definitely a bigger fan of the before, but the vibrant red of the after is nice.

Before & After: A Painted Dresser Gets A Nursery-Worthy Upgrade Professional Project

I'm all for the wall being turned into an art exhibit. Cheap and different sized frames with fun/colorful pieces in a jagsaw puzzle type layout (get a map from a hometown, funky photos, DIY art from pinterest, anything goes). Won't make you feel claustrophobic like adding a shelf or 'stuff' in the entryway and not as permanent as painting the wall - which could work too.

Painting the door so it pops would also be more of a statement than all the white.

don't get me wrong, i like the after and think the tiny adjustments to the cabinet really changed the whole look but

i call 'deceptive' on the before. either this before picture was taken in between the 'reno' process OR the before isn't accurate and the DIY-er took down wall adornments (note the nails) for a starker before and bigger wow from the after.

When I initially clicked this After reveal I thought, "Okaaay, get ready for some Chevron!" and now I must say, I would've welcomed that in lieu of this after.

Not my cup of tea.

Not a 'paint hater' here but I don't particularly like the chair that dark, I find you lose the fun details of the woodwork of the chair and wish it stayed lighter...not a fan, but if you like it then that's what matters.

The first thing I thought when I saw this room is "I want it!" then I noticed the kids books - so needless to say it will definitely stand the test of time as I am a 25yr old female. I wish you were my mom to put so much thought, love and time into this room.

hello! loves the giveaways but two things:

(1) you need to fix the product description and remove the words "sed as the product description during the giveaway so please be descriptive.:" that are in the beginning

(2) I get that there is typically a 3 day window to enter the giveaways. but when are the winners drawn? If the gievaway ends on a tuesday are the winners drawn/notified on that wednesday or is it at the end of the whole shebang?

This looks gorgeous and the colors added by this design would seriously improve the concrete/hospital white walls and muted linoleum floors!

Though I can't imagine the state of that rug....duct tape + college dirt + floor = gross!

Mind you, I assume the regular college student wouldn't go through all this trouble to design so they'd probably be clean
