Lake House Before & After

My friend Whitney just transformed her Lake House into a clean, crisp, warm, bright and youthful Lake Home.  WOW, she did all this and on a tight budget.  I can't wait to visit in person!

Wow is right! I love that white cabinet in the family room and the little crab on the table. She did a great job at getting an expensive look just by chosing the right colors, finishes, and knowing when less is more. Great job!

That is an amazing redo, methinks those blue and white sofas look an awful lot like the ones I've been planning to use in my yet to be finished basement. Love it.

greatjob whitney!!!

I hesitate to go with black counters or cabinets because my kitchen is so dark. I have all white appliances for that reason. I also have a mirror over the stove to reflect light from windows in another room.

Do you get a lot of light in your kitchen? This looks awesome!
