Bungalow Renovation

From first house, to guesthouse.

Over four decades after selling their first home, this couple bought it again for $1., moved it to their current property and "reused" it. An amazing renovation for $3200. (Yep, that's what they said)

Take a look...

All rooms were affordably decorated. In the living room the rug is from Pottery Barn and leaves from the garden were hung in frames from Ikea.

This is my favorite room. I absolutely love the chairs and they are from Pier One!

Sheets and bedding from Target. The beautiful shams are from Garnet Hill.

The wallcovering is pages from a book, The Book of Botanical Prints: The Complete Plates, by Basilius Besler. The mirror is from Home Decorators and the West Elm shower curtain hides a sliding shower door.

Proof that you don't have to build new to have new. Wonderful job.
