It’s not all the time that I visit a client’s remodel and then they call me soon after to sell their lovely home! Zach and Jacey found out they were to be transferred to Dallas for work – but their hard work paid off as their house went pending in no time!
This remodel still has me amazed, and I so enjoyed my visit back to check it out! When Zach and Jacey purchased this home the previous owner had lived there for 50 years – it was in great shape! This allowed Zach and Jacey the freedom to renovate it into their own style without having to worry about structural issues and repairs. They remodeled their main floor: the entryway, living room, and kitchen.
The best find for them was pulling up the carpet to find the original solid wood floors underneath, which is any renovator’s dream. They were a shiny honey oak so Zach and Jacey got busy refinishing them with a white wash process. They turned out beautiful!! The carpet was then taken off of the entry way stairs as well and they were sanded down. The treads along the stairway were painted black along with the wainscoting in the foyer, which added a really nice, sharp contrast. To top it off they added a fun runner down the steps!
In the kitchen they took down some upper cabinets between the kitchen and the dining area and it really opened it up! They painted the back wall black, as well as the lower cabinets on the peninsula. The breakfast bar in the kitchen is a fun hangout space and Zach and Jacey enjoyed many meals there! Jacey painted the tiled backsplash, and they got all new kitchen appliances which really brought everything together. The woodwork and the walls were painted a neutral gray throughout the upper level and new doorknobs were added. Sometimes little things like doorknobs can make a world of difference!
In the master half bath, they got a new vanity, mirror, lights, and towel bars. Once again, it is amazing how much swaps like these can transform a space! In the other two bathrooms, they painted walls and vanities, and updated mirrors and accessories. The paneling in the lower level got a fresh coat of paint, as well as the drop ceiling. This was painted black, which made for a cozy and inviting atmosphere.
With so much effort and hard work, Zach and Jacey never dreamed they would be transferred for work so quickly! But, in the end, a smooth home sale that enables them to move onto their next adventure is the perfect end to this chapter. Blessings to you both as you open the next chapter of your life in Dallas, and I’m so thankful for the honor of getting to know you, walk alongside you as you “unlock new doors”, and for your continued friendship!
