the magic of makeovers

Don’t you wish you could sprinkle pixie dust around your house and—poof!—see instant changes? If only redecorating, remodeling, repainting, restyling, rearranging, and redoing were that easy. Sorry, there aren’t any magic wands in this issue, but you will find lots of amazing makeovers revealed right before your very eyes! For starters, turn to page 91 for abracadabra-level transformations in our story “Flip It! Style It! Hack It!” Here’s how it worked: With DIY wizardry, we flipped a bunch of flea market finds. This old chair, now sporting a modern black vinyl seat, is one of them. Then we took on styling challenges, like outfitting a basic bookshelf with colorful, playful accessories. And finally, we hacked (a.k.a. customized) a trio of new pieces from IKEA. Ever seen a chair with a pink…

dear hgtv magazine,

Thank you for profiling the House Tour “Pops of Color Come to Life!” in May. [Homeowner] Terri Shanahan is my kindred spirit. I love her style, in all its rainbow glory! —Amy Farley, Lancaster, PA Right after I completed my own gallery wall, your May issue arrived with an awesome article [“Get- It-Right Gallery Walls”]. I can’t wait to do another wall so I can try out some of the fun ideas you suggested. —Paige Jensen, Ashland, OR Even though I’m only 11 years old, I like planning out room designs. Reading HGTV Magazine has taught me a lot about colors, patterns, and decorating. Your stories are helping me on my way to my dream job of being an interior designer. —Anna Ochs, Sandy Hook, CT When I saw the paint color Drizzle by Sherwin-Williams in…

kitchen bucket list

1 baking soda “To make an oven interior look new, put 1/4 cup baking soda in a bowl, then add dish soap to form a paste. Remove the oven racks and set them aside. Clear scorched food bits with a paper towel, and rub the paste on with a sponge. After 10 minutes, scrub and wipe the interior clean with a damp microfiber cloth.” Arm & Hammer baking soda shaker, from $1.50 for 12 ounces, at grocery stores 2 stainless steel spray “Fingerprint-y fridge? Spritz this on, then wipe clean with a microfiber cloth following the metal’s natural grain.” Weiman stainless steel cleaner and polish, $6 for 22 ounces, amazon.com 3 stone cleaner “I like a plant-based product that doesn’t leave my kitchen smelling like industrial chemicals. This stuff makes granite and marble sparkle.” Method daily granite cleaner,…

dining room bucket list

1 apple cider vinegar “To make lingering food odors from dinner disappear without an air freshener: In a bowl, mix 1 cup apple cider vinegar, 1 cup boiling water, 2 cinnamon sticks, and 1 sliced orange or lemon. Place it on a towel in the center of the table and let it sit uncovered overnight.” Heinz apple cider vinegar, from $1.50 for 16 ounces, at grocery stores 2 silver polish wipes “These work fast and are a lot neater than old-fashioned polish. One wipe will tackle tarnish on three to five pieces; then just rinse and dry with a soft cloth.” Weiman silver wipes, $7 for 20, amazon.com 3 magic eraser “You can use a Magic Eraser anywhere in the house (just wet and wipe!), but it really comes in handy for wall scuffs from chairs.” Mr. Clean…
