Clint and Mary’s Kitchen Renovation {Part One}

April 7, 2014 AT 10:10 am 2 Comments

Hey friends!

I am so excited to share Cy’s latest remodeling project with you!

A couple of months ago, he started working on Clint and Mary’s kitchen renovation. It was a HUGE renovation, and I wanted to share some of the “before” pictures with you.

When you walk in their front door, you immediately see their living room on the right.

The living room leads into the dining room.  The plan was to move the wall between the two rooms forward making the living room smaller and the dining room bigger.

Cy was also going to add new French pocket doors between the two rooms.

If you keep walking past the living room, you will find yourself in their den.

kitchen renovation

Like most homes built during this time, there is a wall separating the den from the kitchen.  Clint and Mary wanted a more “open” feel in their home and wanted to tear down the wall between the two rooms.

Mary loves to entertain and host get-togethers, so she wanted a space that facilitated a lot of people.

Her kitchen was small and closed off from the rest of the house.

It was also missing adequate storage.  Mary wanted a LOT of cabinets and storage space.  {What woman doesn’t, right?!} Smilekitchen renovation

We made plans to tear out the small panty and create a larger one with double doors.  The wall between the kitchen and dining room was also going to get torn down, opening up the space even more.

If you walk through the small kitchen, you will end up in the dining room.

As you can tell in the picture below, every room was separated from the other ones with walls.  Well that was going to change….BIG TIME!

Here are a few sneak peeks of the “during” photos.

And the wall between the den and the kitchen was torn down…

I cannot wait to show you the “afters” of this space!  It is an amazing transformation!

The old, bulky shower in the middle of the wall had to go!…

Robin bought a beautiful blue dresser to go where the old shower used to be, and the now the new shower is tucked perfectly in the corner providing a lot more space in the bathroom and making it appear larger.

Speaking of the shower….

I think my hubby did a great job creating that custom arch and tiling the shower!  Smile

And I am in love with the custom glass doors that Robin picked out for her shower. bathroom makeover reveal

Robin’s Bathroom Makeover Reveal {Part One}

December 1, 2013 AT 9:58 pm 13 Comments

I am soooo excited to share this bathroom makeover reveal with you!

As you know, my husband went into business for himself this past year.  He started an insulation and remodeling business.  We thought he would do more insulation than remodeling, but it has actually been the opposite.

Part of the reason is because of my blog.  Many of his remodeling jobs have come from people who read my blog. Smile

Like Robin.

Robin has been reading my blog, and my sister’s blog, for a while now, and when she read that Cy was starting his own remodeling business, she asked him to give her master bathroom a makeover.

Robin is precious, and it was awesome meeting her in person!

Today, I want to show you what her bathroom looked like the day Cy and I went to her house, and some of the plans she/we had for the bathroom

Here is what the bathroom looked like as soon as you walked in…

bathroom makeover reveal

One of the first things Robin told us that she wanted to change in her bathroom was the flooring.

bathroom makeover reveal

She also wanted to remove the vanity and install a new double sink vanity.

I suggested that she tear out the small linen closet beside the vanity to make the bathroom feel more spacious.

bathroom makeover reveal

On the right side of the bathroom, there was a big, bulky shower right in the middle of the wall.  Robin wanted that shower torn out and a new one built in the right corner of the bathroom.

bathroom makeover reveal

She also wanted to get rid of the big tub.  I definitely agreed with this decision! Smile

bathroom makeover reveal

Removing the tub would make a huge difference in this space.

You can see in the picture below how the shower wall juts out and takes up a lot of space.

bathroom makeover reveal

The only thing that we were not going to change in this bathroom was the toilet.  It was going to stay where it was, but that area would get a little update.

bathroom makeover reveal

We also left the walk in closet alone.  It stayed put.

bathroom makeover reveal

 

Cy and his crew got busy on this bathroom!  They got rid of the old flooring and corner tub.

bathroom makeover reveal

They tore out the vanity and linen closet and hung new drywall in its place.bathroom makeover revealThey also tore out the old shower, and installed a new tub and shower in the corner of the bathroom.

bathroom makeover reveal

It is amazing how much larger the bathroom began to look with the shower moved down to the corner!

bathroom makeover reveal

Robin wanted an arch in the shower, so Cy custom built one for her.

bathroom makeover reveal

He installed beautiful 12×12 tiles on the shower wall along with an accent piece.

bathroom makeover reveal

For the new floor, Cy installed the tile on the diagonal which visually makes the floor space look larger.

bathroom makeover reveal

Do you liked what you have seen so far?

