Hopefully you were as productive this week, as we were! We made great progress at Old Savannah and even allowed ourselves time to find another property. But let’s start with our ‘first born’, Old Savannah.
This week, we ordered bathroom vanities (which will be in within 2 weeks). We also had the exterior of the house painted. We converted from brick with blue trim & shutters, to brick with white trim & black shutters. Oh what a difference this makes-as I mentioned in my last post, you can see the moldings now!!
It wasn’t just about the exterior, this week. Our hardwoods arrived this week. You may be asking why we needed hardwoods after unveiling the beautiful white oak under the green shag carpet? Well if you recall, there was tile in the foyer & that gorgeous low pile carpet in the kitchen/breakfast room.
We are making a cohesive flooring statement in the house and converting both of these spaces to hardwoods. This will update the look and help the flow in the spaces around. This house is going to look fabulous!!!
We hope you have a great weekend and look forward to giving you the latest updates, next week!!!
…goes a long way!!! We started ‘slapping some paint on the old barn’ this weekend. It is amazing how much difference paint can make.
If you recall, the shutters & trim at Old Savannah were both painted the same dusty blue.
As you see, in the photo above, the trim sortof fades away. You would never know there was beautiful dental molding framing Old Savannah. Moldings are such a crowning feature, you want to show it off…not cover them up!
Now with a little paint…our 👑 sparkles!!
Stay tuned, this week, hardwoods are going in to the kitchen & foyer (hardwoods in the whole house!).
Any thoughts on a stain???
The original homeowner is out of Old Savannah & what is the first thing we did? We started tearing stuff up!!
Demo is so much fun and exciting!!! This is the time when you can let loose and not worry (too much) about damaging anything . . . it’s coming out, right? And you never know what you may uncover??
Shiny & New
We definitely discovered some unexpected things during this process. Remember the shag carpet (aka ‘indoor green lawn’)? We couldn’t resist the temptation to go ahead and peel at back the ‘green lawn’!! We just needed a peak!! We were just as pleased as we had anticipated being!
Remember this sight?
…well look what we found underneath!!!!
Look at these solid oak floors!?!? What finish should we use???
Wallpaper Woes . . .
The dining room, kitchen, and hall bath all had walls covered in wallpaper. You can imagine the cloud of dread looming over us.
Our initial concern was the age of the paper and that we would not only remove the wallpaper, but take Sheetrock, as well. So imagine the relief we felt when we started to remove the dining room paper in full sheets! Sheer Joy!!!
Now lets hope the other rooms come off as easy!!!!
