I hope you enjoyed the tour of our Matthew’s Hope apartment from yesterday. But now comes the fun part.
You know, when you watch any show on HGTV, you just can’t flip that channel until you see how it all turns out. I have fought off sleep like a ninja before just to see how the Property Brothers handle that weird basement, or how JoJo turns that creepy house with the bug infestation into my dream home.
Well, you can rest in a just a little bit, but for now it is time for the big reveal!
The color scheme is one that is easy to keep clean and we carried it throughout the small apartment to make it feel cohesive.
The pallet sign was a collaborative effort between Dean, Diane, liquid nails and me.
It took all 4 of us.
This room needed some serious help in the functionality department (sounds like a clothing store for 70’s dance attire). The microwave stand was too bulky and there needed to be a place to hang bags and jackets at the back door.
The table and chairs were mismatched but functional. We just wanted to make it a bit more like home.
This was most definitely a collaborative effort. Matthew’s Hope was so easy to work with and totally had the whole “OH MY GOODNESS” reaction at the end (just like good clients on HGTV), thank you for that.
Our Winter Garden Target generously donated a gift card that covered a couple of items on our wish list. The manager had heard about the good things that Matthew’s Hope has done and was happy to help out.
My friends Kelli and Jill sent in items that we were able to use in the apartment. And Shea allowed me to chain her to the sewing machine for a night and she picked up my kids from school each day. Good friends make all the difference, don’t you think?
Finally Diane and Dean, you guys were the best partners in this project. Thank you for having fun with me and laughing at my jokes. You guys are a great couple. Mwah!
After everything was completed, I got a call from Karen who is the executive director for Matthew’s Hope and she asked if we would be interested in working on the remaining 6 apartments. Well, twist my arm… 😉
Diane and I are ready to push the other little apartments over their hills.
If you are interested in being a part of this project, you can contribute to Matthew’s Hope HERE. Each apartment will need between $500-600 for items that need to be purchased. We would love to have you partner with us on these other apartments!