Well, here is a sneak peak of the final reveal tomorrow!

bathroom makeover reveal

I can’t wait to show you the rest of it!  {I wish I could take credit for how beautifully decorated Robin’s bathroom is, but she did it all herself, and you are going to LOVE it!}

Come back tomorrow to see all of the “before and afters” of this beautiful bathroom makeover!




Bathroom Makeover Reveal!!

September 2, 2013 AT 8:39 am 52 Comments

 

Hey friends!  Happy Labor Day!

I wanted to quickly share with you a makeover that Cy did on a client’s bathroom.

bathroom makeover

He had already started the demolition process before I could get a before picture, so this is what it looked like when I showed up.

Bathroom makeover

That is where the toilet used to be.

He was going to try to keep and re-do the original vanity, but it was in such bad shape, I convinced him to let me find a piece of furniture I could turn into a vanity.

I found this piece of furniture at our local antique mall for $90 dollars.  That was so much cheaper than any new vanity that I would buy at Lowe’s or anywhere else.

 

Bathroom makeover

I painted the dresser with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Gray.  We reused the same hardware because it was perfect.  We were planning on keeping the original top on the dresser, but Cy ended up having to replace it.

dresser to vanity

He bought some oak, stained it, and sealed it with poly to create a new vanity top.

For the bathtub, he used a tub refinishing kit from Lowe’s to cover up the old blue tub.

Bathroom makeover

 

I picked out the tile for the shower and floor.  It is from Lowe’s.  I will try to get the exact name of this tile and add it to my post today.

Bathroom makeover

 

bathroom makeover

We were super pleased with how it looked.

Cy installed bead board all around the room which really made the space look bigger and brighter.

bathroom makeover

We painted the walls above the bead board a tan color.

Here is what the bathroom looked like before…

bathroom makeover

Here is the after!

Cy bought the light at Lowe’s, and he built a custom mirror.  I think it looks so fresh and lovely!

The clients were on vacation while Cy completed this remodel.  The husband wanted to surprise his wife with a new bathroom.

Before they got home, Cy bought some flowers to place on the vanity, a card, and a new brown hand towel.

Isn’t that sweet?!

 

bathroom makeover

I love my man.  Smile

He’s working on another bathroom remodel right now, and I can’t wait to show it to you when he is finished!

 

Have a blessed Labor Day!!

Hey Guys!

I get to show you another great makeover that my husband just finished at my Aunt Lois and Uncle Ed’s home!

Bathroom Makeover Reveal

They live in a beautiful home, but they were wanting to update their master bathroom.

Here is what it looked like before…

 

Bathroom Makeover Reveal

And the after…

Cy raised their old vanity to a higher height and painted it white.  He also added a new marble countertop, hardware, and faucets.

The previous tub and tile were definitely out dated…

Bathroom Makeover Reveal

Aunt Lois was wanting a free standing tub, so Cy installed this one…

 

Bathroom Makeover Reveal

Isn’t it gorgeous?

As you can tell, Cy installed beadboard paneling all around the bathroom.  And he installed the beautiful octagon tile on the floor.

Here is another look at the tub before…

It looks so cool when it is all lit up.

Bathroom Makeover Reveal

 

It was super hard to take pictures of the shower, but if you look at the before, you can see that the old shower doors where trimmed in brass.  Not good.

Bathroom Makeover Reveal

Cy installed new tile in the shower and these beautiful glass doors to give it a much more up-to-date look.  The glass shower doors really open up the space too!

