Oh my gosh what a crazy day! It all started at five something when I dragged my butt out of bed and sat in rush hour traffic to get town to 299 Queen Street West to tape a live episode of The Marilyn Denis Show on CTV. It was a busy day at that Bell Media hub with celebrities coming and going in black SUV’s with drivers. I’m sure you’ll see lots of that on The Marilyn Show and E Talk in the coming days. The segment went off without a hitch and Marilyn and her producers were kind enough to feature Penney & Company , so I gave a little guided tour! The first segment is of Penney & Company and the ‘BEFORE’ living room in need of some ‘pulling together’. Check it out!
I decided to wear summery shorts, Sperry’s and a blue/white gingham shirt. But I forgot gingham is a no-no on camera (it gets all fuzzy and crazy on your tv) so I had to borrow Ben Mulroney’s shirt from upstairs at E Talk! Oh my gosh – how crazy is that?! So a grey solid shirt it was! Good thing it fit…
Then it was on to the commercial-length makeover and ta-da! Check out some of the results here.
By injecting some much needed colour and some fun DIY projects, this boring basic living room was transformed and now feels fun, fresh and ready for family living.
And when it was all over? We watched a few more celebrities from the sidelines, packed up my little car with lots of pillows, lamps and accessories and I came right back to the shop and sold a bit of vintage jewelry. I told you it was a crazy day.
Now I want to go have a nap.
UPDATE! They’ve added a fun behind the scenes video of me transforming the set on the commercial break. TV is fast-paced craziness I tell ya!
Check it out here.
And here are the projects – BEFORE and AFTER!
