Here’s the “before” video. Let’s all make fun of how many times I say “love it.” One thing I do not love is making videos. My videos are unedited, so kindly forgive my rookie mistakes. And apologies if you get seasick watching it.
It’s hard to believe that I stuffed so much furniture in that one little room, isn’t it? Amazingly, though, there is more furniture in the room after the makeover than before, yet everyone tells me the room looks bigger now. Mission accomplished.
The look I was going for is beach cottage meets industrial chic. The colors: blues, greens, whites, and silver — all cool, calming colors of the sea. I infused liberal doses of galvanized steel, paint, lighting, white fabric, and tassels. Now the room is serene, less cluttered, and practical.
