Before + After | A Guest Room Makeover

You may be following local designer, Kristina Steinmetz of Ich Designer already, and know her from her amazing IKEA hacks that we've posted about here in the past. And just this past week she revealed her most recent project, a beautiful guest room makeover.  So we were thrilled when she agreed to share a few images here.

The original room got a new floor and coat of paint, but here is how it looked when Kristina first went to the Open House before they bought:

They planned to do a feature wall in this room, which also became an homage to the view (visit her blog post to see).  The beautiful wallpaper is called Bellewood in black-white from Rebel Walls.

Perhaps the most noticeable, is the upgrade to the window replacing it with a cut-down version. Here's the before.

And the after:

The bi-fold cabinet doors which Kristina mentions, "are a bit old-fashioned", but with a new coat of paint and new hardware from Hamilton Bowes, they saved the money for new ones. The paint used for both the bed frame and cabinet doors are "Black" from Behr Marquee.

The transformation is stunning, and what a difference a few touches can make.  To see more from this makeover and visit Kristina's beautiful blog, Ich Designer, click here. You can also find Kristina on Instagram here.
