Stone House Revival Rustic Dining Room and Exterior Facade
Are you a fan of DIY Network’s Stone House Revival?
If you’re new here, let me introduce myself. I am Denise Sabia and I am the design coordinator for DIY Network’s Stone House Revival.
Season 3 premiered a few weeks ago. Stone House is on every Wednesday at 9pm Eastern on the DIY Network.
Did you watch last night’s episode?? What was your favorite part?
Here’s a little recap about the dining room and exterior facade from this week’s episode.
Entry way transformation:
or, as I like to call it, the Menagerie episode.
Almost all of our homeowners are animal lovers. LOT’s of homeowners are animal lovers. I’m sure 90% of the homes we worked on this season had chickens, multiple dogs and cats.
This episode, however, wins the award for most animals. There were ducks, chickens, horses, donkey (?), and dogs. I can not even begin to tell you how many dogs lived here.
First, we started outside.
The entire facade of the house was painted, a roof built over the doorway, dutch door installed, new hardware, solar lanterns, new landscaping, barn-wood lintels added to each window….I’m exhausted just writing this.
You can not image the long hard hours the contractors put in to pull these episodes off. So hats off to SDG for this episode.
This copper roof adds so much character to the formally bare space.
BEFORE-ish (this is actually during the renovation)
Did you catch the lanterns hanging along the side of the house? These are solar lanterns. Since adding electrical in these walls is virtually impossible, we went with solar lanterns hanging from wrought iron hooks. Genius? Yes.
I can vouch for how great the lanterns looked and the cool atmosphere they added to the exterior. I was there one morning before the sun came up to witness the solar lights in action.
Inside the entrance way was more rustic goodness.
The gi-normo stone fireplace was brought back to life (even though it’s not a working fireplace) And it was the perfect place for us to add a buffet.
Walls were painted, repaired and freshen up.
Vertical ship-lap was added to the wall as a wainscoting along with a rustic barn wood cap as a “topper”.
A gorgeous red built in replaced the awkward piece that was there.
A huge improvement was made to the fireplace
Did you realize that this window wall was the other side of Jeff’s build?
Here’s the before image of that side of the room before the wall was built:
Here’s a close up of Jeff’s build. The couple need some type of storage and a place to hang their coats and leashes when they walked in the door. But sine this is also the dining room, Jeff had to come up with a clever idea to give them the storage they needed and still keep the dining room separate.
Jeff added the vintage window to the back of his build to let in light from the existing window across from it.

The built in gives tons of room for hanging storage and storage underneath the bench as well.
The horse shoes were from the homeowner’s beloved horse who passed away. Jeff wanted to incorporate the shoes somehow and he found the perfect spot as drawer pulls.
Now, who’s ready for dinner?