 

Bathroom Makeover Reveal

Aunt Lois wanted a seat in the shower, so Cy created this corner seat and used some of the same marble that is on the vanity for the top of it.

Bathroom Makeover Reveal

He also used a piece of the marble in the entry of the shower to tie it all together.

Kitchen Makeover Reveal

July 21, 2013 AT 11:27 pm 72 Comments

 

Remember back in March, how I told you that one of Cy’s first jobs in his new business was remodeling my brother and SIL’s kitchen in their new home?

Well, he finished it a couple of months ago, but I just now got over to their house to take some “after” pictures!

Sorry for the delay. Smile

 

But I am so excited to show you Cy’s fabulous work!

Let’s remember what it looked like before….

 

painting oak cabinets

 

And the after!….

My brother, Blake,  and sister-in-law, Ande, are absolutely thrilled with how it turned out!

It is amazing how much of a difference was made by painting the kitchen cabinets white!

He used Benjamin Moore’s White Dove on the cabinets.

The oak cabinets completely dated the kitchen…

But now the cabinets look fresh and current…

To paint the cabinets, Cy used the Homeright Finish Max Sprayer.

You can read about how he painted the cabinets HERE.

Ande chose to paint the island herself, and Cy installed a new granite counter top on it.

Isn’t it gorgeous?!  I believe Ande got those stools at IKEA.

Cy also installed IKEA butcher block counter tops just like the ones in our kitchen.

I cannot get enough of butcher block counter tops!

Ande picked out a beautiful stainless steel farmhouse sink for her kitchen.  Cy had to rebuild the cabinet below to make it fit, and it looks great!

Blake and Ande also had the floor refinished, which added even more beauty to this space!

So there you have it!  What do you think?

Did Cy do a good job?  Smile

{Craft} Closet Makeover

March 31, 2013 AT 6:06 pm 128 Comments

 

I have finally finished my craft closet makeover!  Woo to the hoo!

It has taken me a little longer than I had originally planned because of that “little” surgery I had a few weeks ago.  {wink}

But thanks to Lowe’s I was able to get the materials I needed to get it finished.  I am so excited to be a part of the Lowe’s Creative Ideas Creators and Influencers network!

 

Creators & Influencer

 

Here is what my closet looked like less than two weeks ago…

craft closet makeover

And here it is now!…

craft closet makeover

So much bettter!

craft closet makeover

 

It all started with taking everything out of the closet and removing the header.

craft closet makeover

Cy helped me with this part.  I wanted to open up the closet so it was easier to reach the top shelf and so it wouldn’t look so much like, well…. a closet.  Smile

craft closet makeover

Eventually, we are going to pull up all of the old carpet in this room, so we decided to go ahead and remove the carpet from our closet before we built our shelves.

Eli helped with the clean up.

craft closet makeover

Next, I painted the closet the same color as the rest of the room.  It is called Natural Choice by Sherwin Williams, but I always have them color match it at Lowe’s and use Valspar.

craft closet makeover

 

We went to Lowe’s to buy some shelving pieces and decided to use these…

craft closet makeover

 

We decided to build shelves to hold some baskets on each side of the closet.  When we nailed these pieces together, we made sure that we used wood glue as well in between the pieces to make sure that the hold was strong.

 

 

 

craft closet makeover

 

We bought some pegboard from Lowe’s and covered the back and side walls with it.

 

craft closet makeover

Then we were able to place the first shelf right on top of the pegboard and 1×2’s.

 

craft closet makeover

I wanted to go a little out of my comfort zone and pick a bright color to paint the pegboard.  I will with Caribbean Holiday by Olympic.

I LOVE this color!

 

craft closet makeover

I bought 6 corbels from Lowe’s and painted them white using my favorite Valspar paint in Satin White.

 

craft closet makeover

To make the shelves look a little more custom, we added trim work to the front of them.

After  a lot of filling nail holes, caulking, and painting, the closet was ready to be organized and decorated.

