The transformations are done.
I must say i am really really impressed. 5 messiest rooms in Malaysia, now i can say that i don’t mind staying in any of them.
So, let’s have a look of the 5 entries!
2. Liew Li Ping
Whoa, this one i quite impressed. Her room looks really livable now. Very neat and i love the pure white concept.^^
3. Yvonne Mah
Her old 5-in-1 home office really appalled me. Yvonne is currently sharing her bedroom with her 4 kids (age 10, 6, 3 and 20 mths). 0.O. She would like to win the prize because the extra funds would help to replace her old, donated, worn out TV cabinet and sofa.
4. Shiau Lee
I kinda like her makeover too. Simply love how the Expedit bookshelves fit into the corner, and the clever use of the Ekby shelf and brakets. Good job!
Finally, Joe. Joe,oh Joe. He left a comment saying that he has about 3000 cds, about 400 books and not including mags, over two dozen shoes, and about 250 pair of jeans.
The pictures above are just a summary of their makeovers. Drop by www.IKEA.com.my to watch their makeover video! From the original mess to the process of transformation to the final makeover. It’s quite a wowzer! You can also learn a few tips from their makeover, stuff they purchase to help them with better storage.
And then, remember to vote for your favorite makeover (you can only vote one, and i already have my choice^^) and stand a chance to win IKEA vouchers worth RM50!!
Anyway, i’m not sure if you are interested, but recently i did beautify my home cheese home a little. Stuff all from IKEA, and here are some of my proudest purchase.
Remember my shoes?
I have 30 odd pairs and i seriously need something to store them up. I spent the longest time looking for the right shoe rack until i want to cry (really one). Either too big or too ugly. I almost wanted to give up, either i throw away 25 pairs of them or just leave my shoes lying around the floor forever.
Until i went to IKEA and had a brilliant idea. You know what i did?
I bought the Effektiv book shelf. Who says you must need a shoe rack for shoes?! Ha! I’m so clever.
With frosted glass door. This remains to be the best investment ever for my shoes.
Also wanna share some of my favorite items from IKEA:
This is a Komplement drawer with dividers for accessories storage. I love compartments!
The Expedit bookcase acts as a divider between the entrance and my living room (keep all the good fengshui in!!!). The plus point is that i can also put some odd items there that don’t fit into my wardrobe/cabinet.
Oh. This is my fav make up rack ever. It’s Anordna LYX storage unit.
I can’t believe how amazing it is, with just the right compartment for lip gloss, eyeshadows and other stuff. Love it!!!
Ok. That’s all! Until i win myself some vouchers by voting for the contestants HERE!
one man’s bookshelf is another man’s shoes rack lol…good one!
I like to keep my room as simple as possible. #2 is 😈
i saw the bag i gib yiu & the racksssss!! yay~ 😆
yes darlinggggggg i miss you
Haha… A book shelf as a shoe rack? Ingenious!
That book shelf shoe rack was the hardest thing to assemble, remember that whole epic project?
Anyway the 2nd room is impressive, IF IT IS INDEED THE SAME ROOM. I’m not entirely convinced.
It is the same room, if you look closely. Has everyone voted? I still cant decide which room as I think they all did a FANTASTIC JOB!!!
Now i wanna win the RM50 Ikea vouchers 😀
ehh! u aso want dt day bed !
i aso wnted dt for a long time OAO
ok now i KNOW i have a fellow shopaholic friend in you! ahahahahahah!!!!! love your place (and choice of colours)
i don’t care but i’m going for the RM5,000 from ikea so we can go shopping together! LOL!
vote for me! vote for me! (that would be under my REAL name joseph lee cheng kim)
PS – no fair the others didn’t even have furniture to start with. and much lesser stuff than me to deal with. LOL!
PPS – love the komplement drawer comparentments!. did i mention i love accessories too? LOL! make that stuff for me like half a dozen watches, hundreds of studs, earrings etc for my seven piercings, and about three dozen rings. anyway, like the riveted black slingbacks you had on he rack in the before pic. you got taste!
the rm50 voucher is kinda kedekut 😳
Very organized… and love how u come out with the shoe rack *wink*..
Personally, I’m not won over by the first makeover. Maybe it’s the absence of colour in the photo, but it’s too stark and sterile for me to feel comfortable in. Combined with the bars on the bed, it now looks like the Infirmary room of a prison. I’d crave some form of visual stimulation or risk going insane. I prefer the bold choice of Red in No.4 for that reason.
