|Here is another old turn of the century Denver Square home in City Park
that we completely remodeled in vintage style. Click on pics to enlarge them
|This is the entry. I knocked the wall out between the entry and the small study on the
other side, which I converted to a bathroom. panels, a desk and even 2 antique
saloon doors and built a hall tree that looks original to the house.
|The original fireplace mantel was worn and non-distinct, so I bought this one at an
architectural salvage, refinished it, replaced the old one and had the grate brass plated.
|This is the study that I converted into a half bath, using vintage
wood, an antique toilet, hexagonal tile, and period wallpaper
|Here is the kitchen before, during and after. I built all the cabinets out of antique wood, antique glass
|The back porch could be condemned, it was in such bad shape: leaking
roof, rotted wood, detached railing, crumbling bricks, holes in the walls
etc. We rebuilt it from top to bottom to look completely new and original.
|This is the 2nd floor hall bath. I relocated the toilet across the
room, built a vanity from antique wood, installed period
fixtures and reproduction wallpaper and tile.
|This is the interior of this back porch before and after
|The coolest part of this house is the loft at the bottom of the page
|This is the view from the original bedroom
door, that got walled up, and this corner
became the shower.
|The original door is now walled up, and a combination of
an actual antique oak pull-chain toilet, leaded glass
panels, antique wood, reproduction tile and fixtures make
this bath look like it would have in 1900.
|I created a bathroom from the smallest bedroom,
with a shower and whirlpool tub surround divided
by an antique leaded glass panel.
|I built this vanity out of a couple old nightstands, an antique
1920s radio cabinet that I refinished, and the 2 doors are
actually antique table leaves.
|One of the highlights of this house is this small 4th bedroom that I converted into the master bath. I walled up the entrance door and the closet door, and created a door
from the master bedroom
|And here are several views of the progress of creating a Victorian style whirlpool bathtub with
telephone style handshower faucet and vintage marble tile.
|2nd floor master bedroom, facing the front yard. I knocked the ceiling
out of the entire room, creating a loft with the attic dormer windows, and
made the rest of the entire house's attic space into a loft, accessed by
a library style ladder from an architectural salvage store.
|Several views of the of the attic loft. Because of the slope of the ceiling walls that
are the roof, dressers would have to stand in the middle of the space, so I built
cabinets and drawers into the wall space around the bottom.
|The 2nd floor master bedroom in various stages. I installed
2 skylights for light, and the ladder is an antique ladder
formerly used by the telephone company to reach the high
circuits, purchased from an architectural salvage company.
|Needless to say, this home sold
immediately after hitting the market,
and it broke the record sales price
for that neighborhood at the time!
