I had the pleasure of working for Home Made Simple on OWN as
art director for 5 episodes. There were two teams on the season and I took over Team B when the original art director left mid-season. Team A was run by my great friend and colleague, Leatha Wampler. Each episode my team would prepare the projects called out by the on-camera designer and work with the cast and the on-camera carpenter, to complete each task. My second episode was with Kenneth (Ken) Wingard and David Leon for a home in Los Angeles. The project was to transform a living room and dining room and we nailed it.
I found out that, like myself, Ken loves to take on a ton of projects. We renovated a vintage hi fi console, created lighted wall art from chandelier medallions, widened existing crown molding the easy way, created beautiful bookshelves & a custom table, installed lighting, installed curtains with custom finials, installed new furniture, and painted both rooms all for a reasonable budget of both time and money.
