– [Ashley] We are gonna give Tara’s room
a zero dollar make-over.
– [Tara] I’m just hoping that we can
rule the confiance in here, you know?
– [Tara] I’m gonna kill you.
(playful music)
– Oh my God.
– Hey guys, my name’s Ashley
and today I’m gonna give my friend Tara
a zero dollar make-over.
Basically, I’m gonna work with
everything that Tara already owns
to make her space as beautiful
and as functional as possible.
Tara is one of my really good friends,
she is hilarious, she’s
the funniest person I know.
Super hard working,
and just has the best energy in the world.
So we are gonna make her
space equally amazing.
For the record, I am not
an interior designer,
I make no claims of being a professional,
I just love homes, and
decor, and all that jazz.
So, I’ve been doing a lot of research on
room arrangement, and
even Feng shui princliples
to try and incorporate some of that
knowledge I’ve acquired
in the past few weeks
to Tara’s space.
Our other friend Jeremy
is also gonna come along
to help us with the heavy lifting
and all that sort of stuff so,
it’s gonna be a good time,
I’m pretty excited about it,
and, let’s go see what
Tara’s working with.
(Tara laughs)
– I don’t wanna look like a serial killer
like inviting you to my serial killer den.
Hey guys, come in, come check out my room.
(playful music)
This is where all the magic happens.
Magic as in laying watching
Netflix, being late to work.
Here we have my night stand,
it’s a little bit of a
clustered mess but, it works.
Over here you have my
big ginormous dresser,
none of the drawers close
because they’re so stuffed with clothes.
That’s my own personal problem.
We have tons of candles, they’re
mostly burnt out and old.
So this is like my mini library.
I love having all my
comedy books and art books.
I have lots of little
Cha Qis around always,
but they’re kind of a cluttered mess.
I think by biggest fix for this
would be just getting better
lighting near my vanity.
This is my first apartment so,
I didn’t do like, the best job decorating
and putting things together,
but the potential’s there
because the space is so good.
I just need some help.
– Alright, Tara has just
handed over the key,
it is time to get started
on this space lift.
(upbeat music)
(knocks)
There are really three main components
to making a zero dollar make-over work.
It’s moving stuff, organizing
stuff, and decorating.
The first thing we’re
gonna do is move stuff.
Big items like the bed,
the dresser, the vanity,
those all need to be repositioned
to give this room the
best possible energy.
First, we’re gonna move the bed.
Ideally, headboards should be positioned
against a supportive wall
because it visually anchors the bed
and also creates a protective energy
around your head as you sleep.
There’s about 37,000 hair ties
under this bed and two socks.
Next step, we are moving the vanity.
Tara was complaining about
the lighting near her vanity,
and sunlight is the best
light, and it is also free.
So, the vanity is going
right under the window.
Our project fits! Yeah!
(both laugh)
– That was actually good.
– [Ashley] Another big move is the mirror,
originally had her mirror facing the bed,
which is 100 percent the worst
possible spot for a mirror.
Mirrors have a lot of
chaotic energy to them,
because of that, I moved hers
so it wasn’t in line with her bed.
She also had an extra ottoman
that wasn’t super cute,
so I draped a throw blanket over it
and now she has this adorable
little dressing station.
I put the other ottoman
over by the radiator
to kind of cover it a little bit
and also to create a mini reading nook.
Since we’ve worked so hard,
I think we should treat ourselves
to a prank call for Tara.
– Yes.
– Okay
I need to get my phone.
(Ashley grunts)
What should I tell her?
Do you know how to turn your water off?
Yeah, that’s it, okay,
I’m just gonna do it.
Okay, ready?
(phone dialing)
– [Tara On Phone] Hello?
– Hey, um,
– [Tara] Wait, hold on.
– Oh, okay, uh.
– [Tara] Hello?
– Hey, hey, do you know
how to turn off your water?
Your water, your like, um,
like, the under the sink.
– [Tara] Why is it flooding?
– Yes,
– Yeah.
– I don’t know
– We couldn’t get the
dishwasher off
– We couldn’t get the
dishwasher to shut off
and I was pressing all the buttons,
and now there’s water everywhere.
Oh god, I think it’s
going through the floor.
– [Tara] No, no, no!
Is the doorman coming?
Did you call down?
– Yeah, yeah, yeah, he’s coming.
