before and after: guest bedroom

d*s reader, and fellow blogger, jessica jones sent in this fun before and after project. she redid her guest bedroom by adding freehanded wall art (she did both the tree and the art on the small wall canvases) and ikea fabric to create custom pillows. such a fun way to add color and pattern to your room without spending a lot of money. great work, jessica!
