We are really making some noticeable progress on the ranch house remodel. The granite countertops are in, the tile work is done and the faucets and light fixtures are for the most part up.
With the bathrooms and kitchens nearing completion, I’m starting to get the itch to move.
Which also means I need to start thinking about furniture and decor. So far, I think it’s looking pretty ranchy/western.
Here are a few before and after photos:
Since we have a lot of native sandstone both on the interior and exterior of this home, we decided to stay within that natural stone color palate.
We chose granite for the countertop in the bathroom. It was just an extra piece that the fabricator had on hand at his shop.
And now that I look at this, I see that I still need to stain the trim at the bottom of the vanity.
I also need to put up a mirror. Can’t decide if I want to put up a framed mirror or an unframed mirror (which I could get at a real good discount).
My husband chose the tile for this shower. I sent him to Lowes with a picture of the granite on the vanity.
I think he did a pretty good job.
I chose the tile for this bathroom. A nifty neutral.
The hardware was supposed to be aged bronze, but it turned out to be brushed nickel in the wrong packaging. My husband told me about the mixup… I forgot to return it… so now I’m stuck with the nickel.
I think it turned out beautiful anyway.
We removed it and added two sconces.
My husband was not all that enthusiastic about the idea of sconces, I think it had something to do with the word sconce. Not exactly manly, I understand, but I am a lady and I need a few lady-like things here and there. Even if it is just a couple of sconces. Believe it or not, he ended up liking them.
So we got a new range.
Followed by a new dishwasher, microwave and fridge. Oh, and new cabinetry, granite countertops and tile backsplash.
My husband was in the middle of hooking up the appliances when I took this picture. No light in the kitchen here, because the breaker was off for the appliance installation.
Everything is still pretty dirty, but you get the idea.
It is a tile mural of a cowboy bargaining for an Indian wife. I’m still not sure how I feel about this.
