Lights! Camera! Action!

Chic Chateau opened to much fanfare...complete with press coverage from The News & Record and The Rhino Times, and live radio & television spots on the morning newscasts! Our thanks to Shannon Smith & her team from Fox 8 News; WFMY News 2; to Adrianne Flores of the News 14 Carolina; and the awesome live radio broadcast from WMAG & Lora Sonster for helping us to make The Chic Chateau a success!

Camera men running cables and getting ready!

Looking good at 5:30 AM!

Gina Alem, SSI, on camera...."Didn't you just say that?"

SSI's Melinda Dickey waiting for her turn on camera!

Where else ......would you see a kitchen table fabricated out of an old door...complete with a base made from a scrap piece of scaffolding & topped with a piece of glass??? ....or a formal foyer mirror hung on an old door, complete with peeling paint?.... or lamp made from game pieces? .... an old factory cart used as a cocktail table? How about a recycled lab table that's been faux painted to be used as a study desk?
Why...that would be at The Chic Chateau...Greensboro's first Charity Showhouse Tour which was furnished and accessorized using recycled items from thrift stores, consignment shops, salvage yards and antique stores! Chic Chateau is now closed but you can enjoy some pictures of this great event and house in the frames below!
