Chesterfield Cottage Reveal: Part 1 {Exterior, Living Room, and Bathroom}

file_001

For the past 8 weeks or so, we’ve been working on a project that we’ve been calling Chesterfield Cottage.  You may have seen progress photos on Instagram or Facebook (if you missed them, you can check them out here!).  We got it on the market this past weekend, and guess what? We received a first day offer and are in contract!  Now that we have some time to breathe, we’re excited to share all of the fun details and before & after photos...

Before & After: An Updated Take on Black & White

16

Welcome back, friends. Guess what? We finally finished our #historictownhome renovation!  (If you follow us on Instagram, you probably knew that already, but stick with us ok?) One of our favorite makeovers in the house was the bathroom.  Not only was it small and awkward (it’s just 6×6!), but it was also the only one in the house. A few of its many quirks included oversized sconces that prevented the door from fully opening, a toilet that almost touched the...

DIY No-Sew Drop Cloth Bed Skirt

No Sew Drop Cloth Bedskirt

Hello again, friends. Two posts in one week!  I think this is a record for us. We finally had a chance to catch up on life after being super busy the last few months.  It’s hard to believe that we’ve renovated 4 bathrooms and a house this year!  We finished our Pearl St. bathroom renovation in February, then bought a historic townhome in German Village that we renovated and furnished, and just finished remodeling a client’s dated bathroom last week, too.  Even though...

Our clients purchased their beautiful home earlier this year, but there was one room that needed some love: the upstairs bathroom.  It’s the...

New Property Tour: The Historic Townhome

GV7

Well friends, we have a new property!  We weren’t actively looking, but when this one came up a few months ago in the fantastic location that it is, we had to jump on it. We have shared a few sneak peaks on Instagram using the hashtag #historictownhome, and are excited to give you the full tour on the blog. The property is a 3 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom (soon to be 2.5!) end-unit townhome that we’re hoping to renovate, furnish, and share...

Happy Anniversary to Us!

IMG_1353

Four years ago (has it really been four years?!), Bryan and I got married in the little historic city of Ponce, Puerto Rico. We had only visited the island once before with a very special friend, and fell in love with the Plaza, the old cathedral dating back to 1670, and the historic mansion, Castillo Serralles, overlooking it all. Neither of us had any ties to Puerto Rico, but after that visit, we were hooked and knew it would be the...

Pearl St. Master Suite Reno – Part 1: The Bathroom

Master Suite Reno: The Bathroom

Update: Our bathroom renovation was featured on House Beautiful and Country Living! Hello again! It’s been a long time. A really long time.  For the past few months, Bryan and I have been spending all of our time on the Pearl St. master suite renovation.  Instagram has been the only thing that has saved us from completely dropping off of the face of the earth!  But guess what?  We’re finally finished, which means we get to share fun before & after photos with you....

We Were Featured On Houzz!

After: Houzz Feature!

Big news!  Our design for Brick Duplex (Side #1) was featured on Houzz!  It was such an honor to be noticed by a design site that we refer to almost daily for inspiration.  Adrienne DeRosa did such a wonderful job capturing the character of the home and our design style.

Hello there!  Join us on Instagram to keep up with our latest project updates, news, and to see more photos that haven’t made their way onto the blog yet.  We’ve been tracking our progress on this renovation with hashtag #thepearlstproject, so it’s easy to see all the good stuff in one spot. Lately, we’ve been spending most of our time on The Pearl St. Project.  It’s a 1900 duplex located just south of Downtown Columbus that needs some love.  We’ve been tackling...

DIY $102 Fireplace Facelift

$102 Fireplace Facelift

Now that kitchen #1 is operational at the Pearl St. duplex, we’ve been focusing on doing low cost, high impact projects to make the rest of the house feel less like a construction zone.  We’re fortunate that this property has been well maintained and doesn’t have major pest issues like our last property did.  That was not fun.  In this side of the duplex, every room needs something, but it doesn’t have to be a complete overhaul if we don’t want...
