Before and After: Betty's Ugly Apartment

Before and After: Betty's Ugly Apartment

I have a soft spot for makeovers, even ones on television sitcoms. Remember when I asked you if you'd ever been tricked about an apartment? Betty Suarez, one of my favorite characters on television today, certainly was. Here's what her apartment looked like upon move-in.

To see how Betty infused the apartment with her unique style (and cleaned it up!),


I love the use of the sunshine shades of yellow in Betty's apartment. The exposed brickwork, which was previously covered up with a muddled pea-soup-like paint color, is also totally charming. That bubbly, bright yellow chandelier is also perfectly poppy, and as sunny as Betty's personality. Say what you will about Betty's crazy outfits; I think her eclecticism lends itself well to her home decorating, if not her wardrobe. Are you a fan?

It must have taken Betty MONTHS to strip all of that yellow paint off of those brick. How does she find the time!!!

Does anyone else think it's weird that her tub is in the middle of the kitchen and living room?

Betty isn't a fab dresser, but she does have better taste when it comes to interior decorating!

I love her new apartment and the touches of Mexican decor. It's so colorful and sunny and random yet the whole thing somehow works!
