Oh this garden apartment. . .
Looking through old photos, I realize this was one of the very, very first projects started. So what counts as “before”?
Is “before” what the place looked like when we walked around with our real estate agents?
It was a whopping 8 days after we closed that the demo started down here.
And well over a year before it was finished. Perhaps eventually update this post with lots of links of all the projects it took to get ‘er done but for now, lets just get to the afters. It’s been too long coming as it is.
I love how the mantel turned out. Before it was a boxy eyesore.
And now, it’s open! Lighter. The brick is exposed. New cable and electric are run. A much better focal point, don’t you think?
But do you want to know what my favorite part of the room is?
It was an instant transformation as soon as they started going in, caulking as we went. Even though they still needed some touch up paint, at that moment, the place started to look finished. And that, my friends, is a beautiful thing.
