To say this small home built in the 30’s needed some TLC would be an understatement. The property belonged to the same family forever. It was well loved and time to sell. The agent had it on the market “as-is,” and they received some pretty disappointing offers.
We swooped to the rescue with repairs, a whole lotta’ white paint, new light fixtures, hardware, and installed some custom furniture we had built to maximize the space and the vibe.
This little surf shack went from Ewww to Ohhhh in the snap of our fingers.

Lots of vintage pieces combined with high style, low-cost pieces, and created a space buyers couldn’t stop thinking about. The sparkly bedroom chandelier brought some glam into the cottage.
Our guest of honor for the day was PeeWee who doesn’t let the fact that he uses a wheelchair to get around stop him from being super sweet and oh so loving. He looks right at home on this rug made to get the point across, don’t you think? That’s always our goal!
A custom-built banquette combined with a vintage rug and pillows and a hyper stylish and affordable tulip table and chairs creates a cozy dining area fit for sandy feet. Our favorite way to add custom art is to take a photo (this one is of the cliff just down the street from the house,) send it to Framebridge who size it and frame it beautifully. It’s a reminder of the beauty of the area outside the house.
Artwork, more usable counter space, and the best hand made hanging serving boards on the wall bring in warmth and function. The movable kitchen cart not only has a butcher block top but it folds up to create even more space in a small space.
The bathroom makeover involved sandblasting the existing iron clawfoot tub, painting everything including the existing tile (yep you can do that,) and installing some new light fixtures. Here’s how we found it:
Everyone who entered fell in love with this little gem, 21 offers and a bidding war later and it went to a school teacher whose parents helped her buy her first home.
The seller spent $5100 and made $115,000 more than the offers coming in before our updates and staging. Whether you have a few or a lot of updates, we can help you too.
