Guest room reveal!

So I'm doing my first room reveal, although this room has been "done" (is your house ever done) for a while. I only took two before pictures on my phone of the boringness that was once there. You get the idea though, nothing on the walls, and no fun decor. Well I'm pleased to share my blue and yellow shabby chic room! I have been in love with the Chevron pattern forever, and finally found a room to incorporate it in. I am also doing some linking up with some of my favorite home decor and DIY blogs that I have been reading and getting inspiration from.  This is a first for me but I'm excited for you to get a little glimpse into our home. This is our guest room so I wanted it to be bright and inviting and I have displayed numerous pictures of our dear friends and family on my homemade wall piece. Let me know what you think. we've only had a few slumber parties so maybe I need some suggestions so more guests will stay : )



Wall art was a DIY project that I made (with the help of my handy husband)

 Our friends and family

Close up of canvas chevron painting

 My refinished night stand find

The lamp got a little yellow spray paint makeover (it was originally cream)

Fleur de lis and lantern spray painted to match decor

Still looking for a cute Shabby mirror here, but how fun is that dresser 

Hanging bird cages
