Here’s Part 2 of the beach house tour. If you missed Part 1 you can go
Now here’s where we get really creative and I mean
As I mentioned in my previous post, the owners were on a very tight budget because they weren’t sure if they would be here for just a season or maybe two. So naturally no major work was performed just a cosmetic update.
I’ll share the before and after pictures first, then I’ll explain the creativity behind the scenes. It was both a challenge and fun working within the these budget parameters.
So stick around you’ll want to hear what we did:)
This is the before picture of the lower level family room
Guest Bath After
The dark paneling was kept and painted white. How did we stay on budget with this project? None of this furniture is new. Nothing. This furniture was the previous owners and it was cleaned, painted and recovered. It totally has that beachy, palm beach feel doesn’t it?
Why keep the furniture?
1) The owner really thought this was going to be a temporary fix and this room is so awkward if we purchased new upholstery for this room we couldn’t be sure if it would fit or would work in a new space. 2) We had a vision that if we re-purposed the furniture it would give it a cool vibe and make the space interesting, unique and so fun! 3) Budget. That’s the real reason:)
So the table. A table, magazine rack and lamp all in one.
Gotta love the practicality and the throw back, right?
The sofa cushions were re-covered in an indoor/outdoor fabric from Trina Turk for Schumacher. Since it wasn’t a complete re-upholstery job it was inexpensive to re-purpose these pieces. And I designed the throw pillows to break up the mod pattern on the sofas.
The table. It weighs a ton and it has that beachy, palm-beach vibe. Why mess with it?
Here is the family room again.
