Shea McGee Dream Home Makeover
Shea and her husband Syd have a new series, Dream Home Makeover, which premiered on Netflix on October 16, 2020. In the series, the couple tackles various home renovation projects — from fancy basement theaters to breathtaking kitchens — while also juggling life at home.
During an exclusive interview with US Weekly Shea said; “We really tried to incorporate the visuals that you see on our Instagram page into the show so it’s all very naturally lit, bright and airy spaces. Plus, we mix in our family relationship dynamics with business.”
She added that at the time they were filming they were also able to design their own home as at the time they were living in rentals as they had sold their first home.
“When we started filming, [creating our home] was a huge part of our lives. We were about to start our business, we sold our very first home and we had been living in rentals while we designed everyone else’s homes. So this was a full circle moment for us to be able to design our own. It took a lot of attention, so it felt very natural to have that be part of the show.”
Shea McGee Teeth
Shea revealed that she has veneers. She said she has a long history of trying to straighten her teeth as she had chipped two of his teeth while in high school and his dentist just reshaped them but they were still crooked and uneven.
“I tried to pull them down and straighten things out with Invisalign three times. When that didn’t do the job, I tried braces and it still didn’t work, so I gave up. A few months ago my front tooth chipped slightly so my dentist just shortened everything up for me and my teeth kept getting filed shorter and shorter and I was self-conscious about one side of my mouth and would always try to smile in a way that hid it. I finally just realized that veneers were the right move for me, so I flew to Dr. Harris in Arizona and it has truly been the best experience!”
