    The makeover is very cozy and actually gives it the illusion of having more space. I wish they would have left the tile in the kitchen though.

    The before was fricking empty. So I'll go with the potential of the original and say they ruined everything, not just the tiles. Only improvement is that awful wall next to the front door in the first pic.

    WAY too cluttered. It looks like an expensive junk shop.

    To give the benefit of the doubt, it *is* a very small space and that's hard to overcome. I do, though, think they put too much in the space and it looks cluttered. It does seem cozy though and I do like the way the kitchen turned out.

    Could they have crammed anymore furniture in there?? Too much junk. Needs editing.

    I like the kitchen, but there is too much stuff in the living room area. I think I'd really like it with better furnishings and less of them.

    I think they did a good job, it is not my style but I can appreciate it. I also think it looks over staged to me with props for the photo shoot that you really wouldn't have in real every day life.

    Wow, I actually like the BEFORE pictures better. Except for the kitchen. Otherwise NO WAY.

    I prefer the after to the faux-disney set that the before was, but yeah, too many things in there... Apart from the fridge... WTF made then do that it it????



    Ah! they still live there....
    our final before & after of the day (stay tuned for a new “we like it wild” post next!) is a large scale home makeover project. and the best part? the home owners, jennifer grey of the old painted cottage and her husband, did almost everything with their own two hands. the final results are really spectacular and prove that with a little willpower and free time on the weekends, a lot can be accomplished. great work, jennifer!

    Stuffed cottage: this is my MIL's dream home. I hate the decor, but I think they did a pretty good job.

    The original kitchen tiles looked okay, but imo a small house will look larger with one kind of flooring used throughout.

    The big mirror on the living room wall really opened up the space.
