Kelly's Room--Before and After

This is Kelly's room before and after. I bought that black dresser for ten bucks at a flea market and painted it. I painted the floor. I bought the orange spaghetti lamp at a garage sale for twenty-five cents. The metal headboard also came from a garage sale or flea market and I painted that too. It's old. It looks like a hospital bed, doesn't it? I have the footboard as well; just have to find the time to paint it. My sister chipped in and bought her the black velvet drapes, bedspread and vanity. I have a good sister.

Wow, what a difference. I'm sure she loves her new bedroom. Very chic. Great finds at the garage sales and flea markets too!

You have a really good eye for color and balance in a space. My MIL painted a room in her house a pink color and it is eye bleedingly brash and makes the little room absolutely closed in. This is a bright color, but won't make you dizzy:)

Wow! I love it!!!! Makeovers on the cheap are the best. And sisters are the greatest.

You have worked really really hard at that! And it looks great! I would never have chosen that colour scheme, but it looks terrific!

That is lovely. Very enticing!

You have a great eye for color and design - surely you've thought of adding interior design consulting to Kurt's flooring business? Hot pink and black - what a combination!

My two daughters would love to have a room like that. You do have an eye for color. It looks like something from a magazine :)

Fantastic, Debi! I really admire your color and design boldness--not many people could have pulled off that color combination, but you did. I'm with Jeff---you should go into interior design consultation.

I love what you did with your kitchen, too. I really like that vintage wallpaper. Where did you get it?
