My Dream Job

It's been a long while since I have had the pleasure of picking out paint, furniture or accessories for someone. When I was in high school I did internships for Comforts of Home and Black Goose Design. Then I went to work for Country Furniture doing their displays and later went to work for Norwalk Furniture. I LOVE to decorate and re-arrange things. It isn't the easiest job to conquer when you have small ones around the house, that's the reason I haven't done anything in a while.

Todd's dad approached me with the idea that I help select new paint for Beacon Metals, the company he owns. I was ecstatic! It's been a slow process, but the rooms are getting done. Thankfully the painters are grandparents and know the small amount of time I have available, so we have done most of our explanations over the phone. Here are the first two completed projects:
