    Montgomery Flip – Guest Bathroom

    by  • July 1, 2017 • 6 Comments

    Outside of the study or guest bedroom is the guest bathroom – the doorway to the right in this photo. The “before” state definitely had a dated late 80’s/early 90’s look and didn’t at all match the French Country style of the house. We began demo to open up the shower. It’s a fine...

    Heading back downstairs now to the study. This door off of the foyer leads to the bedroom portion of the first floor. We called it the bedroom “wing” to fully embrace the fanciness of this house, haha! From this little hall, the master suite is to the left, this bedroom or study is straight...

    Montgomery Flip - Upstairs Bathrooms

    I’ll finish up the upstairs with the two bathrooms serving the upstairs bedrooms. I’ll be honest – the upstairs has the least exciting reveals of this renovation, because this is the part that we kept more basic so we could afford to make the downstairs really glamorous and special. BUT it still was greatly...

    I’m excited to now bring you inside our Montgomery flip/dream house! If you look past the dirt, navy blue carpeted stairs, water damage, and brown velvet curtains, you can see that this foyer had pretty amazing bones to begin with. The handmade terracotta floor, the rustic wood accents, the leaded glass windows…I was completely...

    Now that you’ve seen how the front of the house turned out, let’s check out the backyard. You saw a glimpse in that post of this courtyard in between the garage and the sunroom. I love the location of the sunroom on this side of the house – it’s quiet and shaded and surrounded...

    Welcome to our first finished flip! Technically I don’t know if we should even call it a flip, given that it took us a year and a half to finish and it was also our home during the time…BUT that was the intention all along, so that’s what we call it.  Now that we have...
