Do you have rooms that you shut the door on?

 As I looked into the damp, dimly lit basement room with cracked floors and peeling walls, I burst into tears.

“How can I ever make this place feel like home?, I thought.

Have you ever felt the same way?

About Rita Joy


If you are looking for a course from a trained Interior Designer, that wouldn't be me!;) However, I am a passionate home-maker who has started and completed 29 room makeovers in 28 years ~ all of which were done under $500 (and most were way less!).

I've never torn out walls or hired building contractors, but I've used my creative determination to totally transform the look and feel of many of the rooms in the fixer upper homes we've lived in.

I love to laugh. I love to encourage. And, I love to tell stories on Instagram. I would be absolutely honored to meet you.
