My favorite fantasy. I wish I had closets big enough to do this with - unfortunately some of my bedrooms are already just slightly larger than closets.

Torn: There's so much bad/ugly/knockoff furni-junk cluttering up thrift stores everywhere, that I'm glad to see a piece rescued and used, but I have to agree that the original had enough style that maybe someone who appreciated the lines could have put it to better use.

Cheers for "rescuing" a disused beaten up piece, Jeers for the bland/generic "after"

It just amazes me when I see transformations this dramatic that someone could see past the shag carpeting, pea soup walls, and flinstones-esque fireplace to something like this!

Wow - it takes a LOT of vision to see past that wreck of a chair to something so cool - nice work!

First off - for that price who cares? And actually - I suspect with the brown undercoating of the original vinyl, this could get a really cool, crackle, aged look over time that might not be unappealing.

Like the grey with different decor/accessories, but like others I prefer the "before"

I couldn't love this home more (unless they spelled tacos correctly - I'm sure there's a story there I neglected to read). Way to take what could be a sad, bland home and make it truly yours!!

I think it's a nice step forward. What might really make it a "wow" would be to paint the walls a hue from the new backsplash, and use that color as an accent color for dish towels and accessories. Nice work as is though!

Do you think you could just dab a bit of the cream on with a q-tip or brush if you didn't care about having perfectly round circles?

Just be careful that when you discard the arrangement you're not adding it to your home compost pile. Several flowers shown here (crown vetch, queen anne's lace) are weeds that you wouldn't want re-seeding in your garden.

Orange shag carpet, lava lamp and sunburst mirror?

I really like the low, minimal backsplash along the wall behind the sink. Taking the tile all the way up the wall there would be oppressive. I don't think I've seen something like that before.

Bummer. That Shaker bench belongs home with me in central PA!

No way! I love the wrinkles, it adds texture and depth to the whole thing. Besides, if she lives in the humid south or northeast - it'll "iron itself"

So what do you do if you have a great, gorgeous door like one of these, but have to hide it behind an ugly storm door because you live in the Northeast and it is exposed to weather?

Since when did suggesting you know something about a plant before you stick it in your yard become snobbery?

@ the comment "Who cares, as long as you're putting your hands in the dirt and enjoying the process?" No one is saying (especially not in the above interview) that you shouldn't enjoy the process - but it does actually matter what you "stick in the ground". Many plants sold in big box and local garden centers are highly invasive or are not disease resistant and contribute to many environmental problems, and choke out our native species when they escape from backyards into our woods and prairies.
