Pair of Chairs

This past month I found a pair of antique side chairs at an estate sale for a bargain that I just couldn't pass up. I loved the curved back and petite size of the chairs, but the dated gold fabric and tufting was the first to go. I had them reupholstered in a neutral canvas fabric and painted the tapered legs white for a fresh new look. 

Here's how they look in a home I recently staged

And here's how they looked before...

It's amazing how new fabric and a little paint brought these chairs back to life.

 What do you think of the transformation? 

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today!


A Fixer Upper: Before & After

I had the pleasure of working on this fun remodel project recently. This split-level
5 bedroom, 3 bath stucco home was built in the mid nineties and seriously needed an overhaul.

Starting with the exterior, we painted the pale pink color and went with fresh white paint, we added brick around the bottom of the house, changed out the wood railing to iron on the front porch, installed a new wooden door and lanterns, then completely started over with all new landscape and a back deck.  

Next, on the interior we ripped up the parquet and vinyl flooring, took down the dated wallpaper and lighting, removed old counter tops and replaced them with new granite and marble, refaced all the cabinets with new doors and paint, installed new hardwood and tile, painted the whole house a neutral color, removed the textured ceilings for smooth ceilings, added detailed trim, reworked the stairs with oak treads, added all new oil rubbed bronze hardware throughout, and then we added a beautiful new back splash in the kitchen.

Now this house is completely updated and ready to move in! I'm certain this house won't stay on the market very long.
