BEFORE AND AFTER




Well here it is Friday and I think my week skipped Tuesday :)  

I knew I was going to have another little fun before and after for ya today so I just wasn't motivated to to a post when I felt like it was going to be a snooze.  I realize many of you take the time to cruise over here and I wanna make sure you get a little bang!

So things are full circle here at Sherry Hart Designs. Now.....my long time clients children are grown and they are calling me to help them with their first apartments!

I can hardly say no and with Hannah I had done her bedroom when she was a little girl:)

So let's take a look at the changes.  First of all I only bought one small piece of furniture.....she already had been living there a few months but it just needed to be pulled together!

Rose and I came to the rescue.....

Here is the bedroom....which as you can see just needed a little help being pulled together.


Just a few accessories.....Target vase.


Before....


After....



She had the art hung and I bought a pillow and throw!








I just pulled a few colors out of the rug.....



Before......


We hung the art for her and just added a few small accessories!


Ta Da....





You can see it did not take much!

Moving into the living area.....



Let's break it down....new pillows, larger lamp shade and just a few accessories.


Pillows came from Crate and Barrel and West Elm

Before.....

And....the kitchen!


We only had about 3 hours to do this and I think we spend 2 hours on these shelves.....haha
Then we totally had to scurry.....



I found the art at Target and then just some greenery....she had everything else so we just shopped her place....










She had bought this shelve from Ballard Designs to serve as a bar area.....when we were there we told her where to hang it.





Honestly I think we only bought the faux plant from Target....the small bowl from HomeGoods.



The art and that's it!



Here are a few shots of the kitchen shelves....

Before.....


After....



We bought the small art and faux plant from Target....the vase from Crate and Barrel and the rug and blue vase from Homegoods.....





The rest was just styling:)



In the foyer I had her Mom make some prints to put in frames from HomeGoods...and we moved the rug that was previously in front of the kitchen sink.

Before....



After.


Before....she really needed a drop station for keys etc.


Everything we found at HG's was too short....but then Rose found this cabinet at Ikea!  The small mirror and lamp came from HG's.


So funny cause I had her Mom pick it up and when she and her husband opened the box they got overwhelmed [welcome to my world]!  They actually  called TaskRabbit to put it together and she said they were great....



 And that's it!  

Getting the sweetest text from her that evening made it all worth it!  I have to say that the main reason I am in design is that I love when people are happy with their spaces.....it's the best.

Have a great weekend y'all....

BEFORE AND AFTER





I love Fridays.....there I said it.  One reason is that I have been taking Saturdays off from work....you know like a "mental health day".  I used to just work 7 days a week....meaning that I was always doing some work on the weekends but that was no fun!

I got my second vaccine on Tuesday and I was waiting for all the bad things to happen but it was just like the first shot......nothing.  So there you have it.  

I posted about that on Instagram and somebody got all over me saying "I was acting like a hero" because I took the vaccine.  HUH?  Look....get one if you want or don't.....it is none of my business.....don't come at me.  

The only reason I think I am a hero is that I managed to find the darn "correct" parking deck at the Mercedes Benz Stadium since the only directions on the sheet of paper said "park at the stadium".  Um....there are like 25 parking decks.

#oldpeople need a little more help than that.

So I was about to dog y'all today cause I really didn't have anything to share with you.  I mean the fashion post about did me in with keeping all the links straight and stuff....:)

But I thought I would share just a few pictures to prove the power of paint in design!


OK....no judgement here....cause you know the after will be stunning.....


Here is the deal.....the opening to the room was about 4 feet so the first thing is to enlarge it.  Next up is take the corbels off the fireplace mantel. The surround is a brown marble and I suggested to keep it.....you'll see....


This entrance got closed in as they really didn't need it!




Now the opening has been widened to 6 feet.  We are going to keep the chandelier but paint out the room a light color.....painting out all the brown trim but keeping the stained wood sashes as they are throughout the house....


The Brazilian Cherry floors are getting refinished.  I know what you are thinking....how to get the red out of those suckers.  Well the floor guy gave us a sample and I was amazed.  He puts a bleach on them first and then he was able to get a pretty brown.  We are both excited about that!

OK.....are you ready to see the room painted????



I mean.....whoa mama.....



Total game changer!  Benjamin Moore White Sand.  I sent her some sconce selections.....so I will keep you posted on this little gem of a makeover.

Like I said.....the power of paint.....

Last night I went over to my neighbors and she order food from the Slutty Vegan.....

Ha Ha I think she was afraid we wouldn't have enough fries!  I plowed through those suckers and then we destroyed the rest.  She asked me if I wanted to take them home and I said #hellno.....I would not rest until they were all gone.
