However, it turns out that she has been occupying this basement bedroom since high school. 13 years had already passed and the room has yet to graduate from unsightly green walls, clutter, and overall drabness.

"Hindi talaga ako marunong mag-ayos ng gamit. Kahit anong basa ko nang magazines, 'di ko ma-apply apply (I really have no idea how to organize my things. No matter how much I read magazines, I can't apply them in real life)," says the homeowner. She didn't know where to start and which problem to tackle first.

Hannah moved the work area to the opposite side, where it's roomier. She ditched the pitiful computer table in favor of a sturdier and bigger table, and added pretty but functional details such as the wallpaper-covered corkboard.

A gauzy fabric from Robinsons Department Store is a much more elegant alternative to a plastic shower curtain.
