The first video of the “Extreme Room Makeover” we planned for our son while he was in Mexico during spring break is an introduction and overview of the space we had to work with. As you will see, there’s a lot to accomplish in a short amount of time, and, this is key, on a limited budget.
Where’s Ty Pennington’s sponsors when you need ’em?
Sure, it would’ve been smart to plan this a little more in advance so we could’ve had more time to look for bargains, but it was kind of spur-of-the-moment. And you will witness over the course of the week that necessity is often the mother of invention (did I just mess that phrase up?).
Can’t afford all new fixtures and accessories? Try a can of spray paint!
Can’t find a new, bigger bed that’s affordable? Scrounge through the wood pile, buy a few more pieces, and…voila! A new “cottage style” bed (imperfections intact).
Floor didn’t turn out? Wow, a rug covers a multitude of sins.
Follow us as we take you on a tour of the room:
Check back tomorrow and throughout the week for further installments of “Extreme Makeover: Room Edition!”
