Project Description

Welcome Home!

Habitat for Humanity-DeKalb welcomed a new family to their home on Ravenwood Lane in DeKalb County. The family was blessed with an extra special gift of being chosen for THE GMC Longest Yard Sale Challenge. We were very thankful to be the chosen affiliate this year for the challenge as well. A group of talented and thrifty designers decorated the entire home with found yard sale treasures using ideas garnered from interviewing the family. Their efforts were truly amazing!
