A Tribeca Loft Sale


I hope you've had a great week and are ready to roll into a long holiday weekend!  Our weather forecast is looking amazing, and we have a lot of baseball games ahead to keep us busy.  (That, and wrapping up another kitchen project and furniture that has completely taken over my garage.)  It's all good.

You all know how much I love Everything But The House.  Today I'm sharing some hip and chic items from a Tribeca loft that are available for you to purchase through EBTH here.  Are you ready?  To set the stage, let's first take a peek at the loft, shall we?  (All tour photos courtesy of The Wall Street Journal.)

Full loft tour available here.

Way cool, right?  Well, you can purchase some of the items in this hip loft at  The sale itself can be found here.  I find myself drawn to the metal pieces that are listed.  This desk is off the hook:

Or these industrial shelves, perhaps?

Or maybe some steel barstools?

This coffee table is industrial chic as well:

If this metal isn't your style, there's always this beautiful piece in a metal of a different kind.

Have a great holiday weekend - the craziness around here should slow down and I have some great projects to share with you!

A Two-Toned Client Kitchen + An Announcement


Now that I've recovered from The One Room Challenge, I wanted to share another big project that I finished during the same time period.  Yes, this is why I was crazy-insane-exhausted.  But I love it.  I really do.  After working in a corporate job for over 20 years, working for myself, using my hands and creativity is so rewarding.

This is the largest client kitchen job I have undertaken to date, and I'm so happy with how it came together.  The homeowner has amazing taste, and has been making changes to their home over the five years that they've lived there, and the cabinets were another step in the process.  They have already replaced the countertops and floors, and a new backsplash and cabinet hardware are in the works as well.

As you can see, the kitchen was already beautiful.  But they weren't in keeping with her style, and they showed every speck of dust.

She has slowly been making over their home, putting her own stamp on it.  As you can see through the kitchen in the photo below, there is a stunning built-in that they added, which is the same darker gray color that we used on the cabinets.

The countertops and the flooring have also been replaced.  The countertops are a gorgeous white and gray quartz.

They also have this lovely "drop zone" with glass cabinetry for display, and loads of addition storage.  Let me just say, I want one of these.

For colors, the homeowner already had them chosen - Repose Gray and Gauntlet Gray - both of them Sherwin Williams colors (color matched for Benjamin Moore's Advance paint).

The result is stunning.

On another exciting note, I have made my painting business legit - I'm now an LLC and am bonded and insured.  The whole nine yards.  I have kept this to myself for the most part - not sure why, fear of failure maybe?  But, I wanted to share it with you because I'm really excited about the projects that I've hired to do, and the great people I've met as a result of starting this little business.  It's so rewarding to create and grow something of your own.

So, if you're in the Dayton/Cincinnati area, and have a kitchen or bathroom that needs a lift, give me a shout -
