It’s funny that the room we used the most in our Austin house was the room that I never photographed. I didn’t really do much to this room. I didn’t paint or change the floors. I stuck my furniture in there, added some curtains and called it a day. It’s the room we watched TV […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
This bathroom is on the second floor of our Austin house and shared by our daughters. Much like the girls’ bedrooms, this bathroom was low on my priority list with all the downstairs work to be done. I had not intended to do much of anything with it until our real estate agent gently told […]Continue Reading... 8 Comments.
Although I didn’t really get the opportunity to use my front porch for very long, once it was finished, it made for a nice welcome home. During our renovations, it was usually a spot for trash and building materials, so it was only recently there was room for a place to sit and some pretty […]Continue Reading... 4 Comments.
With all the work being done on the main floor, by the time we found out we were moving, there was no time to decorate the kid bedrooms on the second floor. My job became freshening, updating and staging in as little time as possible. The walls were freshly painted white by the last […]Continue Reading... 4 Comments.
Hey y’all, Here are the professionally taken photos of my kitchen and dining area. I am still learning how to use my camera and I do not feel like my pictures did the renovation justice. Lucky for me, a photographer came to shoot my house for the MLS listing and I was lucky enough to […]Continue Reading... 6 Comments.
This is the last room that I have to show you on the main floor of my Austin home. It’s only mine for another 9 days… This room was an open, formal living and dining area with laminate flooring, oak trim and outdated window treatments. It was an eyesore. We started by taking up […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
The living room, even in all its golden oak glory, was one of the things that sold us on this house. It has incredible wainscoting and detail on two walls, a soaring ceiling and a wood burning fireplace. It had all the makings of a great room, it just needed some updating. The first thing […]Continue Reading... 5 Comments.
This is my second kitchen renovation. I learned so much the first time around that this renovation went very smoothly. Once we realized we were moving, we decided we would not make any structural changes to the kitchen. Instead, we just replaced the old cabinets with new ones. That made things very very simple. We […]Continue Reading... 3 Comments.
This has been a crazy year. My family moved from our hometown (in Canada) to Alabama (briefly) to Austin and now we are moving to Boston. We bought a fixer upper in Austin and it has been completely remodelled. We sold it this week and we are out of here by the end of May. […]Continue Reading... 7 Comments.
The dining room was one of the first rooms that I worked on when we moved into our Texas home back in July. I saw a lot of potential in the beautiful oak wainscoting . This room wasn’t even the dining room, it was the breakfast area. Given its size, I decided to transform the […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
