Down And Out Chic

Earlier this year Claire of Bicoastally tipped me off to a project by Christina of Down and Out Chic to redesign a foster care room. I offered to donate a piece to decorate the room and was thrilled that Christina was already familiar with my Etsy shop. She selected a yellow framed yoyo quilt mini.

Christina did such a beautiful job. It was a selfless undertaking where she was given $150 to redo the whole room, and fortunately, so many people and companies offered to help. Donations were made from the art, to the paint on the walls, but most valuable was the donation of Christina’s time, vision and talent, because none of it would have come together without her. The room is meant for parents to meet and spend time with their own children that are in the foster care program. You can see the before pictures and it wasn’t a very comforting or warm space.

To Christina’s redecoration below:

and if you know anything about me, I’m gaga over the chalkboard paint wall. Brilliant! So, please check out her final post about the completed space with plenty more before and after pictures.
