So I just dropped of the radar.
Yeah....12 hour days kind of put blogging on the back burner....and yes I agree..... pretty rude of me.

Seriously though..... I just couldn't find the time to multi task with this one.  

Partly because Cari and Greg had just moved in their new house and there was no furniture or internet.  More on that later:)

We left Atlanta on Monday and got to the house around 5 pm..... placing most of the furniture that evening.

Let's start from the beginning....

This little beauty.....

Which got a coat of BM Kendall Charcoal.  New railing and garage doors.  Replaced the funky window over the garage....

House numbers will be on the stained wood wall.



The stairway....before


A little Cole and Sons wallpaper always helps:)

Looking down....

Before image as you came up the stairs....

The wall was opened up about 4 feet since the doorway to the kitchen was so small.  There was a lot of discussion about whether to just remove this whole wall to open up the kitchen and family room....but we really needed it for the fridge and some cabinets.

Added a little shiplap to the wall....

There just wasn't anything left to go on this wall so I left it clean....#eyeneedsaplacetorest



After cabinets were removed!

All Kitchenaid appliances.

I can't believe the sink was not under the window??


Custom iron brackets and the butcher block shelves are from Ikea.  The light is from Hinkley
Rug is from Surya.

It really turned out to be quite a nice size kitchen.
The cabinets and countertops [raw concrete] are from Ikea 


Wider opening and painted all the doors which I will get the color for you!  I can't remember right now.  #braindead 

My favorite Grohe K7 faucet.

Hello cute little mini watermelons....:)

Hardware from


This is your basic classic kitchen....timeless!

Well?  You likey?

So this is what we saw every evening when we came home...

They moved about 7 miles outside of Boulder....and their are 11 cows a few feet from their property!

And they did not want to take any of their old furniture with them....because they want new!  Ahhhhh.....youth.

Of course there is more and we will get to it soon...I promise I won't leave you hanging:)

Thanks for hanging with me.

No wonder you are pooped! Absolutely amazing transformation.

Mary said...

Looks awesome! Do they ever push back on some of your ideas?

Peggy said...

Great transformation- so light and airy. Love the color of the hardwood floors. Did you strip and restrain and if so what color? Looking to update my red oak hardwood floors.

debbie said...

puuuuuuuuuuur perfection! One question, why the small gap between the cabinets and ceiling in the kitchen?

gina said...

Another amazing transformation!

debra @ 5th and state said...

so I played a game here.......what would I do, then scroll.....& see what you do. I "lost" every time!
that exterior is smashing and only gets better from there
well done!!!


Lisa said...

Exceptional job!! Thanks for sharing!

Gail Storti said...

I knew it would be fabulous and I was so right! What an amazing transformation and so modern and classic, it will never go out of style. Love the exterior changes but the new owners might want to plant a nice hedge to hide the neighbors turquoise jewel! Congrats on a wonderful job and I’m so excited to see the rest! Boulder, here I come!

just about perfect, including the cows. love the way they compliment the decor! I might have added a built in niche above the stove for oil and spices but otherwise it is so nice. Love how you upgraded the exterior!

JJ said...

What a beautiful update!!! What light fixture did you use for over the stairs??? I see that old light fixture everywhere!

DeeDee said...

Is there going to be crown molding above the cabinets?Great transformation love the outside color!

Mary Ann Pickett said...

Great Job, Sherry. THANK you for all the photos. So fun to see.

Bonnie G. said...

What an amazing transformation! I can't wait for the rest ….annnnd, speaking of rest I hope you get some! Oh, the exterior looks fab, especially that porch rail.

Unknown said...

Source on the exterior lights, pretty please? I've been searching everywhere for something similar that doesn't project too far out from the house and these look like perfection!

Fantastic update! Where did you get the exterior railing? So cool I need some and haven’t found anything I like, this would be ideal.

What color paint did you use on the walls and doors? Thanks!!

Vicki said...

How did you paint the brick, i.e.: what steps and products did you use?

Thank you,
