Beach House Before and Afters


This post is long overdue. Finally, some before and afters of the beach house. 

When we purchased the home, I was so happy that it not only had good bones but the main finishes of the house were neutral enough that I could do anything. Wood floors and ceilings, white walls and counter tops, made selecting my own colors and furniture so easy.

So, when you purchase a house knowing you're going to redo some of it, where do you start? Normally, if you need to do any construction, you would have to demo. anything you don't want and replace it. We were lucky because the rooms were well laid out and the main finishes like floors, counter tops and tile where all neutral and did not need to be replaced.  So, that meant that space planning was the next thing on my list.

Bottle Cap Art

I needed some cheap art for all of the wall space in the beach house so it was time to put all of the beer drinking to good use. I have been saving up bottle caps for years. I turned these Heineken caps upside down because I really liked the green color.

I am so excited to say that we finally purchased a beach house! Of course one of my favorite parts is getting to decorate it! It came somewhat furnished but I have been purchasing a few things. Ahem...Here are my plans...
