Courtney Gibney and Michael Buckley run a skateboard and apparel business out of their home, however, their home office is more of an all-purpose store room without clear direction.
Host Lee Snijders visits this busy couple and finds that not only is storage a big problem, but the room needs to be clearly defined as well. Getting their skateboarding inventory off the floor and on shelves will be a priority. Gibney is a painter and they both play the guitar so they want to have space to be creative as well as work. Privacy is an issue so they both want better curtains to cover their windows.
- The walls are kept the existing electric blue color. Blocks of black paint create backgrounds behind items used for wall art.
The desk and tabletop are trimmed out with iron-on veneer to hide the rough edges. Braces support the middle of the long desktop so it doesn't bow. Upholstered cushions and pillows give comfort to the seating area. Matching table lamps give much-needed task lighting.
