before & after: elizabeth’s bedroom + jane’s speakers

this next before & after has one of my favorite collection themes ever- vintage globes. d*s reader liz of the lovely mabel’s house blog sent over this gorgeous makeover she did on her guest bedroom. i love the new clean, simple color palette and the mix of vintage accessories. the bold bit of pattern on the bed’s duvet and pillows is just perfect. great work, liz!

next up is a project that’s near and dear to my heart, as the wife of a speaker-addict. jane covered her living room’s speakers with a really sweet pattern and turned them from generic looking speakers to a dual purpose speaker/sidetable. thanks for sharing, jane! click here for more info on jane’s makeover…

    Both rooms are cute, I think it makes it a little chaotic in such a small space with open shelving in the after pic. Too much clutter for me! But love the color schemes of before AND after!

    As for the speaker…. if they’re just lying around and u need a table, good idea. If you plan on using them, DON’T make them a table.. learned the hard way and speaker got fried… bass spilled someone’s cup… lol

    I’m also chiming in with my vote for the before bedroom picture.
