Beach House Renovation, Part II

Welcome to the 138th Metamorphosis Monday!

Suzy and her hubby purchased a small beach-front condo and completely renovated it from top to bottom.  I shared the Before and After of the entry hall (with bunk beds) and the living room/sitting/dining area in THIS post.  Today, we’re touring the Kitchen, Master Bedroom and Bath.  Prepare to be delighted!

Here’s how the kitchen looked prior to the renovation…very dated.

AFTER:  All the rooms received new paint, laminate wood flooring, and new ceiling fans.

Wow!  Such a wonderful renovation of the kitchen with painted cabinets, new appliances and a gorgeous backsplash.

The colors are absolutely perfect for a beach house.

So cute!

This beach home has one bath and it received a make-over, too.
Bath Before:


More Before:  Sink in bathroom

Now for the After:  Suzy bought a ready-made shower curtain from HomeGoods and a friend monogrammed it for a custom look.

The tub/shower surround were resurfaced.  It went from dull and drab to clean and shiny white.

Suzy removed a small closet to make room for a washer and dryer.  New cabinetry, lighting and a sink complete this bath renovation.  Suzy found a magnetic towel rod and it works beautifully attached to the side of the dryer.  Brilliant!

Master Bedroom:
The Master Bedroom got a full makeover, too.  Take a look at the Before.

Suzy said the louvered closet doors were covered with years of grime and dirt.

And here’s the fabulous After:

Suzy made the box-pleated bed skirt out of the same fabric used for the upholstered headboard.

Dresser side of room…again, this room received a fresh coat of paint, too.

The louvered closet doors were replaced with folding paneled doors…much better!

A few close-ups…lovely fabrics!

Suzy made the bolster pillow…love the way she covered the button!

Details like the decorative cording on the headboard and pillows make this room feel truly special.  Even small spaces can feel grand with the addition of just a few special touches!

Beautiful window treatment!

Suzy captured this gorgeous view during the blue hour.

  38. Lina's Market says

    Great Remodel, look great.

    Thank you for sharing.

  39. Wonderful transformation – love the blue, yellow and green together.

  40. CalypsoInTheCountry says

    Love those beachy colors! Great transformation. Thanks for hosting today!

  41. What an absolutely amazing transformation! I LOVE the backsplash in the kitchen. And, the guest room and bath are beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing and for hosting !!

  42. Hi everyone. To say that I am deeply touched and appreciative of your many comments about our little beach place is an understatement! I've tried to express my thanks to Susan, but just don't have words enough.

    @Kellie who was inquiring about the brand of washer/dryer – I think they are Whirlpool. We purchased them from Lowes who delivered and set them up for free. We had to remove the door frame to get them into the bathroom though!

  43. I loved seeing her beach house. Gosh, I would LOVE a beach house. *sigh….she really did a wonderful job.

    Thanks for coming by..
    I am sure whatever way you cook beans is just a good (and probably much better) than mine. Mom cooked her's on top of the stove for many years but, in later life, she used the crock pot..that is just easier for me, too.
    xoxo bj

  44. I am all over that living room ceiling fan! LOVE it! Everything is just great! The irridescent tiles on the kitchen backsplash really add a lively and light touch. Great job on all of it! Something to be proud of for sure!
