Welcome to our most recent flip in the Overbrook area of Greenville! Above and below were photos from the listing of the home before we purchased it. This one was a complete DIY gone wrong with sub floors in the kitchen, the appliances in the dining room, and fake walls separating a bedroom that should have never been a bedroom. On the exterior, that bay window was the first to go, along with the iron railing on the porch. We also convert that garage into a master suite, all below!
Phew, okay. On to the photos that I took once we purchased the house and the owners had moved out.
There was a lot of potential in the living room, especially with the screened-in porch. We decided to enclose that area, framing up the window and casing out the opening where the door used to be.
These closets were super awkward, small and one on either side of this tiny nook. We relocated the doors to the flat walls and kept the nook as a place for a bench or window seat. Also, remember those sticky stars on the ceilings? Oh the 90’s.
Yeah. No clue what this was supposed to be, but it became a guest closet and a walk-in laundry off the hallway. The closet ended up being quite large – great storage space for future owners.
Well the floor was already torn up in here, so no demo needed there! We continued by tearing out all of the cabinetry and replacing it with semi-custom pearl gray cabinets. This ceiling was vaulted improperly, so we brought it back down to be consistent with the rest of the home.
Where the brick wall starts is where we cut through for a hallway, and converted the garage into the master suite. Where the door is, is now the master closet.
This is where that fake wall/random bedroom came into play. Again, the ceilings were done improperly so we brought the height down and this space became either a dining room or sitting area for future owners. We also added a new deck off of the french doors to the backyard.
And now my favorite part. The after. Ahhhhhhh!
The brick was painted white, new shutters, doors and windows were added, and the porch railing was changed to wood. The garage is now converted to the master suite, landscaping was renewed, and that completes this exterior transformation.
Hardwood floors were redone throughout the home, and stained dark walnut. The interior was painted (this room is Sherwin Williams Amazing Gray), new light fixtures added, as well as new crown and baseboard throughout. The fireplace was painted and the hearth was tiled with Carrera marble in a herringbone pattern.
This space is the transformed porch. It’s now an office space or a sunroom for future owners. On the exterior of the space we sided with Hardie plank to give it some dimension from the rest of the brick home.
This home has two spaces that could work as dining areas – this space, as well as the one off of the kitchen. I could see either working as a formal sitting room.
Oh this kitchen. I went a different direction that we normally go, choosing Pearl Gray cabinets with Fantasy Brown granite. Which by the way is a really horrible name for a granite color, but it looks so great. It has specks of gray and green that pull out the color of these walls (Sherwin Williams Quietude). All of the appliances are Gallery Series.
This is the second hall bath. In here, we kept it clean and simple with a white subway tile.
Wahoo, normal closets! This room as well as the other guest room were painted
Sherwin Williams Malabar.
This is the converted garage into a master suite. I love how this space turned out, and was so happy when we were able to vault the ceilings. This chandelier was a great find and a great price at World Market.
This barn door was custom made by DM2Furnishings. It was the perfect touch for this master suite. And yes, we did hang the mirror in the master bath, the photographer beat me to it.
My favorite part – the master walk-in shower. I knew from the start that I wanted a calming sea foam green in this bathroom and Circles and Squares delivered. I love how this turned out.
That wraps up this flip, and it was under contract in ONE day! Congratulations to the new owners!
