A while ago, I posted about a bathroom remodel that I was working on and I asked you to guess which antique table we decided to go with for the vanity (if you follow me on Instagram then you got a sneak peek!) Here are a few before and after shots of the bathroom, although please keep in mind these are not the ‘styled & professionally photographed’ after-shots, but then again you guys know me better than that.
The easiest way to hide dated wallpaper is to cover it up with a wall treatment and these planks did just the job.
The bathroom is part of a basement living area that also consists of a family room and a small secondary kitchen. My client wanted to make a few cosmetic changes to the kitchen that would update the look without gutting it. She already had a navy blue sofa and we selected 2 navy and white striped chairs from Ballard’s in the family room (you can see a little bit of the chair in the picture below). So for the kitchen design, I worked off all of the navy and white and went with a classic, nautical look…..and the fact that this home is on the river, it just seemed perfect!
You know I love seersucker!
We added navy grass cloth and a polished nickel light fixture and my client painted the existing table and chairs.
The antique ice chest was in her garage, yes, her garage! She texted me one day and asked if I thought this would work in the kitchen. I quickly said, “yes, and what else do you have in there? I may need to come shopping”.
We are now working on the upstairs living room and dining room and I promise I’ll have real pictures to show you when it’s finished.
And just so you know I mean it…I signed up for The Lettered Cottage “Shoot Fly Shoot” course last week. The thought of finally learning how to use my camera has me beyond excited! My friend Maria is taking the course with me so we can hold each other accountable (Maria, have you started yet?!?) Uh-ha, see what I mean?
Have any of you taken the course?
Thank you for stopping by!
