The Internet is packed with inspirational ideas on interior design but turning them into reality is often much more challenging and requires talent, skills and, well, hard work. But what if we told you it’s possible to do an extreme makeover in 5 days all by yourself and on a budget? A former fashion photographer, currently a blogger as well as a YouTuber, Leanne Lim-Walker, recently went viral on Twitter after she shared how she turned an empty, dull space into an impressive dream room that looks straight from a magazine cover.

Leanne and her fiancé, Paul, bought their house a year ago and have been renovating it room by room to make it feel like home while sharing the journey on Instagram.

“It was my 30th last weekend and I had surprise guests visiting. Instead of them sleeping on an airbed in an ugly blue room, I took it as a chance to make over another room in the house (in 5 days),” Leanne shared the story behind the urgent transformation of the guest room in her Instagram post.

But don’t get fooled by quick and easy before and afters. If you decide to renovate a place, you have to be prepared for a serious challenge. Even the master of her craft, Leanne, opened up about the arduous task. “A very satisfying ‘the after’ and that’s in no time for you but a week of blood, sweat, and tears for me,” – Leanne said in her in-depth YouTube video that reveals the process of redoing the guest room.
