Woman’s Shelter Facelift
September 29, 2010
How does a client with a run down house, dated and worn out furniture, little to no budget and unable to change on their own sound? To most designers this probably describes their worst nightmare. Not us. As a matter of fact this was one of the most rewarding experiences of our lives.
This project is for a local women’s shelter run by Family Service of the Piedmont which is a non-profit agency focused on building safe and healthy families in and around Guilford County, NC. Family Service provides counseling, victim services, prevention services, and community education. As part of our commitment to our community, we support organizations that empower and heal women as well as enrich the lives of children. This Women’s Shelter does all of that and so much more – we couldn’t help but want to reach out to them.
Special thanks to our friends who made this possible:
Plus many private donations from our friends and family (thank you for your support!!)
Our friends at CMI donated a ton of upholstery for the children’s area.
Designer Amber Price moves some of the new upholstery around.
Amber and our muscle man Lee remove some of the older upholstery to make room for the new items!
A fun colorful spot for the kids to play and watch tv.
How fun….colorful bike wheels! What kid wouldn’t want to hang out in here?
Designer Anne Barnhardt hangs the paper airplanes.
Thanks again to all our friends that helped make this face-lift possible.
