I'm still living off my 15 minutes of fame with my project featured in Southern Home Magazine.  I hope they aren't mad at me for posting all of these still need to get the magazine to read the story right:)

I thought I would share a few more of the before and afters with you today....starting with the powder room......

Before of the powder room

This is quite the transformation!

Custom vanity, Circa Lighting, Design Galleria hardware, Kohler plumbing, Mirror Image Home mirror, and Lee Jofa wallpaper.

This is the way the vanity looked after it was installed and painted....yikes I started to panic.  This is not good and I might be fired.....need help fast.

I scoured the internet looking for the finish I wanted for the faux painter and came up with this one....

It gave it some much more depth.....Lord that was close.

I'm not sure I have done a bathroom makeover that I love more......

Foyer before.....




We had the Saltillo floors stained dark**, Thibaut grasscloth wallpaper.

**I do not know how they did it!

Right after they were finished....

Rocky Mountain hardware.

Gorgeous new doors, rug, and Circa Lighting chandelier.

I adore this chandelier.....sometimes you just get it right and it was the perfect selection for this space!

There is still more to share....

I can't wait to show you this beautiful bedroom that I just finished on Saturday.....

I had 16 bookshelves to do.  That put my brain into overload for sure.

I'm sharing my new addiction.....sea salt and black pepper Skinny Pop.....  

Of course it's only a reasonable snack if you don't eat the whole bag.

Don't get will be sorry.



Thank you for all the love about my project:) I have more to show you but  I think I'm going to interrupt all this "before and after" so I can show you what I saw at Scott's last week!  

I can't get there as much as I would like but I have a bedroom install tomorrow and I needed a few things for the "gob" of bookcases this room has.

Here are the fabrics.....

The first thing I needed was a rug and I was lucky to stumble across this beauty......

This is a huge bedroom and there is a sitting area with a sofa and 2 chairs.  We were going to do patterned wall to wall [see above] but we needed something that was good for pets so that changed to a solid**.  This will help to define the seating area now!

**Design is not all about beauty.  Function plays a huge part of pulling a room together.

I picked up this one for the master bath....

Here are a few other ones I saw....

The good thing is that most of the vendors are local so if a rug doesn't workout out they will exchange.  A big advantage!

I picked up a few pretty beads in the right colors....

And I saw this mirror that I want to use over the dresser below......It's kind of like art and mirror all in one!  The colors are perfect!

I'm excited to see this one come is the pretty bedding...the gorgeous Matouk duvet on the left.

Love this vendor with all of this blue and white!  

Saw this great fireplace mantel

And you know I can't resist an old bench.....wish I had a space for this in my house somewhere.

There were 2 of these painted dressers....sold....somebody scored!

Pink is still going strong everywhere!

Is copper still a thing?

I picked up this necklace which had my name on it....agree?

Well....I wrote this on Tuesday [trying to be so organized] and surprise Atlanta has a snow storm Wednesday night!

Normally it would have melted in a day but we were having temps like we lived in Antarctica so I had to cancel my Thursday installation....which will now happen on Saturday!

Before I leave.....I want to share this art with you.  Photographer Owen Masterson has created these block art modern sculptures and I am smitten!

Go to om.woodart  on Instagram to see more! is no secret that I don't really.  I always say my kitchen is just for resale.

Since it's January I have been really cutting back the calories which includes libations :( and food.  I have been trolling the grocery store like it's my job looking for quick + low calorie solutions.

I picked up this little number and it wasn't bad.  My thought after I ate the first one was the next time I will add a little ground turkey to it.....although that would involve cooking.... so prob won't happen. is spicy!

Alrighty then....kisses to all of you!



Well.....well....well!  Somebody is actually reading my blog!  You guys were commenting like it was 2014:)

I am so proud of this project and could not be happier that it was published in Southern Homes.  It was a perfect fit for their Before and After issue.

Just to review...... my clients had lived in this house for over 20 years and raised their 3 children there.  It is in a great location and after looking for a new house [with no luck] they decided to do the renovation.

After it was all done there was not one inch that wasn't updated including the whole unbuilt space downstairs adding a bedroom, bath, office another family room, sitting area, 1/2 bath, and gym! I am showing you the living room/dining room which were 2 rooms before and now have been opened up to one large space.

Right behind the kitchen was the DR 



2 doorways were added into the kitchen/family room.  The bookcases were also taken out.

She opted for a more casual space and the Charles Stewart dining chairs are covered in performance fabric!

One of my favorite things is the makeover of the fireplace including the antique mirror over the mantel.

Circa Lighting chandelier


Before of the living room

As you can see there were doors in-between the DR/LR.  We also changed the windows and got rid of the arches for a more streamline look.

Love this Lee Jofa trim....which helped to define the white curtains from the white walls.....Benjamin Moore White Dove

After.....same direction view.  Circa Lighting fixtures

All upholstery is Charles Stewart.  Paint color Benjamin Moore White Dove.

This became a long room and I wanted to add some of the bookcases back for texture.



I decided to frame them around the sofa.

As I said in the first post we re-used most of the clients art which had been collected over the years from their travels.....

You can see here it is all one space now....

I think this was the day I found this awesome coffee table from Bungalow Classic.

It was perfect for the space.

I really tried to give her a classic look....something that would stand the test of time....using as many of her accessories and such as I could so it would feel like home.

Architect: Linda Macarthur 
Builder: Michael Ladisic

I managed to make it through the week without any incidents.....meaning no change of clothes in the middle of the day....hahaha

I did do something stupid like wear new shoes to the Mart one day and now I am sporting ugly blisters on both of my heels....which limits my shoe wearing at this time.

Crikey it's always something. are the three subscriptions!  Please email me with your address!
