So a little background before we dive into pictures.
So a couple weekends ago Matthew and I headed out to Lowe's, me with my little predetermined paint chip in hand - the one I had decided on mooooonths ago, mind you. And when we got there, Matthew questioned me. He said my paint choice looked too dark and too gray. He asked if I was SURE I wanted that one.
So off to Lowe's I went (at 7 PM), and what did I do? I bought my original paint choice. Which was perfect, and everything I knew it would be when I chose it to begin with.

Now that you've gained a little perspective, I will reveal the before and after photos....
(And by the way, Matthew DID help me paint the second go-round. And we knocked out in TWO HOURS what I wasn't even able to complete in SIX)
Guestroom Before...(not terrible, not GREAT)

|Fresh hydrangeas and old antique books on the nightstand (they are even ocean-themed!)|
|I got this idea from a Pottery Barn magazine (of course)|
Some of the frames still need pictures though! ;)
I got these baskets at a home decor store and filled them with tattered old books from an antique store...
