Room Makeovers Full of Style and Function

Jamie Hammill of Richfield, N.C., and Mary Waggoner of Snohomish, Wash., are the winners of AARP's Recession Remodel Room Makeover contest, announced online last year.

Hammill wanted to redo her mother's 1940s kitchen and add new lights, cabinets and appliances. Waggoner wanted to update her bathroom to accommodate her parents' wheelchair and walker.

Local designers and remodelers, along with universal design consultant Cynthia Leibrock, donated their time and expertise to the projects. View results at
