Well, okay, it looks nice painted yellow. But if it was "gorgeous to begin with", as blondrea says, and if the purpose of the Before and Afters is "to give people inspiration," as poolie says, I'm not sure why it's even being shown. Surely most of us can be inspired to paint something a color we like without having to look at a Before and After first.

Yes, Jeoffry, the Shakers used lots of vivid colors. How about a yellow ochre floor with red trim?

I'm glad to see a Before and After that isn't just a paint and/or reupholster.

To decide what furniture to get, think about the way YOU live, Do you like to flop on the couch and watch your big screen TV? Get a couch! Are you happy eating at the counter? Skip the table. Once you have decide what furniture YOU want, then try one of those furniture-arranging websites to move it around.

Before you do anything to it, check Craigslist. Would you rather spend money on something that's good to go, or would you rather spend time and effort on something because the price is right?

Those must be my old chairs you're finding in the thrift stores. Very uncomfortable. Try before you buy.

Tennesseegirl, even if your landlord will allow a transformation like this, it's not really a good idea to spend a lot of money on a rental. This bathroom looks expensive!!

I noticed several comments referring to this as a "powder room" rather than a "guest bath," and I for one do not like to take a bath in someone else's tub. Does anyone actually use this one?

I am puzzled by this room. To me, it looks like a closet with only a sink in it, so the only reason you would go there would be to wash your hands. And the only reason you would need a special room to wash your hands would be that they were really, really dirty--I could imagine a room like that right off the garage, say. Emily's room is gorgeous, but I can't think it's very practical.

Seems like a lot of work for something made out of particle board. Looks smashing, though.
