I can't tell you how many friends I have made at random through facebook. I'm not sure what that says about me, but I do have a lot of friends that I talk to on a regular basis...that I've never met. Abby Hoppen is one of those people. She found me at random one day after Second Chance Design posted one of my home updates on their page...and the rest is history!

She has many passion projects including her blog, Binks and the Bad Housewife and her store Oh Abigail (now in the old Rebel location on Fulton)! I love following her Pentwater Cottage project and was drawn to this weeks post on her bathroom update. She made some great color choices, but was about to throw in the towel when it didn't turn out the way she had hoped. A quick e-mail later and a Fairly Modern mini-session was underway! 

The biggest goal for me during a mini-session is to compliment what a client already has. There isn't always a need for a full demo and you can certainly get a high-end look on a small budget. For this bathroom, the only major project includes removing the current beadboard and replacing with some inexpensive wood planks. Since she had already put in the time and money to paint, I definitely wanted to compliment that through accessories and simple hardware changes. Needless to say, everything fell into place and Abby now has a solid visual plan to tackle her bathroom as time and budget allow!


Thank you Abby for letting me take on this challenge!
