There was no reason to take before shots of the guestroom, it was just really dirty, with the same fabulous wall to wall gold rug on the floor. (OK, actually, I forgot to take a picture of this room too.) I chose a soft blue for the walls that picked up the color of the new area rug, and found some wonderful barkcloth on ebay for the boxspring cover and little bench. The bed was my downfall into the morally grey area of ebay sniping programs. I was so in love with it, and so afraid someone would steal it out from under me at the last minute, that I invested in one. Now you know one of my dirty little ebay secrets.
