Powder Room Tile Wall & Remodel Update

Powder Room Tile Wall & Remodel Update

Our powder room remodel is juuuuust about finished so this is the last update before the big reveal! This room is small but mighty and the powder room tile wall packs a punch! I CAN NOT WAIT to share the reveal with you soon!

Remember the design plan?

Construction Updates

We’ve made a ton of progress since my last update! If you recall, we relocated the powder room a few feet and reconfigured the space which involved moving walls, re-running electrical and ductwork and new drywall. All of the construction is finally behind us but here’s a look at the room after the framing and plumbing rough-in was done.

We installed heavy-duty metal brackets into the studs to support the weight of the floating vanity and concrete sink and had the plumbers rough-in the sink plumbing in the wall for our wall-mount faucet.

Tile Install

After drywall, we had the tile installed on the floor and wall.  First, our tile guru (Brian with Ceramictec for anyone local) installed the slate floor tile. I love the simplicity of the tile but the various shapes keep it interesting.… Read more

Earthy, Natural Farmhouse Christmas Tree

Earthy, Natural Farmhouse Christmas Tree

Hi friends!  I’m excited to be joining the 3rd annual My Home Style Blog Hop: Christmas Tree Edition, hosted by my friend Stephanie from Casa Watkins Living! I’m teaming up with a ton of super talented bloggers to share how our Christmas trees reflect our home’s style. If you’re hopping over from Holly at Club Crafted, hi! Thanks for visiting! My home style is all about farmhouse living with a modern twist. This year, I chose to do an earth, natural farmhouse Christmas tree focusing primarily on natural elements and I kept it neutral with just a bit of color.

Let’s take a look!

I purchased a slim tree because it’s a bit unique and I love the way they look. Full disclosure: I’m waiting impatiently for my local tree tents to get their stock so we can purchase a real tree. At that time I may relocate this cute slim tree to another area in the house.

To bring in a bit of something unexpected, I purchased vase filler of assorted balls and pods and made them into ornaments.… Read more

Lakefront Farmhouse Property: Client Project

Lakefront Farmhouse Property: Client Project

Hey guys! You may remember the blue lakefront farmhouse and barn I’ve been working on? You may have seen a sneak peek on Instagram. Well, I finally wrapped up the project and today I’m sharing everything we did.

The lakefront farmhouse property has a main home and detached barn. It sits on several acres on Lake Magdelene, with beautiful water views. The property will serve as a vacation and event rental. They also plan to do a community garden and they even have chickens! The house and barn were built by the original owners 1970. It sat vacant for several years and looked a little run down, but with tons of potential. My client brought me on board to help chose exterior paint colors and to decorate the main indoor and outdoor living spaces. She wanted to stay true to the farmhouse feel but also wanted to have a little fun and incorporate pops of color and some boho elements.

Lakefront Farmhouse: Exterior

We started with painting the exterior of the main lakefront farmhouse and detached barn. After presenting a few color options to them, they decided on this deep blue hue which I think is perfect for the lakefront farmhouse and barn.… Read more

Farmhouse Kitchen Remodel Update! Finally Putting It Back Together

Farmhouse Kitchen Remodel Update! Finally Putting It Back Together

I’m coming at ya today with a big farmhouse kitchen remodel update! We’re 15 weeks in and finally putting the mess back together! Since my last update, we finished drywall and flooring, had the gas line installed and assembled all of our cabinets!

Farmhouse Kitchen Remodel Update!

Drywall

All of the drywall is done! We had it done in two phases, mostly because it took us a while to do the electrical work, but the entire kitchen and powder room/pantry/mudroom/wet bar area off of the kitchen is all drywalled, textured and painted.

Flooring

As soon as the drywall work was complete, we had our new floors installed. This marked the fourth and final phase of new flooring install in our house, and we finally have all matching floors! We have a hand scraped engineered hardwood in a mixed 3″, 5″ and 7″ width.

Here’s a closer look at the step down into the living room that hubby built. It looks so nice now that the flooring is installed.

Propane Tank Install

Our previous kitchen range was electric and since we wanted our new range to be gas, we had to have a propane tank installed.… Read more

Earthy Modern Boho Nursery Project

Earthy Modern Boho Nursery Project

Last year I was honored to help my friend Jessica and her hubs Chris design and style a nursery for baby Jackson. Jess and Chris love the outdoors so I designed an earthy modern boho nursery with an ode to little forest animals. Jessica had selected a couple of pieces but needed help pulling the rest of the look together, and I was happy to help!
 We used the rug as inspiration and with its earthy tones and a tribal pattern, it set the tone for the room. We brought in a red-brown dresser which tied in perfectly with the rug.
The cute forest animal bedding ties in with the baby fox framed print and fox bookends.
To style the bookshelves, we use Jackson’s baby books with some of Jessica and Chris’ existing collection of vintage cameras and props, including binoculars given to Jessica by her grandpa.
The mobile was a DIY made by Jessica made from a dreamcatcher she made in college paired with feathers and mini forest animals.
The rocking chair is a family heirloom and belonged to Chris’ grandmother.

