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 on the DIY Network. It airs every Wednesday at 9pm Eastern Time.
Did you watch last night’s episode?? What was your favorite part?
Dueling Fireplaces were the star of last night’s episode. This episode’s renovation took place in a home from the 1700’s. Two fireplaces, side by side in one room, and a foyer needed to be renovated and refreshed and Jeff Devlin and his crew got it done!.
Here’s a little recap in case you missed it…
The home’s foyer was renovated and refreshed. Wainscoting added and painted, and new light fixtures installed. Additionally, a painted checkerboard floor was created. Black stain was used on the wood floors to create a timeless checkerboard pattern. Simple and classic!
The foyer floor pattern was painstakingly planned out, stained, then sanded to create and aged appearance. The 2 inch boarder around the edge anchors the whole pattern. This was one of my favorite paint treatments all season. It looks like its been there for years!
The family’s unused piano was deconstructed and used for wood to build this beautiful pedestal foyer table. The table sits under a period style wrought iron chandelier that the homeowners loved. The scones on the foyer walls coordinated with the chandelier as well.
The “Gentlemen” prints that flank the staircase wall, are all from a vintage Vanity Fair Magazine and were found at Brandywine Antiques , which is one of my favorite spots for unique treasures and antiques.
The duel fireplaces are in the large living room, right off of the foyer. Jeff and his crew added a large rough hewn mantel to unify the two fireplaces.
Two seating areas were created because the family needs room for their large extended family. A television will be mounted above the fireplace in the center panel (where the floral painting is).
Window seat cushions were refreshed with some new fabric and pillows which add more seating for exceptionally large parties.
Who can miss the stone wall? The stone color was beautiful and worked really well with the rest of the room. Luckily we were able to add that gorgeous beaded sconce to the stone wall as well. They crew did a fantastic job revealing, repairing and refreshing the stone wall. A major focal point of the room.
Jeff built the live edge coffee table for the family, which was one of their favorite parts of the whole project. Jeff’s builds are always the highlight of the show. This coffee table fit perfectly in front of the sofa and the wood came straight from the homeowner’s property.
Here’s a little behind the scenes of how we play around with furniture placement and color while designing the room layout. You’ll notice that some things made the cut and some things didn’t. Can you spot the difference between this floor plan and what you saw on the show?
