Hailee is one of my friends turned Bestie For Life (on account of practically living together the last 2.5 weeks…) She had just got new couches and asked if I would help her rearrange her furniture….that was the understatement of the century. And she sort of had no idea what she was getting herself into.
This is the before:
And the After:
There are SO many awesome projects that I cant wait to share with you guys! Here are a few of my favorites:
Can anyone guess what is on that old yard sale dresser? It starts with a PVC and ends with Pipe.
The before on this lamp is crazy. I covered the shade in yarn and gave it an Ombre effect, which I am sort of obsessed with right now.
I also used an Ombre technique on the rug. Its hard to tell because it looks like the couch is making a shadow on it, but really the hounds tooth is fading in and then back out
One of my FAVORITE projects is the curtains. The rod is made out of rope and eyehooks. One end is tied in a fat knot and the other end is secured onto a rope cleat.
Did you notice that we built shelves in the open window in the wall? Huge holes like that can be such a waste of space. By filling it in with open shelving you still have the open feel but you can decorate! Holla!!
Ok here are a few more shots for you to enjoy:
We have some Hanging Basket Chandy’s going on in the hallway to replace the boob lights.
Doing this room with Hailee and her amazing husband Mark was such an wonderful experience. It is EXACTLY what an Epic Room Makeover is supposed to be like. And believe it or not when I was driving home from Hailee’s this afternoon after taking pictures I started to cry! I mean, we still have the rest of her house (shhh…don’t tell Mark I said that) AND she lives right down the street; but I have developed such a great love for this family it made me sad that I wouldn’t have an excuse to hang out with them everyday!
After doing the original Epic Room Makeover I learned a lot, after working with Hailee and Mark I don’t feel overwhelmed and exhausted thinking about doing another one. So wait for the announcement in the spring cause an Epic Room Makeover might be coming to your house!