To help me organize my craft supplies, I bought the following pegboard organizer kit from Lowe’s…

Blue Hawk Metal Pegboard Organizer Kit

It is so nice to have all of my supplies out in the open.

Now I don’t have to waste time searching for supplies when working on a project. It is all within plain view. Smile

craft closet makeover

I really like the decorative touch that the corbels I bought at Lowe’s give to the shelves.

I wanted to be sure to add a cute pendant light to my closet, so I bought this Edison Light from Lowe’s.

Here is the link to this light…

Oh, we also painted the subfloor with white paint.  I am planning on painting the wood floor in the rest of the room as well {eventually.}

I am also wanting to put a stool in the space in the middle of the closet.  However, I have yet to find the type of stool I am wanting to use.

 

craft closet makeover

 

But for now, I am thrilled with my new craft closet!!  There’s nothing better than feeling more organized!

 

 

Let’s check out the before and after again!

Guest Bathroom Makeover Reveal!

January 16, 2013 AT 12:06 am 153 Comments

 

Whew!  We have finished our guest bathroom!

reveal

 

It feels so good to finally have two fully functioning bathrooms in our home now!

We’ve come a long way in this bathroom.

I tried to find pictures of this bathroom when we moved here a year and a half ago, but I don’t think I took any!  {bad, bad blogger}

I did find a video of the first day we moved in.  Here are some still shots of the video.

Check out our “leaf cushioned toilet seat.”  {Please do not pin these pictures from my site!}  Smile

potty

Here are the mirrored shower doors…

shower

And our gorgeous vanity…

sink

Fabulous, I know.

The only change we made when we first moved in was to take down those hideous shower doors and use a shower curtain instead.  We left everything else the same because we didn’t have it in our budget for a bathroom renovation.

But MAN did I want to get my hands on this bathroom!

So let’s just say that it was a “blessing in disguise” when Luke decided to stand on the soap dish holder one night while taking a shower and caused the lower half of the tiled wall to come tumbling down!

bathroom makeover

It forced us to move up the bathroom renovation by like two years!

{And I am so glad it did.}

So the first thing we did was to rip down all the old tile.

bathroom makeover

The window in the shower had to be replaced.  Water was getting in behind the tile and causing it to mold.

So we chose to put a solid window in the shower that doesn’t open and close.

white subway tile

We also went with white subway tile from Lowe’s.

So much better already!

white subway tile

Cy installed bead board on the ceiling, and I painted it white.

He tore out the old linoleum flooring and installed white octagonal tile from Lowe’s.

white octagonal tile flooring

 

And as much as we hated to get rid of this beauty…

bathroom makeover

 

 

We decided to replace it with a custom made vanity that Cy built out of leftover butcher block from our kitchen renovation.

DIY vanity

As you can see, we added wood planks to the walls with some trim work on top.  We painted the wood Beige Shadow from Lowe’s.

wood plank walls

We took down the hideous medicine cabinet that split your face into three parts when you looked into it…

bathroom makeover

And replaced it with an oval mirror from Lowe’s.  We also took down the very dated light fixture and replaced it with a $16 outdoor light from Lowe’s as well.

cottage bathroom

 

I added the berry wreath during Christmas for a pop of color, but I think I am going to leave it up through the winter months.

cottage bathroom

I used some window treatments that I found at Marshall’s for $19.99 for my shower curtain.

bathroom makeover

 

They look real “see through” in these pictures, but do not look like that “in person.”  It’s because it is really hard to take pictures of a window, and I had to brighten my picture up a lot so the bathroom wouldn’t look too dark.  {These are the moments that I wish I was a professional photographer!}

I wanted to do a split shower curtain so it looked like I was decorating the window behind it with window treatments.

bathroom makeover

I also didn’t want to block the wonderful light from the window with a solid shower curtain.

I have a few other little things that I would like to do in this bathroom, but for the most part, it is finished.

One thing I am still trying to decide on is what type of privacy feature I want to add to the window.  I have a couple of ideas, but just can’t decide on one.  If this bathroom was on the second floor, I would totally leave it “as is.”  But since this is on the main level right next to our driveway, I am going to have to have something on the window to provide privacy.

