Rolling Out to debut Web-based home improvement show with partner Home Depot

(July 13 2013) The publication Rolling Out has announced that it will debut its new Web-based video series, "Celebrity Refresh" later this summer. The home improvement series showcases a behind-the-scenes look at celebrities as they take on home improvement projects. The Home Depot partnered with Rolling Out on the series, providing furnishings and floral arrangements to complete the projects.

"This show demonstrates how celebrities are just like the rest of us when it comes to home improvement projects," said Munson Steed, Rolling Out publisher and CEO. "We're excited about the launch of the online web series. People will want to tune in to get ideas for their own refresh projects. This is another opportunity for us to educate and inspire through a different medium."

The first celebrity home improvement project features recording artist Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, from the group TLC. Nestled in one of Georgia's most historic neighborhoods, Chilli takes viewers through a renovation on the beautiful home she purchased more than fifteen years ago.

"I had a great experience with Celebrity Refresh," said Chilli. "My backyard is one of my favorite places to relax and entertain during the spring and summer. I love lying out by the pool with my son and his friends, and entertaining friends and family on the back patio for barbecues or cookouts."

Rolling Out's team, along with Chilli and her property manager, Shawn Beasely, assessed the property and came up with a plan to refresh her backyard and pool with bright floral arrangements, tiki lamps, lawn furniture and even a stone waterfall.
