Happy Friday friends!!
And Happy Fall! We’ve been preparing our home for a fall house tour (virtual of course) and I can’t wait to share that with you soon.
But first I have to bring you the much anticipated Teacher Lounge Reveal…which is long overdue!
Back in August I shared our plans for this new space which included painting the walls, updating the cabinets and countertops, adding a feature gallery wall, and bringing in new furniture and appliances.
The PTO had given the school a decent budget to work with (Thank you!!) and the rest was up to some fabulous ladies at the school, Margie and Barb and myself, to dream and scheme ways to stretch that budget to create a warm and welcoming lounge for the staff.
Let’s start with a quick look at the before’s:

Oh my Gosh Colette, you have outdone yourself. The room looks just beautiful and how sweet of you to do this during the summer. I can't believe what you ladies have done to this place! WOW!!!
The makeover is stunning!! I can't believe the before and after pictures. The gallery wall is absolutely fabulous and so fun to incorporate the kids artwork. The kitchen looks brand new, even with just a few updates. I mean, totally transformed. SUCH a great job!
Barb Weston says
Colette – our staff is in love with the new and SO improved lounge! You have taken it from a dreary room avoided by most to a gorgeous, welcoming and HOPPING place. It's not only filled during both lunch periods, but also used by all kinds of groups for all kinds of meetings. Thank you for sharing your time and talent with us. You've made such a difference! And, it was a blast to work with you. Except for chiseling old glue globs off the wall. Not fun. But so worth it. 💜 -barb

Colette – Our staff is in love with our new, stylish lounge! You have helped us take that space from a dreary, often avoided lounge to a vibrant, warm HOPPING lounge! Not only is it packed during both lunch periods, but groups have been been using it all day for all kinds of meetings and collaboration. Thank you for sharing your time and talent with us. Margie and I had a blast working with you (except for chiseling old glue off that massive wall – not fun). ��. And we made a new friend in the process.

What an AWESOME project! A great cause and you did a great job. The stripes + gallery wall are my favorite detail!
