How many of you recognize these ladies….?
You might know them from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, or their newest show:
Renowned interior designers and best friends Tracy Hutson and Tanya McQueen have criss-crossed America in search of rare materials to “up cycle” into new and stunning pieces in their Los Angeles Home Decor shop.
Monday, I had the chance to visit with these great ladies and ask them a few questions about their adventures, what inspires them, and tips for up-cycling pieces to give them new life!
We also heard more about their newest involvement with “Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup“, the nation’s largest annual community involvement program. (Did you know over 3 million volunteer every year and help communities in every state? What an awesome cause!)
You may notice, in the video, one of Jason Messier’s art pieces behind the ladies. He is what is called a “junk artist” and up-cycles garbage giving it new life! In partnership with Glad Black Bag, Jason will take pieces from the cleanup and celebrity donations to be auctioned for the Keep America Beautiful organization. So fun!
