Look at her. Ain't she a beaut?
Say hello to our latest completed project.
This Señorita was built in 1928 and we purchased her from
Margaret, the sweetest lady who had lived there since the early 70's.
I knew the second I saw this little house that I wanted to strip the
paint off that wood on the front porch and stain it to add some warmth.
We painted the exterior Swiss Coffee (duh) and stained the wood trim
around the windows. We added the black fabric awning to soften the front a bit.
We left all the original succulents because... they're just cool!
The front door is painted Lagoon by Sherwin Williams.
This house is 1 mile from the beach, so I'm thinkin that blue works!
A little paint and some updated tile was all that fireplace needed:)
This entire house was covered in carpet. We gave the old floors underneath a shot, but
sadly (VERY SADLY) we weren't able to salvage them :( :( :(
Honestly my heart still hurts over it.
This Schoolhouse Electric chandelier (although it looks a little wonky in the pic above)
is just the most awesome thing! I bought it to use a few houses ago, but it
never worked out in any of them.
It finally found it's home:)
The original little tiny breakfast nook to the right of the stove
is now the laundry room with a door to the back yard.
The black metal hood-
Ryne made the hood shell out of wood, then we had a sheet metal guy
cut the parts and Ryne installed them and added the metal rivets
and painted it wrought iron black.
Then there's that tile....
Oh my I love it.
I just spent an insane amount of time looking for the link for it,
but canny findy. I blame this hellish cold I got after playing nurse
to Rog and Ryne last week...
I know the brand is Merola and I ordered it from Home Depot.

This Señorita lasted about 2.5 seconds before someone snatched her up.
She's pending already!
