Lettered Cottage- Guest Bedroom, revisited

I get a lot of questions about the wood wall in our Guest Bedroom, so I thought I'd re-post this little video Kevin and I filmed last year while uncovering our "buried treasure"...



Of course the room looks different now...





...you didn't really think I could leave well enough alone, did you? :-)

Layla,
When I click on the video, it says "private video, etc". Is there a reason i can't view the video? Do I need to be logged in somewhere?

momentum said...

It won't let me watch...says it's a private video. Is there something I need to do? Your help is appreciated.

I couldn't watch your video. I got a message saying that it was a private video and I would have to accept your friend invitation to view it. But I love the photos. I've loved your guest bedroom since you posted the first photos after the renovation.

You and your hubby look like such good friends! Looks like fun! Beautiful room.

Nancy said...

I could sooo live in this room, Layla!

How adorable are you two??! Did you know there would be planked wood walls underneath the sheetrock? Too cool! I just love your guest room....I want to be one of your guests, LOL! I'd curl up with a good book and you wouldn't see me, I promise!
p.s. who did the song for your video? ;)

Sarah said...

I saw the video. You guys are silly.

I love the guest room, especially those wonderful walls! What an awesome find. Did you know or suspect those would be in there or was it a big surprise?
I love how light and bright that room is.

Love your blog! Very inspiring. Just started my own blog as a hobby...

Love the video and the room Layla!

Looks wonderful, you are a true talent :)

We found the planks inside the closet and suspected they ran all the way down the wall.

We were a little nervous pulling back the first piece of sheetrock, but were very excited to find the wonderful planks!!

I LOVE the idea of this bedroom. I think that I want to have my guest bedroom look just like this!

Hi Layla,
Thank you for responding to my email... I see you found the 'real deal' behind those walls!! I would have been dancing, too!

You and your hubby are too cute for words! Thanks for sharing the you-tube clip. I look forward to seeing more of your designs.

Everything you touch is transformed so beautifully!

Stacie said...

You are so amazingly talented. Thank you for sharing these pictures with us - I only wish I had an ounce of your talent.

In addition, I really enjoyed watching your video. What a sweet couple you are.

Isabel Z said...

What a fun video. My favorite part is the beginning when Kevin and you are dancing--so young and in love. What a wonderful treasure waiting behind the drywall. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the finished bedroom and will line up to be a guest. I'd never want to leave which would probably not be a good thing after a while no matter how polite a guest I was:-)

Re:Fresh Design Studio said...

What a cute video! You guys have done such a great job with that room. Was that your husband's band playing the song on the video?

Linda Crispell said...

The mattress ticking quilt is one of the nicest, most stylish quilts I've seen!

Sigh....I love this room so much. I could look at it all day and keep finding more inspiration.

Lauren said...

Love it! Where did you get that rug that is your guest bedroom?

Clean and Classic Interiors said...

What a fun video and always something to look back on with fond memories! I loved especially how you were just running around with your broom - that would be my job too! I am sticking it in my inspirational folder - Love the wall!!

Blue Castle said...

I just love that bedroom. I'm re-doing my kitchen and thinking about putting up a wall like that, or using wood to make a rough wainscotting - instead of bead board, just strips of wood and then painted over. I really love the look and your style. You've inspired me so much.

Cindy said...

Boy did you remind me of myself, cleaning up during the tear out, it's so much better that way, isn't it? Adore your room, love the video.

Dana and Daisy said...

I still think your wicker planter to catch the throw pillows is brilliant!

Denise said...

I really enjoyed the video; it brought a smile to my face as I watched the two of you work/play together. Great job and glad you took the risk!

TanyaLea said...

I love the way you and your hubby "Play" together...it's clear that you are great 'friends' as well as partners!! It's that fun and light-hearted love that keeps a marriage together. Your playfulness was fun to watch! OH, and I LOVE THE ROOM, too! I loved it the first time I saw it in your older posts... great job! It's so "Coastal/Cottage Living" !!! :)

That is the sweetest happy dance I ever saw =)

oh, and the room is adorable too.
My friend gave me a link to your blog. Today is my first read. I had to google a bit about your band and I'm praying for you :)

Oh my goodness! We totally had this same discovery in an old farmhouse we just bought. We plan to rip down the sheetrock and paint it white just like yours. I hope it turns out as pretty!

Love it, beautiful!
