When Leslie and Charley Parnell moved into their current home, they knew right away they wanted to lose some walls and give the home a more open floor plan. Working with designers Scott Paterek and Tammie Weaver of Massimo Interior Design, they ended up with a spacious kitchen (which happened to make the cover of our September issue!) perfectly suited to their urban-inspired style. Their bath also received an overhaul that resulted in a walk-in closet for both him and her. Read the full story here, and scroll below to see before images from this west Little Rock makeover.
The Big Reveal: Kitchen Makeover
Last month, Cara Wilkerson of Live the Home Life wowed us with a first glimpse at one of her biggest and most impressive home improvements yet, her kitchen. This month, she’s back with the big reveal. One thing’s for sure: Cara’s new kitchen is cookin’!
April already?! My goodness how this year is flying by. With one mega DIY kitchen remodel underway in my neck of the woods, itâ€™s no wonder the hands of time are ticking by with little notice. Last I left you, my kitchen had gone from dark and dated with few functioning appliances capable of toasting bread, let alone dishing out a full-fledged mealâ€¦
To much lighter and much brighter with reworked and refaced cabinets, new stainless appliances and countertops just itching to be replaced.
I wonâ€™t even try to lie to you. The day my countertops arrived was by far among the top 10 moments of my twenty-something life. Maybe I need to get out more, but seeing these quartz beauties march into my construction site was a definitely high point.
After a couple calls to plumbers and electricians to tie up a few loose ends, then came a white subway tile backsplash DIY-ed by yours truly.
Topped off with a few touchups and accessories and Phase 2 of DIY Kitchen Remodel 2012 was a wrap!
So now that Phase 2 is D-O-N-E, whatâ€™s next? Connecting the laundry room to the kitchen by knockingÂ through the separating wall and tiling the laundry room and kitchen floors. Check back soon as the madness continues!
