Episode 8! Wow this transformation was so much fun. I’m sure you will hear me say that about all these houses because that is just flat out the truth! For this home, the young family we were working with had outgrown the space and needed a home that they could grow into. They tried selling it on their own with no luck! We were so thankful they trusted us to transform their home because the outcome was truly something special!
The wood floors and wood burning fireplace were like instant inspiration for me when I entered the home. I could see it had so much potential and I couldn’t wait to make use of all its adorable features. I am a complete sucker for a home with character!
We found the gorgeous acacia wood countertops at Floor & Decor and they were by far my favorite piece to add into this little home. I saw them and felt like they were perfect for the craftsman style we were going for. They require a little bit of upkeep, but that’s nothing a little bit of sanding and mineral oil can’t fix.
If you watched this episode you know that this room felt super off balance before we got to it because of where the light fixture was hanging. We were able to add a stylish chandelier and move the light over to the true center of the room to give it the balanced look it so desperately needed.
We got a lot of comments about the tile floor in this bathroom. We love it for its modern look and subtle vintage charm. It was truly the finishing touch that completed this bathroom’s look.
The most challenging part of this entire renovation, and what took a large chunk of our budget, was the removal of the large tree that was destroying the driveway. We knew it was essential to get the tree removed to avoid future problems with the home. Even better, after the work was completed, there was room for two cars to park instead of just one! This is a huge selling point for future buyers.
Tune in next week for another incredible reveal 9pm/8c on HGTV!
