. okay, so here's the makeover i've been working on for a week or so . i really did make some fun videos to show you this space by acting as if i was on design star, but they were too long and i couldn't seem to edit enough to get it all in . so went with just showing you a few highlights .
. this arrangement may not be permanent . it really disrupts the flow of traffic...but it's worth a try . so far, with just the two of us, it's fine . the we'll see how it works out while babysitting this week...and i'm thinking it will be too cramped when family comes for the holidays . for now, i like ! oh, and the best part...this makeover cost less than $12 ! taking elements from other areas in the house and getting cheap finds (the shelf - $10 and a piece of flannel - $1.83) it was a fun, yet inexpensive challenge !
