This is not an "OMG! You lost 100 lbs.!" kind of makeover. This is more like,"Hmmnn...did you change your hair? get new glasses?" But therein lies the beauty: small changes are sometimes all that's needed to make a room feel pulled together. The bedroom above belongs to Noah and his little sister Everly and here it is after a few simple changes:

So, what changed? The blue paint is gone, there's a new bedside table, new artwork and a new, cozy rug. Oh, and the bed is made ;) Each change is subtle, but has the cumulative effect of a more inviting space.

Noah and Everly's mom Jessi says this about the room makeover:

When we first bought our home this room was my three-month-old son's. I never felt like I ever "finished " designing his room before his baby sister, Everly was born 20 months later. When my daughter was born I tried to add feminine touches to the room, but it just wasn't working. Finally I started over with some fresh paint, added some new artwork, and accessories and things came together.

Overall this is a simple room for our simple family. We made small changes to the room on a real budget to pull everything together and we are happy with how everything turned out.
