“I started with ideas in my head, pencil and paper in hand, and went straight to my most valuable resource, MY DAD! My dad is a man of all traits. Without a doubt, everything I know is because of him. Together, we have amassed countless hours of blood (yes, true blood from my dad and myself—we can never seem to make it through a remodel without some bumped knuckles), sweat (many, many sizzling hours) and tears (a few sad, but most happy) along the way. Both of my parents have helped me in rehabbing my home. It has been a family affair! My mom being the painter, cleaner and forever organizer in the family and my dad, the genius behind the scenes helping me make all of my dreams a reality.

Our first remodel was the half bath off of the kitchen. We decide to start with a smaller remodel to get our feet wet, and to find out what the house was truly made of. The peach wall tile, peach sink, and peach toilet, although having a nice monochromatic feel, had to go! As you can see from the pictures included, some demolition and modernizing was just what the half bath needed.” — Denise
