Kitchens.....the hub of the home.  Probably the one space that can help sell a house right?  So it makes sense that you would invest the most thought [and probably money]  in this part of a remodel.

Some facts we considered when designing this kitchen.  
**Once we took the closet wall down it would be visible from the foyer.....
**Adding the black and white cement tile created the WOW factor!
**Open up the space [taking part of the wall down] for easy entertaining.
**Creating hubs....butlers pantry and prep allow for more "cooks" in the kitchen.

Here is the original real estate shot when the house was on the market.

Such a light bright space....

Most are real estate shots as I left before it was totally finished.  You know I am not happy about that!

The awesome backsplash from  Cement Tile Shop!


Here you can the wall was opened up and the fridge was moved to make room for a small butlers pantry.


The prep station has a butcher block top and a place to put pots and pans......only pretty ones:)

Using my favorite Grohe faucet!

To help warm up the space the island was wrapped in white pine...

We were influenced by the fact that easier entertaining could be managed by not putting a sink or cooktop in the island.

This shows the small dining area in reference to the kitchen...

Moving on....the hall bath


And my cheap DIY art....
Ikea frame and pretty paper!

Before I you can see the floor!

This is the bonus room over the garage...

The back hallway leading up to the bonus room. Kind of digging how this Cole and Sons tree wallpaper looks in this space!

Real Estate shot.   And those lights were turned horizontally after these shots:)

Small powder room where you see the wallpaper sample.....

It wasn't finished but love this Schumacher can see the black and white theme throughout!

And to the left of this bathroom is a TV/Den
Sectional and coffee table from World Market, chair and floor lamp from Target

I just got a hold of some after outside pictures from the listing.

This is before landscaping but first coat of paint.

The color is BM Wrought looks green in some shots

So glad we decided to paint the entrance white!

Back yard before

This house is right on the golf course!

And...that is a wrap.  

Things to remember.  Really only 2 walls [kitchen and foyer] were removed in the whole house!  It was pretty much cosmetic with most of the labor concentrated in the kitchen and master bath. 

It's officially for sale now.  By the way the house I went out there to stage a few weeks ago sold already!  It's a hot market in Boulder.

What are y'all up to this weekend?  I've got 2 deliveries today and then I plan on hitting the booze pretty hard after that..... hee haw

The Boulder Project.  I'm really sorry it's over.  I had to leave before I could move everything an inch or so.....finish that last layer with some plants and get some perfect detail shots.

For me that was was my baby for 3 months....consuming my thoughts. 

Today I have some of the real estate shots along with my iphone pics to share.  You know how the real estate shots are.....wide angle with all the lights on!

A floor plan of the main level for reference.

 Here is an original real estate shot of the living area
After of the same area....real estate shot.

Just a coat of paint [BM White Dove] in here really....the chairs are from Target.

Most of this furniture we used in the last project!  
All the pillows above are from Target.

The coffee table was ordered online from Target.  It was a breeze to put together [that is how I rate things now after that last experience with the Target console!] and I really liked it!

Target pillows.  Ikea sofa.
I love these HomeGoods vases....trying to keep everything kind of organic with neutral colors.


Here is another before shot of the family room....
 You can see we split the room because it was so large.

Took down the bookcases and added shiplap.

We added the shelf for hold some wine or bread while dining!  

And that large wall.....well we needed art on the fly and cheap!  

So I got busy with some paint and white paper.

I know....original art is always better but this is staging people!

The table was from Target...not sure it is available any more.  The chairs are from Overstock.  Light fixture from Rejuvenation.

Real Estate shot.

Before real estate shot.  There was the closet as you walked in the front door.

And this was behind the wall.  The dining room was previously  located in this space.  In my opinion I did not want to see the DR table first thing after walking in the front door.

I know what you are thinking.....what do you do with that space now?  It's right off the kitchen....maybe the kids play while you are cooking dinner....maybe it's a good space to entertain....I love the open feeling of it.


The iron divider is my favorite thing.

You can see through to the sunroom that was used for a sitting area.  It had a grill and we believe that it might have been a screened in porch at one time.

We decided to use it as a dining area.  

Had some Schumacher wallpaper left over from the last project!  Just enough :)

Real Estate shot.  The mirror got hung!

Table from Pier One.  Bar cart from Target. Chairs from Overstock.

The foyer....

After the door was painted.....

This is the color which you can see better from the outside.

Before of the outside area....
After the new wood was put up.


I'll have more on Friday....the bathrooms and kitchen!

Maybe they will be nice and send me some more finished shots......


Y'all it's been raining for 3 days and I am starting to listen to sad music.
