Renovation Sneak Peak

Normally, I don't do this. I am all about working with what you have. Sometimes however, what you have is not worth working with. Scary, I know. Even if you get creative. This unsuspecting client called me in for a master bath makeover. I told her (in my sweetest) honest voice: It's not worth it. 

The bathroom was choppy, the shower was tiny, the tile was disgusting, and there was a bidet. It was not pretty. Changing the wallpaper and updating the backsplash can only do so much in a very dated bathroom. I was afraid that when it was finished, she still wouldn't like the look or function of her master bath. 
One thing lead to another and before we were done, the bathroom was gutted, the kitchen was gutted and two other bathrooms were down to the studs. I make it sound so easy, but there was a great deal of deliberation, tons of estimates, second estimate, third estimate... and when it was all said and done, this family had to move out to achieve the look they had always dreamed of. Sounds pretty painful. 

Happy days are here again because moving day is tomorrow!!! Hopefully, the pain of renovating will be forgotten when they see the end result. I wanted to give you a sneak peak before we put all of the furnishings into their brand new home.
Here is a sneak peak of the master. It is a recycled glass sconce and killer tile... can't wait to show you the rest! 
 A dated wood/brass ceiling fan got replaced with this Arteriors glass bottle chandelier. It's beautiful in their two story living room.
 These dining chairs are going in the (very) updated dining room below. These are Gabby and aren't the gorgeous?
 Check out their new dining room! It is awaiting a very long limed oak dining table. 

You can see (from the kitchen), the old version of the dining room. It's so bright now and we sanded off the faux finish for clean, smooth Elmira White and a Hollingsworth Green ceiling (both Ben Moore colors). Just wait until you see the kitchen. You will FLIP. 

Stay tuned for the install pics and the finished product! 
bye bye birdie...

Hi Ashley, they are from Gabby Furniture. They are the "Kennedy" chair and they are beautiful in person! Thanks for asking.
