Monday Inspiration: Gray Cabinets


I've been gathering a lot of inspiration for a new design project that's underway. I did a bit of online searching this weekend and these gray cabinets are what I have in mind for this project. I'm normally drawn to light colored cabinets but I'm really into these darker tones with white walls.

House Remodel: Before and After

Hey there. Today I'd like to share with you a recent project that I was able to be apart of. This beautiful thirty year old house has gone through a major overhaul inside and out. Now it looks practically like a new construction home with all of the updates! 
  
Take a look at all of the before and after photos to see how gorgeous this house remodel turned out. 


First up, they painted the brick exterior (which really made the whole house look instantly updated), added wooden shutters, installed taller front doors, started fresh with all of the landscape, added entry lanterns, and slate for the front porch. 



Heading inside the front foyer where the staircase was revamped with wooden treads and darker stain. Much better than the carpet.


We kept the living room furniture overall neutral mixed with dark antique furniture they already owned. We added a beautiful muted green Oushak rug, accessories, and art to infuse some color in the space.




They enclosed a doorway in the dining room for more wall space to the connecting office room.


The kitchen is now a breath of fresh air with light cabinets and counter tops. The island now has closed storage on the ends and a new counter top shape that works so much better for the family's main gathering area.


The kitchen bar was updated with decorative sconces and molding. They enclosed the bar opening with additional storage on the opposite side and changed the counter top shape and overhang. 


Moving to the master bath, they refaced and painted the vanity and linen cabinet, added new counter tops, updated faucets, hardware, mirrors, lighting, and tub. 



Not to mention that all of the interior walls were repainted a neutral beige color and detailed crown molding was added throughout the entire 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath house.



Lastly, the back porch off the kitchen and large dining area showcases a relaxing sitting area that overlooks the colorful flowers and lush back yard. The slate flooring was a great addition.



What a refreshing transformation! I hope you enjoyed it.

Inspiration: Porch Swings

Since summer is almost here that means we will be spending a lot more time relaxing outdoors. Today I thought I would share some of my favorite porch swing inspiration ideas.



I'm also in need of a new back porch swing since the wooden one we've had for five years finally bit the dust. You may remember seeing it from last years spring porch makeover








Enjoy the rest of your week!

Painted Upholstered Chair


Today I wanted to share with you a french chair makeover that I worked on this past week. I originally planned on reupholstering this chair but then decided to give painted upholstery a try instead. I'm so glad I did because I didn't have much invested in this thrifty chair. 

It makes a great addition in our foyer. 



So here's how it looked when I bought it.



Not awful but pink definitely doesn't coordinate with our decor.

Wow, what a difference!  I'm very pleased how it turned out.




Here's a close up shot.




To paint this chair I used two 8 oz cans of chalk paint and two 8 oz bottles of fabric medium mixed together. The chair fabric was super easy to paint. I ended up doing 2 coats with several extra strokes here and there for more coverage. The paint went on and covered really well. The fabric ended up feeling a little like leather once finished.




What do you think? Would you ever paint upholstery?

Spring Dining Room


I just wanted to share with you a little spring decor that I added in our dining room this past week. I found the large birds nests at World Market last year and just knew they would be a perfect addition to my spring decor. 


We've updated several things in our dining room lately, including our china cabinet makeover, an ironstone plate collection on two walls, and a relocated cabinet across from the buffet.


In case you missed the makeover post from last week you can click here to see what the china cabinet looked like before I painted it. It really is a huge before and after transformation! 


For a springtime feel, I simply added green moss to the nests and the table centerpiece, added succulents and birds nests with speckled eggs in the china cabinet, dried hydrangeas, and classic white plates.





I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

China Cabinet Makeover

Hey there. It has been awhile since I blogged last. A certain sweet little girl is keeping me busy these days! This past week I started working on several projects that I'll be sharing in the coming weeks. 


First I'd like to share this china cabinet that I updated in our dining room. We've had this vintage piece of furniture since we got married over seven years ago. I always knew someday I'd love to freshen the dark wood with some light colored paint.




I absolutely love the way it turned out and how well it fits in our dining room with the other painted furniture. The cabinet fits perfect on this wall since it's narrow, while still allowing plenty of walking room from the kitchen.


The details are stunning and really stand out now since I updated it.




Later this week I'll be sharing more of our spring dining room.
