Budget Blinds Partners with Designing Spaces, Airing on Lifetime Television, to Help Transform the Home of a Family in Need
A Grandmother and Her Four Grandchildren Receive a Home Makeover of a Lifetime
Orange, CA (PRWEB) April 02, 2013 - Budget Blinds – the leading window coverings franchise in the nation – recently partnered with the Lifetime channel’s popular home improvement show Designing Spaces™ to help renovate the home of a family in need. The show travels all over the country redefining and redesigning spaces by incorporating decorating trends, do-it-yourself projects, and step by step home improvements. The Designing Spaces episode featuring Budget Blinds will air on Lifetime television on Thursday, April 4th at 7:30am EST/PST as part of a three episode “Spaces of Hope” segment.
When the Broward County Sheriff’s Office found Florida resident Joy Stewart and her four grandchildren living in a run-down home with little food, no heat, no running water and no electricity, they immediately called on the community for help. Joy had rescued her four young grandchildren from a local shelter after they had been abandoned by their mother. Since then, she has struggled to keep the family afloat due to very limited financial resources.
Budget Blinds was honored to be among those who answered the call for help. Working closely with the dream team at Designing Spaces, Budget Blinds installed cordless honeycomb shades throughout the home. Cordless honeycomb shades were the ideal window coverings solution since they are kid-safe and provide a layer of insulation to help keep the home warm in winter, thus lowering the Stewart family’s heating expenses.
The honeycomb shades were made possible through a generous donation from Budget Blinds' trusted manufacturing partner Custom Brands Group, and by the hard measuring and installation work done by Budget Blinds franchisees and design experts Connie Bolton and Tom Kay.
“Since Joy has limited financial resources along with four grandchildren living in the home, it was important that we used child-friendly and energy efficient window coverings for this project,” said Connie Bolton. “A beautiful set of cordless honeycomb shades were the perfect solution. All of us at Budget Blinds are so proud to have been a part of making a difference in the Stewart family’s lives.”
The transformation of the Stewart family home on Designing Spaces - Spaces of Hope will span 3 episodes. The first airs April 4th, the second featuring Budget Blinds airs April 11th, and the last episode featuring the big reveal airs April 18th. They will all air on the Lifetime channel at 7:30am EST/PST. Be sure to tune in to watch Budget Blinds, Designing Spaces and others give Joy Stewart and her family a home makeover of a lifetime!
