Even if you have a beautifully decorated room, a popcorn ceiling instantly casts a dated vibe over your hard work. The good news is that you have options when it comes to transforming this ugly surface into something that adds to your room, instead of distracting from it.

There’s no horribly dated light fixtures, no crappy peeling wallpaper, or any odd woodwork that needs to be ripped out. Even the walls are white and ready to go. Not much you can do to improve this space, right? So very, very wrong.

The Right Way to Paint IKEA Furniture — Apartment Therapy Tutorials

We’re big fans of IKEA hacks and upgrades so we’re completely in favor of adding a little personality with paint. But not all IKEA furniture is alike, and therefore, not all requires the same paint treatment. I’m referring to IKEA’s popular material of choice: particleboard covered in laminate.

The “Mountain Mural” Bedroom Makeover

Makeover by: Pam Lostracco , owner of Pam Lostracco Custom Designed Murals
Location: Toronto, Canada

Last spring, I started envisioning how my artwork would look at a larger size. The mountain design I created for a calendar was doing really well, so I decided to start my first large piece by transferring the mountains onto my bedroom wall.

Before & After: A Surprisingly Bold New Entryway on a Tiny Budget

Mila participated in a recent round of the One Room Challenge , but didn’t want to get overwhelmed by a major hard-core makeover. So, instead, she chose to redo the single wall just inside her entryway, which is also part of her living room. As is, the space was fine, but she was bored with the current gallery wall of photos, and wanted instead to make it as impressive as possible with just a little work and money. Her goal for the end of the project? That this wall would scream with “greatness, sophistication, and happiness.”
