This Boring Beige Living Room Is Unrecognizable After a Lowe's Makeover
In a dramatic episode of Lowe's original series The Weekender, designer Monica Mangin works her magic on a mind-numbingly boring living room. The builder-grade space hasn't been touched since the homeowners moved in two years ago, hence the beige walls, beige carpet, and little else in terms of furniture or architecture. Monica changes all that to stunning effect with a handful of DIYs and some surprisingly affordable furniture and decor from Lowe's. Check out the dramatic after shots and get all the makeover details ahead. Then, watch The Weekender episode for the complete story!
The dramatic transformation began with ornate wall moldings. Monica explains that while builders charge a lot for these details, they're relatively easy and affordable to install yourself. She then painted the room with a subtly elegant greige paint and hung a glamorous tiered crystal chandelier ($250).
Before Monica's makeover, the room is bare and boring with no interesting details or focal points.
