A Crafty Little Room Makeover

Want to create a room with crafts as the common denominator? Look to Better Homes & Gardens to come up with a gorgeous inspiration room. Here is the link to this page.

Okay, what can you do to salvage this poor chair? Looks like the dog got hungry. Or bored. 

Here's a sneak peek.

Let's throw in these two discards.

Ooh-la-la! Look at that flirty little skirt!

This doesn't look too promising.

But now it does!

What would you do with these two cast offs?

Lookin' good!

This has definite possibilities.

Quite an improvement!

Throw this into the mix.

 Get out the spray paint. And you've got this!

This old table has seen better days.

Now it's a real beauty!

Looking a lot better now.

 And now you have one fantastic and colorful living space!

  12. Amazing! I know I couldn't do that.

  13. I love this room. Talk about fabulous decorating on a shoestring! I could live in this room with its happy colors. I wonder how they weighted the wicker flower basket...I'll see if I can find out on the BHG page. I wouldn't think all these patterns and colors would go together, but they do in a beautiful way.
