Old World Inn on TLC's Trading Spaces!

L to R: Frank, Phil, Carter, Randy, Doug, Sharon, Russ, Laura, Faber, and the film crew

(Our apologies to those that have read this message in past newsletters-- we get so many emails asking when this popular episode will re-air, we have included it as a courtesy for those folks.)

As big fans of the show, we were sad to hear that TLC cancelled Trading Spaces after 7 years.

But we re-live all the fun and craziness we had every time we watch the episode.

As a quick recap, back in 2005, In less than 48 hours, our friends Brooke & Jim worked with Trading Spaces designer Doug Wilson and carpenter Faber Dewar to completely transform our Moonlight Sonata room (see "before") into "La Bibilioteca"-- complete with Venetian plaster, custom made side tables (from Beringer wine barrels), and a bedspread made out of an old world map!

<== Here's a BEFORE photo of the SAME ROOM! Since then, we were so inspired by our experiences with Trading Spaces that we set out to remodel every one of our bathrooms-- and do each in only 48 hours! We've also worked similar magic on many of our rooms, adding Venetian plaster or wonderful new wall treatments to our Chocolat, Night in Paris, La Boheme, and Allegria rooms. We also added a spa room on the back of the property, for couples massages. We're now in the process of updating our back patio area, adding a wine barrel fountain and a fire pit. Join us, perhaps for the last time, this Tuesday, June 19, at 3 or 4 PM on the TLC network to relive our fun on Trading Spaces! (Please check your local listings for exact time and channel)
