You may remember how impressed I was with Calli’s ability to paint the gorgeously precise design on this dresser makeover about a month ago. Well, she’s done it again — this Navajo art-inspired dresser is an equally cool display of how a simple (ha!) painted design can completely transform the look and feel of a humdrum piece. Read more about both dressers and Calli’s other creations here. Amazing work, Calli! — Kate

I don’t know if I’m alone here, but I get the urge to repaint every room in my house at least twice a year. I just can’t get over how transformative a new wall color can be. Case in point: this gorgeous living room makeover from Amy!
This room’s success doesn’t hinge on paint alone, though. Amy also decided to swap out the non-functioning fireplace for a bio-fuel burner insert from Ecosmart and add modern floating shelves to house her massive book collection. The books look fantastic against that bold ocean blue, and the giant floor cushions are pretty cool, too. I’m tempted to drive to SF, grab a book and make myself at home. But I suppose I’ll just admire it from afar. Great job, Amy!
