LMDS Project: Creating a French Country Kitchen on a Budget
 
05:16
This was my own personal labor of love! My condo kitchen in Duxbury, Massachusetts was small and totally outdated - complete with knotty pine cabinets and mis-matched appliances. I had the opportunity to do a trade deal with a local magazine where I would receive new appliances, so that big part was taken care of. Aside from labor - aka sweat equity - my financial outlay was less than $500.00. Together with a very good friend, we spent several months of Sunday afternoons making over the little kitchen into a beautiful and functional. In this video, I go through the entire process! - Design (and labor!) by Linda Merrill - After photography by Michael J.

Interior design projects are big investments and many fear making commitments because they can't see what it's all going to look like. In this video, I share my unique method of "showing" my designs to my clients so they can fully "see" what it's going to look like. My Artistic 3D Renderings are a unique blend of traditional CAD (Computer Aided Designs) methods combined with the addition of images of real furnishings and finishes to make for a truly realistic look. Take a look, follow my page, follow my blog and let me know if you have any questions.
