So here are the Before and Afters of "Project Makeover"!
|Here we have my son , 16, looking fabulous in the Treatment/Infusion Room Before the Makeover|
|"The Corner"...this is to the right of the pic above..there's that darned pole again on the right!|
|Here is one of our buddies, 9, propped up against the wall in the 'Green Chair of Infamy':)|
|Here she is again, Rocking the Pink Hat and Hello Kitty shirt! She's too adorable for only one pic!|
Another sad wall....
|The nurses station.|
Let's get on with it!
OK! Now for the fun part! I consulted with local Prescott Interior Designer Suzie Franks who was kind enough to offer her much needed expertise...and here is the color combos she suggested...
Here it is!! Up and Running!
|Here's the After!! The yellow made it so bright and cheery!|
|Turning over a new leaf:)|
Here is that same corner. I don't have the best pic here, I'll take another when we're back down. Notice the complete lack of Christmas paraphanelia, Halloween decorations from the early 90's and file cabinets that hadn't been opened in over 9 years...they all just mysteriously 'disappeared'! We added a fun Ikea leaf to the walls and kept with a 'bird theme'. You'll notice the TV center...it came from our bonus room, the boys painted it black and covered the hole in the floor that was made by the demise of the old cabinet:)
So here are some close ups of the All New Artwork!
|Collage and mixed media...the "Collage Collage" if you will..|
The New Nurses Area
|Bright, cheery and crisp!|
|More Mixed Media Owls!|
|Here it was before:)|
The Amazing Crew!!
|Here's everyone with Ronnie at the Ronald Mc Donald House Charities who graciously hooked us up with lodging and even Dinner one night!|
|Here's my other boy , 18, working prepping a nursing station.|
|Here's my adorable neice, 16, laying down the miles of brown paper we used to keep our footprints off the carpet:)|
|Here are our girls passed out on the couch at the Mc Donald's House Apartment after a full day of painting.|
But that's only one room!
I know, I know...but that's enough for one blog! I'll post the other three rooms as they become finished. We got all of the rooms cleaned, prepped, painted and we replaced any damaged ceiling tiles and the 'kick board' around the bottom of the room. There is at least one big piece of artwork in each room and I'll post them as they become finished!
Thanks again to all of you who contributed to this project and most of all, our love and our thanks to Dr. Cohen and his staff!
