When an occasion referred to as Homearama invited us to help design & decorate a home from the bottom up as part of a seven-house showcase for folks to tour, we were loopy excited concerning the alternative (and thrilled to donate our fee to Richmond’s Habitat for Humanity). We pictured the large chalkboard wall serving as a enjoyable spot for a household to write down out meals for the week, jot notes to one another, or even scribble up a drink menu for a celebration if they need to use the small space as a makeshift bar – however we wished to set it up as a fun little coffee/wine station with a bolder look for the show.
As we talked about in this publish , we made an eleventh hour name to have the carpenters construct a wall-to-wall floating shelf which does two issues: it fills the visible void above the counters/home equipment, and it additionally provides quite a lot of comfort and function since it may house everything from mud pans and laundry soap to baskets full of washcloths and other cleaning supplies.
Enjoyable truth: we really crazy glued the Monopoly pieces down after worrying that small youngsters may find yourself swallowing them (a prospective purchaser with four children got here by way of before the show and her youngest daughter taught” us that lesson – thank goodness she did not actually achieve her mission to digest just a few houses).
