out with the old and in with the new
Aunt Deb (Beth Quinn's Mom) and I have been planning to do a make over in her home . Little did we know how the project would grow and come to include the whole family..... That is My Aunt Barb, my Mom ,Beth and Cal have all played rolls in this first phase face lift ( 4 rooms to go) of Debs space. The goal was to get her feeling like her condo of 7 years is finally her home!! To do this it was needed to give it the cottage feel she adores and to make a space for her creativity and ebay business while still keeping in mind that she loves to entertain her family and needs a cozy feel as she lives by herself. Here is what I came up. I used black and white as the main feel as it gave the 80's oak a chic sophisticated feel and would be a simple background color theme that would tie all these multi purposes together in one big open space. We all pulled together in cleaning, painting and repairing to make this happen. Deb had a lot of good things to work with, they just needed a new twist put on them to bring them into their new environment . Oh and 10 trips to the dump and Goodwill with a tad extra stuff no longer needed!!
