The front of the home was reimagined with steps leading to a more pronounced portico. A stacked stone veneer dresses up the singled facade, while the addition of a carriage style garage door adds extra charm.
Mirrored drawer fronts dress up a classic white dresser in this cottage-style bedroom. Assorted knickknacks and an off-white mirror sit atop the dresser, which rests against trellis-patterned wallpaper.
Upon entry to the multipurpose room, the boys are greeted by a grassy-green dresser (picked up at a flea market, sanded and repainted) which holds their day-to-day school, playground and gym clothes. Although it may seem insignificant at first, proper placement of storage furniture can have a huge impact on keeping a kid's room neat and tidy.
You can turn virtually any traditional entryway into a makeshift mudroom by utilizing your DIY skills. First, take an old dresser and dress it up with a fresh coat of paint. Then, use picture frames and chalkboard paint and add them to the center of each drawer front; these will serve as name plates, so each family member will have a designated place to properly store their winter gear and accessories. The case good itself will serve as an attractive piece of furniture in the foyer and take up minimal space.
Mirror doors create an elegant armoire exterior to match the sophisticated transitional style of this bedroom. Matching armoires frame a gray and white dresser complimentary to the cool-tone gray walls. A gray toned hardwood floor fits beautifully with the color scheme.
