Today I wanted to share a little bit of the behind the scenes of this room's makeover.
As a reminder, this side of our Guest Bedroom started out looking like this. Boring... bland... blah...blah...blah.
So here begins the transformation.
If you've been following Home Coming for long, you know that while we've owned our house for seven years, we had it with renters for four of those years while we lived in different places across the country. And needless to say, our renters did not take care of our house.

Tomorrow I'll break down a couple of other projects that put together this home office, so be sure to check back!
