Have I chatted with you about the guest bedroom before?
Why am I asking? I know the answer to this. Its no.
And why have you never heard of this guest bedroom before or seen photos of it?
Because its ugly.
Let’s be honest. What room is usually last on the list when it comes to decorating?
The guest bedroom.
Those poor guests. A.K.A my amazing in-laws.
Bless them. They deserve better.
And they will get it. It’s all starting with these navy and gold chest makeovers.

Sometimes, all you need to make something pop is the simple combination of two colors.
No frills. No intricate details. Just the simple combination.
And for me, that simple combination in this case was navy and gold.
Notice, I said makeovers in the title. Yep, there are two of these. A night stand and a chest of drawers. I think the night stand probably qualifies as a chest because it certainly doesn’t seem like a “stand.”
Both of these are pretty solid, but had some issues.
I think at some point, they may have been in some water. See the bottom of the big chest above?
And the top needed some love as well.
So, before any paint went on these, I sanded them well. And picked up all the sanding dust with a tack cloth.
And then I pulled out my beloved, my coveted, my just-go-ahead-and-bury-me-with-it, HomeRight Finish Max paint sprayer.
Heaven help. Why did I just show you that picture?
That would be one of those days when the circus went to preschool and I tend to go a little loco.
You don’t get to judge.
After a coat of primer, I painted the chests the same navy color I used on the $10 dresser turned buffet.
This is a really deep navy, so it took a few light coats to get the color uniform. The finish was still impeccable.
Wow, I don’t know that I’ve used that word before on the blog. Yay, Jenna for using big words!
But, that’s the beauty of the Finish Max, it has a fine finish that looks completely professional.
I was not parting with the hardware that these chests came with – I loved their vintage vibe. They got a coat of gold spray paint.
There was this inlay on the top of each chest. To highlight it, I went over it with a gold Sharpie paint pen.

So, where is this guest bedroom headed?
My friends, that is a fabulous question.
Here’s what I know:
The Jonathan Adler inspired chair is staying.
The wall color is going.
Somewhere in all of it, there needs to be an office space.
And these chest makeovers were a fabulous start.
That’s about it.
Stayed tuned. It should be fun.
