Basement Guest Room {progress} Reveal

I totally meant to do an update post on the guest room...weeks ago.  Then, I didn't get as much done as I had planned, & sort of forgot about it...

So, here's where we're at right now.  The pictures aren't great...but the room is very dark, and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to shoot it with the mix of natural light from the window & artificial light from the ceiling.  You'll just have to deal with it while I cringe over here.  Ha.

The whole thing began with some pallets that I snagged from my mom's work.  I had no clue where I was going with it, but I knew I wanted to build a headboard.  In one night.  This is what I came up with & these are the only two pictures I have. 

Ignore the garage door in the background...this was while we were in the process of stripping & sanding it...I'll post pictures of it before & after once it quits raining around here.  :)

Then, I whitewashed the yellow-y wood & mom & I hauled it downstairs & attached it to the bed frame.

Trimmed out the windows & hung bamboo blinds.

Created some wall art & temporarily hung it with washi tape.

And voila!  A semi-finished place for our guests to rest their heads!  When I get some free time to do some tweaking, I'll post pictures of the other side of the room (dresser, mirror, etc.).  I also need to get a new lamp for that side table...& get rid of that old Ikea just doesn't work in the space.

Not too bad for starting out like this a few days earlier...right?
