    Put the bed head in the alcove?? i agree with taking the doors off but instead put the futon in their and it can pull out, then put the white drawers at the end of her bed with the TV on...

    That's a LOT of dark blue paint for such a small space to paint. She had a LOT of stuff. What did you do with all that wasn't used? Where will she put it after you leave?

    The American subsection of people who do the word slurring/baby talk thing is beyond grating, I'm trying to deal with my rage at having to hear people speak like that so I can concentrate on the great (hopefully) content.

      Because $300 will get you nothing or because if you're renting you're not allowed to breathe without permission? Lol

    I think the curtain rods should have been white to match the molding already on the wall. Obviously the room was vastly improved, but that size TV might be difficult to see at such a distance. Hope the landlord was cool with removing the doors (where did they go??) The larger frame with the floral should have become the corkboard and the kitty picture left as is.
