Been missing your Queer Eye re-caps? Don’t worry – we’re back with another makeover (and inspiring story) from Season 5. This week, I’m sharing a young activist who’s fighting climate change – and her sustainable home makeover.
Keep coming back each week for an inside look at how all the transformations happened and how to create the makeovers we gave to the heroes in your own space.
We meet Abby Leedy in Episode 5- “The Anxious Activist”. (Spoilers ahead – you know the drill!) Abby is an 18-year-old working for the Sunrise Movement, an organization working to stop climate change. And she doesn’t just work there- she eats, sleeps, and breathes it – and lives in a house with her co-workers! But while she’s totally focused on her activism, Abby is forgetting the most important thing – taking care of herself.
The Fab Five step in to give her home (and wardrobe) an update that retains a youthful spirit – and show her that sustainability and self-care can go hand in hand.
For this makeover, we transformed Abby’s home into an ideal spot for her to unwind, spend quality time with her housemates – and leave work behind. To keep things eco-friendly, almost all the products used in this makeover were sourced from a local vintage retailer. Thus, we’ve included a number of sustainable and recycled products in our round-up.
Keep scrolling to see the results of Abby’s home makeover, along with all the shoppable products for you to bring the look home.
And if you missed any of our previous makeovers, be sure to check out Nate, Jennifer, Noah, Rahanna, Kevin, and Tyreek from Season 5; Deanna, Kenny, Wanda, Kathi, Matt, and Wesley from Season 4; and Rob, Jess, Robert and Jody from Season 3. We’ve also pulled together all the products from every makeover HERE.
