The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
It’s been a while since I shared the last fixer upper update. So much has happened since then… this little house has come such a long way and I am so proud of the way it looks.
When we started this adventure, one thing I knew I wanted to do, was to make the entire house feel like it flowed flawlessly from one room to another. When we bought it, it felt very disconnected from each other. Not that the rooms didn’t flow, they did, but it felt hopeless and lost and… pieced together.
From the beginning when we were tearing down walls and changing the floor plan, to when we were instaling the hardwoods and tile, I knew exactly what I wanted it to feel like. The feeling of the home was one of the very most important things to me. It didn’t just need to look like we’d fixed and flipped it, we all know those can look good, bad, cheap, rushed, etc., but I wanted it to feel happy. And clean and fresh and ready. For so long this home sat empty. It needed a family to love it. I no longer walk in and feel it reaching out for help, I feel it shining and smiling… and it’s happy.
One of my favorite parts of this entire process has honestly been picking out the finishing details. Sure, demolition was fun, and I got a kick out of changing the floor plan, but the best part has been bringing in all those details that truly do matter. And seeing everything come together as lovely as it has, well I feel pretty happy too…
There are so many other things that I’ll be sharing as we put the finishing touches on the house, (a full list of sources) but today will specifically be about the cabinet hardware. It’s really taken the cabinets to a whole other level. And, just like the rest of the house, I chose simple hardware to enhance the other finishes…
For the kitchen, I decided on the classic cup pulls…
Paired with matching knobs…
I love their simplicity.
And since the laundry room is visible from the kitchen, and vise versa…
The cabinet pulls tied it all together by being the same color…
Because we have a whole wall of floor to ceiling cabinets (swoon), I wanted hardware that would be big enough, and simple enough, to grab your attention at first glance…
Plus, it ties in perfectly with the dark wood tones of the built in bench and the shelf on the coat rack…
And, truth be told, I love how much they stick out from the cabinet….
So, those three hardware styles are carried throughout the house. From the hall bathroom…
To the master bathroom…
It all feels the same, and I’m thrilled about it. No longer does it have the pieced together, forgotten, lonely feeling.
Even with all the small things we need to finish up: misc. trim, baseboards, touch up painting, adding appliances, etc., this home is shinning. And because we are sooo close, I’ll probably only share a few other quick updates before the big reveal. I can remember what the house looked like before we started tearing into it, but I’m really excited to see those side by side before and after pictures.
P.S. A big THANK YOU to D. Lawless Hardware for supplying all the cabinet hardware.

Holy moly! Whoever ends up living there is so lucky! I am so jealous of that laundry room!
This looks great! I wish I lived nearby, I would jump at the chance to live there! Cannot wait to see all of the before and afters.
I love it! Those are the type of pulls we used in our kitchen and I think they look so nice. (P.S. I also live in CO and I love your blog 🙂 )
I am looking for this exact same hardware for my house! Could you please tell me the names of the items you chose? Thanks! Ditto on the laundry room comment 🙂
Nevermind…. found the links!
Oooohhhh girl. You’ve got the touch. That kitchen… and the laundry room built-ins.
(and I never say that!)
So gorgeous Shayna!!
What a beautiful job you have done! LOVE your choices…. you know, your kitchen looks a lot like mine! I have lived in this kitchen for almost 20 years and I still am thrilled with it! I know you will be too! Very updated touches!!!
It’s just stunning, Shayna! Great job!
oh Shayna!!! I’m loving it a llllllllllll 🙂
Love it! Very similar to our kitchen redo. What will you be doing with the house? Is is a flip it project that you will be selling, or is it a rental? Lookin good! I love white kitchens and also the flooring you have in the bathroom. Great job!
It looks gorgeous! I love love love all the cabinet hardware and it truly does flow from one room to other.
I love what you have done, but I would like to suggest changing the hinges on the doors. If you are putting a rubbed bronze on everything else, then the hinges should be too. It is all in the details…. Take it from someone who has staged many homes!
Gaaaahhh! I’m OBSESSED with everything. It looks amazing…when can I move in?? 😉
Any more recent updates? I’m curious what happened to your fixer upper house.
[…] and I know the Fixer Upper has completely dropped off the surface of this blog (whoops!), and many of you are wondering about […]
Could you tell me more about the kitchen sink that you used? I’m redoing my kitchen and want to use a sink similar but am having a hard time finding one that will work with laminate counters.
