This charming 3-story historic 1886 home is in the Hollidaysburg neighborhood of Altoona, PA. The owners wanted to make their kitchen and laundry area more functional for their family of five, two dogs and two cats (and two hermit crabs). They also wanted to convert an attic space into a bath, as the home only had 1 1/2 baths. We partially removed the wall

We closed off the door that led to the laundry/bath area, as there was another entrance from the dining area. We constructed a pantry in its place.

We took the original shelving unit that was in the laundry/bath area off the kitchen, removed the doors, painted it and hung it in the kitchen. We copied the bracket design from this piece to make matching brackets for the open shelves and island and seating counter.

We went with open shelves (against the realtor's recommendation of basic cabinets). We wanted to accentuate the high ceilings in the small space and maintain an old school feel of the 1886 home. We patterned the brackets after those on an original built-in piece we moved from the laundry area and positioned over the breakfast bar.

We changed the design mid-process and had two extra wall cabinets we couldn't use so I backed them together, added bead board to each end, matching floor molding and brackets to make a small island. We topped it with carrara marble from the slab used for the counter tops.

We added a breakfast bar from the carrara marble slab under the built-in, using brackets we had custom made to match those on the original piece.

We left the water pipes exposed to maintain the historic look of the house, accenting them with white paint against the blue.

Attic space converted to bath. The realtor wanted me to tile the floor. I adamantly argued against the idea and instead refinished the awesome original pine wood floors after removing some boards and running the plumbing for the new fixtures. After sanding, I finished it with clear satin polyurethane.

We found an antique dresser at a local consignment shop which we used as the upstairs vanity, with a round ceramic vessel bowl and Kohler Fairfax faucet. Lights are from Pottery Barn.

Attic space converted to bath. The owner wanted a free standing claw foot tub. Since we had to carry it up 3 flights of narrow staircases she opted for a classic style acrylic. The two of us were able to maneuver the tub up the stairs ourselves. The look ended up being identical to the cast iron and the acrylic proved to maintain hot water temperatures for nearly an hour, which...More
