Dream Room Project is Back!!

Some of you may remember Designers Unlimited's dream room makeover project - last year we redesigned a room for Kendall, a young girl with
Craniopharyngioma, an invasive benign brain tumour.

We're ready to do it again - this year's room is being done for Sarah Valade, an 11 year old girl with Central Nervous System Vasculitis (CNSV), an inflammation of the the blood vessels in the brain and spine.

We've started our planning and so far we have donations lined up from Home Depot and Timmins Decorating Centre, as well as a couple of local residents.

I absolutely love doing our dream room projects - if we can help make a sick child feel even the tiniest bit better, the work is worth it.

Here are a couple of before shots of her room and closet:

We're looking forward to putting together a wonderful new bedroom for Sarah!

What an awesome project idea!! Sort of like your own version of Make A Wish :-) I'm sure Sarah will feel more than a tiny bit better when she sees the bedroom that you create for her :-)

Have fun with the project -- looking forward to seeing pics when you're done :-)

What a wonderful project!

Thank you for your comment on my front door! I do think the house is too light to leave the white sidelights, but I will try painting the door first and see how it looks. I'm not looking to do more work for myself, but I do want it to look good!

I saw your article in the Times as I like to keep up with what's going on in my hometown. I now live in Whitehorse, Yukon and used to go to school with a Kim Valade. I'm wondering if she might be Sarah's mom. I'd love to get in touch!

Yes, Sarah's mom is Kim. If you send me your email address I can pass it on to Kim for you!
