{minneapolis make-over artist shares her tips}

No, she’s not sharing the latest beauty and make-up secrets of celebrities – she’s sharing, in our opinion, much more valuable information!

Kim Yeager is a life-long lover of design, yet loving refers to her work as “junking” and herself as a “junker.” For her, amazing design is the result of a tasteful, creative well-done makeover.

As a decorator and “junker,” I’ve discovered plenty of beauty and utility in stuff others have kicked to the curb.
– Kim Yeager

Kim shares her favorite make-over tips for giving new life to old furniture in a recent article on BobVila.com, Paint Makeovers: An Expert Tells All.
