Coastal Guest Bedroom Reveal

Sharing is caring!

Today I’m excited to share the results of my parent’s coastal guest bedroom makeover!

As I mentioned on Instagram, this bedroom was previously my grandmother’s who passed away last year. The room was in desperate need of updates and was one of the last rooms in the house to be done. This side of the house didn’t get any direct sunlight, so the overall goal was to brighten the space while updating the floors, baseboards, and paint.

This is now their second guest bedroom. You can see the first guest room makeover in this post.


This room is approximately 10’x12′. The main goals were to refinish the concrete floors (you can see they were very worn), replace the baseboards to match the rest of the house, and refresh the paint on the walls and ceiling.

The before picture isn’t the best, so you may not be able to tell, but the ceiling was painted a taupe color. While pretty, we decided to paint it white to lighten things up.

New Paint Colors:

SW Pure White (ceiling)

SW Moonmist (walls)

Silver Gray (floor)

I can go into the process of refinishing interior concrete floors in another post, but here is the completely refreshed space.


Removing the large built-in shelving under the TV and lightening the floor color made such a huge impact in this room!

A cozy reading nook was created with a FREE Facebook marketplace chair that I stripped down and reupholstered. We added a swing arm pharmacy floor lamp, small drink table and a coastal wall art along with a couple of my grandmother’s old pieces.

I gave the existing twin bed an update with a Pottery Barn inspired cane headboard. The original, while incredibly beautiful, was out of budget. I was able to create one for under $100.

We found a budget friendly nightstand that paired perfectly with the headboard. New baseboard trim was installed and painted SW Pure White in semigloss.

I partnered with Brooklinen to add a lightweight alternative down comforter in a linen color zipper duvet cover and pulled the coastal blue in with the prettiest bolster pillow. Living in Florida, we don’t typically need anything heavier, especially in the summer months.
