School starts Monday and I'm having very mixed feelings about it. On one hand, I'm ready to get our routine back, but I sure have loved having my boy around so much this summer. He definitely would be happy if summer was longer! So, we have bought new shoes, ordered uniforms and are frantically getting through the summer math. Just this week, I've gotten the approval to start three new projects. It's crazy to think I might finally be in a place to put clients on a waiting list. What?! I have finally come to realize I can only do so much and being too busy isn't best for my clients. With that said, I've got a few larger projects coming to an end and I can't wait to share them with you. My Bird Dog Point project is almost done. We are waiting on a few tables to arrive, as well as those last few perfect accessories. Here are a few progress photos from my last installation...
I've been working on a kitchen renovation these last few months and I can not wait to share the final results! The before and afters are going to be amazing. We took a small kitchen and bathroom (that was also the laundry room) and created all brand new spaces. My client wanted storage and we gave it to her. Here's a quick before and after shot of one area we totally transformed. As you can see, it used to be a very tiny eat-in kitchen nook. We enlarged the opening into her dining room and added new cabinetry. Beautiful and functional storage, with a wine fridge.
My Bucklake project will be gearing back up in a few weeks. We had a mad rush in June and July preparing for a party my client was having. We remodeled a powder bath and added tons of wall decor and accessories throughout her main living spaces. It was tough, but we did it. The next phase is ordering new furniture for three rooms, as well as window treatments, lighting and rugs. I will have lots to share with you on this as we finalize all the details. Here are a few before and after shots from my install last month.
So, there is the latest of what has been going on at JTD. I'll leave you with a photo from our vacation two weeks ago. If you are looking for a resort, I highly recommend Hammock Beach on the east coast of Florida. Our room was nice, Wes loved the pool and I loved the beach. And having someone bring you drinks and food, while you lounge around wasn't too bad either.
