Sleep Center Redesign

As some of you know I work at a sleep center.  Most of the time I don't get to use my creativity when I'm there but this is the one exception.  We recently decided to give the lab a little facelift.  I was asked to redo the lobby and the bedrooms.  We were definitly in a time crunch and needed to stay on a tight budget.  Here is what I came with over the course of a couple days.  I would have loved to do more but maybe as time goes by we can gradually add more things.  I don't have before pictures of the bedrooms but I do have a couple of the lobby. 

Here is the lobby BEFORE...








and AFTER, eventually I would like to paint the lobby a different color to make it stand out but for now this will do...










love these lights from IKEA!




this table was in the lobby before and the mirrors were in some of the rooms I just grouped them together to make them look more contemporary and added a new lamp and some vases....




and here are the bedrooms, in here we just added new lamps, some pictures and I upholstered the headboards.  Before, they were just plain wood headboards but they had become damaged over the years.  I followed the same instructions that I did for the padded headboard here but I used OSB board because it's cheaper and used 1/4 inch foam instead of two inch foam because I didn't want it to stick out much.  Then I just drilled holes in the existing headboard and screwed them in place.  You can't see the damaged places at all now.  The material I used is actually vynil made to look leather.  It is very practical in this situation because we just wipe it off daily. 










New tables and flat screen TVs....



the doors got new numbers too!

I recognize those tall reddish vases from my days in retail management at Pier 1. These are some amazing makeovers. So did you get a raise or bonus for doing this for them?
