Two weeks ago a a neighbor and I restyled one of our other neighbor’s homes. We volunteered to this for our monthly neighborhood women’s club meeting. Our neighbor, Patty had a house full of furniture and collectables. Patty bought the home 12 years ago when she was single, three years ago she married and her new husband added his life of furniture and collectables. About a year ago Patty’s mother in law suddenly passed away leaving her home contents to Patty and her husband. Needless to say Patty was overwhelmed by furniture lamps and collectables.
80 hours later and a fresh coat of paint my other neighbor Deb and I reshuffled and moved furniture, reorganized collections of art, china ,books and family heirlooms. The end result showcased and blended Patty and her husband’s lives and family history. Collectables that had been hidden away are now displayed and enjoyed.
