the first time this weekend, so I hope our guests find it inviting. =)
The DIY Homegirl
Wow! What a big change! The room kinda has a Zen quality to it as well. Great job!
Thanks so much!
What a gorgeous room! I would love to know where the comforter cover came from.
Thanks so much! I got it from Schoolhouse Electric. =)
Any source for the duvet cover? I love it so so much!!
This room is so so lovely!! I love all Te DIYs!
It’s old but from Schoolhouse Electric.
