She visited my house and had started reading my blog and decided I was the one to help her with this house, so I said yes, I would.
And I told her I would blog about it, which she is excited about.
They are usually more energy efficient, which is especially important in colder climates.
She bought it from her mother and has never made it her own.
She got married 6 years ago to David and now she has a partner to help her with updates to this charming house.
It’s in dire need of being introduced to the 21st century and that’s where I came in.
Andrea has promised to do what I ask her to do and I think it’s going to be a fun project. One of the first projects they are tackling is adding board and batten below the chair rail here in the hallway. I’m going to be looking at fabrics with her to update some furniture and bedding. It’s a very small space and I know how that is, since my master bath is really tiny too. David found this pretty wood dining room set at an estate sale recently. All that wallpaper and window treatments will be coming down soon. Look closely and you can see a mirrored backsplash, which is also coming out. Andrea had painted it this darker gray color, but when she said she wanted to start in here, I started thinking of a color that might work. When I told her we were painting the brick, her eyes got really big and she said, we ARE? That sofa is going and we are going to recover those wingback chairs. The walkway from the garage is right in the middle of the room so we have to leave a traffic path. We are going to reuse some things in here and get these chairs recovered and make this room so cute and functional too.
We are going to try to do it on a budget as much as possible, so I’m not sure that there will be any tearing out the kitchen cabinets or any of that, but new countertops in the kitchen and bathroom will happen eventually. David, her handy husband, will be doing much of the work as they move through the house. We will start with the inside of the house and hopefully move to the outside to give it some updates too. Back to the foyer and hallway, now we’ll head to the formal living room. It’s very nice wood, so we are going to work with it and recover the chair seats. She would love to rip out the carpet in the living room and dining room and continue with the oak flooring all in here too. There are mirrors in several locations around the house, one here in the dining room. Not a great pic, but this is a really pretty china cabinet. We are thinking that her hubby will build a banquette seat in the window in that corner. Lots of things to decide on, but she’d like to keep these cabinets since they are all wood. These appliances are all original and she’s going to replace those as well, the oven and cooktop.1950’s finest! So, they got busy and bought the paint I suggested, Revere Pewter, by Ben Moore and got it all painted out, brick and all. We’ll add a rug back in here eventually when we get colors figured out. Revere Pewter is such a gorgeous color, now I want to use it somewhere. There’s also a nice pool in the backyard right outside these windows, so that’s an extra bonus.
