From Dark & Dated to Fabulous Farmhouse

 

HOME DESIGN & STYLING PROJECT

HomeGlow owner Sharleen & her husband Dustin, owner of Main Street Renovations, have been gradually transforming this iconic 1935 Courtenay property on 5th Street into a showcase for their work.

 

When they purchased the home in 2009, it had knob and tube wiring, no insulation, years of wear & tear and just few updates since 1935. Today, it's a bright and airy space with an open floor plan and vintage farmhouse style.

Classic French style landscaping & patio compliments the property and lends an air of opulence.

In a sunny spot in the back yard, a   previously empty space  was replaced with a lavender filled French style potager (kitchen garden) to grow fresh organic veggies.

With this kitchen design & renovation, the couple recycled the cabinets from the  previously dysfunctional kitchen  and installed refinished vintage exterior French doors to stay in budget. A touch of luxe was added with carrara marble counters and stainless appliances.
