Some of the staffers at Southern Living have shared their own rooms as part of a big collection of "Budget-Friendly Room Makeovers". We pulled a few of our favorites...
...out of the 40+ photo slideshow.
Shown above, left to right:
2. Photo stylist Buffy Harget's painting studio turned home office before and after - the makeover consists of a coat of white paint (including the floor), dark furniture and colorful window seat cushions.
3. Associate Decorating Editor Anne Turner Carrol's living room before and after - as part of the makeover, old carpet was removed and hardwood floors were installed and covered with a new rug. Green painted moldings and windowsills and a gallery-style art arrangement complete it.
