Screen Shot 2014-02-17 at 3.01.11 PM Earlier this month, GHID launched our first-ever dream room makeover. I am particularly excited about it because I was the one who created this opportunity for our loyal and new GHID friends! This giveaway provides homeowners that feel like a particular room is just stuck in a rut and it's just not vibing with you and your family's needs. GHID will be offering one lucky winner with a bedroom, nursery, office, den, or entry room of their dreams. Just to show you how your room can actually be turned into something that looks like it should be featured on a fabulous blog or in your favorite home magazine, we're showing off before & after photos of a house that went from a nothing house to a cool and cozy gem!

This home belongs to Garrison and his partner J, and it was a home that had beautiful bones...and it needed a ton of love. Luckily, there was a vision and a budget that would flip this home into a room that they could come to adore. What all did they have to do to make it pretty? Oh you better believe that they were doing DIY projects, like priming the wood paneled walls, ripping up carpet and refinishing the hardwoods, and tiling over their brick fireplace. Don't worry, if you win the GH iDesign giveaway, or want to sign up for your very own online interior design service, GHID will offer you chic solutions that are easy to follow and implement in your own home.
