Like those gals that travel thousands of miles to the Today show, hoping against all hope that Hoda and Kathie Lee will pluck them from the crowd for a much needed and well deserved makeover, my glitzy, gaudy, gold headboard needs an intervention.
I’ll take this thrift shop girl from the 70’s, in all her feathered hair, knee high socks in roller skates with pom poms, to a glamour puss fit to walk the catwalk in Milan.
She’ll live happily ever after in her very own room with it’s loft like exposed brick and she’ll welcome guests who come to visit.
They’ll ooh and ahh her and she’ll blush and remember her disco dancing days and wonder how she got so lucky.
Then she’ll welcome the other misfits who reside in the room with her.
She’ll ride off into the sunset on her handsome steed, after his own spray painted makeover.
She may even fall madly in love with this dashing bull fighter and they’ll reminisce about the days when paint by numbers were all the rage.
So I’ll be working my magic like Louis Licari and when I get through with them, they will turn towards that full length mirror and cry in astonishment.
This room is still getting beautified – but you can check out my house tour here where all the rooms are ready for their close up.
