PROJECT BOULDER BEFORE AND AFTER PART 2





Are you ready for part 2 of #ProjectBoulder?  It's hard for me to believe that this home got renovated and decorated in 6 weeks.....I am sure all of my clients would be happy if that happened:)

Don't hate please.

Anyway let's get right to it.  To catch you up on this project.... my stepdaughter and her husband [they live in Boulder, Co.] bought this home to renovate it.  He is the builder and she sells real estate.  Perfect combo huh? Then..... they bring me in to stage it.  

As far as I am concerned I get the fun job!

I am using the listing pictures to show you the before.


This was the kitchen.


Kitchen now.....a few people have asked about the floors.  They are red oak with no stain and 3 coats of matte sealer.

Before

After

The sconces are from Restoration Hardware and the funny part is that they were not our first choice!  Everything else we wanted were back ordered....so I guess sometimes things happen for a reason right:)




Reclaimed wood shelves


Most of the things on the shelfs we already had from other staging projects....




Top Knobs hardware

Countertops are Caesarstone.





Before shot....

After



Because of the low ceiling over the island area we made the decision not to do any light fixtures.....

Before of the family room....

I don't know if you can tell in this before shot but the island area was bar height and we took it down to counter height....plus we shortened it up about 6" to make the entrance into the kitchen work better.


Waterfall counter.

Getting started......

Picked up this sofa at Ikea for the sale price of 399.00!  Boyah.

Rug from West Elm [it was on sale when we bought it]



The chairs are from Wayfair, coffee table from Joss and Main, poufs from Pier One, Lamp from West Elm, stool from HomeGoods, pillows on chairs from Bed Bath and Beyond.

Before....



Again...the fireplace screens will be painted.  The light fixture is from World Market.






THIS Home Depot tile is everything!




Just a few more rooms.....on Tuesday.

Weather report:  Y'all it is SO hot EVERYDAY here in Atlanta.  I mean yes.... I know it is summer and all but June was like July and now we are in July and still have August left and my hair is not cooperating at all.

Book report:  I just finished this one and it was so good and very relevant to what is going on in America today. A true store about injustice. 



Y'all be chill.....

Sherry, You're amazing! I love this home, especially the black stainless frig, the chairs and sofa, the sconces.....you've created such a special haven! It's hard to believe that it's the same home as the before photos. Bravo!!

Mary said...

You know how it is...you look at pictures of pretty rooms & you think to yourself how you would do this or that different? Well I wouldn't do a single thing different to these spaces. I love everything! Down to the last accesory.
You certainly are talented. Have a relaxing weekend. You deserve it.

Allison said...

Love it! You said you were going to paint the fireplace screens - how do you plan to do that? I've heard different opinions when high heat spray paint isn't an option...

Cindy in OK said...

Love the transformation. I went from unstained white oak floors in our last home to medium dark stained hickory in this one... I'd love to go back to a more natural look. The floors in your redo are gorgeous...

just finished that book about a month ago.... and saw the author as a guest on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday a week or so ago. If you loved the book you would love listening to Stevenson speak... my list of heroes has to include him now....

I just saw the listing, gahhhhhh that property! Seems like a steal compared to what you can get in Dallas for that amount. There's definitely not a view like that anywhere around here ;) Just a spectacular home, you all really did this just beautifully!!

It looks amazing, Sherry. Can't believe it was done in 6 weeks!. The tile from Home Depot is fabulous!! Happy Sunday!

Mary Ann Pickett said...

That kitchen is so clean and ahead of the curve. They are so lucky to have you!

René said...

Man on man! What a transformation! So good!

Hi, quick question about the red oak floors. Were they newly installed or were they the original ones stripped of the yellow looking finish and then just new sealer? I was thinking all new floors would be costly when there was already wood floors there.
Your staging sure made a big difference. The interiors with the high pitches of the ceilings and modern windows called for very contemporary furnishings which you did. Old traditional furnishings really looked bad in there. Big change. I hope they got an offer on it over the weekend. Thanks.

sara said...

Wow, stunning!! What a transformation. Love everything about it. I'm thinking of using the Home Depot tile myself. Where did you get the stainless laundry room sink? I'm looking for an affordable one.

StagerLinda said...

Sherry, you better pack your bags and put your house on the market. Every realtor and seller in Boulder is going to seek you out. AMAZING TRANSFORMATION! Your vision and execution worked wonders. Congrats on a quick sale! (I checked out other comparable Boulder listings--they pale in comparison.)

Jessie said...

I love everything you did, Sherry! Well done. The kitchen and living room look stunning. So many beautiful details!

What kind of poly did you use? Brand? Oil or water?

Absolutely love your floors Sherry, getting ready to install red oak throughout house now, would like them exactly like yours, what sealer did you use?

Liz said...

Such lovely space!! Thank you for sharing. I am getting so much inspiration for our first home that we close on this week. I've already ordered the Home Depot merola tile and hardware. We have red oak floors we are refinishing. I've heard that oil-based sealers can yellow over time and for lighter colored floors it is based to use water-based. Could you share what sealer you used? Any information would be so much appreciated! Thank you!

Nicole Rolfe said...

I'm in the same boat as many of your commenters. I've spent 6 days sanding down our red oak floors and ready to seal them. I love the look of the floors at this point, but shudder at the thought of them yellowing or reddening (as they looked pre-sanded). Would you share what you used to seal the floor? And do you know it has held up? Love what you've done!!

Viraj Lakdawala said...

I would also love to hear what sealer you used.

Dave Bryand said...

I would also love to hear what sealer. We are going to start on our floors Monday and this is the exact look that I've been looking for. Thanks in advance!

Hi there! I have a few questions for you :)

My husband and I want black window frames in our new house, but wanted to go without trim, your home is the first I have come across where I love this black trim around the window! Can you tell me what material you used and if you just painted it black to match and how wide the trim is?

Second, I also LOVE the carpet on your staircase. What kind of carpet is it? Did you do hardwood on your second level, and if so, do you have a photo showing the transition?

I love your work! It's absolutely beautiful!

If you want, you could email me at hello@daleandpeonies.com

Thank you!
