  • Farmhouse Hall Bathroom, We bought an old farmhouse with 5 bedrooms and 1 bathroom upstairs, and decided to turn one of the small bedrooms into a hall bath with a laundry area attached. 
Jerusalem gold tumbled marble 12x12 floor tiles set on the diagonal, oil-rubbed bronze wall mounted fixtures, rustic stacked stone, and dark mahogany cabinetry combined gave me the modern Italian/Spanish vibe I was going for. I fell in love with the rustic mosaic stone and created a back splash behind the vessel sinks. Custom vanity to make use of every inch of wall space.
Keeping it clean with white sink basins, but chose to do top mounted bowls to give a nod to the old-fashioned charm of nightstand wash bowls. Kept costs down by ordering the basins and fixtures at online outlets, mirrors and hardware at closeout, and pendants from big-box stores. My awesome hubby  did all the tile work, although cutting on the diagonal is a lot of work. , Bathrooms

  • Farmhouse Kitchen Remodel, We bought a circa 1790 farm house with a few acres to keep our horses.  After adding a new bathroom and renovating some rooms on the second floor, we had to tackle the small galley kitchen.  The 70's kitchen lacked counter space, storage and room to move around. We knocked out the wall between the kitchen and dining room to create a large eat-in kitchen. In keeping with the historic elements of our home, we chose classic style cabinetry, soapstone counter top, and cupboard latches. Walnut furniture topped with Calcutta marble create a large island for a cook top where family and friends gather. To update the space we chose stainless steel appliances, chrome hardware and lots of recessed lighting.
Our personalities were added to the space with modern crystal pendants [bling for me!] and chrome and leather stools [Wall Street masculine for the hubby]. The random width mosaic marble tile back splash completes the look. We saved lots of money by doing most of the work ourselves. We found the hardware online at closeout prices, the appliances were found at 'scratch and dent' outlets, and we've installed the lighting, back splash, appliances, windows, cabinets, hardware, baseboard and crown molding ourselves., Kitchens

  • out with the old, in with the new, We took an outdated 1980's kitchen and brought it up to 2012.  We utilized and incorporated the full space of the kitchen verses the original layout.  We started by totally gutting the kitchen.  The location of the free standing microwave/stove/oven was moved to where the refrigerator previously stood, and a built in microwave/convection oven was installed.  An angled wall was constructed and allowed for the installation of a stovetop and island hood.  Upper cabinets blocking the view to the family room were removed.  The built in desk was removed.  Plumbing was installed to allow for the water line for the icemaker and a small sink to bring filtered water for coffeemaker.  Pantry cabinets and a coffee bar along with a full size refrigerator and full size freezer now make better use of that space.  LED lighting was put in under the cabinets and the can lights were converted to LED lighting as well making the kitchen more energy efficient.  Granite countertops and a complimentary tile backsplash finish off the modern look along with stainless steel appliances. All of this was work was done by the two of us!    Granite was the only thing we could not do ourselves!!, Kitchens

  • From dysfunctional to functional and beautiful, Our coastal 1925 cottage had been added onto several times.  Unfortunately the kitchen  was pieced together with shotty workmanship and bits and pieces of left over materials.  The entire floor structure, electrical,  plumbing and windows had to be replaced which added quite a bit to our estimated costs.  4 months later we have a warm, cozy, rustic space with just enough modern appeal.  Truly a place now to gather with family and friends.  On to the next project......, Kitchens

  • casual chic dining, This room is the first one you see when you enter my house so I wanted it to be beautiful.  I love chandeliers, and I love dark woods.  I went monochromatic and started with the chair fabric, then went on from there.  I know the chandelier is too low, but I hung it before I added the crystals and they were very long!!  I just haven't had the desire to move everything and get it raised... maybe soon :), Dining Rooms

  • Small Bath Oasis Transformation, Our "basic builder" bathroom previously consisted of a 5x8 space with your basic, boring white vanity, white tub, and white cheap-o tile, and boring wall paper.  We were inspired by several of the bathrooms we saw on this website plus many HGTV shows that gave us the inspiration we needed.  We wanted a contemporary spa feel with modern amenities.  Although our space is small we took advantage of the high 9' ceiling by running the tile all the way to the ceiling and installing 4" recessed lighting.  This really draws your eye up!  We used 18x18 tiles on the wall, 6x6 on the shower floor, and a great 1" tile around the vanity and toilet.  It's actually a mix of glass tile and slate.  The vanity, sink, and faucet were purchased on-line and the mirror was cut locally to fit the exact space.

We are thrilled at the transformation and can't believe how much bigger our 5x8 space now appears!

ADDED INFO-- Thank you all for the kind comments, we are amazed at the feedback!  Thank You!  Several questions have been asked about the cost and materials, so here's the info....

COST-- We loved the comment about estimating the cost at $40,000.  Actually, it cost $8,000 for everything.  

DESIGNER-- Someone asked if we hired a professional designer.  Nope.  We are addicted to HGTV and picked up lots of tips and ideas from the show (esp. Candice, Vern, Angelo and David Bromstad) and this website.  We purchased all of the materials ourselves.  We did some of the work ourselves and hired a great contractor for the tough stuff.

FAUCET-- Purchased at ExpressDecor.com for $139

VANITY-- It's a Decolav vanity (5510-ES) that includes the sink.  EveryVesselSink.com for $900

TILE-- All purchased at Expo (Isn't it a shame that they are all closing!).  1x1 Glass Tile/Slate were the most expensive of all of the materials!  $32/sf.  From Oceanside Glass Tile (glasstile.com) it's Geologie High Desert.  The 18x18 shower wall tile is from Daltile (5202 Golddust) @ $2/sf.  The 6x6 shower floor tile is CTI Tile (Rex Shabui, Charcoal Black).

MIRROR- cut locally and custom frame from Aaron Brothers.

PAINT--  Sherwin-Williams (SW6078 Realist Beige).

Thanks again for all of the kind remarks!  If we can do it-- so can you!, Bathrooms

  • Modern / Industrial Kitchen Remodel, We started by painting the walls.  After 3 attempts at trying to find the right color we finally settled on Benjamin Moore-Kingsport Gray. We moved on to painting the cabinets black and changing out the hardware with pulls we bought from Ebay Store "Hinges and More".  We retrofit the kitchen sink cabinet to fit a new farmhouse sink.  We added under cabinet and overhead lighting.  We hired a fabricator to install the Giallo Beach granite we picked out for the countertop and the Bedrosian Ice Crackle MGICG2 Mosaic Glass tile backsplash.  I ordered the island/table from the IKEA - Udden Console.  By removing the backsplash on the console I was able to repurpose, what is meant to be a cabinet base, for additional workspace and seating., Kitchens