I’m (Expletive) with you!
– [Tara] Are you serious?
(Ashley laughing)
– [Tara] That’s not funny!
I was about to cry, I was
like, “What happened?”
Oh my god, I literally almost threw up.
I was like, I was like,
“I’m gonna kill you.”
– I was like-
– [Tara] Ugh, you (expletive).
(Ashley laughing)
– Well get excited, it looks so cute.
– [Tara] Does it?
– Yeah.
– Yeah.
– [Tara] Then I’m gonna come
back in like an hour. Good?
– Uh huh.
– Fashionably late.
– Yeah okay, bye!
– [Tara] Bye.
– Okay,
(Ashley claps)
Are you ready to decorate?
– Mmm-hmm.
(both laugh)
– Mmm-hmm.
(playful music)
If you have too many little mementos,
and don’t really know
what to do with them,
if you just get three pieces
that vary in height slightly,
and put them together,
suddenly you have a really
cute collection instead of
just a random odd pairing of things.
I was cleaning up, and I
just happened to find this
brand new poster that Tara
has not even hung up yet,
and it goes with the color
scheme, it’s super cute,
if I can open it and show you.
Ah, there we go.
I took a pants hanger from Tara’s closet,
and I’m gonna clip it
on to the top of here,
it doesn’t sound like
it’s gonna look cute,
but it’s gonna look cute, I promise.
Another thing Tara had
a lot of were candles.
She really likes candles
and she goes through them pretty quickly.
I just couldn’t bare to throw
away this cute little jar.
So, this is one of my
favorite hacks of all time.
You can freeze a finished candle,
and then once it’s
frozen, just take a knife,
and kind of like, stab it.
Uh, don’t hurt yourself please,
and the wax should come right out,
ready, I’ll show you right now.
So, just like that, and then there you go,
we have this adorable jar now
and I’m gonna put Tara’s
makeup brushes in it.
The biggest change I made
with the night stand,
was actually not moving it,
but moving all the stuff off of it.
I gave her little charging station
on the other side of the room
because not only does
it make it look nicer
and more relaxing, but also,
she won’t stay on her phone
all night as it’s charging
and she’s trying to fall asleep.
It looks really sleek and nice
and hopefully she’ll get a
better nights sleep because of it.
I know this is a zero dollar make-over
but I cheated a little bit
because I stole this plant
from Tara’s living room
but that’s okay ’cause we
just needed a pop of color
on this side of the room,
and also to even out the visual weight.
So I stole a plant, okay?
– [Ashley] Ready?
– [Tara] I’m nervous.
– [Ashley] Here we go!
– I see light.
– I see light…
– Wait, oh my god!
(playful music)
Wait, it’s so fucking clean, first of all.
Oh I love these posters,
that were sitting in the
corner of my room for so long!
Wait, this looks amazing!
Ashley, what!
This is all new, wait
this looks really good.
Why’d I never think to
use the window sill,
I didn’t even know I had a window sill.
I love it! Ashley!
You’re my best friend!
I feel like, I just feel cool living here.
– You are cool
– You made me feel cool
– Like, you already owned
all of these things.
I just sort of put it on display,
but you picked out all these items.
I know, and I just feel like
there’s so much more room
here there’s so many like,
activities you can do here.
Just waking up and staring at
like a clean area in
front of my face is like,
beautiful, I feel like I’m gonna feel
really refreshed in
the morning, organized,
do one thing here, do
another thing over there,
not just like, throw
all my stuff in a pile.
– [Tara] Thanksville.
– Yeah, I gotta, I gotta leave.
– Get out, everyone leave,
leave me alone to hang
out in my cool adult room
– Except me!
– Yeah, you can stay.
For like, only for like 15
minutes, then you have to leave.
– [Ashley] I have really bad pizza
in the kitchen if you want some.
– [Tara] Oh, I thought you were gonna say
you had pizza breath.
– [Ashley] Oh, I have that too.
(Ashley laughs)
– [Tara] It smells amazing.
– [Ashley] Garlic knot breath
– [Tara] Ahh.
– [Ashley] That’s all folks!
– [Tara] That’s all folks, get out!

    I have green walls, a blue tv stand, a blue-gray desk, a antique like floral nightstand, and a tan rolley chair…I’m grateful but it’s an odd combination
