Epic Room Makeover Giveaway 2012 Room Reveal

WHEW.  What a whirlwind month this has been!  2 weeks ago I had no clue who the winner of the Epic Room Makeover would be, where they were living, or what their room would become.

Vintage Revivals-Epic-Room-Makeover-Horizontal

I have spend the last week in Peoria AZ completely overhauling Kelsey’s Master Bedroom with my 4 BFF’s and let me tell you, we had a BLAST!  After the first Epic Room Makeover last year, I knew that I would need some support to get it done this time and my girls did not disappoint.  But we can talk more about this later.  I know what you are REALLY here for.

Just to refresh.

This is what Kelsey’s Bedroom looked like Before:

Super neutral and preeeeety boring.

This is what it looks like now:

I know.

Its amazing.

I am calling the style Industrial Global Modern.  I am SO excited to share all the tutorials and info with you guys over the next few weeks, some are simple like the rug or painting the nightstands with Krylon:

And some are not for the faint of heart, like the Orange and Wood Ombre 3D Cube Wall (but it was SOOOO worth it!):

I think that the most important decorating advice that anyone should ever take is to make sure your home feels like YOU,  not like a catalog.  So guess what that meant?  Showing up in AZ without ANY sort of design plan.

I wanted to meet Kels and get to know her a little bit beforehand so that their house was theirs and not mine.   So let me tell you a little bit about this cute couple.

Kelsey and Spencer

They are so incredible, I mean can you imagine how that would be?  To have a strange group of people show up at your house to overhaul it and be willing to let go of the control?  Kels and Spencer are some of the funnest and kindest people I have ever met,  it is so apparent that they love each other and their son more than anything in the world.  Kels is “I want to put you in my pocket and take you home forever” cute and has such a fun personal style.  The problem that she was having a hard time bringing it into her home.  So this room is a reflection of what I perceived Kelsey as amped up with some Mandiliciousness.

We hit up every Homegoods in the valley and of course found some killer deals, like our modern tufted couch for $350

If you follow me on instagram you got a sneak peek at the headboard when we hauled it home from Ingo’s house.  We updated it by painting the upholstery (tutorial on painting fabric to come!)

One of the most impactful projects was hands down the sliding barn door and Royal Design Studios stenciled bathroom:

Sliding Door How To Stencil Wall vintagerevivals.com

Then of course there is the HUGE canvas art.  We found that giant baby at Restore for $20 and updated it with some paint and lettering:

Sure is fancy how you love me canvas

The one request Kelsey had for her room was hanging lamps over their nightstands (which I was VERY excited about!)  So we rounded up two vases from Homegoods and made some.  And guess what?!  We shot a video of the ENTIRE thing!  So you will be able to see in real life how to drill through glass and not die!  EEEEEEE!


Speaking of videos.  You guys have NO clue the excitement that is in store for you.  Would you like to see how to play Lets Make A Deal and negotiate the price of something you love?  Good.  Cause we are SO doing that.

Oh, and you wont want to miss us crashing the Lowe’s morning meeting and doing cheers with the entire staff, I was never meant to be a cheerleader, lets just put that out there.

So I will shut up for a few so you guys can check out the rest of the room.

This entire event wouldn’t be more than a dream if it wasn’t for the incredible sponsors that put their faith in me and gave me the opportunity to makeover Kelsey’s room.  Blogging with integrity is something that I am so passionate about.  Relationships with these companies were built on my love for them first.  I cannot even put into words the gratitude that I have for them.  I would love it so much if you would click over to their Facebook pages and give them a pat on the back.  I would love to do this contest again and so we need to give them a virtual hug so they will too!!  Just click on the image!






I am so beyond thankful for my amazing friends that helped me execute the room.  Mia and Jilly are 2 of my most FAVORITE people in the entire world, go and check out their blog, you will be totally inspired and I cant wait to see where our adventures go from here!


Hailee is pretty much the reason this whole thing went down.  I needed someone who would go with me wherever it may be and she was totally willing.  I am pretty sure there is no better friend than that.  She is everything that I am not and we are the perfect DIY match.  This pic was taken after we missed the turn to AZ and ended up in Cali.  Cause we are awesome like that.


We had so much fun shopping and going to lunch the first few days that we were in a mad crunch to finish.  Lindsey from Better After, Jamielyn from I Heart Naptime, and Kendra from My Insanity showed up and took a good day off of our work load.  Love those girls!

There is SO much I cant wait to share with you guys!


The ladies in our 3M DIY Starts Here safety gear.  We are hot.

  56. Great job Mandi! You do need to be on HGTV. :) I’m very impressed!

  57. Oh it’s so awesome!! Can’t wait for the tutorials! It looks like you have done with the dollar store rag rugs what I have been meaning to do for yeeeeeears. You beat me to it, of course! I’m very interested in your method, and I can’t even figure out how you did that cube wall, so spill! Great job!

  58. Bah!!!!! This is AMAZING Mandi and team! Everything is perfection. :)

  59. Totally FA-Reaking amazing!!! How do you do all this crazy stuff?!?! Your creativity is just too much for me. If this blogging thing doesn’t work out for you I’m sure Nate Berkus could use an intern. That room is just totally fabulous and I’m totally stealing the barn door idea. The hubs has no idea what’s coming. Can you post that tutorial first so I don’t have to wait so long???? Thanks!

  60. Mandi, oh my word! WOW!!!! I can’t wait hear all about it. It look sooooooooo fantastic!!!!

  61. Amazing job Mandi!! You are such a talented lady! I love everything and that wall behind the bed is to die for! I so need to enter your next one b/c I could definitely use a little vamping up in my house!

  62. Mandi, I am virtually bowing to your awesomeness. Can I please be your intern when you have your own design show? I make a mean cup of hot chocolate.

  63. You never cease to amaze me. I am blown away. That wall is A.Maz.Ing.

  64. GORGEOUS! I have to tell you upfront. I’m stealing that wall design. I want my bedroom emerald green with rustic touches…and that’s just the ticket! I’ve been stumped as what to do on the wall that the bed is on. I’m so glad I can steal your genius! (I’ll link back of course! …if I ever actually get it done!) ❤ you like crazy!

  65. It looks great! Where did you get that floodlight floor lamp?

  66. looks so great!!!!

  67. Wow, this is incredible! I bet it won’t be long before you are hosting your own TV show!

Your ideas are genius, your creativity is never-ending, and your persistence for what you want is unstoppable. This room is funky, colorful, young and comfortable. It’s perfect for Kelsey and Spencer. (the cutest young couple in America!)
    Now….. onward and upward!

  75. Beautiful! functional! colorful and quirky! nice work. :-)

  76. WOW! That is BEAUTIFUL. I really could use a room make over, this was very inspiring. I need to get to work now.

  83. Um, I can’t decide what I like best – the wall? the barn door? the settee corner with those OMG sexy sequin pillows (WANT WANT WANT)? the pink legs on the dresser? It’s all too fantastic! Totally pinned & tweeted this room. :)

  91. Loved The canvas art. AMAZING… and the rest is just woooow

  92. I love that you used the sliding door again! I noticed that it’s different than the last time, but still no tutorial, or at least what hardware you used. :'( Maybe soon?

  93. yes it is an amazing work and the new colors especially the orange gave the life to the room and i want to tell that any one will be afraid to use vital colors like the orange but you take the risk and did the good job

  94. Where is the tutorial for your orange and wood 3d ombré wood panel wall? So love it!
