Project Dollhouse Update

Sunday, December 4, 2011

Happy Monday, and can you believe we're already past the first weekend of December?  Yikes!!  Anyway, I have no holiday decor ideas or projects to share with you, but I hope you have a time to take a quick tour of the progress over at Project Dollhouse.

Hooray for new tile!  This is the master shower, which was exceedingly gross, as you can see below. 

Eew.   We used the cheap inexpensive tile from Home Depot and Southeastern Salvage. The darker tile is from SE Salvage. It's 6x6 in a color called Linen, which is lighter than it appears in this image.  The white horizontal stripes are from Home Depot, and they are just 3x6 subway tiles in white. Husband made the magic happen with his insanely good tiling skills. 

Cabinet doors are painted.  Sherwin-Williams Alabaster.  Painting the cabinets was quite a journey, as part of the prep work (done by an outside party who will remain nameless) was  botched and had to be re-done. It all worked out in the end and cabinets look fab.  

Shelby's room is painted by me.  Benjamin Moore's Blue Spa, which is a vibrant teal.  She thinks it's Blue Surf, which is nails-on-the-chalkboard electric teal.  : )   Don't tell.

Foyer, painted by me too!  It's Benjamin Moore Gray Cashmere, one of my favorite colors. 

This is the palm frond chandelier that will go in the hall bath. As a reminder, here are the selections and inspiration board for that bathroom.

Kitchen countertops have been cut

Guest bedroom is painted Benjamin Moore's Heather Gray. Looks more green here than it does in person.

Thanks for checking in on our little project, that is really turning out to be bigger than anticipated.  Isn't that always the way?

The shower turned out great! I love your idea to mix tile colors and sizes and turn them into uniform stripes.

Kim, all of your choices are fab--and I love the deep teal wall color and palm frond chandelier especially. Loving the little reveals along the way!

I like how you casually mention the painting done by you - that's a lot of work, especially alone, nice job! Love love the gray cashmere color. That chandelier is darn cute too! said...

I love, love, love the Blue Spa in Shelby's room. The palm frond chandelier is so fun. Loving it all!

Looking good! We are giving away lots of goodies at the store and there aren't a lot of people entering for the Chattanooga facebook ones so you might want to try.


Kim...looking so good! All that painting...whew! In the end though I know it will be fabulous. I just used Gray Cashmere in a laundry room. Such a pretty color.

Most programmers at the top of the hill attribute the rapid development of real estate to lower construction costs as a result of the availability of rocks.

You have no idea how jealous I am right now! We are chomping at the BIT to have another house of ours to work on (creative freedom, yay!) and that chandelier is sooo perfect - can't wait to see this as it continues, for now I live vicariously through you!
