You guys, the flip is finished. Wahoo!
Do you remember where we started last fall?
I remember when we first saw this house – my first thought was, “Oh good, there’s nothing super offensive about it. But dang, that brick is ugly and I wish we could change that bay window into something more modern.”
Bam. Wish granted.
Painting the brick a creamy white instantly freshened up the whole look. And I love the contrast of the dark window frames against the brick – to me, it looks modern without feeling cold.
Our original vision was to create a boxed bay window (with right angles instead of the more curved look), but that wasn’t possible because of the way the window was framed. However, with some serious finagling with the window opening our installer was able to switch out the six window panels that looked busy and dated with 3, larger window panels that look sleek and modern. I’m a happy girl.
