I am loving it.

I wish I could use the more casual expression of ‘I am loving it’ but McDonald’s has the trademark on that one!… Nevertheless, I AM loving this McDonald’s in historic Chatham Heights near Stafford and Fredericksburg, VA.

Because this particular McDonald’s was centrally located to so many local historic sites- including Chatham Manor, Fredericksburg and George Washington’s childhood home, it seemed the logical decor for this restaurant would highlight the region’s historical heritage.

Enjoy these great before, during, and after photos!

A tree seemed to be a great solution to hide the thermostat!

The lettering was the final touch- pulling the whole theme together.

The wall as you immediately came in showcased the scenic Rappahannock River nearby.

Last, the back corner of the dining area got a major makeover by removing an old light fixture and thus making my ‘canvas’ larger.

I really enjoyed my days working there- a shout out to Ashley and all the friendly staff. I will really miss my 3pm french fry breaks and all the McCafes!
