"We love the graceful engineering that the era's style of furniture encompasses.""One of our dear friends is an art dealer, and he advised us on most of the art in our house.
He has told us to find things we love that also have significance to them," says Brown.
Opening up the kitchen to the dining room turned a once solely functional room into a central hub.
Rather than a traditional tile backsplash, the designers chose to install custom concrete tile by Arto Brick in an eye-catching geometric pattern.
DIYing really is the best way to express your unique style!
One of my favorite places to see the DIY creativity is in kitchen islands.
We all have different wants and needs for our kitchen islands, and sometimes builder-grade and manufactured islands are not even close to what we want, or how we want it to look. Our guest today (and her husband) built this beautiful custom island as part of her 1960's ranch kitchen renovation: Hi, there! Over at my blog, I rant about DIY projects, junk decor, thrifty finds, crafty creations and other decorating dilemmas.
When I'm not trying to keep my kid from climbing out of her circus ring or making sure Grunt Labor's shirts are taken to the dry cleaners, so I get out of ironing, I can be found with a paintbrush in hand. You can find a round-up of my best furniture makeovers here.
To open up the kitchen, as well as the dining room and living area, we knocked down a couple walls. For the legs, we used salvaged porch columns from a local architectural salvage store.Remodelaholic is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Cassity started Remodelaholic with her husband, Justin, to share their love for knocking out walls together.Since then, Remodelaholic has become a great community and resource for all those wanting to know how to make their builder-grade home BEAUTIFUL on a budget!"There is something about our kitchen that truly feels like you could spend the whole day there," says Brown."The doors open out to the pool, so when we entertain, our guests always feel like they are engaged in the party, even if they’re outdoors."Brown and Monchamp installed a massive 50-foot glass wall along the back of the home to brighten things up.
By knocking down the walls, it made room for an island, which is my most prized possession in the room. It is five feet long, a little over two feet wide and right at about three feet in height. We made a frame of 2x4s to go around the columns at the top and also used 2x4s to connect the columns at the base. The bottom shelf is made from salvaged barn wood that came from my great grandfather's farm. After the countertop was installed, (we just got the island measured for the same countertop the cabinets have, which is Silestone in Bianco River), we added decorative trim around the top to hide the screws.
