Stephanie’s face lift, tummy tuck, lipo…. and the list goes on

So here we are, the moment Jd and I have been waiting for, the completion of Stephanie. She was a real treat at the start with her little foundation issue.

Remember that?!

  Look for categories on the blog and click ‘our project homes’. You will find more of the exterior information on there.

So since we are all done I took some after pics and want to share them with you! I staged just the kitchen and bathrooms but not the living and bedrooms;)

Here we go, short and sweet.

We said goodbye to that built in hutch and opened up the wall to the living area.

speaking of that hutch, here is a closer look.

I love this little farmhouse light above the sink we added

We opted for floor to ceiling cabinets

We added some open shelving to display dishes etc.

I like the brackets on these

Now onto the stairway that leads up to three bedrooms and a playroom.

We added a sliding barn door to the pantry. The original door was falling apart. Jd repurposed the sliding barn hardware from a old barn we knocked down on the property and the door was a old door we found in the attic that Jd stripped and refinished.

The back entry before

Well it was actually a back entry/stairwell to the michigan basement.

To utilize space we added a floor door. I am not sure if its a thing but we decided to call it that. It is so much more efficient. Since most people who have michigan basements usually only go down in them to either check utilities or for storage we decided to use the area as extra space for a office/craft area.

Now whenever you need to head downstairs you can just lift up your floor door but in the meantime you can do crafts with the kids. All it needs is a desk and some chairs.

Now to the bathroom

Master bath before,

it was actually a bedroom but we really wanted a master suite so we closed to original door to the room and added a entrance to the bathroom through the bedroom.

Jd installed this tile shower which turned out beautiful.

IMG_1245

For extra storage we added some more cabinetry.

IMG_1269

You can see there is a doorway that leads to the master walk in closet/laundry.

laundry

We have our laundry in our master closet and we love it.

Upstairs hallway before

The ceiling was really low but find out about how we discovered the beautiful barrel ceiling HERE.

We added electric at the top of the stairwell to hang this antique chandelier I found at Habitat For Humanity.

Now for the upstairs playroom. I wish I had a before but this was actually just all studs and I never really got a good pic of this space. It was really hard to walk in this room before we played sub flooring down. I am glad we finished off this space. It will serve as a great play or storage space for whoever buys Stephanie.

IMG_1342

We added cable up here incase someone wanted to make it a play/video/tv room for kiddos.

IMG_1343

I love how you can see the chandelier through this window. My kids have played many legos in this room while Jd and I put in late nights. They think its so fun with the tiny door, its like their own little apartment.

IMG_1344

There is 3 bedroom upstairs here is a couple before and after pics of these spaces. Two of the rooms look like the previous owners might have tried to start some demo work but in the end we just had to redo all the drywall in these rooms because it wasn’t the way we prefer it to be done.

    Wow – this came out fantastic- I love all of your design decisions!! I had to chuckle when I saw your “antique chandelier”. I just removed the same exact one (shiny brass) from my foyer ( it’s waiting to go to Goodwill) and replaced it with a more farmhouse looking one. Yours does look better with the brass painted, and I actually like it. Now I am thinking I might rehang mine, after I tweak it, in another area of my home.

      I love it! I actually didn’t even have to paint my chandelier, it came that way, which was a major bonus! I would definently paint yours though, it always amazes me what paint can do. Happy painting!

    Love the remodel you did !! Can you let me know the paint colors if possible?? Thanks

      baltic gray is the main all over white color of the house,
      lifes a whirlwind is the blue,
      padlock gray is the lighter gray,
      clifside gray is the dark gray.