The other thing I need to get is a hand towel holder for the side of the vanity.

bathroom makeover

There is not a good space for the hand towel to go on the wall, so I am going to install a chrome bar on the side below the vanity top for hand towels.  It will help hide the ugly pipes below and will also fit with the style of my bathroom.

I LOVE this bathroom!

It is fresh, and crisp, and clean, and has that cottage vibe that I love.

bathroom makeover

Right now, the boys are using this bathroom until we get theirs finished upstairs.  I am hoping and praying that they don’t destroy it before we do!  Smile

 

If you have any questions about our makeover, please feel free to ask me in the comments!

Have a blessed day!

My Sister’s Laundry Room Makeover REVEAL!

June 20, 2012 AT 6:00 am 46 Comments

 

 

I am so thrilled to be sharing with you my sister’s laundry room makeover!

She is super happy with how it turned out, and I love how clean and crisp it looks.

Let’s take a look back at this space, shall we?

Four months ago, her laundry room looked like this…

blissdom 034

Here were some of the plans we had for this room…

blissdom 018

blissdom 019

blissdom 020

blissdom 021

blissdom 029

blissdom 026

So…

1.  We took down the shelves.

2.  Painted the walls.

3.  Installed white cabinets I found at the Habitat store.

4.  And Decorated!

And here is Cyndi’s laundry room now!

laundry&dad's 049

What once looked like this…

Now looks like this…

After…

laundry&dad's 047

For the cabinets, I found two white cabinets at the Habitat store for $30 a piece.

My Dad and Wayne hung them up against each side of the walls.

window 016

Cyndi took off the brass knobs and added some nickel ones.

Then I stayed all night at Cyndi’s house one Friday and built two shelves between the cabinets for baskets.

laundry&dad's 019

Cyndi’s major request for this makeover was to have a place to hang her clothes to dry.

So I attached a silver towel bar to the bottom of the cabinets for her to hang her clothes on.

laundry&dad's 020

We moved the washer and dryer apart to leave space to hang clothes in the middle.  The washer and dryer also looked better lined up underneath each cabinet.

laundry&dad's 040

I hate that the hot and cold water lines are so visible, but I just couldn’t quite come up with a plan to cover them.  I’ll keep thinking about that. Smile

 

The accessories above the cabinets are from Home Goods {minus the basket and greenery on the right.}

Cyndi and I just fell in love with that bird print when we saw it, and it was reasonably priced.  It adds a touch of whimsy to the room and really fills that empty space in the room well.

laundry&dad's 060

 

We went ahead and updated the bathroom that is connected to the laundry room.  Unfortunately, I do not have any “before” pictures of that space, but here are a few “after’s”…

As you can see, you enter the bathroom before you get to the laundry room.

laundry&dad's 048

The bathroom was painted yellow, but we painted it the same color of the laundry room.  (Well, our dad did.)  SmileIt’s called “Urban Putty” by Sherwin Williams.

laundry&dad's 051

We bought some cute prints at Home Goods for above the toilet.

laundry&dad's 071

We pulled in the greens and blues from the laundry room rug.

Cyndi also bought this cabinet at Home Goods for her bathroom.  She stores cleaners and toilet paper in this cabinet.  Plus, the lamp on top of the cabinet makes the bathroom feel extra comfy and home-y.

laundry&dad's 031

 

Now, instead of leaving the doors closed on the bathroom and the laundry room, Cyndi leaves them wide open!

She loves looking into the laundry room now from her kitchen.

laundry&dad's 076

The chandelier we bought at Home Depot definitely dresses up the space!  And it gives the room a beautiful glow.

And that rug!  Oh, I am so in love with that rug!  It provides the perfect punch of color on the floor.  It truly “makes” the space.

laundry&dad's 015

We got the rug at Home Goods as well.  {Yes, we love us some Home Goods!}

I know I am forgetting some of the details, so if you have a question, just ask!  Smile

What is your favorite part of this makeover? 

I would love to hear it!
