Village Elementary School Entry
Mrs. Noble wanted to give the entry a welcoming and unified feeling for the students, staff and visitors.
Goals: Replace 5 chairs, paint walls and island, add greens, shelving, accessories and rearrange and add wall hangings.
The shelving provided a functional area to store small toys in the bins and books for visiting children. Small accessory touches such as a photo of the staff placed on the shelf and a jar of local seashells provide a homy feel to a school environment.
Added stools between chairs for additional seating for the little ones who come in with their parents.
Added an additional chair and large tree to bring the outside in. Very nice and inexpensive way to warm up a large area.
Project took three weeks and we spent $1000 on material and goods. Being a high traffic area, I made sure that all furniture was very durable and treated the fabric for wear. Furniture was bought at Target and Home Goods. Paint by Benjamin Moore.
“I approached Denise, a parent of two students at Village Elementary School, at the end of last school year to assist me. I had visited her website and knew she had the talent to assist me with my vision. I desired Village Elementary’s office area to be a warmer more welcoming environment and I had a fixed budget to work with. I explained to Denise what I was looking for and she did all the designing and shopping for me. I am so appreciative that Denise gifted her time to us at Village. As I enter the building each day I have the look and feel I was searching for. Denise is a joy to work with!”
