Before & After: Andi’s Painted Guest Room

by Grace Bonney

As color month comes to a close, I’ve been trying to find some great before & afters that feature paint as their primary makeover material. This cute guest room makeover comes from Andi Teague of Quiet Home Paints, so she knows a thing or two about using organic paints to transform spaces. Andi’s attic guest room had been relatively untouched for a long time, and the slanted ceilings meant that traditional headboards wouldn’t fit. So Andi decided to paint them using bold blue chalkboard paint. This would work well for any guest, but I think this is such a fun idea for kids. It would be so fun for them to be able to write their names or even little poems or song lyrics. Thanks so much to Andi for sharing this with us! xo, grace
