CBS’S “FIX IT & FINISH IT” WITH BOXHILL

Earlier this year, we were busy putting together some fabulous red and white products for our Valentine’s Day sale, and we received the most exciting phone call, ever—CBS’s “Fix It & Finish It” was coming to Tucson, Arizona, and two of our colleagues had been chosen as featured designers.  They were tasked with making over a midtown home, and they needed BOXHILL’s help!  A design show on CBS, a fabulous backyard makeover from Boxhill Design, and Antonio Sabato, Jr.?  Oh, yeah.  We were SO in!
