Shore update: Update In Progress

Monday, February 17, 2014

Some of you might be wondering what is happening at our shore place. Surely by now we should be finished! Well, what started out as some hurricane related water damage repair turned kitchen renovation uncovered some further water damage that required a little more work than we anticipated. We are nearly at the end of the project and really excited to have it all ready by summer but a few more small things need to be done and then I've got to go down there and give it a cleaning of a lifetime (this place has dirt on it dirt!) before I can start doing some fun decor stuff.

In the meantime, here are a few in progress snaps...

The living room is the biggest challenge right now since I want to update it a bit without replacing the key pieces. I've already painted it Glidden's granite gray and have this Keno Trellis rug that I can't wait to roll out!  But I still need to decide what to do with the draperies, the artwork and the accent furniture. I'm keeping the existing coffee table, couch and chairs.  Ideas are welcome.

The kitchen is nearly there. Still needs a table (pretty sure I'm going with the ikea docksta despite its drawbacks), drapes, art and accessories.

Ironically the bedroom - where almost no work occurred - is in the worst shape now as it was the storage/dumping ground for the rest of the apartment for the whole year.  I will probably do just a little sprucing up in here and call it a day but its very far from useable right now.

Thankfully, the bathroom suffered no damage that can't be fixed with some deep cleaning so nothing to report there.

So there is the update.  With the winter we've been having, it sometimes feel like warmer weather will never get here but I know its coming. The question is can I be ready when it arrives?

  1. I'm excited to see the finished product! Everything looks great so far.

    I wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting on my deer painting. As a loyal follower of your blog, it made my day when you noticed my tiny piece of internet real estate. Thank you!

    1. Thanks! I was debating about leaving it the old color or going darker but Im so happy I went with this shade. It still feels plenty beachy.

  5. I cant wait to see how the living room turns out-- I think with a rug that cool you'll def need a cool geometric sculpture like this... http://www.potterybarn.com/shop/furniture-upholstery/living-room-ideas/turner-living-nine/?

  8. Your kitchen looks amazing! Did you move all the furniture and that out before the flood? Can't wait to see it all finished

  9. Everything is taking shape and looks great! As a side note, I had a Docksta and could never keep the base clean (plus it became wonky and then the top chipped...)

  10. I love these! Any of them would look great in the kitchen (though I think I'm partial to #2 because of all the color)!
