Ottawa Extreme Makeover – Kindness Edition

I am thrilled to be taking part in Extreme Makeover – Kindness Edition.  This initiative was put together by the Yummy Mummy Club to coincide with their Winterlude Getaway and they have partnered up with the United Way.  The lucky recipient is the Good Companions Center on Albert Street in Ottawa.

Sonya Kinkade of Sonya Kinkade Design was asked to head up this makeover and she in turn asked some fellow decorators to give her a hand.

Here we are at one of our meetings to discuss paint colours, layout and furniture options.  And the most important and time consuming piece of the puzzle, asking for donations of product, labour and time.

So we’ll be busy, busy little bees getting all the items in place for the BIG REVEAL happening on Saturday.
