First Lady Melania Trump Gives the White House a Makeover
First Lady Melania Trump Gives the White House a Makeover
BY DARLENE SUPERVILLE / AP SEPTEMBER 17, 2019

(WASHINGTON) — She’s done a lot with the place.

Like anyone who has ever spruced up their home, Melania Trump will have a few new touches to showcase Friday when guests visit the White House for only the second state dinner of the Trump presidency.

There’s refreshed wall fabric in the Red Room, repurposed draperies in the Green Room and restored furniture in the Blue Room. And those are just some of the home improvement projects the first lady has overseen to keep the well-trod public rooms at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. looking their museum-quality best.

Some of the projects were long overdue. Sunlight streaming into the Red Room had left some of the wall fabric “so faded it was almost pink,” said Stewart McLaurin, president of the White House Historical Association, which helps finance upkeep of some rooms in the 132-room mansion. First lady Jacqueline Kennedy founded the private, nonprofit organization in 1961.

“Those rooms should always look their very best and it was just very faded and really, really needed to be done,” McLaurin said.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his wife, Jenny, and guests for Friday’s three-course dinner in their honor should have an opportunity to check out the spiffed-up public rooms.

In her role as caretaker, the first lady — whoever she is — meets regularly with the chief usher, the head curator and other White House staff to figure out what improvements should top the to-do list.

Mrs. Trump, who keeps a relatively low profile as first lady, has put her interest in history to use overseeing the restoration projects.

“Our family is grateful to live in this true symbol of our nation’s history, but we are even more honored to play a part in restoring and enhancing our country’s sacred landmark,” she said at a May reception


ME: What can I add? She is a wonderful first lady doing a great job. Few first ladies have worked wonders with the White House.

After 8 years of obama, I’m glad we finally have an intelligent and attractive First Lady back in Washington.

The Trump family has brought some class back to the WH.

Melania has style. Some people don't like that, some do. But she's as good a front that the White House has ever seen, and I like her taste too.

Did you have to start a new thread because I triggered you in your last one? By the way, you never answered the question, what branch and how long did you actually serve? I ask only because you said that you were serving in the military while the best part of me ran down my momma's leg (btw, talking about family isn't allowed, you could be reported for that), and I'd like to know when you served (if ever). Me? U.S. Navy from 1982 until 2002 when I retired.

BTW, everyone else noticed that you left your last thread when I triggered you in post 28. It's up to over 65 posts now.
Thank you for your service.

All of the garbage that the wookie did needs to be thrown out. I hope Melania has workers scraping the shitstains left by shitstain obama off. That garden big wookie put in should be dug up and plowed under.

If I remember correctly, they found high amounts of lead and other heavy metals in her garden, and had to shut it down.

Given that she's not even living in the White House, this is a big surprise.

Oh, I forgot. Computer-illiteracy is a horrible thing. Let me help you out with a story that has easy to use clickable links...

"When Michelle Obama created an organic vegetable garden on the White House lawn earlier this year, the move was greeted with positive headlines and excitement among the food advocacy community. Here, we thought, was a First Lady who understood the importance of locally grown, whole and organic foods in her family’s diet.

Unfortunately, something happened on the way to the realization of the First Lady’s good intentions. Recently the National Park Service discovered that the White House lawn, where the garden was planted, contains highly elevated levels of lead — 93 parts per million. It’s enough lead for anyone planning to have children pick vegetables in that garden or eat produce from it to reconsider their plans: lead is highly toxic to children’s developing organs and brain functions — however, it’s below the 400 ppm the EPA suggests is a threat to human health."

So, it was not her garden, but in the whole lawn where she choose to make the garden.

This is why I ask for links, people like you always lie about what really happened.

Not a surprise to me. Being an immigrant, she truly loves this country. She's also actually proud of her country since she immigrated here, not for "the first time in my life", like someone else whose name I won't mention.

How is a lawn where someone chooses to make a garden, not a "garden"? You liberals are so obtuse sometimes.
