before and after

before & after: camilla’s room + meredith’s chandelier

by Grace Bonney

camila of high-heeled foot in the door recently decided to change careers to pursue a job in design and if this room makeover is any indication, it looks like she made the right choice. camilla recently transformed her guest bedroom into a serene blue and yellow hangout and i think a lot of us would be happy to be a guest staying in here. you can read more about the transformation process right here. thanks, camila!

[have a before & after you’d like to share on d*s? just shoot me an email right here with your images (low res, please).]

meridith of smittybaby made over this large chandelier (a budget-friendly craigslist find) with a few cans of red spray paint. sometimes a painting job can really bring new life to a piece and i love that meridith chose a great red hue over slightly more predictable white or black. thanks for sharing, meridith!
