Cottage Makeover

The wonderful members of the Austin, Texas Chapter of The International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IAHSP) spent three days making over one of our Group Home cottages. The flooring and furniture in this cottage had seen a lot of wear and tear over the years, so this makeover was really needed.

The home stagers worked on the front yard, improving the landscaping and adding new seating to the outside patio. The walls were repainted and new flooring went in the living rooms. Old, worn chairs and sofas were replaced by new and comfortable pieces. The dining room table was given a face lift through a custom paint job. The kitchen cabinets were repainted and the counter tops were refinished. Creative art personalizes the space and creates an atmosphere of fun.

We are so appreciative of the hard work and thoughtfulness that went into this makeover! It is clear that these volunteers thought about our girls and how they would use and enjoy the space. We know our girls and staff will love living here and taking care of their cute cottage!

The Settlement Home was selected by the Austin Chapter of IAHSP as the beneficiary of World Wide Staging Service Week, where professional stagers use their skills, talents and personal resources to give back to the community.
