Curb Appeal: The Block
We totally made the cut. We are going to be on Season 2 of Curb Appeal: The Block! It's the Atlanta version of HGTV's Curb Appeal. And while I know that lots of vintage-minded people are dubious about the makeovers that HGTV does, we think this is going to be wonderful. The designer who does the Atlanta episodes is named John Gidding and he is really awesome. Also, we get $20,000 (aaah!) worth of work done to the outside of our house! And for the record, we think that doesn't include most of the labor on the project, which is mostly covered by HGTV staff. We mentioned in our audition tape that we love Mid-Century Modern design, so even though our brick will get painted, which we have reservations about, we are confident that the overall design will be really modern and awesome. I'm not sure yet how soon this is happening, since I just got the call this afternoon that we were picked, but I'll keep everyone posted. We are so incredibly excited, and feel like we won the lottery. We would never in a million years have been able to pay that much money to fix up the outside of our house. We would have had wonkey stoop, the cracked driveway, and the dried blood color siding for years and years to come... Yay!
