Hellooooo everyone!! I hope everyone is having a fabulous week and if you’re in KC like me, I hope you are staying warm out there!!!
Our Charlotte house was a great project to take on because it was such an easy house compared to some of the others that Dad and I have done. Mainly because it had new HVAC, roof, windows, and electrical. We were mainly cleaning up all of the poor finish work that was done on the house. The footprint of the home was really similar to other bungalow style homes in the area, so I’m really familiar with it! It was fun to take this one from drab and plain to bright and beautiful!
Originally, there was a giant crack in the stair tread. Being that this was a specialty wood, we didn’t want to replace one step and have it mismatch the rest. So, we repaired it by butterfly inlay and I’m so glad we did because it added character and looks as if it’s always belonged 🙂

Changing the flow of the kitchen really changed the look of the entire house. Adding the cute little racks for pots and pans added great storage space while still adding to the aesthetic. I love that we were able to save the brick stack and have that exposed! I also love the waterfall edge on the countertop! I think all of these small details really make this a fantastic, custom kitchen 🙂
We were also able to save a ton of money on these fantastic IKEA cabinets. We found an awesome guy that came in, put together the cabinets and made them look amazing! I’m not familiar with IKEA cabinets, so he was even able to squeeze in extra cabinet space that I originally couldn’t see was there!

Another cool feature about this kitchen is the open shelving. The shelves are actually hidden brackets in the wall made of old cargo lumber off of old railroad cars. How cool!
The laundry room already had the washer and dryer in the house, so we were able to splurge a little and add some amazing wallpaper! I also love that it’s super functional, being that it’s a laundry and mud space all in one!

Thankfully, we were able to open the entry into the dining room from the kitchen! It made the area seem much bigger and now the flow is sooo much better! Now, There’s a great spot to put a bar cart 🙂
One of the oddest things was the suppppeerrr weird ceiling in the living room. The previous owners cut a hole out of the bedroom to make a double height ceiling. Definitely one of the most unusual things I’ve ever seen in a house! I’m hoping once this airs, someone emails me and tells me why they did this!!
Thankfully, we were able to clean up the fireplace and paint it black. Now it looks super fresh and clean! We eliminated the mantle to make the room feel deeper and taller. Then, added the awesome trim work above 🙂
My team and I feel like we waaaayyy lucked out with this gorgeous, original pocket door! How amazing is this?!?
Thank you all for stopping by the blog!!! How amazing was this house?!? It’s soo cute and charming, I love that I was able to share it with you all!
