Okay, so I’m back with another update on the progress of my room at Nicholas House for Room Service Atlanta.
Today I didn’t get any pictures because I was busy doing a lot of running around. I had to do an hour and half drive (45min there and 45min back) to get the paint. Then once I got back, I had to do a review for another sponsor that I was I was able to have come out and donate paint sticks (Again, I’m going to do a post for everyone who donated).
This post is mostly for me to clear my head. I am completely overwhelmed with this space
I am sure that the other designers are feeling some of the same feelings that I am. I knew that there was going to be a lot in the room as far as clothes goes (I expected that), but if I knew the amount of stuff that was going to be in my space before last week, I would have seriously not done the room. I would have first tried to team up with another person to see what they were capable of bringing to the space to see if we could really do it.
No matter what I do to the room, I CAN NOT organize or purchase the needed storage solutions the residents of the space need. I don’t have the funds to bring in help nor do I have the manpower or contacts as far as a contractor is concerned. I feel bad about what I am able to do, because this family truly needs more than paint and new sheets. I think what stresses me the most is knowing that I can’t do what’s needed. So on Friday, I will be able to take pictures of a made over space, but I will have to bring back all of their belongings. Now tell me, WHAT WILL I HAVE REALLY ACCOMPLISHED? I know that something is better than nothing. I just can’t stop thinking about the main problem. When I look at what other’s are doing in there room, I can’t help but think that maybe if I had more time, I would be able to accomplish the same. Or maybe if I had enough time, I could have gotten more help.
So on Friday when I show you the reveal of my room, know that all of this
will be coming back into the space with nowhere to go….
I’ll be back tomorrow with updates for Day 3
