Old Cloverdale House Renovation – Kitchen & Dining Room Reveal!

Remember Ashley from the Old Cloverdale house renovation?

Layla Palmer | Ashley Gilbreath | Montgomery | Alabama

Well, she’s done remodeling her kitchen and dining room, and I’m so excited to show you the before and after photos today!

But before we dive into all the pretty pics, I did just want to mention that our t-shirts are being printed this week, and that we’re going to start shipping them out next week. Thanks again to everyone who ordered! šŸ˜€ XO

Okay- are you ready for some remarkable?

What once looked like this:

And over in the dining room, what once looked like this:

Now looks like this!

Pretty wild, huh? And it’s SO crazy to think she pulled that all together in less than two months!

Ashley said the bedrooms and bathrooms weren’t ready for their close-ups yet, but check out the little bar area she created in one of the closets off the dining room:

Isn’t that door gorgeous?! Here’s a close-up of theĀ Colefax & Fowler wallpaper she backed the closets with:

The style is “Heywood” and the color is silver. For more info about the it, click here: Designs.Colefax.com.

Now let’s head back to the kitchen, shall we? What a transformation!

Ashley ordered the Henry Industrial Hanging Pendant Lights fromĀ Circa Lighting through her shop, and the farm table-turned-kitchen island came from Scott’s Antique Market in Atlanta.

The cabinets and trim are painted Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore, and the ceiling and walls are White Dove.

(Ashley wasn’t quite done with the living room either, but I can’t wait to show you that, too!)

The faucet came from Home Depot and the marble counters were done by Hardy Royal at Premier Countertops here in Montgomery.

The (small, medium and large) wicker stag heads above the range are also available through Ashley’s shop

Ashley was so sweet to order one of the little ones forĀ ourĀ little one, so I’m super excited to hang it up in his room when it arrives.Ā There’s a nice big chunk of open wall space in there, and I think some wicker taxidermy will be a fun addition to the art collection I’ve got planned! Hmmm…wicker…taxidermy…

    Thanks a lot! I was dying to see the afters! :-) More, please. Btw the antique mirror is amazing. All the spaces are beautiful!

    So pretty! Our 1920’s cottage has a very similar layout (Living room, kitchen, dining room – in that order). We hope to remodel soon, thinking that the layout should be changed so that kitchen is in the back, but this one turned out so nicely, and maybe I’m reconsidering keeping the kitchen where it is. Everything looks great. I’m concerned about not having that “work triangle” though, having to go around the island to go from stove to sink, for example. Hmmm…..

    The kitchen is beautiful, love it. I’m curious about the paint color on the cabinets. Is it Revere Pewter lighted by some percentage? I have a paint chip for Revere Pewter at home and those cabinets look like a much lighter color.

    That marble is gorgeous, what an amazing transformation! Also, I can’t wait to check out those wicker stag heads in Ashley’s shop – I’ve never seen anything like them!

  5. Claire says

    Your site says these are BM Revere Pewter Cabinets but it looks so much lighter than my cabinet sample painted in RP. Can you please tell me if you cut the formula?

    Thanks so much! What you have done looks great!

    Oh, sweet mercy! I never really have time to read all the blogs, because… well… TODDLER IN THE HOUSE! And then there’s our junior high boy with the social life who always needs a ride somewhere, and tons of laundry to do, so blog-reading always takes a back burner to real life. But today… WHILE THE TEEN IS GOLFING AND THE TODDLER IS NAPPING, I’m sneaking in some down time, and this is where I ended up! And!!! THOSE WICKER STAG HEADS ABOVE THE STOVE HAD ME AT HELLO! I just want to stand up and clap wildly and shout out, “Well-played! Well!! Played!!” And now I’ve successfully spent so much time on your blog, that I’ve taken YOUR house tour and drank an entire cup of chai tea, and all I can say is this: Maybe you could come visit us… and you could just roll up your sleeves and say something very fancy and glittery, like, “Would you mind if I just redecorated your house for you?” Because goodness! I think your style is officially my style, but Jesus didn’t give me the spiritual gift of decorating, even though that’s the gift I kind of wanted!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE! I just painted my walls Revere Pewter…what a perfect color!!! The kitchen floor is EXACTLY what i am looking for…can you tell me about it? What, where and how can I get one? THANk YOU FOR SHARING!
