I’d be lying if I didn’t admit I thought it’d be easy- pillow fluffing, paint selection, placing furnishings so they look right- what could possibly go wrong? A lot!! It’s not fricking easy. It involves much more than I ever, EVER imagined.
I endeavored on my second act as an interior designer just 5-1/2 short years, 1 husband and two kids ago (that certainly didn’t ease things). I thought, “Well, I’m coming out of a career that people don’t understand even after I explain to them what I do (like Chandler from “Friends,”) and going into interior design, school is going to be SO fun!” Not so. It was grueling! I can honestly state it was far more intense than completing my Bachelor of Science in Business, and my Master of Science in Business (completed while working full-time in aforementioned intense job).
Here are some photos of the fruits of my labor. Boards, that you may glance at for 3 seconds that took 30 hours or more to complete.
They did teach us everything though, and that was the idea now, wasn’t it?
