Eddie transformed the room into a light-filled, colorful room that’s exactly what Elizabeth pictured for herself.


As Eddie worked to revamp his yard sale finds, a talented team of professionals worked to turn the room into a crisp, clean canvas with Benjamin Moore paint for the walls, trim, and ceiling and white Dixie Home carpet for the floor. A new coat of custom lacquered paint by J’s Color Creations freshened up the bedroom set while saving lots of money. Eddie had a woodworker install canopy rails to the four-poster bed and had Calico Corners create custom bed panels and a matching bed skirt. Coordinating pillow shams and new drapery, also by Calico Corners, a painting by Louisiana artist Mallory Page, and upholstered Parsons benches from Lillian August complete the room’s cheery style.