Kitchen Remodel Week 9 Update

Kitchen Remodel Week 9 Update

We’re still knee-deep in dust over here at the Daly Digs. The renovation of the kitchen and area off of the kitchen continues but we are making progress and BIG things are happening in the next couple weeks.

Demolition Update:

We had to delay the install of flooring but since my last update, we finished the electrical and drywall in the kitchen (GAME CHANGER!) and filled in the holes in the foundation from the plumbing work.

Remember this disaster?

Here’s how it looks now! What a difference, huh?

We still have to finish the electrical on the columns and make sure they’re framed out so the dimensions match. After we get that squared away, the drywallers will cover the columns in drywall too. We’re leaving the horizontal crossbeam exposed.

Design Updates:

As far as finishes go, after mulling over several faucet finish samples from Waterstone I finally made a decision.

I selected the antique brass finish for all of our Waterstone faucets and sink accessories (pot filler, soap dispenser, air gap, and bar faucet).

I have not yet decided on cabinet hardware but I’m considering stainless steel cup pulls and knobs to tie in with the handles and knobs on our Aga range and the other appliances.… Read more

Farmhouse Dining Room Refresh

Farmhouse Dining Room Refresh

I’ve dropped a couple hints on Instagram about doing a little farmhouse dining room refresh so today I’m sharing the deets. Since we’re redoing the floors in the dining room as part of the big kitchen renovation, I figured now was a great time to make some changes.

Dining Room Before

First things first, let’s take a trip down dining room memory lane. The dining room was one of the first rooms we completed after moving into our house. I shared the reveal of the space in February of last year. Here’s what it looked like then:

Whoa mamma, look at all that stuff. Since then I’ve pared the decor way back. I eliminated the bar cart and simplified the gallery wall. Here’s a more recent look:horizontal stair railing

Farmhouse Dining Room Refresh

So what do I want to change, you ask? Just the light fixture, the rug, the chairs and maaaaybe the buffet! (Insert monkey emoji with hands over eyes). Here’s the direction I’m headed:farmhouse dining room refresh

More simplistic, less colorful, more farmhouse-y.

Light fixture: I want a fixture that is grander in scale so I’m replacing the current 3-tier vintage fixture with a large brass dome light fixture which just may become my new favorite in the space (the house?).… Read more

Powder Room Finishes Finalized! (Including a Big Decision on Tile!)

Powder Room Finishes Finalized! (Including a Big Decision on Tile!)

Since my last powder room post, I’ve made a lot of decisions and all of the powder room finishes have been finalized, including the patterned tile selection!

In case you missed it, check out the intro post to the powder room remodel.

Powder Room Remodel Demo Update

But first, a quick recap on the demo situation. Here’s a look back at the space:

We pushed the powder room into the area that used to be a coat closet.

Here’s the current state of the powder room remodel:

The sink and toilet plumbing were moved to the far left wall and the toilet vent was adjusted to accommodate a door across from the window. We still have to re-frame the walls, add the pre-hung door and move the electrical for the lighting, but the room is starting to take shape.

Powder Room Finishes Finalized!

If you recall, I was dying to use some handmade Tabarka tile in this space. I narrowed down some of my favorite options and ordered samples.

After mulling it over for a few days and looking at each pattern’s repeat on a larger scale, we decided to go with Toureg 5.… Read more

Farmhouse Kitchen Remodel & Design Week 4 Update

Farmhouse Kitchen Remodel & Design Week 4 Update

The farmhouse kitchen remodel continues! We’ve been under construction for 4 weeks and we’re moving along considering we accomplish the most on weekends when hubby is off – although we’ve hired a lot out that has been done during the week.

If you missed the other farmhouse kitchen remodel posts, my last update is here and the original kitchen reno project introduction is here. We’re also remodeling the area off of the kitchen including the powder room, mudroom, pantry and adding a wet bar.

Demolition Complete

Since my last update, we finished all the kitchen demo and had the AC ductwork re-routed from the exterior of the wall above the kitchen to the attic.

We also tore down all of the walls in the area off of the kitchen in preparation for the re-configuration of that area. 

Flooring Removal

We hired out for the removal of all of the old flooring to make way for our new wood floors. 

Plumbing Progress

Having the flooring removed meant the plumbers could come in to move the kitchen sink plumbing, add a water line for the pot filler, add sink plumbing for the wet bar and move the sink and toilet plumbing in the powder room.… Read more
