fun friday {interior design}


OMG... Now here's a really fun transformation to show you all! I can't stop staring at this old photo... You know it's a bad accident and you shouldn't look,  but you can't pull your eyes away from it. This little beach cottage had so much funky/weird kind of love poured into it that it made you itch {all over}. Talk about a hodge podge of styles. 

I love taking something old and adding new life to it... Plus, simplifying a style. It's all about coordinating everything!

{before}
I could just see the potential it had... So much potential!

{during}

We removed all of the exterior siding because of major termite damage... Plus, the house needed new windows. Everything had been destroyed from years and years of neglect and being so close to the ocean didn't help either.

 {during}
We put shingles {shingle hardibacker board} on the top and new board and batten on the bottom... We decided to add two different textures to break the long tall box look up. It looked very awkward before from the street.
 {during}
The next step was bringing more depth to the exterior. Adding the trellis and then classic coastal shutters with a front gate really tied it all in and made the house look complete.  
{after}
I absolutely love the finished results. It's so cute... Plus, I can't even tell you how many people stop and make comments on how beautiful the new look is. Shhh I think we need more beach cottages like this one!!! If you ever need to pull your homes exterior together... Call me! I do that as well {wink}. 

So what do you all think? A good before and after project? Please tell all!

  2. Wow! Huge transformation! I would've never though of two different textures on the exterior but it really works. The shutters give it a more cottage feel! Great job!
