Do you remember how, last summer, we created a flex guest bedroom/sewing studio/hangout space from scratch in just under a month and the before-and-after transformation was included in Apartment Therapy? Between what I wrote in my original post – I felt something was missing, with one wall in particular – and the comments on that post and on Apartment Therapy, I knew this room was going to get a minor update. And finally, after months of thinking about how and making a small purchase here and there, I gave the guest bedroom a little update just in time for spring.

Guest room as flex studio.
We’re closing in on two years since we first bought the house (has anyone ever noticed how quickly years go by?!) and I remember thinking when we bought the house in December and moved into it January 1 that I truly believed we could redo our kitchen for less than $20,000 and by the end of that year. I remember first seeing the kitchen and being horrified and thinking that that project had to be among the first that we do. Oh, how naive we were, we quickly humbled first-time homebuyers! I mean, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
Thanks, Apartment Therapy, one of my favorite and one of the best design and home sites out there, for featuring our new guest bedroom on your site. To check out the Before & After on Apartment Therapy, click here.
From blank slate to flex guest room/studio in a month.
