  • Vintage Farmhouse Bathroom with Modern Appeal, Prestine 1960's: that would be the description of this bathroom when I bought my farmhouse. Yellow toilet, sink and shower. Psychedelic flower themed wallpaper. Orange carpet. Yes, carpet in the bathroom, on top of which the toilet sat. Yuck. Hazmat suit for demo? Yes, please. We gutted this bathroom down to the floor joists. We ran new electrical and installed a bathroom fan. We moved the toilet to accommodate a claw foot tub. And we busted down a wall to install a neo-angle glass shower. This was the first full room I remodeled in my house and I chose to go with a very vintage feel. I choose traditional penny tiles for the flooring and pine edge and center bead for the walls and ceiling. I decided to install pedestal sinks with vintage-y chrome faucets. Even though, I don't have as much storage space as I did before with the clunky plywood cabinet, I don't mind. There is something a little gross about storing things long term in a bathroom, don't you think? I choose to tile the shower with white subway tiles and to accent it with a glass tile. The glass shower door and the glass tile add a modern touch to a very vintage bath. I replaced the 1960 brass door knob on the bathroom door with a cast iron and glass replica knob made by a company in NH that has been producing door knobs, shelving brackets and other miscellaneous hardware since the 1890's. I figured the original door knobs from this house that were lost many years ago may have come from this company. It feels a little more like restoration and less like rote remodeling when I can find something from the same period to put back into the house. It brings peace to a house that upon entering looks chaotic - decades of mismatched remodels that don't quiet flow with one another or the original character of the house itself. And in the end, that is my purpose with this house - to right the wrongs of the past and restore it to its original splendor., Bathrooms Design

  • Whimsical European Living Room Updated, After several years, it was time to update my great room.  My inspiration was  a beautiful room done by Joanna  on Fixer Upper.  I found her chandelier, painted some Hobby Lobby sconces, and moved some things around. It's a work in progress, but here is where we are so far., Living Rooms Design

  • Our $4.39 Mudroom Makeover, Since movinginto our new (old) home this summer, we've been hard at work making it our own, all on a budget.  The entryway/mudroom had worn out, gray painted hardwood floors.  I went out and bought a roll of blue painters tape, went down into the basement where the previous owners left gallons of floor paint (ugh) and got to work., Other Spaces Design

  • From 1980's Country Nightmare to Rustic Industrial Dream, This was my 1890's farmhouse kitchen in the Stix... that last saw a makeover in 1985. We're talking blue laminate countertops, bargain basement laminate flooring, white aging appliances, and a blindingly boring white tile backsplash. As part of a six week overhaul on my 3000 sq foot farmhouse, we gutted the kitchen - except for the cabinets with handmade inset doors that were lovingly built into place by one of the owners many decades ago. The cabinets were painted Chelsea Grey and upgraded with black iron hardware. We opened the doorway to the dining room and moved the fridge to an underused wall on the other side of the kitchen. We laid hand scrapped hickory floors in various widths to keep the colonial farmhouse feel. I chose a level 2 granite countertop in Nero Wave - a beautiful black granite with white veining. We used reclaimed barn board from the local lumberyard to create a custom backsplash to balance out the modern elements that were used in the kitchen. And what's a farmhouse kitchen without a big, deep apron front sink? The 30" sink and an oil-rubbed bronze faucet in a vintage design are at the heart of the kitchen. But the cherry on top? That's the custom-built barn door that replaced the old blue interior door that linked the mudroom to the kitchen. It was built with reclaimed hemlock siding from an old Pennsylvania corn silo. Someone had it planed down for flooring but returned it to the lumberyard because it was "too" rustic. Boy, I'm sure glad they did, because it made a lovely barn door that keeps the chill off from the uninsulated mudroom and fills the empty space next to the fridge. With rolling barn door tracks, it exudes the kind of beauty in function that is the epitome of our design., Kitchens Design
