Stagg Design Refugee Project: the after

July 9, 2019

The newly remodeled living room

It’s reveal day! We’re taking you inside our Stagg Design Refugee Project finished product, and sharing how the whole thing came together. Before we dive into images, please watch this video. It’s so dear to our hearts and our videographer, Trevor, did such a beautiful job capturing the project.h

I’ve watched it a dozen times and every I’m in tears.

A quick recap (you can see the before and read about how the project came to be HERE.) Our design firm wanted to start an annual service project and for our first, we found a sweet refugee family with some special needs.

We cut the ribbon and their reactions were so priceless. So let’s get to it! The photos of the before and after!

The living room got a complete overhaul. New paint, rug, furniture, decor, etc. I still can’t believe the transformation!

The kids room was a real design challenge. It’s small, and I felt really strongly that the children needed somewhere to play. I first thought bunk beds, but it isn’t safe for Alex. I came up with a trundle and I think it’s the perfect solution!

We got them some fresh, clean toys, new bedding, a swing for Alex made for children with autism, and more. It’s such a sweet bedroom perfect for sleep and play. As a mom of small children, this was a huge priority for me!

The laundry and dining area was a smaller transformation but packed a big punch. Walker Edison donated so much furniture– including a new dining set. And the owner of a business in San Antonio, Denise Sanchez, donated the funds for the washer and dryer.


Stagg Design, Walker Edison, Benjamin Moore of Salt Lake City. Intellibed, Home Depot, RC Willey, Merril Hoge, Denise Sanchez, Homewerks of San Antonio, Cathy Cardenas, Angie Harrington, and so many other community members who raised funds and donated items.

This project has changed our hearts and we are so grateful for the opportunity to serve others.
