Guest Bedroom Makeover Part1

Hello  friends, I am sharing an updated  future look for one of our guest bedrooms.  For years, I had a jungle theme going, which everyone loved.

My Granddaughter Michaela just bought a house, so we are giving her the bedroom set from the former jungle room.   A queen bed with two nightstands, 2 lamps plus 2 chairs. I had bought another bedding set I am passing on to Michaela.

We are also giving her some dishes, wine glasses and some decor items.

Remember when wallpaper borders were in?  Also the older style tvs were very boxy and heavy. My how times have changed.  I am in the process of removing the wallpaper border now.  It has been a slow process. 

Did you know wallpaper is back in style?  Watch most of the HGTV shows and you will see them adding wallpaper, usually one accent wall.
 We are going to paint the room a lighter color. It should lighten this room up.

This comforter set was in the other guest room.  When I made over that room to the bling room, I moved it into the jungle room. Below is the bling bedroom.
My husband added the Alexa Echo Dot to each room in addition to the light switches to control the lights.

 I ordered a new bedroom set and lamps. We are definitely going for a different look. Above is the bedroom set I ordered.  The headboard is 71" high. I loved the lamps, however they are discontinued, so I had to find something else. 

This bed is the very same bed my mom ordered for her new house.  Unfortunately she only got to enjoy it about 4 months at the most.  She passed away  this year.  Looking at this bed will remind me of my mom and our special times together.
Below is the new lamp I purchased since the above was discontinued.

I also ordered new bedding, since the jungle look no longer matched. This look is a romantic look.

Next is the curtains, and accessories.
