Project Redesign

Hello, all. Obviously, I haven't blogged in over a week. I know everyone deals with things differently, but honestly I couldn't bring myself to talk about fabric in the face of such unspeakable tragedy. I was actually working on a very worthwhile project last Friday when I got the news, so I thought I would focus on sharing that with you today.

Project Redesign is a wonderful program in Nashville that provides room makeovers for low-income families and interior redesigns for community centers and other non-profit organizations. On Friday, I got the opportunity to work with an amazing group of volunteers to make one single mother's apartment a home. I'll let the photos do the talking . . .

Here is the living room before . . .
and after . . . 


The 6-year-old daughter's room before . . . 
And after . . . 
I mainly helped with the girl's room so I'm very fond of it. 

And, the little boy's room before . . . 
And after . . . 

It was such an amazing experience, and I'm so glad I got the chance to help and meet an extraordinary group of dedicated women who make it all possible.

You all did an amazing job, Kathy. And it's so much more than decorating, feeling good in your home makes you feel good inside! Merry Christmas!

It must have been nice working for a good cause and doing what you love at the same time. Wish I lived closer so I can join you and Brandy.
Have a Merry Christmas Kathy!
