So Easy A Caveman Can Do It
I'm about to share with you a design secret that's been in my family for generations. Actually it hasn't, I just felt like sayin that. Truth is, my dear sister, Beuhler (not her real name, but the only name I ever call her because eveybody and their mother knows her!) shared this secret with me awhile back and it's changed my life forever.
I've decided that the best way to share this secret with you is by giving you a demonstration. I'll do a before....... and then an after. The theme is kids rooms. Specifically, a teenage girl's room. To achieve the sought-after designer look of this dramatic makeover, you must have two things. First, a great imagination. All of the great designers have this in common and it's not as hard as you may think to acquire. Secondly, a huge amount of will power. And that's it! Easy peasy. Even betta, I'm gonna show you how to do it in less time than it takes to say
What? Elbow grease? Fuhgetaboutit! This project is so easy you won't even break a sweat.
So are ya ready???
Here is the before:
And here is the after:
For your added convenience I've even included a list of materials. Cuz I'm nice like that.
Step 1: Walk up to your teenager's room.
Step 2: Shut the door.
Step 3: Every time you walk past the door, imagine that it looks like the after picture above.
Now, this designer secret can also be used in playrooms, basements and messy bathrooms. Just about any room that gives you the creeps or induces intense nausea when you walk by qualifies for this easy makeover tip.
Feel free to share this with your friends, co-workers and family members - especially those with teenagers.
