This project will be for a homeowner whom I did some small jobs last year. She was getting ready to sell her home and was referred to me by her agent, Vera Cohen. Initial needs were just some minor repairs, accent color in shelving areas, creating an accent wall in entry, a bathroom ceiling, and painting new trim work. After another contractor installed new subway tile in the kitchen, all the little work paid off as the house was recently sold. Now, it's on to the new one!
The New House
The new home is smaller, just over 2,500 sq. ft. I'll pretty much be going through the entire house. Along with painting rooms, the project will also include painting kitchen cabinets, removing wallpaper from 3 bathrooms and the dining area and the usual minor repairs for taping and cracks. (see photos below)
The plan is to start with the cabinets. There is some issues with bathroom ventilation so I suggested using Aura bath & spa paint. Even though it's a matte finish, it'll formulated to withstand moisture and mold. She'll be having her plumber look things over and make any needed repairs, but, using this paint will add extra peace of mind.
Hopefully the wallpaper will come off easy. Luckily, they're not large areas and it was already peeling at the seems. (though that doesn't mean it's loose underneath - that provides an easy starting point)
Overall, it's going to be a fun project. I'm looking forward to making this look and feel great for the new homeowner and kids. Sometimes, doing small jobs - though they are important - don't fully allow me to show the homeowner what I can do. Being such a large job, this is a great opportunity to really help make the space fit their personalities!
