$12,000 Home Gets a Gorgeous Renovation – Erin'spired – HGTV

we've got a really long long way to go to making it just livable but I want to go beyond that and I want this house to be lovable I want to just have fun with that let's do something we've never done before all right guys Elise Matthews is

precious so when we're thinking about designing for her house think about keeping it very youthful but mostly keeping it as affordable as it can possibly be I really want to stay under $75,000 being a young single woman find something Mac to call home all right this is the

bush house okay this is a $12,000 house but it's important in laurels history it is the last remaining structure of the Bush dairy farm if you grew up in Morrow its very iconic it's been blue since the day it was first painted and I want to keep it

blue this house is situated on such a beautiful property with the lake with all the trees around it so I think we can bring a lot of those nature inspired patterns and colors into the house I agree Alisa is young this means this is not her forever house

so for now let's give her a house that is full of style and it is safe and beautiful we don't want to give her like the luxury sedan it's like that fun car you drive in college yes yes this house didn't really have any design choices of any

kind before I mean it was just a house just a place to make a meal and sleep and then go to work so we've got our work cut out for us to make this house have style and personality hear me out we're not gonna do marble countertops but

have you thought about laminate we've talked about yeah for in the past and I'm kind of excited about laminate it's got a very like marbled look it's almost kind of modern we're not gonna put $4,000 countertops in a 12 if we based all of our decisions around this

that has to happen what if we have fun with the backsplash we can take spray paints vinegar and water to make mirrored mercury glass I love that I look at the backsplash I kind of think it's fun and we can afford it so color if we're going to

kind of go modern and kind of funky and fun it's gorgeous and I love the screen because it's a different green than what we've done in the past it's not quite an olive but the types of warmth to it and it's very sophisticated I don't think anyone's lived

in it for the last like 15 years or so the fireplace is completely rotted the mantel is just like hanging by a thread and it's held together about structural paint the floors are horrible right now we're just gonna cover them up completely with time right good we've done

it before and it's really beautiful I think we keep the woods white it's gonna feel good then the rest of the house we can tone it down on the wall colors because I want to bring in fun and color with furnishing but I was thinking that could probably

go with more of like a matchstick we've got a big window and rights and then add lots of layers of you know kind of color and texture drapery we start with a really clean the bones and then just really adding all of these personalities I don't know what

to do with that bathroom y'all that bathroom is tough I'm just gonna say this is atrocious it's revolting it's a tough tiny space and I think we're also trying to accomplish the laundry area into the equation as well if we add something like a large black honeycomb style

tile that would be a really pretty detail this whole house almost feels like a little bit of and this was beehive e taking out that window and putting the shower and the tub there well actually give you a lot more space to put like vanity I feel like

a big vanity where's she gonna store everything she needs would be a lot more useful than what's there now I want Elise to jump up and down she's so excited when she sees I want her to be overcome with excitement I think that houses like this make my

artistic background shine this backsplash it doesn't have to be tall tiles cool but we can use glass we can make it unexpected and then it's more personal that way it makes it more special typically the houses were working on our forever homes their houses that are gonna be

lived in for many many years to come and we have to have the highest quality lasting durable finishes in every decision but in this house because it's gonna be her home for a few years and then she'll move on you know so make this house perfect for her

right now
