Tanya has thrifted, owned and sourced everything throughout the last three years of living here but never really utilized what she had. When we were discussing starting to make over her space, she said she didn’t want anything new but did want plants so that’s what I tried my hardest to do. I can’t wait to bring you the rest of her studio to life and work through this renter friendly series with you guys xx.

  • Nice makeover, the only thing I would have done different would have been to mount the mirror slightly lower, so that the top edge of the mirror was in line with the top of the doorway (creating a consistent line across the length of the wall within the architrave), and maybe pushed up the shelving above it up by 2cm, to add breathing space between the framework as it now houses the tv as well as entry to other parts of the apartment. (I’m an ocd art director)

  • Do you always do your videos wearing lingerie? I am really put off. I'm not male and I'm not a lesbian. Are you doing it on purpose for views? I'm sure it works but it's just really disappointing. You look naked and I can't figure out why you'd do any physical labor like that.

  • Wow! What an awesome makeover, and I love how you used the things she already had - especially in these crazy times with COVID going on so many of us have a very low or no budget to actually buy all new pieces. I am in the process of rearranging things in my room (I share a 2 bedroom 570sq foot apartment with my sister and her two young kids, and since a big corner of the small living room doubles as my sister's bedroom ALL my stuff - crafting, sewing, business stuff, clothes, bed, desk, etc etc pretty much has to fit in my room, kind of like a tiny 124 sq foot studio lol.) I got some great ideas watching you rearrange things here and thanks to this video think I have figured out a layout in my room where I will be able to fit a small reclining armchair I've been wanting for ages but didn't think I had space for. Keep up the great work!

  • This made me really emotional ❤️I was homeless for the past 3 years and I only recently found my very own room in a house with a bunch of other girls. I'm in the process of trying to makeover my room (as a renter) to reflect my personality, and it's kind of nice (?) to see other young people who seem to have themselves more "together" than me struggle with their space. And the stuff you said at the end about making your space a home no matter your situation really lovely. This gave me a lot of inspiration and hopefully I can find some cool thrifted finds to add to my room soon!

I'm a very private person and my space is a part of me that I don't share that with just anyone. Its also nice of know I'm not the only person who feels this way about bringing other people into their space. I like that your tone of voice said "don't you dare bad talk my friend", its so sweet and shows how much you love her.
