DIY To-Do List

I have so much DIY I want to do and SO LITTLE TIME... I have GOT to tackle some projects soon.  Specifically painting the chest and book shelf for the guest bedroom.

I am having a yard sale tomorrow.. so I think once that is over I'm going to head over to Sherwin Williams and buy the paint I need.  Then sand and prime those babies!

Here's my to-do list.. I probably left something off, but I think I have PLENTY of projects in my future. 

(ps, I FINALLY found bedding for the guest bedroom that you are going to LOVE!  Hopefully I can buy it after my yard sale tomorrow!!)

do you have any upcoming DIY projects you are working on?? Lets hear about them!!

Guest Bedroom Inspiration

I am so excited about my guest bedroom redo.  I recently sold ALL of our guest bedroom furniture (Yes, I know, I'm a little crazy).  It was old (to me) and I was ready for something new.  So I have begun the process of converting our computer/junk room to a study/guest bedroom.  I cannot WAIT to get it finished!!!

I have already bought a computer desk and chair for one corner.  Here a picture of it: 
(we switched the sides though, so the computer/keyboard is actually on the left)

So yep... that is pretty much ALL I have done so far.  But I do have colors picked out and I'm ready to get to work.  Here is my color palete that I am using:

I LOVE the coral and blue together! SO PRETTY!!!!!

My friend over at Vintage Charm and Restoration found this beauty this weekend and I snagged it up from her!! She is going to paint the main part white, and I'm still deciding on a color for the drawers, either coral or blue.  I am going to be using it for a TV stand.  I cannot WAIT to see the finished product!!!

Next, the bed.  I am going to buy some bed rails and make my own headboard (with the help of my hubby of course!)  I still haven't found bedding that I want, it will probably be the last thing I buy.

I also have a chest and a bookshelf that we purchased at Target a while back.  My plan is to paint both of these (I have no idea what color yet). 

I am going to get wire baskets for the top shelf of this bookshelf to put my craft supplies in.  I love this idea from The House of Smiths.

Well, I think that is about it for my inspiration board for my guest bedroom!! I can't wait for you all to see the finished product!!!
