For the third time, Budget Blinds® is honored to participate with award-winning Designing Spaces’ Military Makeover airing on Lifetime Television®, helping to make life better for a deserving veteran and his family. The long, hot Florida summer is culminating in a newly renovated home for Marine Lance Corporal Michael Adams, his wife, Britiany, and daughters, eight-year old Nevaeh and three-year-old Cecelia.

Lance Corporal Michael Adams had served two years in the Marines when, on deployment to Iraq in 2005, his vehicle ran over a double-stack anti-tank mine, resulting in multiple injuries to his left ankle and wrist, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and PTSD.

Giving back to our active military and veterans is close to the “corporate heart” of Budget Blinds, and partnering with Designing Spaces’ Military Makeover  is a way to say a very tangible “thank you.” This special mini-series is dedicated to giving back to members of the military and their families, involving seasoned expert decorators and designers, landscapers, neighbors and volunteers, and Budget Blinds.

“We were thrilled to participate in Military Makeover for the third time,” said Tracy Christman, Vice President of Vendor Alliance at Budget Blinds. “Not only does Budget Blinds have a long-standing history and commitment to supporting our veterans, but also because one of Budget Blinds’ goals is to help educate consumers on products, options, and features to keep homes with children safe, while still enjoying beautiful window coverings.”

Pam Shaw, franchise owner of Budget Blinds Serving the South Orlando Area and her team outfitted the entire home with beautiful custom window treatments in colors and styles to suit every room, as well as a large sliding glass door, French doors and a unique sidelight to the front door that required innovative solutions that you can see as the series unfolds.
