  • Workshop In A Box, Jack is one-half of Vintage and Flea, and he is a dumpster diving MacGyver. With a few plastic soda bottles, a cardboard carton, and roughly a half-dozen other things he dragged home from the street, he built a "workshop in a box".

Here is the story. We live in Manhattan, and like most New Yorkers, we lack the studio space needed for dirty projects like sanding, stripping, and varnishing. Jack figured out a way to contain the mess.  Using items that were kicked to the curb (a/k/a other's people's trash), he created an "anti-dust and fumes work enclosure" , Other Spaces Design

  • Sanding Sucks, I am slowly working on sanding the cabinets.  I can't wait to paint but trying to be patient with my prep work. (of course this doesn't make hubby happy) 
All cabinets are unfinished from Lowes or Home Depot.  I have been adding trim salvaged from our remodel.  Most of the trim originally was window trim.   I am thinking about painting the cabinets and all "mourning dove gray" by Martha Stewart.  And using beadboard on the ceiling and painting it a sky blue. What do you think?, Kitchens Design

  • From Old to NEW!!, Our 1950's kitchen entry was old and tight.  We tore out a wall, refinished the all wood cabinets, redesigned them into a much needed peninsula.  These things changed the entire first floor of the house.  This remodel lightened up both the kitchen and living room, gave us an excuse to redo the flooring and have fun redecorating!!  

Most of the "grunt" work (demolition, drywall hanging, mudding, sanding, painting, cabinet refinishing, reinstallation, etc.) was done by the lady of the house.  But it is never a bad thing to learn new skills!  Only the electrical, plumbing and gas lines reworking was done by the man of the house.  To say I'm proud is to understate it!!  , Kitchens Design

  • Jason's Sleek & Stainless Kitchen Remodel, After a one and a half month journey that began with the purchase of a new oven and refrigerator I quickly started ripping the kitchen apart and rebuilt around the concept of deep reds and stainless steel. I've always dreamed of a kitchen with a red wall; and while this may not be my dream kitchen I do have a red wall.  My goal during the project was to keep the kitchen open; everything available and ready. The design was built around a daily working kitchen., Kitchens Design

  • Home Office Overhaul, Here are some pictures of our home office project. We knew we had hard wood floors under the rug but did not know they were in such bad condition. We went for a light fun theme rather than a traditional formal office., Home Offices Design

  • Entry Way, Our entry way is not even close to being finished.  We have about 20 ft. tall vaults that still need to be mudded and sanded before we can prime and paint.  The entry is a split, but it opens right up into the dining room, Other Spaces Design

  • Earthy modern kitchen, This kitchen was screaming the 60s with dark walnut molding and wood trim, gloomy paneling and dated flowered wallpaper. The counters were white with gold speckles and were in poor condition from the use over the years. 

First we removed the paneling and the wallpaper. Once we accomplished this, we saw that the drywall was in rough shape. We filled the drywall with mud to repair what we could so we would have a fresh surface to work with. Because there were some areas on the walls that were quite challenging, we decided to use paint with sand texture to help conceal any imperfections. The owners wanted an earthy look to their home so they were very pleased with the sand texture to the kitchen walls. 

The old crank out windows was replaced with double hung windows.  The molding and trim was sanded down and was stained a honey oak to bring out the natural beauty of the wood.  We didn’t want to take away from the wood’s natural beauty so we installed wooden blinds to compliment and provide shade.

To add extra working space, an island was installed with enough space for both prep work and for your morning coffee. The old ceiling fan was removed and this beautiful stained glass light was added to provide additional lighting and charm. The old 60s counter top was removed and replaced matching the island’s counter top and matching back splash. 

The two old lighting fixtures that were over the counter were replaced with hanging stained glass pendants; providing a modern touch along with additional lighting.

With the changes we made, we were able to transform the old 1960s kitchen into a elegant, modern kitchen.

  • SCARY door makeover!, My front entry door was showing all the signs of damage from harsh Chicago winters.  I was a little nervous about stripping and refinishing.  I figured I would give it a shot because if it did not work out - I could always paint it.  It was a LOT of work but in the end - I LOVE IT!  , Home Exterior Design

  • My new kitchen, This kitchen is the original kitchen to this home.  When we moved in six months ago the cabinets were really bad.  No on had taken care of them and they were very dirty and water stained.  I refinished them by sanding them down and restaining them, and they may not be professional, but they are 1000% better than when we moved in.  Today we had grante countertops installed and what a difference they make.  I have now finished taking down the old wallpaper and have painted the kitchen.  It looks so much better!, Kitchens Design

  • Tuscan Dining at It's Best!, We bought a new bar height set for our anniversary to go with our sideboard that I found at a discount store. It had damage so I got a good price of $125 and I remade it. Instead of making the sideboard perfect (it had damage)  I purposely roughed it up more and put a stencil on the doors and changed out the hardware to copper. This dining set matched it perfectly it also has the distressed look. We painted the dining room yellow and usedTuscan theme accents with bright colors to decorate., Dining Rooms Design

  • Kitchen Redesign, Before this kitchen was very country/builder grade. It had shiny oak cabinets, gold hardware, pink & blue laminate countertops, and bright white backsplash.  I have painted the cabinets and replaced the hardware with aged bronze.  I have not replaced the countertops or backsplash, yet.
Any ideas on window treatments?, Kitchens Design
