Makeover Magic

Oh, how this room bores me...

But now, I find it very exciting!

I love it! It's beautiful! I'm no longer embarrassed by this room in my home.

And, see that talented man sitting in the chair...that's Jeffrey Evans of Jeffrey Evans Design. He's a wonderful friend and a great designer.

While A. was out of town recently, Jeffrey and I plotted and designed a plan for this sad little space. Okay, truth be told...I didn't design a darn thing. This is the first room you see when you enter our home. The goal was to make it livable and useful. A. can now meet clients here.

Most everything in this room was already in our home. We...uh...I mean Mr. Jeffrey Evans relocated some furniture, hung artwork and pulled all the pieces together. He really worked with me and found some fabulous items at Target. See the chocolate rug on the floor? Target. And the yummy red curtain panels? Target. Plus, the two red throw pillows and the aluminum starburst mirror also came from Target. The only other item purchased (unfortunately, it's on the other end of the couch so you can't see it in this shot) was a large pottery piece to hold tripods and stuff and some whatnot too.

It's so nice to walk into this room now and sit down, relax and enjoy.

I love it!!!! I need that guy to come to my house and see what he can do with my living room/dining room/playroom/entry combo that we've got going on.
