If you embark upon a kitchen renovation, you may encounter a fork in the road.
Me, I had a fork in the marble, so to speak. Earlier this winter, I found lovely slabs at a Nashville stone yard. Lisa, my fabricator, reserved four--or so we thought. The saleslady forgot to tag them, and the very next day, someone snagged two slabs. Lisa went to the yard in person and reserved the remaining two. So far so good, right? Wrong.
Two steps forward, ten back--that pretty much defines the remodeling process. The decisions are extra tricky because I must think ahead about the decor. It's hard to choose paint colors, finishes, and fixtures when I'm not 100% certain about the ranch's eventual style--or colors--yet it's part of the process. If my GC had to wait for me to decide, the house would be shrouded in cobwebs.
Day by day, the ranchburger has been undergoing a transformation, and I have almost fallen behind with the updates. Medana has faithfully sent photos, and we have been sourcing items via email, searching for the best prices on cabinet knobs, a free-standing tub, and other items. Next week, the painters will arrive, and I'll have more news to report. Let's see what's been going on this week.
The master bathroom at the ranchburger has been updated several times. More recently, it received wallpaper, sconces and mirrors from Restoration Hardware, new hardware, and new vanities from Lowe's with quartz counters. Sadly, the mirrors were taken by the previous owner.
I'm still dealing with a head injury, but it hasn't stopped me from doing a little armchair decorating. Since I can't visit the ranchburger's work site, Medana has sent photos. Here's a peek at the kitchen.
Through the decades, the ranchburger's guest bath has been updated several times,with a freestanding vanity, dark brown tile floor, a fresh coat of paint, three Curry and Company sconces, and two stunning mirrors.I loved this space the first time I saw it.
No one knows the history of the ranchburger's faux chimney. Has it always been fake? Or, once upon a time, was it a working chimney, hooked up to wood burning fireplaces? If so, what in the world happened? A fire? Water damage? A remodeling decision?
