#makeovermonday / part 2 – renovation reveal of the brown house with all the walls

the daily Starr makeover monday blog

Today’s #makeovermonday is part 2 of our latest renovation project – titled “brown house with lots of weird walls.”

This one turned out soooo good! Here’s the outside.

We didn’t do much to the exterior of this home – just a fresh coat of black paint on the shutters, new door with red paint, replaced the columns on the front porch and updated the landscaping.

Let’s go inside.

Remember we had the tiny little foyer room when you walked in the front door? To the left you entered the living room and to the right, the dining room. Zero natural light – so dark and dreary.

We took all those walls out and now here is the entry area.

All of the trim was painted white, new flooring and new lighting. We added this new front door with a window to give more natural light leading into the kitchen.

This is the welcoming view when walking in the front door now! What a CHANGE!

The living room is a bit different now. We have an open concept, which appeals to more buyers currently.

Let’s go into the kitchen now.

After

This kitchen features all new cabinets, granite countertops, tile backsplash and appliances. Brian’s mom helped us to create the custom lower cabinets that extend around to create an eat-in bar area. She can build anything!!

The dining area is right off the kitchen.

Before

After

We kept the built-in cabinet in the corner and painted all of the trim and moldings white. It totally changed the look of everything.

Next, let’s go to the bathrooms.

This was the Master bath before –

We have all new tile flooring, a new vanity, new hardware, and lighting. The shower was painted and we closed off the door access from the living area to leave only the access from the master bedroom. This gives more privacy and space to make this bathroom feel roomy.

The master bedroom got a facelift too.

Before

After

The two secondary baths were updated.

Before

We have all new flooring, a new vanity and hardware and a painted tub/shower.

Here is the Jack & Jill bath before –

After

Same here – new flooring, vanity, hardware, and the existing shower was fine as-is.

This house might be one of my favorite projects we’ve worked on yet. I’m ready for the next one!

Happy Monday and hopefully everyone got to watch the eclipse (at least via streaming).

  1. I love this house. Who “painted” your tub/showers? By paint do you mean ‘reglazing’? I have been trying to find a reglazing person since Dec. Haywood won’t use any one whose work he can’t go and personally check out. I am ready to let anyone do it!

    • We used an acrylic paint you can buy at Sherwin Williams. It comes in a can that you can brush on or a spray. We did the brush on. It is a kit called Tile Doc. The kit costs about $45 and it took on average 2 kits per bath. Check it out! We have great contacts if you want someone to give a quote but you guys may be able to do this yourself!
