Our first flip!

For years, we've wanted to flip a house and we finally decided to do it! 
Our first flip needed to be small and somewhat simple, since it was our first go-around. Unfortunately, I didn't take the best before and after pics, so this will have to do :)

The kitchen was very small, but with a few changes we knew we could easily update it as well as open it up. There were a few things we needed to get rid of altogether: the upper center cabinets, the outdated drop ceiling, and the faux brick back splash.

Here it is after. By sticking with neutral colors on the cabinets, walls, backsplash, floor tile, and countertops, it created a much more open flow throughout the kitchen and dining area.

 Here's another angle...

The back side of the bar was wrapped in bead board, and finished with a baseboard trim. Along the top of the cabinets where the drop ceiling had once been, was finished with crown moulding.
We also replaced all the appliances with stainless steel.

 Flooring before...


We stuck to the same process on the bathrooms too.





The basement was actually very spacious and just needed a few minor changes.
We painted the basement throughout, and refinished the plywood kitchenette/bar area.



The other side of the bar...ugh :(

This was definitely the most challenging. Since we were at the end of our budget, we had to get creative with what we had left to spend. We were able to save quite a bit of money by making our own countertops. The top is stained birch wood with trim, and the lower half was a kit we bought at Home Depot, where we painted layers with sponges, and finished with a clear coat. 

The living room was in great shape with a new fireplace, so all we did in here was paint.



All together, this house took about 6 weeks. After the first day on the market, we ended up getting two offers...YAY!! Let the bidding wars begin!

Old English Farmhouse Tables

I haven't had much time to blog lately because we've been over-the-top SWAMPED with work...
Not that it's a bad thing, just trying to keep up with it all has been a bit like spinning plates :)
Anyhoo, we finally took the leap to shipping our farm furniture nationally, and we've had a fantastic response. We're still trying to figure out a few of the minor details, but things are progressing well!

The newest item to our collection is an Old English farm table, with beautiful large 5" turned legs.
You know how I feel about pretty turned legs!

Well, this particular set is headed to New York at the end of the week, so I had to get a few shots of it before we shipped it out. Wishing I could just keep it!

This is our barn wood finish, which I'm reeeeally loving these days ;)

Have a great weekend!!

New finishes to the farmhouse collection

We've added a couple of new finishes to our farmhouse collection that we are pretty fond of :)
This is one of our head board/foot board sets finished in Charcoal Grey. 
This color resembles the patina of a primitive love LOVE this finish! 

 And this table top is finished in a new color called Jocobean, which is very rich and dark. 
I just love how the character in the grain comes to life once the stain is applied, 
and each piece of furniture has it's own unique look. 

We are also currently working on a kitchen island design, and toying with the idea of offering chunky turned legs as another option to our Provincial Farmhouse Tables. For more information, hop on over to the Farmhouse Collection! :)

New item for sale

It's been a while since we've finished any items to sell, but I've had this beautiful French Country queen sized headboard patiently waiting to get an overhaul. We decided to keep it simple in antique white, with a touch of distressing. It's also finished off in a satin lacquer finish for protection and durability. Available now for $200.

dressing up the shop

A couple of years ago, we outgrew our small workspace and decided to build a workshop that sits at the side of our backyard. For a long time it was a bit of an eyesore and pretty boring. I'd still like to paint it a different color, but we did build some shutters and a garden box to add some character. 
...pardon the plastic in the windows :)

While out shopping the other day I spied some fun metal decor at Hobby Lobby that would fit well, and get a nice rusty-patina over's not a huge change, but definitely more homey :)

 Like I said, it's not much...but it's little details like this that make me a happy gal!

Early American Writing Desk

We've added a new item to our farmhouse collection :)

It's a replica of an early american writing desk, with aged wood and turned legs....
two of my most favorite things! 

This piece is finished in Strawflower w/walnut glaze, and Driftwood on the top.

Full details of this desk as well as the rest of our farmhouse collection can be seen here.
