Marriott Adopts Room at Ronald McDonald House

train funOf course, I can’t resist stopping in to visit the Train Station in the dining room, to see someone having a little fun with it on my way to meet the new room adopters!

Old room      Marriott team before the remodel!        My partner, Karen And I had so much fun working with the zany and awesome crew from four local Courtyard by Marriott Hotels – they swept in and re-did one of the older rooms at the East House, turning it into an undersea fantasy for RMHC families.  They started by scoping it out with us one day, and then, like I Dream of Jeannie, they got busy and quickly transformed the whole space, even adding a ceiling fan, and doing all the remodel work themselves.  everything at onceYes, we were actually painting while they ironed curtains, installed the lighting and new blinds, and put in a brand new carpet.  And yes, they actually showed up in their nice dress clothes, and never got a drop of paint on them.Ribbon cuttingThey threw a big party and ribbon-cutting ceremony, and fit 28 people into the rather small space, to celebrate.

The completed room is full of nice details –they had fun shopping... they had fun shopping – and we had fun adding sweet touches, like the painted sunken treasure toy chest, which began life as plain, white and waiting for paint.
