Home remodel

Chloe's room before

Chloe's Room with carpet out and ceilings painted in a soft pink


Chloe's Room with dark cherry hard wood floors in

Chloe's Sitting Area
Tea time at Chloe's
Chloe's bed that was purchased in France and painted a chippy white

Our garden house-BEFORE painting

The inside after decorations

The inside-it has electricity-so even in the winter we use a heater and can still play cards
Our garden cottage-AFTER painting-it is called the "CRAB SHACK"

Downstairs flooring BEFORE demolishion

The floor all torn out

The walls were painted in a sage green and yellow/khaki color

The newly laid floors and painted walls

Door treatments were added and frames with our black and white vacation photos added (the base boards have since been completed)

This was the downstairs bath prior to demolition; everything was bwn/orange

Scott had a good time tearing it up!

Our handyman Rudi, finishing the beadboard

New ceramic flooring

The new bath with pedestal sink (the ceiling and molding has since been finished)

The Gortner's dining area prior to the move (New Year's Day)

The walls were first painted a creamy yellow and the plaster scraped off the wall for a smooth surface

We cut our own boxes for wainscoat and used montage kleber (wall glue) to hang them

One view of the almost completed project-we still added a chair molding and high base boards

Another view of the room with molding boxes (still need to add pics with molding and base board)
