So she decided to give her good friend Tara's apartment a total makeover that cost absolutely nothing.

That means she took all of the things Tara already owned to make her room as beautiful and functional as possible.

This was Ashley's plan of action:

Pretty handy, huh? Ashley enlisted Jeremy to help with all the heavy lifting.

Pretty handy, huh? Ashley enlisted Jeremy to help with all the heavy lifting.

First, Ashley and Jeremy moved the heaviest things in the bedroom — like Tara's bed and her vanity table — to give the room the best energy possible.

Pro tip: Ideally, you should position the bed against a supportive wall because it visually anchors the bed.

Ashley was ecstatic when they discovered the vanity table fit perfectly by the window.

Tara was complaining about the lighting in that area, and there's nothing better than natural sunlight.

Tara had an extra ottoman, so Ashley draped a throw blanket over it, and instantly turned it into a little dressing station. So cool!

She also moved another ottoman in front of the radiator to cover it up a bit, while creating a mini reading nook.

Pizza break time!

Ashley and Jeremy may or may not have prank called Tara during this intermission.

Another amazing tip if you have a ton of little mementos everywhere is to pick three that slightly vary in height to display.

That turns your knick-knacks into a collection, and not just a bunch of things cluttering up your space.

Ashley found some posters Tara had that were still rolled up in a tube. What? She just had to put them up for her.

I mean, Tara already liked them enough to buy them, so hanging them up (literally, on pants hangers), was a no-brainer.

She also repurposed a really cool candle holder by freezing it, cutting out the wax, and turning it into this awesome makeup brush holder!

Genius hack.

Okay, so Ashely cheated just a little bit by bringing in this plant from the living room, but the room needed just a pop of color.

It also created symmetry in the room.

When it came time for the big reveal, Tara could not believe her eyes.
