Happy Thursday! It officially feels like winter tonight in Atlanta – boy is it chilly outside (and I must add that I am not thrilled that it is so dark outside at 6:00 either -Disliking the whole time change very much)! On a positive note, I just got some pictures back of a commercial space I finished up and I’m super excited to share! This was such a fun project to work on because it was a bit different from what I normally do on a day to day basis. At this Fleet Feet Sports we were really able to give the store a unique feel using old barn wood, pipes and re-purposing several found objects. I think the result turned out great!
Loving the signage I found – They are actually letters wrapped in old ceiling tins. The shoes are displayed on tables and recycled wooden soda trays rather than wall racks and the “partitions” holding the socks are vintage doors. We also made the light out of an old basket and attached some running numbers from local races.
All of the wall display racks were distressed and wrapped in chunky barn wood.
This was one of my favorite finds -It is an old display from a hardware store! The lights above the cash wrap were baskets that used to hold golf balls at a driving range – Repurposing is so much fun (and I have an amazing electrician 🙂!
We used chicken wire inserts on these cabinet doors. On display are T-Shirts from the Peachtree Road Race framed in Barnwood Frames.
The display racks were made out of pipes, old pine, and casters. I think they turned out fantastic!
A HUGE Thank you to Raftermen Photography for the amazing pictures!
Hope you all enjoy!
Well summer has flown by and I can’t believe that we have already landed in September! It really felt like fall this week – which I am absolutely thrilled about. This northern girl is way over this Georgia Heat! Summer was filled with lots of remodels and many of them are wrapping up.
These are some Before and After shots of a kitchen remodel I just finished. The original space was a small U-Shape with the laundry room in a small closet (located behind the star burst mirror).
We bumped the back wall of the house out a few feet, added some doors that let in a ton of natural light and reworked the entire kitchen laundry layout. The new layout is much more open and although the space is new, it flows really well with the existing spaces and overall is an amazing transformation!
We had more length than width in the space so visually we decided it would be better to create a pantry out of cabinetry rather than a “closet” type space and I think it worked out great!!
If you are looking at the before pics, this new wine bar area is where the old laundry closet was.
Love this Apron front sink from Rohl. It is a perfect addition to the space!! We also did a large framed chalk board (magnetic as well!) you can see in the back. That door lead to the new laundry space tucked away in the corner.
The back splash was a clean and simple subway tile, but we used a contrasting grout to tie in the tons of the counter top and add a little more visual interest!
The rest of the main level of the house is hardwoods, but we opted for a travertine floor in this room and I am so glad we did!
Hope you love it as much as I do! I’ll be back soon with some more images of what’s been going on over here at L Kae. Stay Tuned and Enjoy your day!
