I have been dying to share with you all that has happened in the past several months. In late summer of last year I was asked to join the team of Nashville Flipped, a TV show that will air on the DIY network starting this Wednesday!
The show was created to follow, builder and house flipper, Troy Shafer, as he finds, restores, and ultimately saves old, neglected homes from being torn down.
The houses we worked on for the first season were in and around Nashville and varied in age and style, but all were in disrepair and needed a lot of love to return to their former glory. Each 30 minute episode follows our steps as we learn about a home’s history and then work quickly and thoughtfully to renovate it and get it on the market to sell.
Though the months we filmed were hectic, to say the least, I loved my “second job!” To keep my first love, my interior design business on track, my team, Brooke, Amy, and Rachel worked so hard, and I had lots of early morning and late nights playing catch up.
But the people on the crew were wonderful to work with, and I made great friends while learning all about the entertainment industry. Of course, I knew absolutely nothing about the process of filming a TV show or being on camera. But when the opportunity fell into my lap, I was excited to take the leap and learn. It was so much fun to do what I love on another platform, sharing decorating ideas and tips while working on a tight budget and a tight timeline.
I’ll be writing about my experience on each episode just after it airs to give a behind the scenes look at what we did and how we made it happen. So stay tuned for more details, and please tune in (or set your DVR!) this Wednesday night, April 13th at 9pm central to watch our first two episodes!
