A Lovely Gray Guest Room Part 2

If you missed part one of our Guest Room makeover click here
After painting the room a lovely shade of Wood Smoke gray, the next thing I wanted to add was a window treatment. See… Nothing but a white shade. 
The shade is in pretty good shape so other than cleaning it up, I left it as was. 
I thought about sewing my own sheer curtains, since the shade blocked most of the light into the room and provided enough privacy for our guests…  but lucked out in finding some white sheers with grommet tops, (like I had wanted anyway) at Wal-Mart for about $4 each. 
Sometimes store bought is just the better way to go. *Gasp*. haha

But, I was having trouble finding a curtain rod that I liked. I might have mentioned before that for shopping choices here we have Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and a few local owned stores. 

I finally found one at Wal-Mart that I liked the shape of, but not the color. 
(I have looked and looked to find you a link to the one I bought online… but just can’t find it… Sorry)

Enter Krylon white spray paint!

I just took all of the pieces of the curtain rod, laid them out outside on top of some foam I had and sprayed away. Let them dry, then turn them over and spray some more. 
Once they were fully covered and dried there were some runs in the paint. 
I’ll be honest. I should’ve done lighter and more coats, with more drying time in between.
I just get impatient. Mmkay. 
So I took a small sanding foam block and hand sanded down the drips and the edges to make everything look a little more worn and rustic. More my style anyway. πŸ˜‰
Then… because the hubs wasn’t home, I took his drill and hung that sucker up! 
It took me FOREVER. Can we just say hubs is probably getting new drill bits for Christmas!!!
You’re jealous of my little pink tool set, aren’t you! πŸ˜‰

Then I hung up my pretty white, store bought sheers…
And viola!! White window treatment against my lovely gray walls!
Besides needing ironed or something… I think they look nice! πŸ™‚ What do you think?

And since you can clearly see it in these pictures, check out the WHITE down alternative comforter I scored at JCPenney on SALE! Used another gift card from our wedding and only paid about $20 for that lovely!!!
Originally priced at a WHOLE lot more than twenty bucks!! πŸ™‚
