How A Showhome Makeover Changed My Life

This is a true experience from one of our Showhome Furniture Customers:


It was late at night when I was almost in tears that I confessed to my husband that I just needed a break! We had seven kids, were in the middle of renovating our basement and my well was dry. I knew that being a mother to so many children was truly my dream, and so was finishing my basement. At that moment though, my dream just seemed less romantic than I had imagined and a lot harder. My husband listened to me patiently and then agreed to take me away.

After a few phone calls to grandparents the next day our trip was planned. In just two days, my husband, two oldest kids and I were going to go down to Utah for an educational conference. The five younger kids would be watched by my parents. This was a dream come true and I was so grateful for my husband and my parents for helping me get the break I knew I really needed.

The week was wonderful and I came back to my home refreshed and ready to hug each of my babies, wipe their tears, listen to their stories and be their happy mama once more. Truly being a mother is my favorite thing in the world and I was anxious to get home.

It was late when I got home, and to my surprise my home was packed. Two of my sisters, as well as all their kids, were there, along with a few neighborhood kids and more. I was confused and then overwhelmed to tears. In every single room of my house, my home was transformed. Walls were painted, couches replaced, new furniture was everywhere and so were smiling delighted faces. I was floored! Who arranged for all of these miracles to happen?

It was then I was brought downstairs to my junky unfinished basement. I was stunned. New flooring had been laid, drywall had been fixed, stools lined my bar, new chairs and rugs filled the room. Without me even knowing it, my whole house was transformed by the Showhome Furniture crew. Somehow they had heard about my family and came to the rescue. They gathered my family and neighbors and in just one week did months worth of renovations!

That night my house was transformed, but more than that, my heart was transformed. Sometimes as a mother, especially a mother of many children, your time is taken up by so many people you need to take care of that you get tired. You sometimes wish that there was someone there to take care of you. This is not something most mothers expect, and I certainly did not. The fact that so many people cared enough about me to help me with a task so overwhelming and daunting.

My life was forever changed by their love, their attention to detail, and generosity!
