Redesigned, by Rachael Ray!

8 Feb

It’s 6:15am on a frigid (23!) Monday morning, and a film crew from the Rachael Ray show has just arrived at my apartment.

Why, you ask?!?

Well, after seeing this article about my itty, bitty apartment in the NY Post, they contacted me… came to see my apartment… and ultimately decided to give me the ultimate NY gift… an apartment makeover!


So, I have NO idea what they’re going to do to the place, but after we do some filming this morning, pack everything up and cart it down to a van waiting outside… they’re going to send me off to work (yeah, I’m sure it’ll be SUPER easy to stay focused today…), and then when I get home later tonight it’ll be a whole new glorious apartment!

Keep your fingers crossed that they give me some kick-ass beer storage system… and I’ll be sure to post pix of the re-do once it’s done!  Meanwhile… if you’re curious, here are some ‘before’ pix to give you an idea of what they’re going to be working with today!

    This is so freaking exciting. I cannot WAIT to see what they do. Do you know when they’ll show it on TV?

      I’m dying for it to be tonight already so I can see it!!! They’re thinking it might air in about 2 weeks… I’ll let you know for sure 🙂

    Do you have a rug on your ceiling?

      I stapled a tapestry up to the underside of the loft bed… so that I wouldn’t have to sit there & stare up at the underside of a mattress and some wooden slats! 🙂

    I think all of your kitchen gadgets are a riot, considering you don’t really have much of a kitchen.

    You did a pretty sick job all by yourself!
