The edict for this roundup was 10 room makeovers for under $1,000. I'm happy to say that most of these do-overs are way under that price point. One actually clocked in at under $25! So here goes...ten of our most memorable budget
Jacqueline had been meaning to buy a headboard and add more lighting to her bedroom, but hadn't found the time to do either. Enter NY designer Amanda Nisbet who, in one day, made over the room to suit Jacqueline's style perfectly. Besides not having a headboard and enough lighting, before Jacqueline wasn't
Yesterday, we told you all about our plans to make over our little boy's bedroom. Before we get to the big reveal, let's do a mini recap.
We moved into the Curbly House when our son was two weeks old. Because we were insane people who purchased, gutted, moved into, and attempted to furnish and decorate a whole house with a brand new baby, his room was left looking fairly generic....
Tiny and tired. That's what Kirsten's master bathroom looked like before its makeover. The 'after' didn't change the square footage, but it certainly did add huge amounts of style. A glass shower door opens up the space visually
When we found out we were having a baby boy, my vision of a neutral nursery of ivories and golds came to a crashing halt as I suddenly wanted the room to feel very boy like- with strong greens and dark blues and unmistakably boyish features. So I changed the natural taupe wallpaper to the hunter green safari, and charged on.
When you think of using an old tire to make something, you probably think "tree swing." Sure, swinging while sitting inside a tire can be fun, but it's not a very imaginative use of the tire itself. For something really outside the wheel, check out these
This kitchen needed some attention. Some TLC. It was in desperate need of closed storage and new flooring. Well it got both of those things. Along with new cabinets, a refinished ceiling and beautiful new flooring. Keep reading to see the amazing makeover.
I love the idea of making a bathroom look and feel more expensive without a wallet-busting makeover. Now, granted, the bathrooms pictured in the accompanying roundup aren't your run-of-the-mill bathrooms, but Julia's advice could make a luxurious difference even to the most mundane WC. Below is the CliffsNotes version of Julia's suggestions. Which ones would you consider doing? Which have you already done? Any of her tips
If you're cleaning out your closet as part of an organizing resolution, then here's an idea for all those t-shirts you'll be getting rid of!
If you checked out the Curbly House tour we posted last month, you might have though our house projects were all completed (we did use the words "It's Finished!" in the title, after all). Alas; we must confess to some wishful thinking/titling. There's still lots to do, and our side entryway was the worst offender:
The space is a little odd; it's a landing between two flights of...
No nursery is complete without a rug. While planning out the nursery, I knew that I wanted something to match the geometric vibe of the room, without being over-the-top. Not being able to find one I liked, I was thrilled when I happened upon some upholstery fabric at a fabric store in Idaho. I originally planned to use the fabric for one of the crib's throw pillows, and the pattern was simple enough to recreate as a rug!
Give a basic doormat a fresh new look with this simple tutorial for creating a typographic statement mat, super easily.
Stop the presses, people. We have a kitchen makeover that isn't white! As a matter of fact, Wendy didn't even change the color of her gray cabinets. New powder blue walls tone them down while
If you're into fiber arts, then you'll probably be as excited as I was to find these fun projects for your home. If you're not so good at knitting or crocheting, WAIT! Some of these projects are super easy, and you can always look up the basic stitches on YouTube (that's how I learn almost every new skill!). Keep reading to check out ten of my favorite yarn-based home decor projects.
This house tour is a long time coming. We've officially been in our "finished" house for one year, and we thought we'd celebrate with a big old fashioned house tour. So we're going to show you the super-clean, polished, sparkly version of The Curbly House...which looked like this exactly once, before we, you know, started living in it again!
Of course, no tour would be complete without a nod to one's roots, so we're posting the 'before'...
