before & after: liam’s nursery + sara’s dressing room

by Grace Bonney

i am seriously in love with this colorful nursery makeover from marta and jason or lorem and ipsum. marta and jason converted their home’s “bonus room” into a baby room for their new son liam. i think it’s such a cheerful space- and it’s got some real character without going overboard or stepping into “disney overload” baby territory. to read more about their makeover, click here!

oh, to have a dressing room all to myself. or heck, a closet that’s deep enough for me to hang clothes straight (mine hang at an angle because the closet is too shallow)! lucky d*s reader sara got to create a lovely dressing room just for her clothes by transforming a small bedroom with a little diy love. using a $5 bolt of clearance fabric as inspiration, sara painted the walls gray (benjamin moore’s “coventry gray”), made no-sew curtains with stitch witchery, bought lighting from world market and a rug from pottery barn and added some inexpensive ikea pieces for clever clothes storage. i am so jealous of this girly dressing room i’m already of thinking what tiny corner of my home i should try to convert…thanks to sara for sharing- click here to read more about her makeover process.
