Time for the reveal! We’ve had so much fun working with our friend Elizabeth as we remodeled our Topsail Island condo. The before and after pics don’t match up perfectly–this isn’t HGTV after all!–but you get the idea.
To start with, we painted the unit a buttery yellow, replaced the sofa and loveseat, painted the coffee table and end tables and replaced the throw on the wall with John’s shell photos. It’s hard to see, but behind the loveseat is a dining room set and a new chandelier. (The wall above the bar had yet to be painted when this picture was taken). I love to write from my perch on this sofa. The wall facing the loveseat is all glass and I can watch the dolphins and pelicans as I ponder my next sentence.
We ditched the old enterainment unit and bentwood rocker for a clean cottage style console and comfy rattan trimmed club chair.
We replaced the old barstools above with pretty new white ones below.
Instead of replacing the kitchen cabinets, we refaced them and they look amazing.
We left the master bedroom its pretty light green, but replaced the old headboard with a new one along with new bedding. The view stays the same!
The second bedroom is my favorite makeover! Could it be any more dramatic? I love these new headboards.
Above, the view from the deck, and below, the view from the balcony off the 2nd bedroom; that’s the intracoastal waterway.
When I decided to set a book on Topsail Island, I never would have guessed that my research would lead to me buying a place there. I wonder where I’ll set the next book??
