Hi guys! This is my third post today so I hope you’re not tired of me yet!
Today I want and NEED to talk about my room for Room Service Atlanta. You may remember my post where I showed you guys my room
Well, come to find out, that was not my room. This is my room
(ignore my child in the picture!)
The install for this room takes place all next week. And to just now be finding out this information really left me overwhelmed. I have cried 4 times today. It wouldn’t be right to not be honest with you guys and say that I didn’t want to back away from the project and refund all donations received. But you know what? I have friends and family that really believe in me. I am determined to do whatever I can to the best of my ability to make this space better for this family. I read a quote today from twitter that said
“The talent of success is nothing more than doing what you can do well and doing well whatever you do” ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
This is nothing short of the truth!
And let me say for the record, I’m not overwhelmed because of the space itself (not completely!). I’m overwhelmed because for weeks I have thought and planned a space that didn’t even belong to me, but to someone else. I have a few days to figure out a totally different route for this space. I have enlisted the help of a great designer friend and DIY genius, April Denise. We are coming up with plans for the space but we need more help. This room needs A LOT of storage
like, I;’m not even kidding about the storage needs
I know that I have already asked for donations (and believe me, I’m beyond appreciative for the donations I received!), but I really need a little more help. Any amount would be wonderful and seriously appreciated. $1, $5, $30…Anything, honestly! My major concern right now is storage which I plan to bring in under bed storage containers. I may also have to purchase a chest of drawers or two and I doubt I will be able to find them last minute at a thrift store. I have a lot to figure out for this space, but with your help, I know it will be a success! Also, let me say that I have been using my own money too! I don’t want anyone to think that I’m trying not to come out of pocket much. It is just taking A LOT!
Thank You so much for your support!
