A Look Before All The Work

 Today it looks like this, hopefully soon, it will look a lot different.
Yes, it's time for a re-do at Coastal Charm. Here is the list of things that we will be doing to update our home.
1. Install a new front door.
2. Make and install a sliding barn door (it will go between the foyer and family room).
3. Remove the popcorn ceilings in the family room...foyer...master bedroom...master bath...guest bath.
4. Install can lighting in the family room and master bedroom (we will have a pro do this).
5. Have new carpet installed in all the bedrooms and home office.
6. Paint family room...master bedroom...master bath and foyer.
7. Hang new drapes in the family room.
8. Install planation shutters in the guest bedrooms.
9. Install board and batten in the foyer (this is still a maybe).
That's all!!! Okay y'all, I'm not sure how long all of this will take us to complete, but I am so ready to get started. Since I make so much of my inventory for the shop, it's going to be really hard to get all of this done quick. So, be sure to hang in there with me during the next few months to see the finished look. The rooms that we are painting will be painted white, so if you have a favorite shade of white, please share with us.

                                The walls will be white...a new end table will be added
                                 next to the sofa and all the wall décor will get moved
                                              around or exchanged for  new décor.

                                                     I am adding at touch of blue
                                                            in the family room.

                                                This "old door" is new to me.
                                                 I found this beauty, while I
                                                 was out of town on a junkn'

                                                      It will stay in the family room,
                                                      but it will get moved to another

                                            We are still trying to decide if we
                                             want to install board & batten in
                                                               our foyer.

                                                 After removing this wallpaper,
                                                 this room is really going to look
                                                                  so different.

                                     Hey y'all, this DIYer is so ready to get started.
Pin ItI'd love for you to stay connected with Coastal Charm...so come on over and join me there!!!

Sounds like some fun changes, Linda...looking forward to seeing them happen!

Ann said...

Your renovation plans sounds and look great. Can't wait to see the results.

I love your couch and its charming pillows. Hope you'll retain them.

Junkchiccottage said...

LInda that is quite the list. Everything sounds wonderful.
I just put up the board and batten in my foyer and love it. It was really easy to do and it makes such a statement. I think you will love it.

mamasmercantile said...

Some great plans, looking forward to seeing how you get on. You have a beautiful home already.

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

Lots of great changes Linda! So much work but will be worth it in the end.

Artsy VaVa said...

Wow! That's a lot! Can't wait to see all the changes.

Teresa P said...

Wow...you are keeping Mr. CC busy! I cant wait to see all the changes. Removing the popcorn ceilings will be a real task but so worth it in the end.

BTW...will you be at the City Farmhouse show in June? The have added two shows this year.

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Wow, that's a long list, but I'm sure all your changes will be gorgeous. Don't forget to come up for air every now and then, lol. Thanks for sharing at Vintage Inspiration Party Linda. I'll be looking forward to seeing all your progress.

Judy Pimperl said...

Let the madness begin!!! I'm imagining you with a sledgehammer like on the HGTV shows...Wear a shower cap when you start scraping those ceilings!!! I'm conjuring up so many great images in my mind, Linda! Wish you could see them!
Have fun.

Cecilia said...

Ooo, it's going to look great! One of my favorite colors of white is Swiss Coffee by Benjamin Moore. Can't wait to see the changes!

Anonymous said...

Wow, that's a long list. Do you have a secret formula for energy and motivation? Can't wait to see the results.

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Wow...I just finished an 8 week master bath redo...gutted to the studs and I am sooooo over renovations. Yours should be so much more fun as there are many things you are doing they each seem manageable on their own. .....Except that messy popcorn ceiling removal! Keep us posted


DD's Cottage said...

In the middle of a very large addition/remodel-fun but exhausting. Look forward to seeing yours! Love the door!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

How exciting Linda!! So many changes...they're going to look fabulous!!

Tardevil said...

Your list made me tired, just reading it! ;o) It will look great when it's completed. It seems like Benjamin Moore White Dove is the color a lot of bloggers use.

Bluwatergal said...

Good luck with all your changes! Sounds like the end result will be awesome :-) Bwg ~~~

Rustic Maple Elizabeth said...

Lots to do but you will enjoy the fresh new look. We tackled removing popcorn ceiling texture on most of the main floor over the last year, and painted too. I love the fresh look. We are also debating board and batten in our small front entry. With the guys and their boots getting kicked off it might be easier to keep up with scrubbing the white and freshening periodically.

Unknown said...

Woah! You sure have a lot to do with all these plans.

I am sure you are going to enjoy the process. :)

How exciting Linda! Change is always fun. A lot of work, but so worth it in the end. Love, love that old door! I have board and batten on one wall in my craft room and love it. I am wanting to hang tongue and groove horizontally in my laundry room and paint the floor white in our living room. Thinking I will wait till Fall to do the floor. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
