Allison is a friend from high school that recently moved home with her husband and kids. They bought a beautiful home in our town and wanted to have her sitting room and living room done. Her husband recently retired from the military, so I’m sure you can imagine that they’re ready to have a place to call home and live comfortably in. Enter: me. When I met with them, her husband Kris, mentioned that he has a love for Batman. This man served his country well, so if all he asks for is Batman to be in the reveal, Batman he shall have. I should mention that her 2 kids are boys — who also love Batman.
Allison and Kris needed furniture. They had a recliner, 2 chairs, coffee table and side table that were staying in the home. They wanted it to be comfortable, yet stylish enough to be kid and adult friendly. Rugs, decor, lighting, sofa, ottoman and of course, Batman. That’s what I needed to find. They had a $2,000 budget to get everything needed for both rooms. I bought, I thrifted and I made. Going with the Restoration Collection helps with a smaller budget because it gives me more hours to do things myself. I hired a friend to whitewash the fireplace, because I felt the brick needed to be broken up a little. We painted the mantle white so that it stood out against the white wash.
I’m always excited for them to see their home when I do the reveal. I put a lot of effort and time and I hope that comes through when theses families sit and enjoy their home. With that being said, welcome home Allison and Kris. Enjoy every minute.
