Stately Bedroom Reno: After

Who: John O.
Where: Elgin, IL

All the furniture was purchased secondhand off Craigslist or from estate sales, including the antique chandelier found in pieces in a cardboard box. We painted and repainted several times until we got it just right. The ceiling looks white in the photos but is in fact a very pale sky blue with a darker blue around the edge to create a tray-ceiling effect. Although the paint is a backdrop, it is very important in telling the story.

Who did the work: We did all the work ourselves. Cost: $1000-$5000
