Beads?!?!? What Do We Do After Mardi Gras?

Oak Cliff does Mardi Gras right! Big party for the big people. A little exercise at the 5k (and now 10k too). Then a family friendly parade to wrap it up. I love this weekend. Every year. And every year I wonder, “what do I do with all these beads?” Are you in the same predicament?  Perhaps you have children, but maybe there are just lumps of beads where your children used to be. Is your neck sore from all the swag you scored? Did your float order a few too many baubles?
We are here to help. Starting today you can drop off beads and Team Jennisto will donate them to local non-profits for recycling. We have 4 locations to make unloading your beads as easy as a slice from Norma’s.

Final Walkthrough on Windomere

Today we walk through the duplex on last time. This is our first post in a few weeks, so the kitchen will look radically different. The floors look wonderful. And the bathrooms are complete. This most recent week has been pretty intense, as we chased down details. Turns out it’s tough to get contractors to come back to take care of the little things they forgot to do, or that have to be done at the very end. But Val is all over them. And I have been to home improvement stores more times than I can count this week.
We still have a handful of things to complete. Oh, and I think the other side of the duplex got jealous, because it sprung a leak and now that bathroom has to have an emergency do-over. Par for the course.
Thanks for going along on the ride with me and Val. Now it’s time to find the duplex a happy tenant.


Last Look Before the Holidays

As we wind down 2016, we are also coming the the final pieces and parts on the Windomere duplex renovation.  Today in the video, we show off the mostly complete interior paint. Exterior will be done by Saturday. The tile is still an issue, as the new shipment didn’t match what was already on the floor. And, last night, we sprung 5 leaks in the pipes after the hard freeze this week. Thank goodness Raul’s guys were able to come today to repair those. We’re almost there.
Wishing you a restful holiday.

Hooray Counter, Boo Tile

Welcome to another Wednesday at Windomere update. The kitchen counters were installed today and they look gorgeous. They are back under protective coating, but you can take a peek in the video here. On a frustrating note, the tile guy did not use spacers for the bathroom floor tile. It has to be ripped up and redone. Boo. Since that tile can’t even get delivered until Dec 21. Also, he messed up the shower tile. So what was looking like progress got a bit stalled today. But it’s important that it get done right.

Putting it Back Together

Yes, it’s Thursday, but that’s how it goes sometimes on Wednesdays at Windomere. The delay was due to the floor stain and pre-coat that had to get on quickly. It’s dry enough to walk on today as Val shows you in this video. Things are starting to come together.


Thinking About all Things Home & Festive

This week at JenniSto we are getting excited about the holidays and thinking about all things home & festive. We thought we’d let you in to see our trees and a few of our client’s trees.

Here is Jenni’s tree, check out the amazing tree topper made by a dear friend.

With toddlers into everything and space at a premium Emily goes for a minimalist “tree.”

Doesn’t  Gaby’s tree look so warm and festive?

Gaby’s son, Beckett, made this tree for their dining room.

Meanwhile, here is the Christmas display at her showroom.

Just loving client Christy’s pup next to her beautiful tree.

Marcus and James have trees inside and outside of their home, adorned by inflatables, naturally.

Now that we’ve shared some of our favorite trees with you, we’d love to see yours!
