I mentioned briefly in last weekend’s post that we just put our Nashville house on the market. We moved away in 2013 and have lived in Savannah, North Carolina, and Kansas since then, and while we have had really amazing tenants (a few of them were even “famous,” as my daughter says), we know that we won’t live there again. So it was time to let someone else enjoy this great house and wonderful neighborhood.
It was a busy week with lots of showings and several offers; we accepted one of them last weekend and so the house is under contract and moving through escrow.
Whenever we leave a house I like to recap some of the best projects we completed there and this home is no exception.
Probably my favorite space was the laundry room; honestly, I still miss it!
My style has really changed since this photo in 2011–and heaven knows I didn’t know a thing about shooting interiors!–but this space is still a great blank canvas with the chandelier, handpainted “wallpaper,” and cafe shelving.
This sweet little space earned us our first magazine feature.
The pantry also got a facelift. It’s a big corner pantry but it was filled with white wire shelves. They’re kind of my nemesis because they just don’t work well with canned goods. Obviously I always work with what I’ve got, but at this house we were able to rip them out and build really nice solid-surface shelving.

And a chandelier. Because, why not?
Pro tip: add turntables or lazy susans to your corner pantry; it makes it so much easier to get to everything!
We also gave the kitchen a pretty big facelift:
My husband and I also built shelving in the master bathroom and added a chandelier over the tub.
While we did lots of other great projects in this house (beadboard in the powder room, sheers on the screened porch, board and batten in the kids’ bath, a glamorous closet makeover, and more), these are definitely my favorite four projects from our time in this house. We’ll miss it but are so glad that a new family is going to get to enjoy it.
Happy Halloween (I just realized I need to go buy candy!!), and thanks for stopping by.
