Today, I experienced a first!!! With out the aid or instruction of my contractor, I installed carpet....on a staircase nonetheless! Not only was I able to do this myself, with no training, instruction or experience, it actually came out great! What a sense of accomplishment! The dreary staircase now looks vibrant and refreshed! I am so proud of what I was able to do!!!!!!

As I have previously mentioned, Horder house needed MAJOR work!!! The bathroom was no exception! We scrubbed, we painted, we are changing fixtures, the works! The original bathtub was the least offensive thing in the room...but it had one small caveat -it was Barbie pink! Now, Barbie pink is fine for a 6 year old girl, but let's just say that color did not work with design plan! I bought tub epoxy (and almost knocked myself out due to the fumes! LOL!) But, let me tell you it was worth it. The tub now looks brand new. Total cost for this brand "new" tub....$12.00

When I took on the job at Horder House, I knew it was no small job, but I was ready and eager for the challenge. What I did not expect however, was the laundry list of problems we would encounter, during this cleanup and remodel. It basically turned into a TOTAL GUT REHAB! While work is still on-going, here is a little sneak peak, into where the majority of my time, efforts, creativity and labor have been going into. When the job is finished, I will post complete before and after pictures, so stay tuned!!!!!
The set design for the Pandora's Box Runway Experience is shaping up to be spectacular! This show will be like nothing else of it's kind! We are working hard to create visually stunning sets, imagery and an awesome, one of a kind show experience! It is so much fun to do work that I love and to be surrounded by enthisiastic, creative people!

It's probably a good thing I don't sleep much! I have been working my rear end off lately!!! What started as a "lipstick design job" has turned into a major gut and remodeling project. The space had been occupied by a horder and was left in dire need of repair. Not only have I had to be designer, I have had to be painter, architect, project manager, property liason...just to name a few of the hats!! As intense as it has been, the project is really starting to take shape. I turned trashed, into TREASURE!!!! I am exhausted, but proud!!!! As soon as the project is completed, I look forward to posting before and after pictures!
