Recent Highlights April

Love all of these colors!! Most recent projects!

“Emmett, what are you doing with my paint stirrers?”

“I’m a king, and these are my swords!”

I’ve been busy playing and enjoying my last few weeks with my half day Preschooler before the Summer Loven goes full blast. August he starts Kindergarten, full day, and life as I know it will undoubtedly change. I will have all three boys in school and an empty house. Talk about excitment and sadness!!

The good thing for you, is I will be able to schedule more jobs and really set off on Second Chance Charms. The past 7 years has been wonderful! I have all of you to thank for that!! You have allowed me to be a stay at home mother while helping pay a bill or two. Thank you!

Home Remodeling

I seriously don’t even know where to start with this blog post. I want to show you what I have been working on and the big changes we have made, but like all good things, it takes time to get everything perfect. The major work is completed, and all that is left is decorating, furnishing and fine tuning.

With that being said, I’ll show you some before photos and after photos of our home renovation!

Here are a few photos of the process. Let me just say, I am so thrilled to be at the point we are now. A few times it was hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

When you take a look at the after you will see we replaced the flooring with Wood Tile from Emser, the Mokuzai collection: Color Daku. Added quartz countertops by Daltile, Cinder Storm. Installed and painted new baseboards. Painted the walls in Sherwin-Williams Useful Grey. Painted the ceiling. Refinished the kitchen cabinets in Sherwin-Williams Hide White. Kitchen island painted in Sherwin-Williams Black Fox. Added kitchen hardware. Added ivory subway tiles backsplash by Pure with white groute. Along with a new deep sink, I of course treated myself to a new faucet!

As the process went underway in the house, I refinished a few of my own pieces to have them coincide with our new color scheme. My little coffee bar area is one of my favorite spots!

The front family room, and backpack wall got it’s own makeover as well. We are still furnishing it. We took the previous couch to the dump, but on the back wall to the left my hutch sits there and got a facelift as well.

We just finished painting the stairwell and half bath. Downstairs is almost complete and once everything is how it should be I will share more photos. We still want to change out the fans and replace the kitchen lighting with different pendants.

Thanks for looking!

I am in love with the curves of this piece! I found her a few months back during one of my garage sale days and put her up over In the Studio for customization. A returning client of mine purchased her and wanted this buffet console to match a dining table and chairs I did for her back in 2014.