Neat idea for holding your footwear – women’s shoes are often wonders of design, so it’s a nice way to make a display feature of them also. It would perhaps work less well for guys though – some things are best locked away unseen in an airtight box : P
House make over…
Haha, I think all of the makeover looks good. Hmm, my bedroom also need to makeover leh, with the expecting arrival of a newborn, how cheesie, any idea?
This is SHIAU LEE, the person who created the 4th entry and room with bold colour of red…Thanks HALF for your comment…. And hope u can support me too.
I’m not someone famous, or someone who has contacts with big world like klubbkidd… i have small circles of friends, therefore, my votes are not coming up….. And when i read the T & C, i realized i need to be in the top three for the grand price.
Like HALF, i think my design is a good too. But seeing the rate of my votes, i think is better for me to give up…. but i also hope i have the chance to win the grand prize as i promised my brother and cousin who helped me out that i’ll get them something in return of their effort….
For Cheesie fans out there, if you think no. 4 deserves help to win, please vote her… her name is SHIAU LEE…. I already set up a group in facebook…. in order to promote myself http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/group.php?gid=97303559403&ref=nf…. which i also don’t know whether it will work or not….
Feel free to visit my blog at http://www.dainnocentwitch.blogspot.com/ for further story…. thank you…
stunning makeovers…voted. 🙂
Thank you…. i appreciate it…
its a great transformation.all the makeovers are worth praising because it is looking neat and clean and everything is kept in place.
I’m SHIAU LEE, the creator of 4th makeover with bold colour of red …. Thanks to Half for comment and hope u support me as well.
I’m not a famous person, or a person with great amount of friends. But i worked hard with my design. But my circle of friends are not big enough for the vote. And according to T & C, i need to be in top three in order to get chosen as the grand final.
So, dear cheesie fans out there…. if you think i deserve to win with my design, please vote for me…. my name is SHIAU LEE
awesome makeup rack! now i get the idea how to organise mine.. 😉
Effectiv bookcase as shoe rack! That’s ingenious. Looks brilliant.
#1 Black or White not too bad, yet Too Bad…can only vote once 😐
Hmm, now I’m contemplating getting another cupboard for myself heehee
I will vote for u!!! 😀
I love IKEA!! I used to shop there a lot when moving into an apartment for college. That idea of yours is very creative lol. I just have one of those shoe racks on the wall where I can hang shoes.. but it runs out of space fast.
That’s messy???? Those rooms practically look like sterile operating theatres compared to my place. I should have joined. I’ll show them messy. Even the Narcotics Department (who claims they’ve seen messy) was appalled by my place when they raided it. 😉
i <3 zour shoe cupboard la omg
you in switzerland!!!!!!!!
Do you plan to match Imelda Marcos, former first lady of the Philippines, in terms of number of shoes?
By then I will call you cheeserpede 😛
Shiau Lee, I worked hard too luv. You think easy lugging around furniture on your own and trying to assemble everything? LOL!
I didn’t have any team to help me out – and yes, it took four days to clean things out. Horror!
Anyway, rules state judges get their pick from the top three, and I just hope I end up top three.
And whoever thinks my room wasn’t messy before – honestly, take a look at my video. LOL! I got too much stuff, and a shoebox of a room to fir everything in.
Cheesie, you taking up my offer to go shopping? (Personally I do more on warehouse sles and thrift shopping)
haha but i scared!!!! you make such a terrible shopping buddy i scared my credit card look bao anytime!!!
you’d be surprised! i’m a shopaholic but bargain hunter. hehehehe…
ok deal. jom.
Poor fellow… so many voters, should ask them for help to move ur things ma….. so, all the best to u and me… i also aiming for top three only…… this voting-based contest, so tired… more tired than assembled the book shelf….
a shopaholic always has fun with purchases. period.
so lovely I am so jealous
I lover yours wow… lipstick also got room
Can’t believe that they’ve so much stuffs lying around!
Best habit is to give every ‘stuff’ a place for storage – those that you didn’t know where to put it, create one or give it away.
Try minimalism living! Look at how a family of four did it – http://www.becomingminimalist.com
can u pls be a darling n let me noe the price of the Effectiv book shelf and also Komplement?thanks ^^
oh dear. you know i tried to think very hard for a long time but i totally forgot about the price!! can i check and get back to you? or you can always go IKEA and see see, Effectiv is, obviously, at the living room/bookcase area, and Komplement is at the wardrobe area. 🙂
okie thx babe 🙂
